Climategate Round-Up #4

By Editor Climategate, CRU Leak/Hack Round-Up Comments Off on Climategate Round-Up #4

A fresh Climategate link fest from The Daily Bayonet:

Welcome to the fourth thrilling instalment of the CRU hack/leak round-up.  Since the scandal is now popularly known as climategate, I’ve adjusted the post title to reflect the will of the people.  Because that’s how it’s supposed to be.

If you’re new to climategate, a good place to pick up how this got started and why it matters is here: Climategate for Dummies.

Climate Depot also has lots of continually updated stories on climategate and there is a handy video who’s who at WUWT.

For fun, read the round-up and then take the Climategate quiz at The Shadowlands.

Climategate Data & Fallout

After the initial rush to comb through the leaked emails, it looks like the real undoing for the motley CRU will be their code.  It gets picked apart here, with shocking results.

Calls for a criminal investigation begin:

As the impact of the leaked emails sinks in, the CRU ’scientists’ reputations sink to charlatans and thieves.

An IPCC scientist calls for Michael Mann and the motley CRU to be fired from the UN’s climate fiction organization because they are ‘no longer credible.’

Another scientist wants to go further and suggests that the IPCC itself has passed its best-before date.  Watt’s has more of Mike Hulme’s IPCC deathwatch.

One defense of global warming science says that the CRU leak involves only a few scientists and that does not affect the overall conclusion that the planet is about to boil us all into vapor.  That defense ignores the inconvenient truth that the scientists caught burying data, manipulating results and generally behaving badly lead the global warming charge and have the ear of policymakers.

Rigging peer review damaged the very process that scaremongers cry means everything when faced with inconvenient skeptical scientists.  Heh.

Piers Corbyn calls for Hopenchangen in Copenhagen to be canceled.  Good idea, but then where would all the hypocrites go?

Dodgy science gets us all off the hook.

Michael Mann will be investigated for his part in Climategate.  To be fair, one of the emails connected to Mann is from CRU asking him to delete emails related to AR4 but there is no evidence he did any such thing.  He faked the hockey stick and manipulates data like a fiend, so there’s enough rope to hang him with without guessing what he might or might not have deleted.

The IPCC, surrounded.

Hide the decline, redux.

If that whet your appetite for even more clickable Climategate links, you’ll have to transport yourself to The Daily Bayonet for even more of the latest Climategate links. There’s a special Climategate Hottie waiting for you there, and my personal favorite section, “Hippies Heads Exploding”.

To satisfy your cravings for anything Climategate related, with a little schadenfreude-laden snark thrown in, The Daily Bayonet has done it again:

It’s Black Friday in America, and you can bet that the mood of climate alarmists is as dark when they discover that the holiday has done nothing to dampen public enthusiasm for ‘climategate’ news.

Here’s the third Round-Up, you can see the first here and the second here.  If you missed the regular edition of the Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up, it’s here. Enjoy.

The Leak/Hack

The San Francisco Chronicle covers the ‘hack’ but fails to look at what the released emails and data might mean.  The paper interviewed a series of invested climate scaremongers to assure the Left Coasties that  there is nothing to see here, move along.

As goes the UK climate science credibility, so goes Middle Earth’s too?

If you don’t yet understand why the leak/hack is such big news, it’s because the people are involved shape the science, and the debate.  Here is an excellent chart that shows the relative email hierarchy of those exposed in the CRU leak.

The Inconvenient Emails/Data

The leaked CRU emails exposed bad behaviour, the code exposes junk science manipulated beyond the point where even the manipulators cannot figure out if it means anything:

I am very sorry to report that the rest of the databases seem to be in nearly as poor a state as
Australia was. There are hundreds if not thousands of pairs of dummy stations, one with no WMO
and one with, usually overlapping and with the same station name and very similar coordinates. I
know it could be old and new stations, but why such large overlaps if that's the case? Aarrggghhh!
There truly is no end in sight.

The Willis Eisenbach connection.  If you don’t know ’bout Willis, read the link.

Steve McIntyre explains the now infamous  ‘trick’ to hide the decline.

What do the emails show, apart from bullying and data manipulation?  How about total disregard for the scientific process.

The motely CRU’s emails and garbage code has all been too much for James Delinpole, in fact he’s so excited that he’s comparing the leak with the fall of the Berlin Wall, then writes something about zombie Reagan.  Good times.

The evidence of AGW that, well, wasn’t.

The UN IPCC decided that hiding the decline was perfectly fine.

Has the UK whitewash already begun? Remember this old adage, it’s not the crime that kills you, it’s the cover-up.

If you can believe it, you’re only about half done with this Climategate link-fest extravaganza.  For the rest, you’ll have to report to The Daily Bayonet.
