New smoking gun on climate data fraud!

Posted by sanityinjection on December 18, 2009

There has been much debate over the significance of the leaked emails in what is now being called “Climategate”. How you perceive those emails seems to correlate with what you already thought about global warming. If you’re a believer, you probably think the emails have been taken out of context or misunderstood; if you’re a skeptic like me, you probably think they are proof of a conspiracy to mislead the world.

Now, however, new evidence has come to light. The Moscow Institute of Economic Analysis is reporting that climate researchers at the Hadley Climate Research Unit in the UK deliberately cherry-picked incomplete climate data from Russian monitoring stations that would support the anthropogenic global warming theory, and ignored data from over 40% of the country that contradicted the theory. This is signifcant because Russia occupies some 12.5% of the world’s landmass and therefore its data would have a very large effect in calculating world climate change.

Of course, anything called the “Institute of Economic Analysis” is likely to have an anti-warming bias to begin with. But the claims being made here are very specific and should be able to be confirmed. They are further supported by one of the leaked Climategate emails which implies that Phil Jones deliberately tried to suppress the publication of two papers  echoing the IEA’s allegations.

As I pointed out yesterday, there are plenty of good reasons to move away from fossil fuels that have nothing to do with global warming. But this is a new piece of evidence to support the charge that the world is being deliberately and falsely railroaded into taking action to solve a problem that does not exist, for ulterior motivations that have nothing to do with climate science at all.

    Michael Mann, Phil Jones, and the rest of the scientists/criminals should be forced to repay all the taxpayer funded grant money given to them. They should NEVER be allowed near a child’s chemistry set. They need to be doing a perp walk. Better yet, feed them to hungry polar bears.
