Stole this from another site.Scientific progress depends on accurate and complete data. It also relies on replication. The past couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations about the baloney practices that pass as sound science about climate change.

It was announced Thursday afternoon that computer hackers had obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. Those e-mails involved communication among many scientific researchers and policy advocates with similar ideological positions all across the world. Those purported authorities were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global-warming claims.

Professor Phil Jones, the head of the Climate Research Unit, and professor Michael E. Mann at Pennsylvania State University, who has been an important scientist in the climate debate, have come under particular scrutiny. Among his e-mails, Mr. Jones talked to Mr. Mann about the "trick of adding in the real temps to each series ... to hide the decline [in temperature]."

Mr. Mann admitted that he was party to this conversation and lamely explained to the New York Times that "scientists often used the word 'trick' to refer to a good way to solve a problem 'and not something secret.' " Though the liberal New York newspaper apparently buys this explanation, we have seen no benign explanation that justifies efforts by researchers to skew data on so-called global-warming "to hide the decline." Given the controversies over the accuracy of Mr. Mann's past research, it is surprising his current explanations are accepted so readily.

• Food snobs fork over $225 for taste of heritage turkey

There is a lot of damning evidence about these researchers concealing information that counters their bias. In another exchange, Mr. Jones told Mr. Mann: "If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I'll delete the file rather than send to anyone" and, "We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind." Mr. Jones further urged Mr. Mann to join him in deleting e-mail exchanges about the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) controversial assessment report (ARA): "Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re [the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report]?"

In another e-mail, Mr. Jones told Mr. Mann, professor Malcolm K. Hughes of the University of Arizona and professor Raymond S. Bradley of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst: "I'm getting hassled by a couple of people to release the CRU station temperature data. Don't any of you three tell anybody that the UK has a Freedom of Information Act!"

At one point, Mr. Jones complained to another academic, "I did get an email from the [Freedom of Information] person here early yesterday to tell me I shouldn't be deleting emails." He also offered up more dubious tricks of his trade, specifically that "IPCC is an international organization, so is above any national FOI. Even if UEA holds anything about IPCC, we are not obliged to pass it on." Another professor at the Climate Research Unit, Tim Osborn, discussed in e-mails how truncating a data series can hide a cooling trend that otherwise would be seen in the results. Mr. Mann sent Mr. Osborn an e-mail saying that the results he was sending shouldn't be shown to others because the data support critics of global warming.

Repeatedly throughout the e-mails that have been made public, proponents of global-warming theories refer to data that has been hidden or destroyed. Only e-mails from Mr. Jones' institution have been made public, and with his obvious approach to deleting sensitive files, it's difficult to determine exactly how much more information has been lost that could be damaging to the global-warming theocracy and its doomsday forecasts.

We don't condone e-mail theft by hackers, though these e-mails were covered by Britain's Freedom of Information Act and should have been released. The content of these e-mails raises extremely serious questions that could end the academic careers of many prominent professors. Academics who have purposely hidden data, destroyed information and doctored their results have committed scientific fraud. We can only hope respected academic institutions such as Pennsylvania State University, the University of Arizona and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst conduct proper investigative inquiries.

Most important, however, these revelations of fudged science should have a cooling effect on global-warming hysteria and the panicked policies that are being pushed forward to address the unproven theory.

I just heard about this **** too and the scientists work with govt grants so they do what ever it takes to keep the man paying there bills happy.. We cant even believe the scientists either..... Who can you trust.....

And even after it was proved that these scientist said those words of faking weather data ,,I listened to a couple people say that the computer hackers were a made up story by the republicans.. how does the left get these people that think like these two do and still get them out to vote ,,give them cigarettes.?

I too have been reading about this, Sandchris. Those of us that grew up in the 70s remember the menace of global cooling. That didn't happen, so we got global warming. In between we had the ozone hole. In every case the "researchers" ignored any data that refuted their preconceived ideas, and the press and politicians jumped on board.

In the end, one has to ask: is it really about the environment, or about control of people? The left really hates America's economy, and freedom. If they can crush our economy through things like cap and trade, and take our guns, we will fall under their onslaught. Everyone needs to remind their elected representatives of their obligation to the Constitution of the U.S. Europe and the rest of the panty-waisted world, that so freely has given up their freedom, can go to hell. That might be the only global warming they will ever actually see.

Very good points Elko. What is funny is that they still believe it. I mean the data shows clearly that it is cooling down yet they know best just cause they are greenies and sceintist. Oh if Sara was only A man.....LOL

You guys know Al Gore canceled a big rally speech deal his was supposed to do today. Wonder why?

Could this be it ?

Gore had been scheduled speak at an event in Copenhagen on December 16, but now press reports and the event organizers report that he will not be appearing.

According to a story at WashingtonTimes.com:

As described in The Washington Times' Inside the Beltway column Tuesday, the multimedia public event to promote Mr. Gore's new book, "Our Choice," included $1,209 VIP tickets that granted the holder a photo opportunity with Mr. Gore and a "light snack."

Berlingkse Media, a Danish group coordinating ticket sales and publicity for the event, said that "great annoyance" was a factor in the cancellation, along with unforeseen changes in Mr. Gore's program for the climate summit. The decision affected 3,000 ticket holders.

"We have had a clear-cut agreement, and it is unusual with great disappointment that we have to announce that Al Gore cancels. We had a huge expectation for the event. . . . We do not yet know the detailed reasons for the cancellation," said Lisbeth Knudsen, CEO of Berlingske Media, in a statement posted by the company.​
In point of fact, the $1,209 VIP event was scheduled to precede a speech by Mr. Gore, which, according to the event website, had ticket costs ranging from approximately $39 to $299. It is not hard, therefore, to imagine the frustration expressed by Lisbeth Knudsen.

While it is not hard to estimate the small fortune that Gore and Berlingske Media will not be making on account of the cancellation, the far more interesting question is: “Why did Gore cancel?” According to a FOXNews.com report:

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider says the decision was made because of "all the events going on with the summit." Dec. 16 is a key date for the meeting because that's when the ministerial segment starts.​
Gore has spent years promoting a theory which has come under greater public scrutiny in the last few weeks than it has faced in years. With scandals erupting over “Climate-gate” and with data allegedly being destroyed or misplaced, the outcome of the conference is no longer as certain as it seemed just a few weeks ago. The sudden silence of the climate change theory’s most prominent promoter is just the latest piece in the puzzle.

From what I hear no one can even get in contact with Al Gore to get his responce , They need to check the local buffet. lol. He tends to "bulk up" when this kind of stuff happens.

Do you remember1987......


























Thought you

might be interested in this forgotten bit of

information.........



It was 1987! At a lecture the other day they were playing an old news video of
Lt. Col. Oliver North testifying at the Iran-Contra hearings during the Reagan
Administration.



There was Ollie in front of God and country getting the
third degree, but what he said was stunning!



He was being drilled by a
senator, 'Did you not recently spend close to $60,000 for a home security
system?'



Ollie replied, 'Yes, I did, Sir.'



The senator
continued, trying to get a laugh out of the
audience, 'Isn't that just a little
excessive?'



'No, sir,' continued Ollie.



'No? And why not?' the
senator asked.



'Because the lives of my family and I were threatened, sir.'



'Threatened? By whom?' the senator
questioned.



'By a
terrorist, sir' Ollie answered.



'Terrorist? What terrorist could
possibly scare you that much?'



'His name is Osama bin Laden, sir' Ollie
replied.



At this point the senator tried to repeat the name, but
couldn't pronounce it, which most people back then
probably couldn't. A couple
of people laughed at the attempt. Then the senator
continued. Why are you so
afraid of this man?' the senator asked..



'Because, sir, he is the most
evil person alive that I know of', Ollie answered.





'And what do you recommend we do about him?' asked the
senator.



'Well, sir, if it was up to me, I would recommend that an
assassin team be formed to
eliminate him and his men from the face of the earth.'



The senator
disagreed with this approach, and that was all that was shown of the clip.







By
the way, that senator was Al Gore!



Also:


Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus inIsrael
in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and
imprisoned him. As part of the
Oslo agreement with the Palestinians in 1993, Israel had to agree to release
so-called 'political prisoners.'



However, the Israelis would not release
any with blood on their hands. The American President at the time, Bill Clinton, and his Secretary of State, Warren Christopher,
'insisted' that all prisoners be
released.



Thus Mohammad Atta was freed and eventually thanked us by
flying an airplane into Tower One of the
World Trade Center. This was reported
by many of the American TV networks at the time that the terrorists were first
identified.

It was censored in the US from all
later reports.
