Posted on 11/28/2009 6:05:06 PM PST by azkathy
Breaking news last week featured in the Wall Street Journal and Fox News has featured the story and data released by an unknown hacker or whistleblower that appears to be obtained from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, England.
There has been confirmation from Steve McIntyre, a climate scientist who is featured and attacked in the leaked information that seems to verify its authenticity. McIntyre was not one of the elite group from the CRU, but one of many scientists who has been seeking data and facts through a freedom of information request.
Requests for data to support the claims of the CRU scientists have come into question on prior occasions and many people have tried to obtain the information utilized by this group of scientists. The group is responsible for the now infamous hockey stick graph that supposedly illustrated increasing temperatures and, therefore, that man is causing global warming.
This is a very critical point to understand since man-caused global warming is the current subject of political debate and policy making around the world. The group of researchers at CRU is heavily involved in the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and has been considered the authoritative source for policies and procedures currently under development with the United Nations, Great Britain, the United States and other countries.
The information that is now widely available on the Internet calls into question the business and scientific practices of this influential group of people. There are years of e-mail correspondence between members of the group that illustrate their attempt to avoid freedom of information requests, tampering with the scientific data to meet their warming agenda, suppression of data that contradicted their theories, and manipulating the peer review process that helps to separate fact from theory and agendas.
The documents released make it clear that this particular situation involved a notable University of Arizona climate change scientist by the name of Jonathan Overpeck.
The university issued a press release regarding Jonathan Overpeck in 2007 that seems to confirm his involvement, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was one of the winners of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, and a professor at The University of Arizona was one of only 33 lead authors on an IPCC assessment report released earlier this year.
Overpeck, director of the University of Arizonas Institute for the Study of Planet Earth and professor of geosciences and atmospheric sciences, was a coordinating lead author of a chapter on Paleoclimate, for the IPCCs fourth assessment report.
This is pretty awesome, Overpeck was quoted as saying in the news release. So much work went into this on the part of so many scientists. The recognition is a reflection of the impact that climate science is having. Its also a reflection that society is moving from questioning climate change to realizing that its happening and discuss what to do about it.
The fourth assessment report, which focused on the science of climate change, presented expert consensus on greenhouse gas levels, global land and ocean temperatures, sea level rising, changes in sea ice and predictions of future change.
However, it now appears that Overpeck and others have manipulated the science and the consensus they claim to have. Perhaps congressional hearings will help to determine Overpecks role in this situation.
In addition to these problems, the attempts to brainwash the public are evident. CRU apparently utilized a public relations firm to communicate its climate change message. Most notable is the statement, Changing attitudes toward climate change is not like selling a particular brand of soap, its like convincing someone to use soap in the first place. Another one of the PR rules is, Everyone must use a clear and consistent explanation of climate change.
Before you take start purchasing carbon credits, I suggest you peruse the documents and e-mails that were leaked and are available in a searchable database at www.anelegantchaos.org/cru/search.php.
One of my kids misguided friend is distraught and refuses to accept she’s been duped by the libs. She’s going through the classic denial symptoms. Kind of like Ed Begley Jr. You feel sorry for them in a way, they BELIEVED, REALLY AND TRULY WITH ALL THEIR HEART AND SOUL. I’m not talking about your socialist libs who want to control the world, but those who’ve been sucked into the libs’ world. They have to rethink their purpose in life, and I’ll bet we have converted more with this revelation. It’s really shattered their their world view.
I know there are many that will struggle with this but I feel it is such an opportunity to educate our fellow Americans on the “global warming agenda” and stop Cap and Trade.
I saw Ed Begley on a Fox news spot after the scandal broke and he was sooo upset he was shaking his finger at the reporter.
Plus, I have been encouraging a couple of environmental reporters to cover the story. I know they won’t but that should help enlighten a few people as to how biased they truly are.
You’d think that if they REEEALLLY cared about the planet, they’d be CELEBRATING that Earth’s future is NOT as dire as the global warming quacks had been claiming (and getting rich at the gullible public’s expense).
You got it! I just posted.
For an encore, you might suggest that the University of Arizona owes its students an apology as well as a full refund of tuition, lab fees and textbooks for each course the university taught involving man-made global warming, probably going back at least ten years
The faculty involved should be terminated from the university and prosecuted for fraud.
After all, the punishment should fit the crime.
You see, their worldview has been etched for years by libs, and they have to rethink their entire existence. Those are the people who I “kind of feel sorry for” because they were true believers. They got screwed by their own people, and they know it. They just can’t accept it right now. They’re struggling with reality. It’s kind of sad, and comical. All their friends told them so. And, they have to come to grips with, ‘they were misled’. It’s human nature. I believe the majority of them will be converted to conservatism, just because they were so lied to and are seeking truth. Conservative explore truth, libs advance a socialist agenda. The dupees want truth, and they have to go through the stages of denial. Ed Begley. He’s a classic symptom.
Oh, Wall Street Journal and Fox News featured the story and data released.
No wonder Fox is getting the jesse treatment.
TRUE or FALSE Global Poverty Act (S.243) was the only Bill that Obama ever submitted while he was a Senator.
TRUE... The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.
Former Senator and Vice President Al Gore seen here en-route back to prison after a federal appeals court refused to review his 20 year sentence for his lead role as spokesperson in the Climategate fraud conspiracy. The same court recently rejected the appeals of the lengthy sentences of the 137 alleged UN scientists Gores co-conspirators for falsifying data supporting so-called Cap and Trade legislation that trial testimony disclosed would have virtually destroyed what remained of the U.S. economy while unjustly enriching Gore and a cabal of insiders.
Can we start hanging them yet?
Just an FYI, if you X out of the article and go back to the link you can keep recommending comments that show globull warming is bull.
Just posted some links for your readers to check out.
We have always been at war with East Anglia.
I read that, very good!
We need to keep driving this home every day as many times as we can, because the State-run media will do all they can to cover this up.
You are correct and that is exactly why I wrote the article. I used to write articles to counter the environMentalists after the Rodeo Chediski Fire in AZ. They tried to blame the ranchers and the timber industry (they had already sued them out of existence but they still tried to blame them.)
I decided the enviro’s would be submitting tons of articles/letters to the editor in support of Globull Warming after this fiasco so I thought my timing would be right for submitting the article. (When I found the AZ connection, that made it relevant to our state and the US.)
You make an excellent point, now to find some Uof A parents who aren’t liberal. (I will have to think about that and see how I might reach them.)
The AZ Daily Star is a terribly liberal paper so I believe they will just ignore this story.
It surprises me that so many people who have been made to look like fools by the crooked climate scientists rush to the defense of these frauds rather than demand that they be jailed. I suppose its no easy task for people to admit to themselves and to the world that they have been fools all along, but sooner or later they’ll have to man up.
