Climategate Round-Up #6

By Editor Climategate Comments Off on Climategate Round-Up #6

As the Climategate bus keeps chugging along, The Daily Bayonet keeps the links a comin’:

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.

There’s lots more to click on, including my personal favorite “Hippies Heads Exploding”, but you’ll likely be partial to the Climategate Hottie.  Go to The Daily Bayonet now, and start clicking!

Climategate Round-Up #5

By Editor Climategate Comments Off on Climategate Round-Up #5

Yet another fresh Climategate Round-Up via The Daily Bayonet:

Welcome to the 5th round-up of all things climategate.  Global warming alarmists will deny that this post can exist because there is no such thing as climategate, otherwise they’d have seen it on CNN.

Anyone interested in what’s really news, grab a beverage and continue reading, those interested in Tiger Woods or DC party crashers should watch CNN or lobotomize themselves with a salmon, it’s your choice.

Climategate Data & Fallout

One of the things exposed in the leaked documents and emails: ‘smug groupthink‘.

The IPCC is tarnished by association with climategate ’scientists’, and may be too politicized to survive.  It doesn’t help when you have a runaway railway engineer at the head of the IPCC making scaremonger quotes like this:

“There are enough technologies in existence to allow for mitigation,” he said. “At some point we will have to cross over and start sucking some of those gases [CO2] out of the atmosphere.”

An Army of Davids carry the climategate torch whilst the majority of the MSM studiously ignore it and pretend that Tiger Woods is news.  Kudos to Fox for giving the issue real attention.

The BBC paid a private green firm to indoctrinate train its presenters and staff on how to toe the Big Green line.  Maybe the recently suspended Phil Jones can help out?

Australia’s opposition leader lost his job over his plan to support the Rudd government’s ETS policy.  Then that policy was destroyed by a climategate emboldened opposition under a new, skeptical, leader.  It’s still not news?

Dr. Tim Ball, who must feel vindicated by the CRU scandal, names names of those that perverted science in the name of a global warming ideology.

Phil Jones, the CRU Director, steps down.  It’s temporary pending the investigation by the EAU, but it’s a clear sign that there is substance to climategate, something the warmists have denied to date.

Lord Monckton wasted no time, he’s got a book out on climategate already.  Link to the PDF here.

The IPCC should erase any work that relies on Phil Jones and CRU data. Pretty much all of it, then.

John Holdren will be investigated for his links to climategate.  Obama warms up the underside of his bus…

Malpractice is an ugly word, but that’s what global warming scientists and their cheering section in politics and the media have conspired to achieve.

If there is one academic that has earned respect during the climategate affair, it’s Judith Curry, the chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology.  See why she deserves respect hereA letter from her is here, and is equally fair.  Perhaps this is the kind of person that can restore trust in science and the scientific process.

It’s not yet time to rest your clickering finger, because you’re just getting started. Click here and transport yourself to The Daily Bayonet for even more clickable Climategate links. My personal favorite part is titled, “Hippies Heads Exploding”, but perhaps you’ll be more enthused by the Climategate Hottie.

First, Watts Up With That reported that the popular Google search term “global warming” had been passed by “Climategate” in the total number of search results.  Next, GORE LIED  reported that as the number of search results had continued to climb, “Climategate” had even passed former Vice President and man-made global warming huckster Al Gore in search results.  Today, as the “Climategate” tsunami grows ever larger on the blogosphere, and the Internet in general, the Google search term “Climategate” has even left “Barack Obama” in its dust:



Is there anything search term even larger than “Barack Obama” that “Climategate” has to conquer? Yes, but I wouldn’t bet any money on it:


Meantime, Watts Up With That has found something fishy about a related matter with Climategate search.

The MSM can’t ignore the growing scandal of Climategate forever, and CBS News manages to finally acknowledge skeptics without dissing them, and even links to the now famous Minnesotans For Global Warming’s “Hide The Decline” Video:

Even before the massive East Anglia document leak, the odds of an agreement being reached at Copenhagen appear to have been narrowing. Throw in a Fox News report about the U.N. and global governance and some black YouTube humor, and it looks like climate change skeptics have finally found their voice. And scientists and politicians endorsing dramatic limits on economic growth to limit carbon dioxide have been reminded where the burden of proof properly lies.

CONSENSUS WATCH – 12/01/2009

By Editor Climategate, Consensus Watch Comments Off on CONSENSUS WATCH – 12/01/2009

More biting satire straight from Planet Moron:

An ongoing series dedicated to vigorously monitoring emerging threats to The Consensus that global warming is real, caused by humans, and must be addressed at all costs.

Because without consensus, scientific conclusions would remain vulnerable to data that hasn’t been properly scrubbed of ideological impurities.

Clearly, The Consensus has come under some pressure recently with the unauthorized release of computer files from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, despite the fact that they consist of little more than a decade of accumulated data, communications, and models that implicate scientists and research institutions the world over in a potential conspiracy to fake data, suppress contrary evidence, and punish those who question human-caused global warming.

Like that’s somehow “newsworthy” all of a sudden.

Given this, Consensus supporters must be prepared with persuasive counterarguments to effectively parry the unfortunate questions the release of these files is bound to raise.

For example, let’s say someone comes up to you at work and says:

“Wow, did you hear the CRU threw away all the original data on historic temperature readings leaving no actual evidence of any kind to support the notion that humankind’s emissions of carbon dioxide has in any way resulted in the planet warming beyond natural norms?”

To which you can reply, drawing on your own extensive knowledge and experience in the area of climate research:

“The science is settled!”

See how easy that is? Just remember to say it authoritatively so the listener will know you’re telling the truth.

Let’s try another.  What if your brother-in-law comes over for dinner and casually mentions:

To find out what your brother-in-law hypothetically mentions you’ll have to visit Planet Moron.

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.
