ClimateGate… Booyah!


Just in case you’ve been living under a rock the last day or so…

Hacked alleged emails between some of our “top” climate scientists have revealed collusion, manipulation of data, suppression of data, deletion of data, team efforts to sideline skeptics ie. anyone who’s research didn’t fit the man-made global warming narrative…

Bolt’s booyah here, here, here, and here.

Blair’s booyah here.

Jules’ booyah here (lotsa good links on that one).

An excellent round up here.

Where it all began here.

HotAir’s take here.

A few tidbits have even made it to the MSM. Interesting since this is potentially the biggest news story since 9/11. At least James Delingpole’s excited.

Check it out for yourself here, or search the emails for keywords here – with thanks to anelegantchaos.

Gavin at RealClimate is having a hell of a time defending it all.

Naturally, Anthony Watts was on to it early.

I won’t link to ClimateAudit. Steve’s site is taking a beating.

In fact, it’s all over the blogosphere. With something potentially, if proved right, so serious, that will affect billions of people and dictate where trillions of dollars go, and yet where there are whiffs of conspiracy, collusion, manipulation, suppression and deletion of key data, why on Earth isn’t this all over the news channels?!

UPDATE

It’s even on Yahoo Answers. The longer the MSM stays essentially silent on this, the more they mute their relevance.

UPDATE II

Slowly, slowly, they might just be coming round. This is just too big to suppress.

Link (puff).

H/T Bolt who notes, “I suspect this is a story that newspapers should not entrust to their environment reports.

UPDATE III [Beef]

Keep and eye on Power Line also, as John has latched his analytical legal mind onto this subject, and when he decides to get to the bottom of something, the bottom better be afraid… very afraid.

“The biggest news story of the day is one that has barely begun to break and will continue to reverberate for months or years to come. Someone hacked into a computer at the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climatic Research Centre, one of the main centers of anthropogenic global warming research. The hacker downloaded 62 megabytes of data from the server, consisting of around 1,000 emails and a variety of other documents. He uploaded them to an FTP server, where they were available to the public, apparently, for only a few hours. The event is described here.

Before the documents disappeared from that location, several people had downloaded them and posted them in other locations. I downloaded all of the material earlier today and have begun to review it. The emails are stunning. They are authored by many of the leading figures in the global warming movement: Michael Mann, James Hansen, Phil Jones, Keith Briffa, Stephen Schneider, and others. They are remarkably candid; these individuals talk to each other with the knowledge that they are among friends.

The emails I’ve reviewed so far do not suggest that these scientists are perpetrating a knowing and deliberate hoax. On the contrary, they are true believers. I don’t doubt that they are sincerely convinced–in fact, fanatically so–that human activity is warming the earth. But the emails are disturbing nonetheless. What they reveal, more than anything, is a bunker mentality. These pro-global warming scientists see themselves as under siege, and they view AGW skeptics as bitter enemies.”

Read the whole enchilada. Warministas are fundamentalist dead-enders, just like Jihadists.

 

UPDATE IV

BOOYAH! Bolt goes in for the kill. Talk about a boys’ club!

Spoilt Brats at UCLA Protest Results of Policies They Voted For


California is the US’ first “failed state” in the financial crisis, and the University of California system has had to absorb real, actual budget cuts. As a result, they are having to raise student tuitions more than 30%. Of course, these students, none of whom seem to have ever taken an economics course, are not happy about it. That lead to a near riot at UCLA t’other day.

The protests have now spread to other campuses in the system.

“Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Students were occupying buildings Friday on campuses of the University of California system in protest of a 32 percent tuition hike.

Students took over portions of buildings on campuses in Los Angeles, Berkeley, Santa Cruz and Davis late Thursday, and two remain occupied Friday morning.

Student organizers said they would escalate their protests after the system’s regents approved the tuition hike during a meeting Thursday on the UCLA campus.

University officials said the $505 million to be raised by the tuition increases is needed to prevent even deeper cuts than those already made because of California’s persistent financial crisis.

Protesting students said the hike will hurt working and middle-class students who benefit from state-funded education.”

Yes, when there is a budget shortfall – because of policies the voters voted for and their representatives enacted into law – the school administrators have no right to raise prices to keep the schools afloat. Anyway, these retard protestors are being arrested right and left now.

“Authorities arrested dozens of angry students at the Davis campus late Thursday after they refused to vacate the school’s administration building.

The Davis Police Department and deputies from the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department took 52 students into custody, according to UC Davis spokeswoman Claudia Morain [Which, if you are a PC-phile and use the French pronunciation, comes deliciously close to, “Moron.” – Beef}.

The arrests at Mrak Hall administration came about four hours after the usual 5 p.m. PT closing time. At one point, as many as 150 students were at the building protesting the tuition increase, Morain said.”

For a shocking visual of the US financial meltdown in terms of lost jobs, you really need to watch this awesome animation. It looks like the spread of The Andromeda Strain. Pity I can’t embed it, but it rocks.

Also, note that this job loss Andromeda Strain fell to earth when the Democrats took over total control of the Congress and Senate, and accelerated when they took absolute control of the government with the Obama administration.

So, you retarded brats, you have only yourselves to blame for the current financial fiasco in Cali.
