Climategate: Derision from the Telegraph

Oh my... The headline rather speaks for itself, does it not?

East Anglia CRU: welcome to the Piltdown Institute of Mann-made Global Warming
By Gerald Warner

It looks as if the Phil Jones University will have to be renamed, at least temporarily, since Phil himself is taking a short sabbatical while the decorators move in to do some heavy whitewashing. While we all have every confidence he will soon be back in charge of the CRU (Creative Research Unit), devising ever more inventive "tricks" to "hide the decline", I suggest the interim title of The Piltdown Institute of Mann-made Global Warming.

Speaking of Michael Mann, the jolly hockey stick merchant himself is also undergoing investigation - not to worry, it is of the most grudging and perfunctory kind - at Pennsylvania State University. The University's statement announcing the investigation is so complimentary to Mann, it almost reads like the press release of the verdict, published prematurely.

The man can do snark! The whole thing is worth the read!

What is clear is that the CRU should be shutdown.

If we assume that this "ClimateGate" is nothing, then clearly by the then obvious fact that the "science is settled", we don't need them any more, and the money can best be spent elsewhere. And all you "climate scientists" out there, I'm sorry but you hitched your wagon to a dead horse that isn't moving any more.

On the other hand, if "ClimateGate" is the worst scientific scandal of the century, these rascals should not be in the business any more.

Seems the containment grid around this scam is failing and the ghosts of the man made global warming fraud are escaping.

Victory is Mao's:

I don't care if you ridicule AGW true believers like me. I don't care if there are more polar bears than 50 years ago. I don't care if the net snow pack in Antarctica is growing. I don't care if the satellite data shows the earth is cooling down over the last 10 years. I don't care about the CRU fraud and I don't care about you!

You're filth! Filth, I say!

Les Nessman:

" Researcher: NASA hiding climate data

...Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

"I assume that what is there is highly damaging," Mr. Horner said. "These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this."..."

Les, your entry reminded me... (Below threshold)

Les, your entry reminded me of something I had heard a couple of years ago about NASA.

"NASA corrected an error in its data of temperature records, apparently caused by a Y2K bug....

The problem was discovered by Toronto-based Steve McIntyre, who runs the blog climateaudit.org. He found that the hottest year on record in the U.S. is 1934, not 1998 as NASA previously claimed. After making adjustments to NASA's data, McIntyre concluded about the hottest years in the U.S.:

Four of the top 10 are now from the 1930s: 1934, 1931, 1938 and 1939, while only 3 of the top 10 are from the last 10 years (1998, 2006, 1999). Several years (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004) fell well down the leaderboard, behind even 1900."
