More Evidence of Hadley CRU Fakery

More Hadley CRU FakeryNORWICH, England: The recent hacking of the the Hadley Climate Research Unit has the world abuzz about the apparent falsifying of data and conclusions by this formerly respected scientific agency. (Read more about the hackers here.)

Turns out this is far from the first time that the Hadley CRU has been discredited. As early as 1995 these guys were bending data, using selective recursion to manipulate results of tree ring analysis to simulate the “hockey stick” graph. This graph supposedly showed an alarming increase in world temperatures during recent years. The increase was to coincide with industrial activity, “proving” the need for unsuspecting and ill-informed government policy-makers to pass draconian measures on industry to curtail CO2 emissions. (CO2- yes, that’s the stuff you breathe out and plants love to breathe in.)

As revealed in his article “Treemometers: A new scientific scandal” in the UK Register Andrew Orlowski explains:

A scientific scandal is casting a shadow over a number of recent peer-reviewed climate papers. At least eight papers purporting to reconstruct the historical temperature record times may need to be revisited, with significant implications for contemporary climate studies, the basis of the IPCC’s assessments. A number of these involve senior climatologists at the British climate research centre CRU at the University East Anglia. In every case, peer review failed to pick up the errors…

Scientists have ensured much of the measurement data used in the reconstructions remains a secret – failing to fulfill procedures to archive the raw data. Without the raw data, other scientists could not reproduce the results. The most prestigious peer reviewed journals, including Nature and Science, were reluctant to demand the data from contributors. Until now, that is.

At the insistence of editors of the Royal Society’s Philosophical Transactions B the data has leaked into the open – and Yamal’s mystery is no more…

In all there are 252 cores in the CRU Yamal data set, of which ten were alive 1990. All 12 cores selected show strong growth since the mid-19th century. The implication is clear: the dozen were cherry-picked. Andrew Orlowski, UK Register

As you read the copious analysis you will see that that these so-called “Researchers” picked the worst data to prove their pre-conceived assertions, using only 12 samples from a group of 252. This type of selective presentation is all too consistent with Hadley CRU “research” techniques. When the complete data set was factored into the analysis by other scientists a completely different picture emerged:

The revised chronology was simply staggering. The sharp uptick in the series at the end of the twentieth century had vanished, leaving a twentieth century apparently without a significant trend. The blade of the Yamal hockey stick, used in so many of those temperature reconstructions that the IPCC said validated Michael Mann’s work, was gone. Bishop Hill, The Yamal Implosion

So the “hockey stick” was whittled out of a few gnarled samples. When scientists examined the entire group of samples, Hadley’s hockey stick turned into an ordinary walking stick.

The files that are now being widely disseminated across the Internet show that the hockey stick fabrication is par for the course as far as “Climate Research” is concerned. Thanks to the hackers who penetrated the wall of obfuscation presented by the Hadley CRU we now have further evidence of Hadley fakery. Who can doubt the authenticity of the leaked documents when the director of the CRU admits that the documents “appear genuine,” especially when you consider the above Yamal prevarication.

You can download the files yourself here. A searchable online source where you can read the email (but not the additional files) is provided at EastAngliaEmails.com.  You can examine the evidence decide for yourself how much prevarication is going on.

    I know what I will be reading over thanksgiving… This is big. When will the major networks start covering this? Thanks for archiving the raw data here.
