If you rely on ‘yahoo’ for your news, you’ll have pretty much missed out on “climate-gate”.  This involves leaked emails from the climate research center that the UN relies on for its global warming projections.  Some highlights:

  1.  Lack of Peer Review:  A few of the key players in global warming science intimidated journals into not publishing articles that contradicted the “consensus” on global warming.  They also tended to review each other’s papers, so the whole “peer review” and “consensus” is basically an incestuous group of well funded climate scientists.
  2. No Freedom of Information:  Apparently, people are supposed to have access to raw data and modeling information upon request.  The emails indicate efforts to deny access to outside scientists who wanted to check the numbers.  It turns out that the lab threw out all their raw temperature data, so only the “value added” numbers are available now.
  3. Data Massaging.  Data were fudged or massaged to frame them as rising temperatures.  Here’s an example quote that is showing up everywhere:

“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (i.e., from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith to hide the decline [of temperatures]”

If you are wondering what is being hidden, here is a graph from http://climateaudit.org/ showing it.  (BTW,”Mike” is Dr. Michael Mann from Penn State, another reason to be ashamed of my school).  THE STUFF IN RED IS WHAT WAS “HIDDEN”.  Note that this doesn’t include the past few years of the decline (see Temperature Trends below).
