Climategate – Copenhagen’s Shabby Science –
Breaking Climategate/Climate Change Related Stories
Hopefully the climate science community will try to redeem their now severely tarnished reputations so the world can find out what the truth is about climate change. Regardless of one’s views about climate change and human activity’s role in it, it could very well be/become critical to develop/have technology to remove/add CO2 from the atmosphere as needed for global warming or cooling.
At this point in time, we do know that Al Gore’s hoaxers masquerading as scientists have been making crap up.
From The Telegraph:
Climategate just got much, much bigger. And all thanks to the Russians who, with perfect timing, dropped this bombshell just as the world’s leaders are gathering in Copenhagen to discuss ways of carbon-taxing us all back to the dark ages.
A discussion of the November 2009 Climatic Research Unit e-mail hacking incident, referred to by some sources as “Climategate,” continues against the backdrop of the abortive UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen (COP15) discussing alternative agreements to replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that aimed to combat global warming.
The incident involved an e-mail server used by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, East England. Unknown persons stole and anonymously disseminated thousands of e-mails and other documents dealing with the global-warming issue made over the course of 13 years.
Controversy arose after various allegations were made including that climate scientists colluded to withhold scientific evidence and manipulated data to make the case for global warming appear stronger than it is.
Climategate has already affected Russia. On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.
The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory. Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports. Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations….Continue Reading

Russian Climate Center Accuses CRU of Cherry-Picking to Concoct Warming in RussiaBy Duncan Davidson|Dec 16, 2009, 1:35 PM
Russian papers are reporting that another fallout of ClimateGate is that Hadley/CRU has distorted the climate of 1/8th of the planet by cherry-picking warmer stations and ignoring the colder ones (emphasis added):

Plan to move Gitmo detainees to Illinois sparks concerns
By Mimi Hall and Judy Keen, USA TODAY
President Obama‘s announcement that the government will send terrorism suspects from Guantanamo Bay to an Illinois prison raised questions and sparked protests Tuesday over whether the new lockup will pose a security risk.
In a letter to Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, top administration officials including Defense Secretary Robert Gates called the plan “part of the president’s aggressive posture in the fight against al-Qaeda.”
The decision to buy a nearly vacant state prison in Thomson, Ill., to house as many as 100 alleged terrorists is the latest step in Obama’s effort to close the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center. …Continue Reading
