Climategate was real. Don’t be a Climategate denier!

McIntyre and Mckitrick (here) correct climate gate myths:

“Given the importance of climate science in today’s society, all of us expect more of climate scientists than merely that they not commit “outright fraud.” Exoneration at such a low threshold would be small exoneration indeed.
However, rather than confronting the corruption and misconduct apparent throughout the Climategate emails, the climate academic community shut their eyes to the affair, eventually even persuading itself that the offending scientists were victims, rather than offenders.This re-framing was made possible by numerous myths propagated about the affair, of which the following were especially important:
Myth #1: The Climategate scandal arose because “cherrypicked” emails were taken “out of context”.
Myth #2: The Climategate correspondents were “exonerated” following “thorough” and impartial investigations.
Myth #3: Scientific studies subsequent to Climategate have “confirmed” and “verified” the original Mann hockey stick.
These are only the major myths from a veritable tsunami of disinformation from the academic community. The myths are untrue and, in this article, we will explain why.”  (click here)

Climate fraud explained; Question and object to NOAA/NASA temperature data tampering

Climategate and NASA data tampering are real

“It really doesn’t matter in what order you rearrange the Climategate emails. You get the same result every time: a bunch of second-raters bullying dissenters, troughing lavish grants, racking up air miles on conference freebies, cooking the books, manipulating the evidence, torturing the data till it screams in order to make man-made global warming look like a much more significant and well-understood problem than it actually is.” click here

ClimateGate continues from University of Arizona emails release

“The files released cover emails from Michael Mann to Malcolm Hughes, Eugene Wahl, Caspar Amman, Ray Bradley, and Jonathan Overpeck. Plus there were additional requests for anything out of UEA (Phil Jones at CRU).

The FOIA request goes all the way back to December of 2011, it’s taken this long to get released. Mann fought the release all the way.

Here is a sample, where Keith Briffa of CRU says that Mann’s data (and others) do in fact show a Medieval Warm Period.” click here

“ClimateGate” investigations revisited

“A true exoneration of someone accused of misconduct would involve transparent, thorough exchanges between the supporters and opponents of the accused. Then, at the conclusion of that process, there would be clear, verifiable proof that the charges were incorrect. That did not occur with respect to Mr. Mann.” click here

ClimateGate Returns

Late last week Arizona Superior Court Justice James Marner granted the Energy & Environment Legal Institute’s (E&E Legal’s) motion requesting release of ‘Climategate’ related emails withheld for years by the University of Arizona (UofA).” click here

ClimateGate Peer-Review Nonsense

A reminder from the past about how peer-review can be abused: 

“So, what’s going on here is that Phil Jones is trying to influence a review of a paper that officemate Tim Osborn is doing, but he wants people he’s asking to “forget” that he ever inquired about the issue so that Phil [ensures Tom] is “squeaky clean” when it comes to his opinion.”  Click here for WUWT
