Climate Change Data Dumped ~ CLIMATEGATE

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.

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.

The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.

The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

The admission follows the leaking of a thousand private emails sent and received by Professor Phil Jones, the CRU’s director. In them he discusses thwarting climate sceptics seeking access to such data.

In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”

The CRU is the world’s leading centre for reconstructing past climate and temperatures. Climate change sceptics have long been keen to examine exactly how its data were compiled.

That is now impossible.

Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, discovered data had been lost when he asked for original records. “The CRU is basically saying, ‘Trust us’. So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,” he said.

Have to play this again. hahahahaha

Hmmmmmm how convenient. These guys aren’t just hucksters, they’re outright criminals.

Just a new twist on an old excuse:

“The dumpster ate my homework.”

In the world of real science, if the data doesn’t exist the conclusions are invalid. Real scientists would only use readily available data, and where it doesn’t exist— everything that occurs after that is rendered useless. Especially given the recent revelations, one wonders if the data ever really existed (in which case it should exist somewhere other than CRU), or whether they manufactured it and lost the information on how they did it.

In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”

What the heck are they thinking. You call this science?

Science calls for replicating data to check accuracy. No data replication, no accuracy.

This has nothing to do with science, and everything to do with POLITICAL POWER and money making scams to Al Gore and others.

Dumping the data is unforgivable, but hiding that it was dumped, and pretending that loss of the original data is unimportant and the massaged data has higher intrinsic value is even worse.

No data, no argument for global warming.

Goodbye global warming.

Back to Drill baby drill. YESSSSS PLEASE Dear God!

The “believers” (obamabots and gorebots) still believe. They’ve all had teleprompters installed in their brain and they simply say whatever pops up then have this blank stare.

How convenient. They won't be able to duplicate the lost data because real data did not exist in the real world, I doubt that they can remember their lies. I posted a couple of good clips yesterday on gorebal warming.

Maybe now the global warming hoax will die. The ruse has been found out and the climate scientists have been proven to be liars.

I know it won't happen under obama, but if we had an honest president and Congress, we would begin drilling our newly found oil reserves and becoming energy independent.

It's a lie just like global cooling. Just another way of getting people under their thumbs. If it was real, would Fat Albert be living in that huge house of his? I think everyone should do as much as they please to do for Mother Earth, but not go so far as to ruin her or try to "fix" what God created. It should be your choice, not some bureaucrat in Washington's choice for you.

My Death Star II crew say's "Danger... Danger...
Beware of the Goreons!"

Thank you everyone.

I wish this information and the other we
have found out about would be enough to
stop the insanity of all this Cap and Trade
