The Inconvenient Leak
Maybe we can stop Goldman Sachs' carbon trading scheme before it's too late.
The ClimateGate scandal continues to spiral out of control. BBC climate reporter Paul Hudson has confirmed that he received the hacked CRU emails six weeks ago after publishing a story titled Whatever Happened to Global Warming. In the article, Hudson asked why global temperatures have not been rising for the last 11 years, as IPCC models predicted.
Searchable Email Database
(For fun, search the database for "Andrew Revkin" or "Andy Revkin" or "Andy." He runs a blog called dotearth at the NYT. It appears that Andy was Michael Mann's useful idiot, although sometimes not as "predictable" as the rest of the "prestige press."
It's also becoming more likely that these emails were stolen by someone working inside CRU and not the work of "right wing deniers." Oh, this is JUICY!
Paul Hudson's revelation is especially delightful for me! I linked to the original BBC story here in comment #18. The response :
What a load of bunk. The latest decade includes all of the warmest years in a century and a half. If you know a bit about statistics you'll realize that the odds of having such continuity of warm years nearly rules out random chance. " - lucas1985
Ah, but now we discover that the real bunk are all the pretty graphs and charts that lucas1985 and the other anthropogenic global warming fraud denialists have put forth.
"The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate." - Kenneth Trenberth
We know that:
1. Temperature data has been manipulated, destroyed, and deleted.
Michael Mann's original Hockey Stick graph contained mistakes which he admits in the private emails. (In a recent paper, he recreated the same mistake, which passed peer review - see point #3 - but was caught by McIntyre in about 15 minutes. See more at Climate Audit.)
That the data collected at CRU was did not conform to the hopes of CRU scientists. Phil Jones is now famous for the words "hide the decline."
2. That CRU scientists, particularly Jones and Mann refused to release their research data to repeated Freedom of Information requests, in spite of the fact that Jones and Mann's crew was utitlizing taxpayer funds(!!!!) to perform their research.
3. Phil Jones and others rigged the peer review process over the years, removing skeptics and dissenters. Peer review for AGW reserach is a rubber stamped formality, nothing more.

It's surprisingly quiet in the Socialist News Rooms. You can't ignore it away, my little Bebel-ites. What is so important at Copenhagen that they are trying to bury this story? Hmmmm.....
To be continued. We haven't even scratched the surface.........
