ClimateGate Denial


There is a lot of denial out there, from the alarmist crowd on the effect of ClimateGate on Global Warming, err, Climate Change. Jones wrote: “My colleagues and I accept that some of the published emails do not read well… Some were clearly written in the heat of the moment, others use colloquialisms frequently used between close colleagues.”

As can be suspected, RealClimate is still in full “Cover Our Ass” mode. They are saying that it is all taken out of context. As I said before, I’m sure some of it is out of context. The code that CRU used is the worst offender. The code used to plot the data and create those wonderful “hockey Stick” graphs used to scare everyone to cut off their left foot to save the planet, was not, I repeat not out of context nor was is written in the “heat of the moment.” The coding is deliberate, and as such gives a greater insight into what was going on.

Of course there is more. It will take time to figure out all the tricks they used to “avoid the decline.” The main point is that they CRU crew were deathly afraid of this decline. Specifically the divergence from the tree ring data and temperature. Here is what the graph would look like if the post 1960 data is put in to the graph.
Where is the sudden rise in temperatures that the very “credible” CRU crew has been telling us is right there? There is no “Hockey Stick!” Tell Gore to give back his Nobel.

Now there can be something said that the tree ring data for post-1960 isn’t accurate. So if it’s not accurate post-60’s, how can we be certain it’s accurate pre-1960? There is a serious lack of credibility in the data here. This same data has been used to write up IPCC reports that keep telling us we are cooking the planet. These same data sets have been referenced and used in hundred of climate models. The same models that fail to show the recent cooling/stability in global mean temperature. Simply put, the whole deck of cards has been built on a very weak foundation, that is now starting to crumble. Every paper that has used the CRU data sets, has to be re-written and reevaluated. Anything less is sloppy and junk science. This from CBS news.

…the CRU wields outsize influence: it claims the world’s largest temperature data set, and its work and mathematical models were incorporated into the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2007 report. That report, in turn, is what the Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged it “relies on most heavily” when concluding that carbon dioxide emissions endanger public health and should be regulated.

Let’s put it in terms that the Left knows, Enron scandal.
Enron (CRU) has been keeping it’s books closed so know one can verify what they have been doing. A whistleblower (hacker) alerts everyone that Enron has been cooking the books. Auditors (McIntyre/Skeptical crowd) comes in and finds serious breaches in ethics and standards (Emails, Code from Jones, Mann and Hansen).
Do you:
A) Try to prosecute the whitle blower for violating Enron’s right to privacy? (Not the case in CG, since CRU is publicly funded and subject to FOI laws)

B) Admit that is looks bad, but assure everyone that Enron is doing a full internal audit and they will straighten everything out themselves. (This is whats coming from RealClimate, Univ East Anglia, WaPo and numerous Left media camps)

C) Demand full transperency and hold Enron (Jones, Mann, Harris, Schmidt etc) accountable for what is, FRUAD! Demand that everyone has a chance too look at the books and do full independent audits and hold Congressional hearing in the matter.

D) A&B

I’m simply amazed at how the Left, in response to Enron, wants C. Now that it’s ClimateGate, they want D.
