    ***************

    8.15 PM UPDATE: The Hadley University of East Anglia CRU director admits the emails seem to be genuine:



    The director of Britain’s leading Climate Research Unit, Phil Jones, has told Investigate magazine’s TGIF Edition tonight ..."It was a hacker. We were aware of this about three or four days ago that someone had hacked into our system and taken and copied loads of data files and emails."…

    TGIF asked Jones about the controversial email discussing “hiding the decline”, and Jones explained what he was trying to say….

    So the 1079 emails and 72 documents seem indeed evidence of a scandal involving most of the most prominent scientists pushing the man-made warming theory - a scandal that is one of the greatest in modern science. I’ve been adding some of the most astonishing in updates below - emails suggesting conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more. If it is as it now seems, never again will “peer review” be used to shout down sceptics.

    This is clearly not the work of some hacker, but of an insider who’s now blown the whistle.

    Not surprising, then, that Steve McIntyre reports:

    Earlier today, CRU cancelled all existing passwords. Actions speaking loudly.

    But back to the original post - and the most astonishing of the emails so far…

    ***************

    Hackers have broken into the data base of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit - one of the world’s leading alarmist centres - and put the files they stole on the Internet, on the grounds that the science is too important to be kept under wraps.

    The ethics of this are dubious, to say the least. But the files suggest, on a very preliminary glance, some other very dubious practices, too, and a lot of collusion - sometimes called “peer review”. Or even conspiracy.

    A warning, of course. We can only say with a 90 per cent confidence interval that these emails are real.

    It sure is a good thing Al "Go Green" Gore invented the internet so hackers could do their dirty deeds on this nasty scheme. I like the Confidence Interval. That adds some panache.

    Oh, and least I forget, Al "Go Green" Gore has made $100's of millions on the "Warming" theory and its illegitimate offspring...........

    Gore is in a no-win situation... There are only 2 possibilities: Option A, he knew this was a fraud, and he is therefore exposed as a fraud.

    Alternately, he believed the flawed science, and he's just a dipstick... and his entire business and reputation hinge on that very distinction. He has to be a "true believer"... he won a Nobel Prize for this crap.


    Of course, the Nobel doesn't carry the prestige it used to...

    I saw this a while back on Beck's show... I haven't read up about this as I have been incredibly busy the last few weeks, but if this guy is correct, this hoax is over... he certainly sounds like he knows what he is talking about.

    Clip 2


    This is worth watching to the end... he calls out Gore and tells him to debate with him or shut the... ahem... shut up about this...

    Question

    Just a thought.

    So, how does anyone know the truth or validity of the claims of nefarious actions to expose nefarious actions?

    Is the question really "Where is the conspiracy" or should it be "Where are the conspiracies?"

    Folks are being gamed, it's clear. But, through which orifice and by whom? None of it seems clear, when both sides are working so hard to be heard above the din.

    Note: For those who would twist these comments to imply something else, understand that I have no particular dog in the fight, here, nor do I lean a certain way on the issues, as yet. I haven't done enough research into the issues to make up my own mind either way. That's not the point. The point is, I am wondering how anyone is to KNOW the validity of claims, when so many claims of untruth are slung from both corners. I'm simply pointing out how difficult it can be to know what's true, in a sea of untruths. That's all.

    While I agree in general, it also is fighting fire with fire. The ethics of the 'global warming conspiracy theorists' perhaps mean it is necessary to expose the truth.

    I had heard of this hacked email but I pretty much figured this is a hoaz. While I'm rocket surgeon I have a sense of smell. I drive along the coast along Tampa Bay going back and forth to work. When the tide is out there is always a methane smell. Recently, it donned on me that will take of it's self. "IF" the heat is causing the ice to melt and raise the level of the oceans then the amount methane will be temporarily decreased and back and forth.

    Great post, QK; I read these emails a while back, after hearing about it on Glenn Becks' show. I often have these discussions with folks because I work in the evil power industry, and just as often I point them to this link:

    MichaelCrichton.com | Environmentalism as Religion

    This really shoots the environmentalists argument full of holes, especially where "the myth of Eden" (not the biblical, but the environmental) is concerned. He also opines on how the scientists come up with their data, and how inherently flawed that process is, with no checks or balances to insure some kind of traceability and accountability. It also discusses in detail the habits of the peoples that inhabited this earth an why it is such a futile exercise to accuse any one race of peoples of being more racist or more destructive to our environment than any other.

    Enjoy!

    Oh yeah - I forgot, I also heard that the author of some of these hacked emails has come out in recent days and admitted that they are in fact valid and real, not hoaxes......

    I concur. The first thought that popped in my head was "This only confirms what we knew all along."

    BTW, the last report I read was that Al Gore is close to becoming a Billionaire.

    He's also the largest hypocrite on the planet earth.
