Skip to comments.Newspapers Retract 'Climategate' Claims, but Damage Still Done

...not only did British investigators clear the East Anglia scientist at the center of it all, Phil Jones, of scientific impropriety and dishonesty in April, an investigation at Penn State cleared PSU climatologist Michael Mann of falsifying or suppressing data, intending to delete or conceal e-mails and information, and misusing privileged or confidential information in February.
In perhaps the biggest backpedaling, The Sunday Times of London, which led the media pack in charging that IPCC reports were full of egregious (and probably intentional) errors, retracted its central claimnamely, that the IPCC statement that up to 40 percent of the Amazonian rainforest could be vulnerable to climate change was unsubstantiated. The Times also admitted that it had totally twisted the remarks of one forest expert to make it sound as if he agreed that the IPCC had screwed up, when he said no such thing.

Newsweek has to be excerpted.
Ed’s idiot wife wrote this?
And it lies on purpose.
And it lies all the time.
The usual Newsweek Cover-up.
I thought they were closing this unpopular propaganda rag down?
This story turns out to be false.
We have to admit that if the evidence shows it is false.
However...it seems to me that "Climategate" is aptly-named. As with Watergate, the initial crime is only the beginning of the real story. What Climategate did was open up the debate and let more people chime in with more data showing this stuff is bull.
The genie is out of the bottle, for which we should be grateful. But if we're to have anymore integrity than those we bash, we have to admit to the truth, and in this case, we can't just say "Oh, they're lying!" when we believed these sources when their stories seemed to support our side.
Do it Al, do it!!!
Do it Al, do it!!!
The doors to Newsweek are not shut yet? =.=
Hmm..that seems impossible as any mathematical equation requires some modicum of source accuracy even for projections, the books were cooked as the emails showed, and yet there is newsweak claiming that the “Emperor Does Have Clothes”?
I’m calling Bravo Sierra.
That’s great and you rock!
I also notice newsweak does not actually quote the investigation’s findings, who the investigators were, and the scope they claim to have remained substantiated.
Sorry Newsweak, try again.
We’ve concluded our investigation on our complicity in this debacle and we find that the evidence fails to support our intentional effort to subvert the truth of the matter; which is that truth is a slippery element of conjecture that can only be pinned down if the sun, moon, and stars are perfectly aligned on every bowling Thursday at Ray’s Hyper-Bowl in Topeka, Kansas...in odd years.
These marxist morons have every intention of trying to rehabilitate their bogus horsesh*t any way they can.
Even the hockey stick?
i’m with you on this one. i’m having a hard time understanding where the vindication is in all these reports. perhaps i’m just wore out from work tonight, but i also after reading them came away with the feeling that they sent in their own guys who came back and basically said “ no, really...they weren’t fudging with the data and i can prove it because they told me so, and they wouldn’t lie.” to which the investigators reply, “great! thats all we wanted to know. thanks so much for clarifying!” case closed. maybe i just need a nap, but i’m not seeing anyone pointing to any evidence that would prove their theory. someone please set me straight, i like to base my opinions on facts.
That site will get no hits from me.
Anyway, That fraud at Penn State, Michael Mann, was "cleared" by - - Penn State! IIRC, Mann still faces futher investigations. Sharon Begley wrote this silly piece, which naturally was enthusiastically published by a Democrat party organ, like a child who was just offered proof that there is no Santa Claus. She may as well scrunch her eyes shut, clamp her hands over her ears, and chant "lalalalalalalalala...."
That even the Liberals don’t believe global warming is shown in how fast they switched their mantra to “climate change” from “global warming”.
Climate change covers about any and everything, and nothing.
Total bogus cause.
Hot in summer and cold in winter = “climate change”
We must raise taxes and energy bills of everyone to make an end to hot summers and cold winters.
