One of the most revealing documents ever released on how certain scientists who were manipulating data in favor of their conclusions about man-made climate change. Many proponents have been in damage control ever since trying to downplay the significance of those documents…
“What are the impacts from Climategate one year later? The scientific data continues to build conclusively proving that the Earth is warming. Just today, the National Climatic Data Center based in Asheville, NC confirmed that 2010 is already tied with 1998 as the warmest year on record based on date from January through October 2010. When the final two months of the year are computed, 2010 may emerge as the uncontested ‘winner.”
So there you have it, after 10 years of a cooling period, 2010 may be one of the warmest, conclusive evidence that man is the cause, right? Not exactly…If the evidence is so overwhelming then why was there a climategate in the first place?
Also, why was there a willingness to destroy information rather than release it under the British Freedom of Information (FOI) law and the intimidation of publications willing to publish skeptical articles if climate change was caused by man? The mainstream media practically avoided covering the story. There has only been since the documents were leaked to the public a year ago, twelve stories. Instead of reporting the news, their beliefs were injected into the stories, for example, Last December, Anne Thompson cited “experts” to bolster global warming science, saying “They say it doesn’t matter what’s in those emails. The Earth is changing.” So committed fraud by hiding “the decline,” evading government laws or trying to keep skeptics from being published didn’t matter to the mainstream media, which had been producing story after story for years about the supposed threat of climate change.
Some other errors were discovered as well last year, such as the Himalayan glaciers were going to disappear in 2035 which was used as climate-change evidence, rather than in 2350—an error drawn to the public’s attention not by a newspaper or a “skeptic” blogger but ….by an IPCC author.
Despite damage control in full mode, the public at large has become even more skeptical of the cause of climate-change, historically before cars were invented places like Greenland went through a warming period, (that’s how it got it’s name) then started to go through a cooling period where the Vikings who settled there had to leave. So when there are fluctuations in temperatures, it’s not proof in itself that man is the cause. Computer models are not conclusive evidence either.
What we learned from climategate is, proponents want to restore much of the earth back to the animals, and treat man like a disease that needs to stop spreading. We also learned that scientists will manipulate the data even more so now because their allies have cleared them and no punishment happened as a result.
