YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS to believe it!
A Story of Intrigue, Deception & Secrecy
(Click on chart) Look up close and admire the detail while you despair at how long science has been going off the rails. To better appreciate the past and what was exposed by the CRU emails, the Timeline chart consolidates and chronologically organizes the information uncovered and published about the CRU emails by many researchers along with some related contextual events. That the chart exists at all is yet another example of how skilled experts are flocking to the skeptics’ position and dedicating hours of time pro bono because they are passionately motivated to fight against those trying to deceive us.
In November 17, 2009 some 3,000 emails, software files, and other documents from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit were covertly released onto the Internet. The UK’s Daily Telegraph described the result as “The Worst Scientific Scandal of Our Generation.”
As Charlie Martin explained in “Global WarmingGate: What Does It Mean,” the emails suggested:
1. The authors co-operated covertly to ensure that only papers favorable to CO2-forced AGW [Anthropogenic Global Warming or man-made global warming] were published, and that editors and journals publishing contrary papers were punished. They also attempted to ‘discipline’ scientists and journalists who published skeptical information.
2. The authors manipulated and ‘massaged’ the data to strengthen the case in favor of unprecedented CO2-forced AGW, and to suppress their own data if it called AGW into question.
3. The authors co-operated (perhaps the word is ‘conspired’) to prevent data from being made available to other researchers through either data archiving requests or through the Freedom of Information Acts of both the U.S. and the UK.
