Climategate: CRU= TGP

I swear, reading Climategate stories is as much fun as surfing TGP sites.


“I’ve been poring over one of many leaked computer files from the “climategate” scandal.

It’s worse than those e-mails revealing leading climate scientists did a “trick” to “hide the decline” in global temperatures and privately called it a “travesty” they couldn’t explain recent cooling.

This document has the innocuous header “HARRY_READ_Me.txt.”…

The file — 274 pages long — describes the efforts of a climatologist/programmer at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia to update a huge statistical database (11,000 files) of important climate data between 2006 and 2009.

The computer coding, along with the programmer’s apparently unsuccessful efforts to complete the project, involve data that are the foundation of the study of climate change — recordings from hundreds of weather stations around the world of temperature and precipitation measurements from 1901 to 2006, sun/cloud computer simulations, and the like…

Reading “HARRY_READ_ME.txt” it’s clear the CRU’s files were a mess. The programmer laments huge gaps in data, bug-filled programs and worries about all the guesswork he’s doing. His comments suggest the problems go back years…

As you read the programmer’s comments below, remember, this is only a fraction of what he says.

– “But what are all those monthly files? DON’T KNOW, UNDOCUMENTED. Wherever I look, there are data files, no info about what they are other than their names. And that’s useless …” (Page 17)

– “It’s botch after botch after botch.” (18)

– “The biggest immediate problem was the loss of an hour’s edits to the program, when the network died … no explanation from anyone, I hope it’s not a return to last year’s troubles … This surely is the worst project I’ve ever attempted. Eeeek.” (31)

– “Oh, GOD, if I could start this project again and actually argue the case for junking the inherited program suite.” (37)

– “… this should all have been rewritten from scratch a year ago!” (45)

– “Am I the first person to attempt to get the CRU databases in working order?!!” (47)

– “As far as I can see, this renders the (weather) station counts totally meaningless.” (57)

– “COBAR AIRPORT AWS (data from an Australian weather station) cannot start in 1962, it didn’t open until 1993!” (71)

– “What the hell is supposed to happen here? Oh yeah — there is no ‘supposed,’ I can make it up. So I have : – )” (98)”

Read it all.

Okay, TGP:

See what I mean? reading about the China Syndrome meltdown of Piltdown Man climate “science” is almost as awesome as looking at a beautiful young girl.

Here’s some more CRU:

Tigerhawk says:

“Some of this is a bit over done; not every suspicious turn of phrase in a conversational email hides a conspiracy, and anybody who has worked in a large organization knows that. It is also true that people in all organizations vent about outsiders who threaten to knock down the door as Steve McIntyre, to his credit, does all the time. The emails alone prove nothing.”

I disagree with this. These inclement climate pseudoscientists are fucking, goddamned pieces of shit. I don’t think one can “over do” shedding light on these slimy nightcrawlers. Personally, I think they should be cut up into little bitty bits and used as chum. After all, they are basically trying to rob the world economy of billions of dollars, and deny all peoples their God-given natural rights. No form of execution could be too gruesome for them. After all, this is cultural treason.

More TGP:

And yet more CRU:

“In a nutshell, Climategate is a destroyer of world-views. As someone who has always maintained that the AGW hype was a matter of politicians and grifters seizing an opportunity to use unsettled science as a means of getting filthy rich while imposing harsh measures against human freedom, I am very familiar with the world-view of the alarmists. Whenever I wrote about the “hoo-hah” of AGW (and particularly of Al Gore’s stupendous, international fake-out and hypocrisy), my email would load up with people telling me I was “a stupid hick,” unschooled in scientific method (just like Al Gore) and therefore unentitled to opine on anything, so I should just “shut up” and “go away” and of course, I was a “nazi.” These emails occasionally ended with a diatribe against George W. Bush for good measure, and suggested he and I were both “criminals” against humanity. One person even accused me of being Barbara Bush, in disguise.

All of that was standard-issue hate, but nowhere as amusing as the occasional “Sinner, fry in hell” emails I will get from a Jack Chicker, so I stopped reading them long ago.

But I also had a journalist I admired, and who I still consider a friend, privately and gently suggest that if I doubted the truth about AGW then I was as deluded (and perhaps as evil) as a “holocaust denier.””

Read it all, because there are many awesome links. Just like a soft porn TGP site, you could get lost for hours in the “friends” links.

Still more TGP:

Like I said, it’s a tossup: Surf TGP or surf CRU?

“There is a lot to read about Climategate, but none of it is in the Mainstream Media, with the exception of the Obama-Administration described “not real news” organization. That would be Fox News, which is covering the story.

The New York Times, in a stunning bit of hypocrisy, says they won’t report on Climategate because they didn’t like the way the information was discovered. To the NY TImes, the real story, if they ever deign to cover it, will be about the method in which the story was found, and the ends not justifying means.

There is a valid nit to pick over hacking and how it threatens not just programs but governments and individuals. But when an entire global movement, with accompanying financial interests and public bullying has been founded on “science” that is -at the very least- now confirmed to be “unsettled,” that information, regardless of how it was brought to light, needs to be reported on and investigated.

The NY Times’ prim distaste for the means of disclosure on this issue rather reminds me of a few years back, when someone leaded a memo from the Senate Intelligence Committee, whereby Sen. Jay Rockefeller suggested strategies to undermine “Bush’s war,” and the mainstream media ignored the content of the memo, while waxing indignant over the leak.

The standard media, it seems, only like leaks when they serve their own agendas, or take down their perceived enemies, foreign and domestic.

So, they don’t like this Climategate Story, not at all. Troubling links and trouble, trouble for the narrative.

Let me tell you why the press is blacking out the Climategate story:”

Which goes into Driscol’s quotation, but there’s a lot more CRU pr0n links you shouldn’t miss!

One more borderline NSFW TGP image – seasonally appropriate! – after the break:

Does this TGP make my holidays happier, or does the CRU scandal? I simply can’t decide.

    My what lovely pumpkins around that last lass and i see she has employed ‘Jims Mowing’ (that’s an aussie joke).

    Now – “used as chum” I have a Quintrex Coastrunner 4.25 (A boat) so if you have the time i’ve got the transport – PLUS……………it’s Snapper season in Victoria (Oz) at the moment so any burly is good.

    The BBC and Climategate: was a reporter put under pressure to ignore the story?

    Are they any other gov. run media outlets that’s done the same? Ignore it.

    • bingbing Says:

      Don’t the Idjets realise this will SELL papers, boost ratings? Journo 101.

      This would indicate many of them – looking at YOU, Graham Readfearn – are not true journalists. Covering this up ain’t in the spirit of true journalism, rather the antithesis.

    I am female and straight, yet I must say those girls do look very fresh and nice, in a nice sort of way. My only objection to the last girl is that she should have covered her legs with leaves because the picture is not very flattering. 🙂

    Now to be serious, you did a great job with your summary. Well done with the comments, and just remember you are not alone.

    I live in an area of Australia where there is normally a lot of hot air, but of course this hot air does not contribute to man-made global warming because in winter it is the only place where I have lived and actually seen snow :). Can you guess where? ROFL…. Is that a cloud of smugness that I see? ROFL

  4. Carpe Jugulum Says:

    Obo the clown gives an alternative point of view;

    FOR THE LOVE OF GOD…….do not go there if the blue language makes your panties shrink

  5. aussie Says:

    To answer the question about govt run media outlets, look no further than Australia’s ABC. They have not ignored the issue, but they are not exactly reporting on it either….

  6. onepointsixoneeight Says:

    G’day Aussie and friendly welcome. ABC does ignore the issue. BBC etc Let us know.

    Guys, if you post the girls I’m going to post a few hunks of spunks.

  7. onepointsixoneeight Says:

    Aussie, feel free to post relevant information that you think is important to you or inturn, post to bolty or blair at DT and SH. 🙂

  8. onepointsixoneeight Says:

    Instead of Global Warming I’m convinced it’s ?????? that causes natural disasters.

  9. onepointsixoneeight Says:

    A government minister has blamed Indonesia’s recent string of natural disasters on people’s immorality.

    Communication and Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring said that there were many television programmes that destroyed morals.

    Therefore, the minister said, natural disasters would continue to occur.

  10. bingbing Says:

    Like I said, it’s a tossup: Surf TGP or surf CRU?

    A tossup? Was that pun intended? Search the CRU, mate, for the time being. Sorry, busy tonight. New Top Gear and Dexter episodes. Plus, I’ve done my part attracting a few Bolt commenters, who with any luck, will link this back to Andrew.

  11. bingbing Says:

    O/T But another Tizona editor/admin/author is gonna have to do the Bolt morning fodder. Stayed up too late.

    It a movie called Gamer…awesome.

    But anyway…
