So, the wheels are coming off the global warming bandwagon at last and not a moment too soon.
With the Copenhagen Climate Summit almost upon us, some enterprising hackers have managed to find their way into the University of East Anglia’s network and copied over 1,000 emails, data files and code from their climate change propaganda department. And they make interesting reading …
One “scientist”, Tim Osborn, told his colleagues to delete data rather than release it under the Freedom of Information Act. Another “scientist”, Phil Jones, explained how he used a “trick” pioneered by another “scientist” to hide cooling trends.
Michael Mann, another “scientist”, said he would be contacting the BBC to find out why a journalist was allowed to write a vaguely sceptical article. Another one, Kevin Trenberth, admits that they can’t explain why there is no global warming.
The Information Commissioner has apparently advised “scientists” on how to avoid releasing information under the Freedom of Information Act. Tom Wigley, another of the “scientists” admits that “scientists” have been dishonestly claiming their predictions fit the IPPC climate model.
We’re being taxed and regulated into the dark ages in the name of climate change and here we have evidence that it’s nothing more than a scam motivated by hundreds of millions of pounds of government funding available for “scientists” that come up with the right answers.
Some excellent reading on Climategate:
