Granted, the hackers will be brought to justice - one day - but the worst of the worst or, the best of the best will come shortly. There are three very important posts linked at Memeorandum...
[...] Within hours, a senior complaints officer in the ICO wrote back by email: "I have started to examine the issues that you have raised in your letter and I am currently liaising with colleagues in our Enforcement and Data Protection teams as to what steps to take next."
The official also promised to investigate other universities linked to the CRU, which is one of the world's leading authorities on temperature levels and has helped to prove that man-made global warming not only exists but will have catastrophic consequences if not tackled urgently. Mr Holland is convinced the threat has been greatly exaggerated.
In one email dated May 28, 2008, one academic writes to a colleague having received Mr Holland's request: "Oh MAN! Will this crap ever end??"
Mr Holland, who graduated with an external degree in electrical engineering from London University in 1966 before going on to run his own businesses, told The Sunday Telegraph: "It's like David versus Goliath. Thanks to these leaked emails a lot of little people can begin to make some impact on this monolithic entity that is the climate change lobby."
He added: "These guys called climate scientists have not done any more physics or chemistry than I did. A lifetime in engineering gives you a very good antenna. It also cures people of any self belief they cannot be wrong. You clear up a lot of messes during a lifetime in engineering. I could be wrong on global warming – I know that – but the guys on the other side don't believe they can ever be wrong." [...]
Will this crap ever end? Yes, it will. As soon as the frauds are thrown behind bars and this idiotic global warming "crap" is placed in the dumper where it all belongs. This will kill the Kyoto treaty. This will kill Cap and Tax, I mean Trade. This will kill Al Gore and none can be better at the moment.
SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.
It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.
The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation.
The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building. [...]
Yeah. We believe that. Dumping raw material that is essential to their tasks because of a new building? Oh, I believe that one.
[...] The admission follows the leaking of a thousand private emails sent and received by Professor Phil Jones, the CRU’s director. In them he discusses thwarting climate sceptics seeking access to such data.
In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.” [...]
Homogenized? HOMENGENIZED? Oh, please. Stop with the PC garbage, skippy.
A week after my colleague James Delingpole, on his Telegraph blog, coined the term "Climategate" to describe the scandal revealed by the leaked emails from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit, Google was showing that the word now appears across the internet more than nine million times. But in all these acres of electronic coverage, one hugely relevant point about these thousands of documents has largely been missed.
The reason why even the Guardian's George Monbiot has expressed total shock and dismay at the picture revealed by the documents is that their authors are not just any old bunch of academics. Their importance cannot be overestimated, What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). [...]
Climaquiddick. Smart terminology. Sounds "Rather" like a Kennedy I heard of one time. Yes?
CRU Tossed Raw Data: Global Warming Science Is Dead: yes, it is. Prosecutions Threatened In Climate Conspiracy: someone isn't messing around here. ClimateGate: CRU Agrees To Publish All The Data. That They Haven’t Thrown Away: you mean someone threw something out? Like the facts of the fraud? Media Inventory: ClimateGate Reporters vs. Propagandists: HAHA! I wonder when the alleged Obamedia will beging to "uncover" the well-known FRAUDS of the aleged global warming unscience.
I have been covering this at least since the year 2000 and I am very well pleased that the facts are now out - Global Warming is........
