  • Climategate: How to Hide the Sun

    The Climategate crowd successfully worked to obscure the connection between solar activity and climate. The leaked CRU e-mails reveal how. In 2003, two Harvard-Smithsonian Professors, Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas, published a peer-reviewed paper in the scientific journal Climate Research which identified solar activity as a major influence on Earth's climate. This paper also concluded that the twentieth century was not the warmest, nor was it the century with the most extreme weather over the past thousand years. These two scientists reviewed more than two hundred sources of data. The paper specifically examined climate variations observed to coincide with solar...

    Climate Change: A peer-reviewed study by a respected Canadian physicist blames the interplay of cosmic rays and chlorofluorocarbons for 20th-century warming. The CFCs are now gone, and so is warming — perhaps for the next 50 years. Much of the nation got a white Christmas this year, some in unprecedented quantities. A record-breaking storm deposited 12 to 30 inches of snow in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Many places set records for the most snow in a single December day as more than 50% of the U.S. was covered by the white stuff. Scientists (and here we use the word...

    The global warming jamboree in Copenhagen was surely the most outlandish foray into intellectual fantasizing since the fourth-century Christian bishops assembled in 325 AD for the Council of Nicaea to debate whether God the Father was supreme or had to share equal status in the pecking order of eternity with his Son and the Holy Ghost. Shortly before the Copenhagen summit, the proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) were embarrassed by a whistleblower who put on the Web more than a thousand e-mails either sent from or received at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit, headed by Dr....

    The UK Meteorological Office released what it described as temperature data for over a century and a half from more than 1500 land weather stations throughout the world, along with what the Met Office described as the code used to plot temperature trends for the time frame in question. But the data are apparently not the raw data, and questions remain as to the validity of the adjustment of the data, an inconsistency in reporting a lack of valid temperature measurements in one year, and the accuracy of the source code. John Graham-Cummings... That's a bit odd, but not serious....

    There also is nothing in the record to suggest a hacking.

Yet whichever it was changes nothing about the substance, all of which is found in documents subject to the UK’s freedom of information act. Which raises the second, ultra-whiny complaint sniffing about “private emails”. Actually, in looking into this I have yet to see one private email. So far I have only found more than a thousand emails subject to...

And, most important, is The Times being cavalier about a story that could change our understanding of global warming? Or, as The Times’s John Broder, who covers environmental issues in Washington, put it, “When does a story rise to three-alarm coverage?” …The biggest question is what the messages amount to — an embarrassing revelation that scientists...

Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, a vice-chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said that the theft from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was not the work of amateur climate sceptics, but was a sophisticated and well-funded attempt to destroy public confidence in the science of man-made climate change.

The nature of that risk has been twofold: First, that the claims of the climate scientists might buckle beneath the weight of their breathtaking complexity. Second, that the crudeness of modern politics, once in motion, would trample the traditions and culture of science to achieve its own policy goals. With the scandal at the East Anglia Climate Research Unit, both have happened at once....

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market advocacy group, is arguing that U.S. EPA's climate policies rely on raw data that have been destroyed and are therefore unreliable. The nonprofit group -- a staunch critic of U.S. EPA's efforts to regulate greenhouse gases -- petitioned the agency last week to reopen the public comment period on its proposed "endangerment finding" because the data set had been lost (E&ENews PM, Oct. 9).

The hidden data is that of Keith Briffa, a fellow climate scientist (and warmist) at East Anglia. Briffa compiled tree-ring data to obtain global temperature estimates back to 1400. But there was a problem with the tree-ring data, from the warmist perspective. The tree ring data showed pronounced cooling beginning in the mid-20th century. This was at variance with some ground temperature measurements (so we are told- the actual raw...

    The Daily Collegian[Penn State] ^ | 12/1/09 | Laura Nichols
    While some scientists involved in the international scandal now known as "Climategate" have admitted some raw data supporting the man-made global warming theory is now missing, the Penn State professor em-broiled in the controversy said the data in question has nothing to do with any of his work. But when reached Monday, Penn State meteorology professor Michael Mann was able to offer some explanation as to why the data is now unavailable.... The missing data concerns surface temperatures from around the globe collected by a group within the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit, Mann said. A lot of...

    The recent revelations of misrepresentation by CRU scientists about research on climate change should come as no surprise. Scientists, like all human beings, are sometimes tempted to lie or cheat and occasionally they succumb to those temptations. Actually, scientists don't do too badly. According to a recent analysis of surveys of scientific misconduct: "In surveys asking about the behavior of colleagues, fabrication, falsification, and modification [of data] had been observed, on average, by over 14% of respondents, and other questionable practices [such as 'dropping data points based on a gut feeling', and 'changing the design, methodology or results of a...

    ClimateGate: Britain's Climate Research Unit now says it will release all its data. Does that include the data that have been shredded, deleted and denied publication? In a statement released Saturday by the University of East Anglia, where the CRU is located, it was announced that all unit data, including data that had been denied climate skeptics, would soon be released to prove this is much ado about nothing. Unimpressed by the news is David Holland of Northampton, a grandfather with a background in electrical engineering, who is seeking prosecution of the CRU scientists involved in suppressing and even destroying...

    I'd rather not know: the psychology of climate denialPARIS, Dec 1 (AFP) Dec 01, 2009 If the evidence is overwhelming that man-made climate change is already upon us and set to wreak planetary havoc, why do so many people refuse to believe it? The UN's panel of climate scientists, in a landmark report, described the proof of global warming as "unequivocal." That was two years ago, and since then hundreds of other studies have pointed to an ever-bleaker future, with a potential loss of life numbering in the tens of millions, if not more. Yet survey after survey from around...

    The CRU Crew of liars and scientific frauds of the UK have been driving the climate fraud campaign for years. They shaped the corrupt and ridiculous IPCC UN report, designed to empower the Green Corruptocracy as the new international Ruling Class.  Now that they have been finally, and devastatingly exposed to the world -- including the British media, the BBC (reluctantly), the Guardian, the Times and the Telegraph, and the Daily Mail, which is smelling a huge scandal that will bring down the Labour Party (socialist).   The one thing the Brits still pride themselves on is their world class science....

    A short teaser. More later, when I have more time. There are several good posts and threads of comments on Man Made Global Warming (AGW for the PC) on the Volokh Conspiracy. Ilya Somin’s recent post, yesterday,entitled “‘Climategate’ and the Social Validation of Knowledge” is worth looking at. some of the posts are well reasoned explanations in layman’s terms of what the scientific method is, and how it works, and why that shows the problems in treating the UN’s reports on Climate Change as scientific. Political tracts? Yes, absolutely. Good, sound science? Not really. The big problem is, much of...

    Have you been keeping up with this Climategate story? If you limit your information gathering to The New York Times, you may have missed it. Let’s start at the beginning. Where did this global warming nonsense come from in the first place? See how this fits: The international community, working through the basically anti-American United Nations, starts dreaming of world-wide wealth redistribution. Well … actually wealth isn’t distributed, at least not here in the United States. Here, for the most part, it is earned. Even the poor, poor pitiful poor in this country earn whatever wealth they have. They don’t...

    Anyone who doubts just how corrupt the MSM is can do a simple test to prove without a shadow of a doubt, exactly how they conspire to suppress stories harmful to the left-wing globalist agenda. Thanks to Google or other search engines, you can easily see how a story is promoted/reported... or not. The MSM can decide what is news, and they have decided that Climategate is not. This test searches a number of leading news sites for the term "climategate". This test is quite revealing, for on the left-wing sites where it appears - which are very few -...

    Cracks appear in armor keeping climate scandal from television news!They say that if you didn't see it on television it didn't happen. For the overwhelming number of Americans who get little or no news from any other source that's definitely true. So, it shouldn't surprise us if most Americans don't know that the science upon which all global warming theory rests is riddled with fraud, incompetence and corruption. Daily, the number of newspaper stories surrounding the climategate global warming scandal grows. And yet, television news has almost entirely ignored the problem. There have been more stories on the Washington, D.C....

    If you have not delved into the thousands of e-mail messages and files hacked from the computers of British climate scientists, let me give you the closest thing to an executive summary. It is taken from a file slugged HARRY_READ_ME, which is the log of a computer expert’s long struggle to make sense of a database of historical temperatures. Here is Harry’s summary of the situation: Aarrggghhh! -snip- In fact, one skeptic raised this very issue about tree-ring data in a comment posted in 2004 on RealClimate, the blog operated by climate scientists. The comment, which questioned the propriety of...

    Louisville Public Policy Examiner ^ | November 30 2009 | Thomas McAdam
    A lot of inconvenient truths are starting to appear in the battle over global warming. Even the term, “global warming” is being attenuated by retrenching environmentalists. The preferred term is now “climate change.” This shift in language was occasioned by the unexpected observation that, for the last eleven years, the Earth’s average temperatures have been cooling. So much for Michael Mann’s vaunted “hockey stick” chart, which predicted we would all be cooked in our greenhouse by the end of this century. Last week, in what many are calling “the worst scientific scandal of our generation,” someone—it is not for certain...

    Climate change researchers must believe in the reality of global warming just as a priest must believe in the existence of God.Last year, ExxonMobil donated $7 million to a grab-bag of public policy institutes, including the Aspen Institute, the Asia Society and Transparency International. It also gave a combined $125,000 to the Heritage Institute and the National Center for Policy Analysis, two conservative think tanks that have offered dissenting views on what until recently was called—without irony—the climate change "consensus." To read some of the press accounts of these gifts—amounting to about 0.0027% of Exxon's 2008 profits of $45 billion—you...
