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).

Link.

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!

    (As humour may be a good way to get the message of Climategate through, people are free to use the posting below as they wish… –AE)

    CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOTHING COMPARED TO LIGHT-BULB CHANGE

    The first few jokes in this file are by ahrvid@hotmail.com. Feel free to add your own and share the fun with others!

    Question: How many Climategate deniers does it take to change a light bulb? (Q repeated for every answer)

    What light bulb? The EU has banned them for environmental reasons.

    None. Media prefers to stumble around in the dark.

    Thirty. Because when you’ve done you need a whole platoon to dig trenches and put up barbed wire to defend your position to the very last man.

    2501. That’s the number in the Intergovernmental Panel of Light-bulb Change. 2451 of them are only formally members and couldn’t care less, though everyone flies their jet planes to expensive international conferences to get pisssed and allow their names to be used in several thousand pages thick reports, sure to lay substantial areas of forests barren. There are about 50 that sit and cherry-pick the light bulbs that are suited for “the cause”. Of these only about a dozen check that the correct light bulb – and only the correct light bulb – is selected. Finally Al Gore climbs to the very top of the ladder and make sure that everything becomes totally screwed up.

    What a bloody bickering about light bulbs! We will not change light bulbs. The light-bulb science is settled once and for all. You’re only a gang of conspiracy theorists that deny the Holocaust, think the US Government blew up the Twin Towers and see Flying Saucers in the sky.

    None. because you can use the trick of hiding the decline in luminosity.

    What’s a ”light bulb”? We only have camp fires, where we come from, and are almost freezing to death. Oh, how we long for Medieval times! It’s supposed to have been a Warm Period then.

    It will be impossible to change any light bulbs. You see, even if we here on the BBC are about 23 000 employees, every single one of us is fully occupied with making new programmes where we repeat the same old message about “climate change”, day out and day in. That’s public service TV for you!

    Changing a light bulb, you said? I’m from the government and I’m here to help you. Of course you have to pay the light-bulb tax, the electricity tax and of course the CO2 tax, not to forget the climate-change fee, the environment duty and the fossil-fuel charge. What? Well, mortgage your house, for heaven’s sake! Think of the poor panda bears, please. First we must make sure that the light bulb complies with regulation 4.71, paragraph B) in sub section…

    Subject: Annoying idiot wants scientific openness
    Howdy amigo!
    I got this outrageous E-mail by some idiot that wants to check our light-bulb figures. If I see him I promise you I’ll beat the crap out of him. Suggest that you immediately delete everything. Chris will do the same. We can’t have others coming and checking our light bulbs. Scientific scrutiny and freedom of information in my ass! I propose that we gang up and oust this annoying man from everything. BTW, I attached the latest version of our program code, with should fix the travesty about that the increase simply hasn’t happened.

    Ps. Send the money in chunks below 10 000 dollars, so authorities won’t find them, though I know that’s a heck of a job for the 100 billion of tax-payer’s money we have gotten so far.


Well, SAY something...
