Climategate Data Dumped by Hadley CRU

Hadley CRU - Epicenter of ClimategateNORWICH, England: It has been entertaining watching rabid global warming advocates trying to defend their position after the leaking of internal data by the Hadley CRU last on November 19th (leaked files here). The NIP reported further Hadley fakery, showing how the researchers ignored data contradicting their results.

But the story just keeps getting better and better. If you watch the video below you will see Ed Begley arguing with Stuart Varney. This smarmy actor keeps saying to check “peer reviewed studies” to find the facts, in other words ignore the leaked files, and don’t read them or think for yourself.

What happens though when reputable scientists want to review the data and perform those “peer reviewed studies” and are told by the Hadley CRU that the data was dumped, and they no longer have it? That’s right, they dumped their own data to prevent others from reviewing their work.

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 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 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. Jonathan Leake, UK Times

So much for peer reviewed studies. What self-respecting researchers would dump their own data? Only ones who didn’t want to have their conclusions reviewed. Thank you Hadley CRU. The NIP acknowledges your creativity in fabricating results. Certainly a marvelous example of prevarication at its finest, right next to “the dog ate my homework.”

    Where do you get off publishing such misinformation? Do you get paidby any fossil fuel corps – or just enthusiastically swept up in the ‘climategate’ silliness?
