Default ClimateGate 2.0

Last week, 5,000 files of private email correspondence among several of the world's top climate scientists were anonymously leaked onto the Internet. Like the first "climategate" leak of 2009, the latest release shows top scientists in the field fudging data, conspiring to bully and silence opponents, and displaying far less certainty about the reliability of anthropogenic global warming theory in private than they ever admit in public.

The scientists include men like Michael Mann of Penn State University and Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia, both of whose reports inform what President Obama has called "the gold standard" of international climate science, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Michael Mann has confirmed the damaging emails are legitimate & not doctored.

The new release of emails was timed to coincide with the second anniversary of the original climategate leak and with the upcoming United Nations climate summit in Durban, South Africa.

Is this the final nail in the coffin of the "global warmers"?

What's interesting is that whoever is holding these emails held back this batch for two years. I wouldn't doubt that they have even more.

Appeals to authority will not work.

Claims of "expertise" will not work.

The defense of "peer review" as validation, will not work.

Now, all that is left is the defense of the actual science, to which the emails show that even those pushing the "conclusions" knew the science wasn't sound.

Here is the link directly to the email and data files

The idea that the world's entire scientific community is somehow engaged in a massive world-wide conspiracy to promote a fraudulent idea (man-made global-warming) is laughable and absurd.

'Climategate 1.0' turned out to be much ado about nothing, just a whole bunch of hogwash. So now the deniers are back at it again attempting to manufacture another phony scandal to discredit the world's scientific establishment. Truly amazing. Can't say I'm surprised. As usual they don't have any facts on their side so they resort to smear and propaganda.


-------------------------------
Among the scientists whose emails were disclosed, the CRU's researchers said in a statement that the emails had been taken out of context and merely reflected an honest exchange of ideas. Michael Mann, director of Pennsylvania State University's Earth System Science Center, said that sceptics were "taking these words totally out of context to make something trivial appear nefarious",[18] and called the entire incident a careful, "high-level, orchestrated smear campaign to distract the public about the nature of the climate change problem."[62]

What's funny about using Wikipedia is they were part of the propaganda machine:

Quote:
Wikipedia's climate doctor

All told, Connolley created or rewrote 5,428 unique Wikipedia articles. His control over Wikipedia was greater still, however, through the role he obtained at Wikipedia as a website administrator, which allowed him to act with virtual impunity. When Connolley didn't like the subject of a certain article, he removed it -- more than 500 articles of various descriptions disappeared at his hand. When he disapproved of the arguments that others were making, he often had them barred -- over 2,000 Wikipedia contributors who ran afoul of him found themselves blocked from making further contributions. Acolytes whose writing conformed to Connolley's global warming views, in contrast, were rewarded with Wikipedia's blessings. In these ways, Connolley turned Wikipedia into the missionary wing of the global warming movement.
Connolley had his privileges stripped and if I remember correctly banned from Wikipedia altogether.

You think Fox News is a better source? Thanks for the laugh.

So now Wikipedia is in on this great massive global conspiracy as well?

Oh boy. This gets better by the minute. Better than reading a Tom Clancy novel.
