Destroying the REAL inconvenient truth to protect the Algorean Big Lie
SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.
The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.
The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.
WHAT A LAME, INVALID, UNACCEPTABLE EXCUSE!
Deliberate fraud. Deliberate coverup. Deliberate deception!
It's a crime. A CRIME!!!
Alarmist "Heat" novelist George Monbiot (from whose name the term "moonbat" was derived!) "shocked, dismayed" at scandal (or so he claims)
Critically serious; cannot pretend irrelevant
(...) Their importance cannot be overestimated, What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
They're The Guys, after all, who've told us all those scary things and told us that we're destroying the planet. They're the guys the Hard Left, the Big Old Lying Leftist Media and our politicians have been believing for years and carrying on the Big-Lie-based fearmongering and helping Al Gore and other snake oil (emission trading credits, actually) hawkers line their pockets with millions of dollars.
Professor Philip Jones, the CRU's director, is in charge of the two key sets of data used by the IPCC to draw up its reports. Through its link to the Hadley Centre, part of the UK Met Office, which selects most of the IPCC's key scientific contributors, his global temperature record is the most important of the four sets of temperature data on which the IPCC and governments rely – not least for their predictions that the world will warm to catastrophic levels unless trillions of dollars are spent to avert it.HOLY FECKING SHEE-IT!!!
Dr Jones is also a key part of the closely knit group of American and British scientists responsible for promoting that picture of world temperatures conveyed by Michael Mann's "hockey stick" graph which 10 years ago turned climate history on its head by showing that, after 1,000 years of decline, global temperatures have recently shot up to their highest level in recorded history.
Given star billing by the IPCC, not least for the way it appeared to eliminate the long-accepted Mediaeval Warm Period when temperatures were higher they are today, the graph became the central icon of the entire man-made global warming movement.
WHY, THOSE LITTLE F......! C'MON, GUYS! AFTER THE SCUMBAGS!!!
SOMEBODY'S GONNA PAY AND IT AIN'T GONNA BE US!!!
