Last week either a whistle blower or hacker downloaded and released more than a thousand emails and internal documents from the UN IPCC’s Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. This facility, also known as Hadley, is the leading global warming research center and it’s scientists are the primary authors of the UN’s global warming research and temperature data for most modeling used at the international level for the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), as well as cited here in the U.S. by agencies and White House officials. I will try to keep this concise, and if you want to see for yourself just go on Google and type in the keywords “Hadley, hacked, global warming, email, fraud.” Any combination will take you to what you need, as the blogs were lit-up all weekend with the issue. As well, the front page of the New York Times covered the issue on Saturday (although the author of that article was mentioned in some of these emails as one of the people in the press they use, so his motives are questionable). All the emails/information have yet to be authenticated, but it appears that the documents show more than a decade of: 1. Suppression of Data 2. Destruction of data subject to FOIA requests 3. Organized subversion of the peer-review process 4. Coordinated efforts with media outlets 5. Blacklisting of scientific journals for political reasons 6. Blatant scientific fraud and misrepresentation of data 7. Manipulation of data for the UN/WTO’s political agenda 8. Strategies for tax evasion 9. Deceit of International and U.S. agencies for funding and grants 10. And much more… It is difficult to say just what the full implication of this information is, but it appears that there may be even further data coming available in the near future. Much of what is being said is speculation at this juncture, as a great many folk are working to mine through the emails. However, the CRU has made public that they were indeed hacked and much of the information appears to already be confirmed as legitimate. If so, this could well be the greatest act of scientific fraud in history (it will take a while to calculate the total amount of grant money achieved by fraud and the cost of climate change legislation “Cap-and-Trade” could have been in the $ trillions). Accordingly, nearly all of the international data and models supporting the theory of global warming would have been influenced by data corruption and fraud…with the blatant attempt to perpetuate the political agenda of global warming supporters and the UN IPCC. The emails and other released data also appear to implicate professors at some of the U.S.’s premier universities in a coordinated effort to achieve the IPCC agenda as well as to garner government grants. It is hard to guess what the fallout is from this information being released, but it is important to note that U.S. climate policy, as well as proposed new regulation under the Clean Air Act was based on the “science” from the IPCC research and the authors of the now public emails. As well as the Google search I suggested above, below are some links to what is getting around the web.
