I can’t remember where I read it first, but I’ve read it a number of times – the huge kerfuffle over the faked data, awful code, corrupted databases and political machinations of the CRU East Anglia cabal of Anthropogenic Global Warming prophets should really be called Climaquiddick not Climategate.
Watergate and all the following “…gates” are driven largely by the legacy media. This time the legacy media is, to a large degree, ignoring the whole thing. Therefore, this should be given the suffix “…aquiddick” since it is much more like Teddy Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick episode where he left a woman to die so he could drink a few more martinis and get a nap before he reported that he’d left a woman trapped in a car, underwater in a place from which she could easily have been rescued had he been even slightly less a total twatwaffling douchenozzle coward. RIP.
Anywho, on to Climaquiddick.
Finally, forced by the release of emails and the now obvious fraud committed in the data CRU uses to push AGW – the CRU East Anglia is now going to release it’s data for public review.
Excuse me while I laugh.
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.
So, either they lied and have the data but refused to turn it over because it’s damaging to their theory, OR they did dump it because it was damaging to their theory and are really awful scientists who should be discredited thoroughly, fined, jailed and taught to say “You want fries with that?”
