'Climategate' review clears scientists of dishonesty

An independent report released Wednesday into the leaked "Climategate" e-mails found no evidence to question the "rigor and honesty" of scientists involved.

In November 2009, the integrity of the CRU and its research were called into question after the publication of more than 1,000 emails, dating back to 1996, to and from scientists employed there.

Particular attention focused on one e-mail from the unit's head, Professor Phil Jones, which referred to a "trick" being used on data submitted to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1999.

Jones wrote: "I've just completed Mike's Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years ... to hide the decline."

The scandal fueled skepticism about the case for global warming just weeks before world leaders met to agree a global deal on climate change at a United Nations conference in Copenhagen last December.

The seven-month review, led by Muir Russell, found scientists at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) did not unduly influence reports detailing the scale of the threat of global warming produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The review found the figure supplied for the WMO was in fact misleading, given its "subsequent iconic significance (not least the use of a similar figure in the IPCC Third Assessment Report)."

It said: "We do not find that it is misleading to curtail reconstructions at some point per se, or to splice data, but we believe that both of these procedures should have been made plain."

Of the language used by the CRU scientists, the report said that it was generally "informal, using slang, jargon and acronyms."

In his submission, Jones told the review that "the word 'trick' was not intended to imply any deception, simply the 'best way of doing or dealing with something.'"

The review found, "crucially, the e-mails cannot always be relied upon as evidence of what actually occurred, nor indicative of actual behavior that is extreme, exceptional or unprofessional."

My comments:

I don't know about you, but as for me, this is so insulting that even when these charlatans are exposed for their false claims, fabrications and outright frauds, these investigations conclude to find no evidence to question these “scientists” "honesty".

There is not even a mention of consequence for the head of this conspiracy of global warming “research” Professor Phil Jones and the scientist who was referred to in Jone's email, Michael Mann who were caught red-handed for their “dishonesty” and deception. Remember: these "discoveries" and the findings that these "scientists: come up with, cost American tax payers, billions of dollars. This is nothing short of a MONUMENTAL COVER-UP!

And the outcome will predictably be that the Congress and this President will shamelessly continue with this train-wreck by burdening the American People with a loathsome Climate Energy Global Warming Tax and Spend Bill that will destroy small businesses and therefore the American economy irreparably, (the giant corporations, who are taking the lead of this bill will weather this shell game just fine) forcing an economic depression and breakdown of the American system.

I am noting these climate-gate conspirators of infamy that were mentioned in the article as defenders of this junk science scam, not including those who pay these “compromised” “scientists” their exorbitant salaries, because they are really deserving to be forever designated to the Hall of Shame: Phil Jones, head of Climate Research Unit team (CRU), when this expose’ took place, Michael Mann, the scientist whose email was exposed in this conspiracy, Edward Acton, Vice-Chancellor of the University of East Anglia, Penn State University, Brian Hoskins, at London's Imperial College, and Muir Russell.

How can we, the American people, put up with this sort of dishonesty and deception any longer from people that can’t even call such behavior and falsehoods for what it is: A LIE AND GIGANTIC WORLD-WIDE FRAUD!

Climate scientist Michael Mann, referred to by Phil Jones' email about "Mike's Nature trick,' said he hoped Wednesday's report would put this "bogus, manufactured scandal behind us." What! Oh, I get-it; it's us citizens who are at fault.

Think about what is happening to us for a minute as we are being subjected to comments like this by the man who was caught in a conspiracy of fraud and manufactured pseudo science, when he, Michael Mann, describes this investigation as bogus - he can say this without any shame whatsoever, “a bogus, manufactured scandal” that can now be put behind us”. I just can’t stand this arrogance and elitists thinking that we are being subjected to. This is out and out tyranny and we Americans are accepting it as just another bump in the road. Where is our outrage! Where is our call to action and demand for accountability?

But instead, they will get away with this, without condemnation from this phony news media or from our Congress and President without even hardly a moment of reflection to instead, “lets just move on people”

The American people and the population of the world are being raped, ravaged and killed by these “world mega corporation controllers”, and we have learned to accept it as just part of our every day way of life.

As Americans, we’re not just asleep - no, we’re in a coma.
