Subject: The Worst Scientific Scandal of Our Generation
Climate change data dumped
SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
>Our hopelessly compromised scientific establishment cannot be allowed
>to get away with a whitewash of what has become the greatest
>scientific scandal of our age.
Climate change: this is the worst scientific scandal of our generation
There are three threads in particular in the leaked documents which have sent a shock wave through informed observers across the world
- - highly disturbing series of emails which show how Dr Jones and his colleagues have for years been discussing the devious tactics whereby they could avoid releasing their data to outsiders under freedom of information laws.
- - The second and most shocking revelation of the leaked documents is how they show the scientists trying to manipulate data through their tortuous computer programmes, always to point in only the one desired direction ? to lower past temperatures and to "adjust" recent temperatures upwards, in order to convey the impression of an accelerated warming...In each case it is clear that the same trick has been played ? to turn an essentially flat temperature chart into a graph which shows temperatures steadily rising. And in each case this manipulation was carried out under the influence of the CRU.
- - The third shocking revelation of these documents is the ruthless way in which these academics have been determined to silence any expert questioning of the findings they have arrived at by such dubious methods ? not just by refusing to disclose their basic data but by discrediting and freezing out any scientific journal which dares to publish their critics' work. It seems they are prepared to stop at nothing to stifle scientific debate in this way, not least by ensuring that no dissenting research should find its way into the pages of IPCC reports.
