Climategate - Who's Who

the fraudsters unveiled

Taken from Watts Up With That

Nation shall speak, sometimes

Selective broadcasting

Real warming, Booker's bookReal warming, Booker's book
When it comes to Climategate we all knew the MSM would attempt, via denial, to shove this into the corner. It's both an education and a bit of fun to see who is carrying this story and who is not. But it's the BBC that has gone all weird.

According to Richard North on EU Referendum, it is long-term global warming reporter, Christopher Booker who has pushed them over the edge, North says -

“Interestingly, Booker had a BBC radio broadcast (about his book) cancelled because of the controversy. It's not that they don't know – its head-in-the-sand time”.

Under the weather?

Down under.

Climategate continues to roll. Australia’s parliament just imploded over discord due to the emissions trading scheme being pushed by opposition leader Malcolm Turnbull. Five Liberal frontbenchers have resigned (plus seven MPs) because they actually want to discuss the scheme rather than just allow the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to dash off to Copenhagen and grandstand as a friend of the chairman. Rudd’s Labor party needs support from seven non-government senators to win passage through the 76-seat upper house.

Meanwhile, the BBC site blissfully burbles on about Copenhagen and CO2 reduction pledges, the Telegraph heaps praise on the Tories for the proposal to offer to give us goody vouchers if we reach our personal recycling targets!

Phlogiston redux?

or the new alchemists?

People seem to be missing the real issue in the CRU emails.... To me, the main issue is the frontal attack on the heart of science, which is transparency.

Science works by one person making a claim, and backing it up with the data and methods that they used to make the claim. Other scientists attack the work by (among other things) trying to replicate the first scientist’s work. If they can’t replicate it, it doesn’t stand. So blocking the FOIA allowed Phil Jones to claim that his temperature record (HadCRUT3) was valid science.

This is not just trivial gamesmanship, this is central to the very idea of scientific inquiry. This is an attack on the heart of science, by keeping people who disagree with you from ever checking your work and seeing if your math is correct. Willis Eschenbach
