Apparently, the culture of “moral equivalency” reaches even into the Senate. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) thinks the real tragedy and crime of Climategate is not the content within the e-mails, rather the way they were accessed and released. She wants Congress to investigate the hacker.
Quit saying that Stuart! Ed Begley was pretty funny practially pouting when arguing about the non-existent “consensus” on climate change with Stuart Varney on Your World last week. But when real climate scientists look at the facts and note how substantial the political process weighs on the scientific process, you can hear a pin drop.
The Wall Street Journal has published a selection of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom. If the tone of these e-mails do not prove the alarmists scientists are trying to destroy the skeptic scientists, I don’t know what will.
The Climate Research Unit (CRU) group of scientists based at the University of East Anglia had their mail server hacked and we’ve got quite a few links for you with the details. First off, if accessing and copying the information was illegal, those responsible should be charged. That said, how valuable is this information? Is the context missing? You decide.
One thing seems for certain when you browse through the links … the CRU scientists have absolutely no love for other scientists who may peer review and come up with a different opinion.
One site has built up a search engine for those of you familiar with the science and interested in wading through all of the documentation.
The Web site Bishop Hill has put together a valuable list of the most interesting information revealed in the e-mails. We found the Bishop Hill site through Sweetness & Light. Go read the full post, but here are the first four with out links to the details. Head over to Bishop Hill for the details and links to originals.
- Phil Jones writes to University of Hull to try to stop sceptic Sonia Boehmer Christiansen using her Hull affiliation. Graham F Haughton of Hull University says its easier to push greenery there now SB-C has retired.
- Michael Mann discusses how to destroy a journal that has published sceptic papers.
- Tim Osborn discusses how data are truncated to stop an apparent cooling trend showing up in the results.
- Phil Jones describes the death of sceptic, John Daly, as “cheering news”.
Update: John Hinderaker at Power Line has a great write-up on the CRU conspirators. It’s amazing how these crooks have a good portion
