A lot of stuff was written about climategate over the last few days, here is a selection of some of the more interesting or salacious stuff. Of note is that this morning, CNN reported extensively on climategate, even sending John Roberts to the UK to report from the University of East Anglia campus. Tonight (Monday 7th) Campbell Brown’s show is on the topic “Global Warming: Truth or Trick.” For alarmists, the dam has burst on their hoax. On the opening day of the climate-a-palooza in Copenhagen, CNN has dedicated coverage to climategate, and that is just one more inconvenient truth. UPDATE: CNN video: ..
Climategate Inconvenient Emails/Data
Prof. Jones, the deleter in chief of the CRU, is helping police with their enquiries. But it’s not what you think, yet. Follow the money, the research money, to see how filthy lucre results in dirty science. The reckless ideology that drove the climategate scientists to hide declines, manipulate data, bully colleagues and ignore FOIA demands may have far reaching consequences for science and the credibility of scientists in every field of academic endeavor. Which is why the guilty must be identified, isolated, investigated and, where appropriate, prosecuted. The motley CRU have people everywhere, as this discovery in California shows. As the University of East Anglia conducts an investigation into the CRU emails and the Met. Office prepares to revisit 160 years of data, the UK government tries to shut the investigations down because it will give ammunition to skeptics. So much for the scientific method then. Is an important email missing from the leak, or was the deletion of data not accidental? The CRU hack or leak might have been one successful attempt of many to uncover the scandalous behaviour of the global warming alarmists. The smoking code. Revenge of the climate modellers, part deux.
Climategate in the Media
The New York Times, stung by criticism over their tardy response to climategate, finally has something to say on the matter. The only honest man at the CBC, Rex Murphy, wades in on the scandal: .. Forbes asks why Obama’s administration won’t acknowledge climategate. Note to Forbes, see also, Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, ACORN and crasher-gate. The Washington Post on the pseudo-science cesspool. Ouch. The Globe and Mail finally notices climategate, and focuses on the timing of the scandal. The BBC notices the CRU leak, and the fact that the CRU code is junk. Video at the link.
Exploding Hippie Heads
A selection of scary quotes, in handy video format. The believers are now deniers, as their neo-religion collapses, all they have left is dogma. Despite the hippies best efforts to pretend that their global warming hoax is not fatally wounded, climategate matters. Britain’s Prime Minister, a man desperate to pass global warming legislation to raise taxes that will bail him out from a decade of disastrous Labour government, calls skeptics ‘flat-earthers’. Will the curse of Jonah Brown strike now that he has defended climategate? Climategate gets more Dr. Strangelove by the day, now thee rumor is that the Russki’s hacked CRU. Climate scientists might be learned, but they don’t learn. The motley CRU were exposed as bunker-mentality bullies when it came to skeptical colleagues, behaviour for which they have been rightly vilified. But Michael Schlesinger still threatens a NYT journalist with ‘being cut-off’ from sources for his coverage of climategate:
Shame on you for this gutter reportage. [Emphasis added.]
This is the second time this week I have written you thereon, the first about giving space in your blog to the Pielkes.
The vibe that I am getting from here, there and everywhere is that your reportage is very worrisome to most climate scientists.
Of course, your blog is your blog.
But, I sense that you are about to experience the ‘Big Cutoff’ from those of us who believe we can no longer trust you, me included.
Unbelievable and unacceptable.
What are you doing and why?
The Telegraph’s religion correspondent, Will Heaven, still thinks the latest religion can survive climategate.
