  • ClimateGate Heats Up Global Warming Debate before Copenhagen

    1,000 emails and more than 3,000 other documents from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in the United Kingdom publicly revealed by a hacker, or allegedly an inside whistleblower, are rekindling the flame to the global warming debate just weeks before the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference where the United States will propose an emissions reduction target. A sample of what the emails exposed, which date back 13 years, includes:

    “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.”

    And:

    “I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e., from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”

    And:

    “I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report,” Jones writes. “Kevin and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!”

    Some have argued the quotes have been taken out of context while others say the context is clear as day. Other information was erased completely to prevent it from being obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. And others believe “that this is not a scandal so much as a window on real scientists working on a politicized issue.”

    Regardless, it’s not the first scandalous story on global warming and it certainly won’t be the last. John Stossel, on his show 20/20 two years ago, talks to former scientists from the IPCC, the group that said it was a scientific consensus that manmade global warming was a serious threat and must be reversed. One scientist resigned because he disagreed with the study but his name was left on the report; it was only after he threatened to sue that his name was taken off the report. (Check out after the 4:00 mark of the video below).

    More recently, it was the Environmental Protection Agency’s suppression of three of its employees. First, the EPA suppressed an internal report from one of the agency’s own, 35-year analyst Alan Carlin – a scientist who specializes in climate change. His report warned that the science of climate change was dubious and that we shouldn’t pass laws that will raise energy prices, hurt American families and hobble the nation’s economy without a full understanding of climate change. Later, the EPA suppressed a video entitled, “The Huge Mistake” by Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel, two lawyers currently working at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – a video that says cap and trade will not work.

    It will be interesting to see how ClimateGate plays out, but Superfreakonomics author Stephen Dubner sums up the current state of things: “If you are a fan of science, this is a pretty grim day. If you are a fierce partisan on either side of the global-warming issue, you are either gnashing your teeth or clicking your heels. If you are a government official heading to Copenhagen soon for the climate summit, you are probably wondering what the hell you’re supposed to think now.”

      wow – I wish the MSM was this upset when Sarah palins email got hacked !!!

    3. Bill Lee, ArkLaTex a says:

      We need to hold our Leaders and others who push this false concept responsibile.

      When the truth comes out we need to punish the leaders of this movement who should have known better.

      If we find out that this false concept was knowingly pushed by people who knew better they need to be sued for damages they caused.

      It needs to be explained being honest is more important than siding with one side or another.

    4. John S. Niles, Seatt says:

      That first quote provided above from the exposed emails is by Kevin Trenbeth, a scientist at National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado.

      What he means is pretty much explained by his recent paper in the journal Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, "An imperative for adapting to climate change: Tracking Earth’s global energy." It's full text at http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cas/Trenberth/trenberth.p… .

      The opening and closing sections of the paper as well as some of the graphics should be interesting and educational to many non-scientist but science-interested readers.

    5. Freedom of Speech, T says:

      Another smoke screen that has fooled well-meaning advocates and enriched a few global elites including an American "volunteer".

    6. Mary Oele says:

      Those responsible for encouraging the support of falsehoods concerning global warming need to be held accountable. Al Gore, especially must be held accountable because his theories are not based on fact and he perpetuates them with fierceness and does not allow anyone to debate the issue with him. That fact alone is a red flag.

    7. mkurbo says:

      To Mr. Connolley (of WikiPedia Global Warming Bias fame) because Wiki won’t allow any posting of real info on the AGW site.

      For years Mr. William M. Connolley (talk) and group of biased editors have cried for peer reviewed papers from skeptics to support claims that Global Warming is nothing more than a hoax. It is clear now after the CRU info has been released that the peer reviewed process was controlled as a self perpetuating barrier to such truth being revealed in skeptical papers.

      Mr. Connolley, you will stand trial now for fraud and criminal negligence in maintaining such disinformation for manipulation of billions of dollars worldwide.

      For every innocent child who has viewed your information on Wiki (which was manipulated on purpose for expressed intent) you should be sentenced to one (1) year in prison. It will be hard to serve out millions of years for those crimes…

WE expect our children to be taught the FACTS without personal influence in a taxpayer paid government run school! How many years have our children's minds been filled with this ignorance? When they could be higher on the intelligence list of the world, America's government fears the children. Exploiting, coercing deceiving… Big GOVERNMENT has to pick on the little kids, before the little kids and their parents find out…how despicable. How indignant.

      Why are the levels of intelligence so low in America? Because the world teaches their youth FACTS OF NECESSARY PURPOSE! WHAT THE TAX PAYERS OF THIS COUNTRY EXPECT FOR THE CHILDREN OF THIS COUNTRY! But we're FAILED BY GOVERNMENT IN EDUCATION ALSO! THE GOVERNMENT REACHES THE VULNERABLE. EXPLOITING CHILDREN! COERCING a BELIEF OF A NON-EXISTENCE. WHERE VALUABLE TIME WAS EXPECTED TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN KNOWLEDGE.

      "REALITY DENIERS" ARE DESTROYING THE MINDS OF OUR CHILDREN, THE YOUTH OF AMERICA!

      THE DEBATE IS NOT OVER UNTIL THE TRUTH IS KNOWN. THE ILLUSION OF MAN-MADE GLOBAL WARMING!

      Can you instantly tell the debate is over? How quick to make judgements!! There is a lot of evidence to be considered. Maybe some of you want a quick way OUT of the debate, to get back to the old ways of being wasteful. Even if there was evidence that global warming was NOT the fault of the human race, does that mean we shouldn't be careful with the world's resources and recycle and do all the things that are ultimately RIGHT. I come from a time when the human race was much less wasteful. Now we almost buy a new torch rather than a battery for the old one (now you can get me into talking about rechargable batteries and even wind up torches!). Come on, guys, we need to keep thinking green WHATEVER the outcome of the debates.

    15. Alison Robinson, Mtn says:

      John S. Niles – what are you doing in Seattle with an opinion like that?

    16. Joe, Beaufort SC says:

      The only question I have had since this entire debate began was: "What is the correct temperature of the Earth, and why?"

      If it is too warm – then why? What should we cool it down to? When I run my AC in the summer I do not run it 24/7 until it gets as cold as it can get, and likewise in the winter when I heat the house, I do not run it to 90 or 95 either, I have a goal.

      So, whats the goal? If it is too warm by 0.1C today, is the goal 0.0C change – from what year? What era?

      Until these fools can answer that question, there is no point to doing anything. . .

    17. Richard Lofgren, Hun says:

      This is not a sad day for science, but a revelation of the attempt to use pseudoscience in order to promote a political agenda, specifically that of controling public policy for financial gain. The scientists and politicians who have promoted global warming, now called climate change, should be held accountable for their fraud by loss of employment, i.e., fire the bums!

    18. Bill Hylton, Little says:

      Lying is not something that is new to the environment radicals. They lied about the spotted owls in Washington State, saying they could only survive in old growth forests. On their say so, a federal court put thousands of loggers out of work. Then it was discovered that the owls were living in many places outside old growth forests, including K-mart signs. Confronted, the admitting lying but showed no remorse. It was for a good cause, you see.

      These lies should be hammered until the enviro-radicals are totally discredited.

    19. Ben C, Ann Arbor says:

      John S Niles: when reviewing the footnotes for the article you posted I find their aren't any opposing views. With the lack of opposing views I find a diminshed credibility of the author. While he certainly is entitled to his opinions anyone can bend statistics to fit their model. Perhaps both sides can debate the issue to define what is known and what is speculation. My view is that we are along ways from understanding cause and effect. Reminds me of the old "western movies" when the guy shows up with his rainmaking machine during a drought. Somehow "mother nature" is not impressed with man made efforts to control her.

    20. Lloyd Scallan - New says:

      This entire "mad made global warming" issue, as well as the overwelming majorty of every "environmental" farce that is being forced on us by the political correct socialist, is nothing more than a lie. People like Al Gore have made millions and millions of dollars on this lie

      and stand the chance to loose it all if the true

      facts are every brought to light. For those who really want to know the truth, just go back to the records that clearly show man has no effect on

      global temps. Like all of the other socialist

      plans in progress, this issue is designed for

      one purpose only, the power to change and control

      our lives the a tyrannical federal government.

    23. Jerry from Chicago says:

      Is it possible to have a televised debate on this issue of global warming? I would like to hear what scientists on both sides of this issue have to say, then make up my own mind.

      There have been major climate changes over the past such as the ice age (global cooling) followed by the retreat of the glaciers(global warming). The planet seems to have survived both.

      No one can seriously be in favor of air or water pollution. We all need to have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. That said, I do not believe that human activities are creating global warming. Finding out that those pushing a global warming agenda were so determined to prove it that they deliberately concealed information to the contrary only reinforces my disbelief.

      Cap & Trade will do absolutely nothing to stop carbon emissions. It will allow those responsible for such emissions to continue to do so, subject of cource to the purchase of "carbon credits". The cost of such "credits" will be built into the price we all will pay for the goods and services produced by the polluters. The message here is that it's ok to continue polluting as long as you pay-off. I believe absolutely this is yet another government scam to take more control and open up a whole new area to tax.

    24. Raymond Mercier, Blo says:

      The so-called "Global warming" is a hoax started and perpetuated by socialists who wish to gain control of the world. The fact is global temperature peaked in 1998 and has been declining since! The implication that it has been caused by man, and therefore under man's control, is a falsehood. The debate is NOT over.

    25. Mike Dodson, Midland says:

      This is a surprise? How naive of anyone to think so.

    26. Robbie Lovan says:

      I knew the global warming thing was a scam when my 15 yr old son and I did research on the planet weather cycles…We discovered that the info. input into the computers where hypothesis rather than theory due to several factors that scientists have no answers to such as the inability to measure the constantly changing radiant heat comming from the sun and the total global rainfall in one year period of time. These two factors effect climate changes…When you enter junk into a computer, you get junk for results!

    27. Ross writes from Flo says:

      Hey you "koolade drinking"environmental scientist; IT'S THE SUN STUPID! Not to mention the molten core of the earth, the soot and dust from erupting volcanoes, change of the ocean currents, and the jet stream. Man does not have the ability nor the technology to control the environment especially so call "global warming".

      When scientist start coming up with ways to stop earthquakes, volcano eruption, hurricanes, even tornadoes, I might listen…not a second before.

      Now the whole world can see the environmental science lies, legislations, and treaties are design to control and enslave mankind, not "save the earth".

      Al Gore Jr. IS the top "global waring" liar and environmental scam artist. Of course he is the product of his environment…"the apple never falls very far from the tree"…former Tennessee (ultra-liberal)Senator Albert Gore Sr. now deceased. What a timely scandal for a non-issue!

    28. Jeanne Stotler, wood says:

      Let's face it. if they can scare enough people into believing their lies, it makes them rich. Al Gore has made millions off the back of fear, and they continue to lie. First they now say that they were projecting 20yrs into the future about the demise of Polar Bears, they keep talking about the ice melting on Greenland, Well how do you think it got it's name. Greenland belongs to Denmark and the Danes went there many years ago to farm as their land was being misused and not producing crops. When I went to school we were taught that the climate changed as the earth moved and there have been many warm winters as well as some like the blizzard in '66 that i'd like to forget, also the yr. Kennedy was inaugerated they had to clear the sts. with blow torches we didn't see our street from Dec.10th until Mar. it snowed every week, '97 was also a snowy year, in between there were snowless winters,'64 it was over 70 degrees Christmas day, I had to dig out the spring coats the next year we had ice, as we went to Fla. I remember the ice falling off out roof rack after we got into Ga., it was cold even in So. Car. Global Warming is just what it sounds like BUNK, of course the young people don't learn about this in school, no do they learn Amer. History.

As with all these cycles, man has had very little if anything to do with it. The Governments however have managed to use the truth, turn it into a fallicy, and stolen our cheap and plentifull energy, our jobs, our ways of living, and made themselves the destiny of us all.

The "government" would oversee the transfer of wealth from industrialized nations to third-world countries, and enforce that transfer. Seems to me that the argument against the treaty focuses too much on cost and too little on the world-wide political consequences.

    42. John Besharian / Bry says:

      In light of the e-fiasco just exposed, I ask you all to consider the following: The physicist Wolfgang Pauli was known for his often less than polite criticism of the work of some of his colleagues. He would sometimes exclaim "wrong" (falsch) or "completely wrong" (ganz falsch) when he disagreed with someone. Near the end of his life when asked his opinion of an article by a young physicist, he sadly said "it is not even wrong" (Das ist nicht einmal falsch). The phrase "not even wrong" is a popular one among physicists, and carries two different connotations, both of which Pauli likely had in mind. A theory can be "not even wrong" because it is so incomplete and ill-defined that it can't be used to make firm predictions whose failure would show it to be wrong. This has also become the situation of "Man Made Global Warming/Climate-Change" theory from its beginnings to the present day. This sort of "not even wrong" is not necessarily a bad thing. Most new theoretical ideas begin in this state, and it can take quite a bit of work before their implications are well enough understood for researchers to be able to tell whether the idea is right or wrong. But there is a second connotation of "not even wrong": "Something worse than a wrong idea", and in this form the phrase often gets used as a generic term of abuse. In the case of anthropogenic climate change theory, the way some scientists are abandoning fundamental scientific principals rather that admit a theory is not supported by facts is something of this kind: worse than being wrong is to refuse to admit it when one is wrong. If you "follow the (research) money", it leads to the political – which equates with power, raw power. By the way: "Cap'n Trade" is only a smiley face mask put on by "Cap'n Tax". (Think Jack Sparrow and Black Beard, respectively.) You also might wish to read "Unstoppable Global Warming (Every 1500 Years)" 2nd edition.

    50. Dan R. says:

      These e-mails from East Anglia just serve to illustrate how hopelessly politicized the scientific process has become with regard to this particular issue. It’s obviously gotten to the point now where certain people and institutions, including the media, are so totally invested in the idea of anthropogenic global warming (AWG) that they are actually willing to falsify data, restrict open debate, and ostracize those who don’t buy into their agenda. This has now crossed the boundry from science over into ideology. It reminds me of the Catholic Church's frenzied attempts to discredit and persecute people like Galileo in the 1600's because they wouldn't blindly accept the church's dogma which held that the sun revolves around the Earth.

      There are thousands of perfectly reputable scientists out there who either don’t believe in AWG or have serious doubts about it. They want the public to be asking questions like …

      * Why have temperatures flattened out and now started to fall even though CO2 levels in the atmosphere continue to rise?

      * How can an increase in a trace gas (CO2) equal to just 80 parts per million (which is only 8/1000ths of 1 percent of the Earth’s atmosphere), in and of itself, cause planetary temperatures to rise?

      * Why is it that the amount of antarctic ice has actually been increasing over the last 25 years rather than decreasing and why is it that the ice sheet between Greenland and Canada is now the thickest it’s been in 15 years?

      * How is it possible that atmospheric CO2 levels have been 10 to 15 times higher in the Earth’s distant past than they are today and yet planetary temperatures at those times were essentially the same as they are now? Moreover, if planetary temperatures are as sensitive to CO2 content as the IPCC’s climate models would have us believe, why were there healthy polar icecaps at that time when, accoriding to their climate models, there shouldn’t have been so much as an ice cube anywhere on the planet?

      We’d like to have an open debate about these and other issues before we start imposing ruinously expensive new carbon emissions standards that will cost untold billions and will, in all probability, have absolutely zero effect on the planet’s climate.

      Climate changes happen. They always have, and they always will. But they are caused by changes in the energy output of the sun, topographical changes on the Earth’s surface that alter weather patterns, and periodic perturbations in the Earth’s orbit around the sun as well as its angle of rotation. Compared against these factors, mankind’s burning of fossil fuels for a mere 200 years is laughably insignificant.

Pity that a former U.S. vice president, a narcissistic hypocrite is leading the lambs to slaughter in America.I can only hope that American citizens and the rest of the world wake up quickly and demand a halt to this apocalyptic political ruse.

      Copenhagen Aims to Snuff out Recovery

      It's never smart to fly a kite with an oncoming tornado at your back. The Copenhagen session on Global warming has decided to ignore the facts, public opinion, scientific opinion and common decency to rabidly push ahead on its politically motivated scam. When your own "believers" express significant doubt with scientific research backing them up and you ignore it (see no evil); when the institution that most central to your theory is proved to be overrun with corrupt practices (hear no evil); and the whole of Britain and 90% of the scientific community is up in arms about the misuses, abuses and total abandonment of common scientific protocols and you refuse to admit it (speak no evil); is there any wonder why your most celebrated spokesman (Al Gore) cancels his chance to make $1 Million more with a handshake dinner? The same people who banned DDT thus killing two million people yearly via malaria and other tropical diseases despite the fact that DDT can be safely drunk or used as salad dressing and has NEVER been proven to cause one bit of harm to any creature with four or fewer legs are pushing this evil agenda . . . .

      For a brief but more specific look at the matter:

      While readying speeches about how the middle class will be forced to lower their living standards, pay higher taxes on all forms of travel, and make personal sacrifices in order to save the planet from the alleged menace of CO2 Copenhagen globalists will be relaxing on the 140 extra private jets that are being forced to drop off attendees in Copenhagen and then fly back to other airports and even other countries just to park due to the lack of spaces.

      Elitists will scoff scallops foie gras and sculpted caviar wedges while lecturing the general public about how eating meat is harming the earth.

      And while the climate crooks wag their finger at you for having the audacity to own an SUV, they will be running up a bill of over $200 million dollars, and guess who is going to be picking up the tab?

      “According to an analysis by the Taxpayer’s Alliance a conservative cost of Copenhagen is £130million.

      It includes £6.3million on flights, £20million on hotels and £3.3million on food,reports the Daily Mail.

      “The figure also includes the salaries for delegates and the contribution from the Danish government of £37 million. Most of the money will come from taxpayers.” Summits of this size are routinely accompanied by a huge spike in the sex trade in whatever city they happen to be taking place. While servants of the global elite and their masters lecture us about our moral imperatives half of them are out committing adultery on a nightly basis during the same global conferences at which they habitually pose with righteous indignation. Make sure you have plenty of vomit bags on standby the thugs couldn’t care less about the environment they want to tax you out of existence for breathing! http://www.infowars.com/globalist-hypocrites-arri

      “The recent ‘ClimateGate’ revelations coming out of the UK University of East Anglia are but the tip of a giant iceberg of a well organized international climate warming conspiracy that has been gathering momentum for the last 25 years,” said Colorado State University’s Dr. William Gray.

      William M Connolley is in charge of manipulating the truth on climate at Wiki

      Re: My experiences when attempting to make changes on Wiki by Andrew Judd

      Wiki is preventing a true description of the 'greenhouse effect' being shown on Wiki.

      Wiki wants you to believe that the atmosphere heats the Surface. Anybody attempting to show that the surface heats the atmosphere will be banned.

      As required by Wiki my comments were supported by the references already on the page.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Andrewedwa….

      I went as far as to phone up the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory Senior Scientist, Yochanan Kushnir Ph.d, who wrote reference 9 and he confirmed that the surface heats the atmosphere, and the surface is warmer because the atmosphere slows down the heat loss from the surface and the colder atmosphere cannot heat the hotter surface. That was the main point that I wanted to get onto the Wiki page.

      Wiki administrator Dave Souza who may well be Connolley since Souza cannot possibly be the ten year retired local authority architect he claims to be with the energy of a fifteen year year old to prevent changes, said I had an odd unsupported opinion that the atmosphere heats the surface and was always intrumental in getting me sanctioned.

      After I was banned my wife informed the editors that Dr Kushnir fully supported what I had said and even after this editor Dave Souza kept up the obfuscation that Kushnirs telephone comments were not valid for Wiki. Souza referred to my wife as das Weib when he reported her. Obviously he knew the abusive content of that expression when used to describe another mans wife. My wife was banned.

      Connolley appears to be the chief abuser of anybody who attempts to make unapproved changes, but he has other names he can use to ensure no disputing editor can make changes.

      Connolley did a write up of his behaviour with me on his blog where he kept up the insulting behaviour in the comments continually saying i did not know what i was talking about.

      Fairly well known climate scientist James Annan called me a loon, and on his blog when i asked for an explanation he deleted the comment and said 'do go away silly troll'. He followed up with more comments on Connolleys blog that if he told me what he did on the internet he would have to kill me. Connolley thought this was all a big joke.
      http://scienceblogs.com/stoat/2012/03/how_not_to_

      These people behave like children but evidently they have some power to alter our reality.

      Other editors have tried to make similar changes and been banned.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_ta

      The whole experience was very odd and it was only later that i found out this had all happened before and Connolley was a well known activist.
