The rabbit hole gets deeper in Climategate.
Apparently the “gatekeepers” in charge of the data decided to throw a lot of that data away:
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.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.
It is beginning to look as though this is a conspiracy concocted on a grand scale. If these guys were so sure about their predictions, surely they wouldn’t need to throw away a lot of their own data, right?
And how does Obama respond to this news that the “peer-reviewed” science of global warming is fast turning out to be a scam? Why he’s going to Copenhagen to propose cutting greenhouse gas emissions to levels matching House legislation awaiting Senate action. This would be one of those times when Obama can exercise great judgment and turn away from this fiasco, but that would be asking too much of a true believer in global warming.
Indeed, for a politician intent on “transforming America” global warming presents the perfect opportunity to internationalize America’s economy.
As Roger Simon says succinctly: global warming allows politicians “to exploit the science of which they are ignorant and the scientists too often perfectly willing to be complicit in their own exploitation”. Truth is irrelevant so long as the goal of controlling people is achieved. Hmm. Sounds like the other debate we are having on healthcare…
