And then they should be charged.

In her comments defending the recent endangerment finding on greenhouse gases as a danger to human health, EPA administrator Lisa Jackson said the agency relied heavily on data obtained from the UNs IPCC. Guess where the IPCC got a lot of its data? You guessed itthe CRU at East Anglia University. Im not saying, Im just saying

I read Taylor Marsh's column and almost spit out my soda. She figures Palin doesn't care about children because children suffer from asthma and pollution causes asthma. I'm assuming she made the missing mental connection that CO2 is pollution without showing her work, but I'd really like to see the science that shows that CO2 causes asthma. Particularly from one who calls us "anti-science."

CO2 causes asathma? What a fool. Vaccinations cause autism and impotence too, I bet. These people are 21st century Ludites. It seems a few of us have a better education than these so-called climate scientists. Perhaps they were just educated beyond their intelligence. I wasn't. The crows will soon be home to roost. Karma will be calling on these liars.

Many of these climate scientists have very poor math/statistics skills, a damning lack for a profession that is so based on statistics.

Which is why these climatologist-warmers shriek like children when mathematician/economists like Steve McIntyre and Bjorn Lundgren destroy their models.

AGW is a complete fraud. Nothing new from the Left--everything they promote is a complete fraud.

global warming is as corrupt and discredited as any theory could possibly be.

that they still attempt to push it after what we've found out shows them to be no better than communist thugs who think they can do anything.

Stating that the CRU deliberately destroyed data is NOT an inaccuracy. It is what they did.

Whether they did so in an attempt to prevent others from having access to it, or simply as a result of poor respect for the safe archiving of data is unknown.

Perhaps they thought there really was no need to hold onto the data underlying all their research. That would be stupid and sloppy, but not evidence of malice or conspiracy. But there is no question that they deliberately destroyed it.

Exactly! I read that when newly-flush-with-funds CRU moved into its swanky new digs, they didn't want to store the data anymore; they didn't want to make room for all the hard copy boxes, etc.

Sooooo, like the true dedicated serious scholarly scientists they are, they just gave it the ol' heave ho into the trash bin.

Records...who needs any stinkin' original records?

Here's a prediction. Once the UK Met begins its recalculation of the 160 year global temps, NOAA/GISS will do the same. There will be a two part race. One will be who can be more/most open. Two will be who can get it done first.

Once the first, open recalculation is completed it will automatically become the "OFFICIAL" global temperature record. All others will be lesser with reducing grant receipts.

Competition is great!

the US NAvy believes the climate is changing and that the Arctic Ocean will be ice free in the summer by 2030.

The main country financing the climate change deniers is Saudi Arabia. They sell the most oil that is helping to produce this change and one of the countries in the lead in support is Israel who know that their high tech industry can help in the change to a non carbon based energy system

John, you link doesn't go to an active article.

But more importantly, I have a very simple question: Where does the navy get their climate data from?

I strongly suspect that the get their data from NASA (compromised) East Anglia CRU (compromised) or one of the other primary data sets, all of which pull from the same pool of shared and suspect data.

Your "argument" isn't an argument, it is an appeal to authority.

Better luck next time.
