ClimateGate: CRU Agrees To Publish All The Data. That They Haven’t Thrown Away


Yesterday, the “scientists” involved in ClimateGate made an important announcement

Leading British scientists at the University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate change data – dubbed Climategate – have agreed to publish their figures in full.

In a statement welcomed by climate change sceptics, the university said it would make all the data accessible as soon as possible, once its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had negotiated its release from a range of non-publication agreements.

Today, “um, well, ya see, our Bad!”

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.

They are saying they dumped the raw data, after it had been adjusted, massaged, given a nice vacation in the Sahara Desert, during a move to a new building to save room. The originals, kept on paper and magnetic tape (it was the 80’s, after all), were deemed unimportant. Considering the real importance of the data, and the money these folks have been granted over the years, it might have been worth the investment to rent a self storage space, or build a shed, or something.

Considering the importance of the data in showing that their theories about Man induced warming, this could be one way of “hiding the decline.” Just wait till the government hearings start, and they have to explain why they dumped the data, and are raked over the coals.

Riehl World View: 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.

TigerHawk: 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?
