CRU Tossed Raw Data: Global Warming Science Is Dead
Update: Click through here for video on potential prosecutions for fraud as a result of what these alleged scientists have done.
There are not enough words to describe what was done here by the so-called leading authorities behind the entire Global Warming idea. As TigerHawk puts it:
So, basically we are being asked to restructure the entire economy of the planet on the say-so of a few "scientists" whose work cannot be verified or even reconstructed. Is there any intellectually honest person who thinks that is a good idea?
Given that they adjusted the raw data to draw their conclusions and have tossed that raw data, added to the email generated concerns, there is no way these people can be trusted to even try and re-construct the source data by reversing any alleged equations used. They have behaved unethically, incompetently, potentially criminally, and more.
That information was subject to Freedom of Information Request. Any notion that there is reliable science driving the Global Warming debate needs to be discarded. And it is the very people pushing it who have destroyed every reason to believe in the alleged science along with them at this point. They are not worthy of trust at this point due to their own actions.
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 very foundation of science is that it be reproducible. These unprofessional hacks have made re-production of their work to validate their conclusions impossible. It can not legitimately be called science at all at this point. It's rubbish, precisely what their raw data became. What a scientific and political nightmare these irresponsible people have created for the world. They ought never be permitted to work anywhere in the field of science again.
