A special edition of the Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round-Up (CRU leak/hack edition:
Here’s a bonus round-up of all things CRU hack/leak. The Global Warming Hoax Weekly Round Up will still appear here on Thursday, fear not.
The site at the center of the storm is Climate Audit, Steve McIntyre’s web lair. If you have trouble getting it to load (because lots of people just discovered that the science isn’t settled), try the mirror site.
Already there are calls for a public enquiry in the UK, and you can bet that Michael Mann’s involvement will interest Senator Inhofe. It’s about time someone took Mann to task, that Miami Vice remake was terrible.
Gore Lied has a good chronology of how it all started, Genesis of a Hack/Leak
The Air Vent, where the files first appeared, finds Collusion, Corruption, Manipulation and Obstruction, and that’s just for starters.
Dr. Tim Ball (more of him below) sees the leak as the death blow to climate science. Heh.
Powerline takes a look at the less than purist scientific method of the motley CRU.
In climate science, the results are fitted to the agenda.
What the leak/hack has done is simple but devastating, it has destroyed the IPCC’s credibility. As polls around the world show the public suffering from green fatigue, you can guarantee that some politicians will use the scandal to delay and eventually back away from what will soon be a toxic mess.
The Inconvenient Emails/Data
It didn’t take long for the enterprising blogger at An Elegant Chaos to compile the data into a searchable form. Go there and see what you can find, there’s still lots to go through.
Andrew Bolt, an inconvenient Aussie, details some of the more egregious emails and finds so-called leading scientific minds colluding to ruin the careers of those that disagree:
I will be emailing the journal to tell them I’m having nothing more to do with it until they rid themselves of this troublesome editor… It results from this journal having a number of editors. The responsible one for this is a well-known skeptic in NZ. He has let a few papers through by Michaels and Gray in the past. I’ve had words with Hans von Storch about this, but got nowhere. Another thing to discuss in Nice !
That pesky hockey stick, and its author, Michael Mann, are at the center of the CRU hack/leak.
Bishop Hill has a great summary of some of the emails, revealing a thread of censorship and bunker mentality protectionism among the world’s leading climate ’scientists’.
Why the leak matters, from a Brit devil.
Alan Caruba has a lot to say about what the leaked data tells us about the scientists and the science behind the great global warming hoax.
The scientists charlatans revealed by the CRU leak prefer to focus on the legality of the data’s release, but in the end, it might be themselves on the wrong side of the law. Misleading governments, denying fair FOIA requests and deleting data are all serious no-no’s and the actions have consequences.
Even believers are having a hard time swallowing the science now the deception is revealed.
While early analysis and headlines have been based on the emails leaked, it may be that more damaging evidence lies in the code that was leaked.
Slimate scaremongers have a long record of discounting skeptical research from any scientist that received so much as a free mug with a tank of gas. How inconvenient then that we can see exactly how much money the motley CRU received from Big Green.
There’s much, much more at The Daily Bayonet, including reaction from hippies, and a special Hacker Hottie. Go there now.
