    The trustworthiness of the scientific community's global warming data pool is being called into question as the scandal over doctored data continues to unfold.

    The latest revelation came on Sunday with the publication of a report by The Sunday Times of London that scientists at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in the United Kingdom confessed to throwing out most of the raw temperature data on which the theory of global warming is founded.

    The loss of the data prevents other scientists from checking it to determine whether, in fact, there has been a long-term rise in global temperatures during the past century and a half.

    "They are making scientific progress more difficult now," says Willie Soon, a physicist, astronomer and climate researcher at the solar and stellar physics division of the Harvard University-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "This is a shameful, dark day for science," he said in an interview with FoxNews.com.

    Soon also suggested that there has been systemic suppression of dissenting opinion among scientists in the climate change community, ranging from social snubs to e-mail stalking and even threats of harm.

    The common sense thinkers knew this had to be going on from the start. The cult had an agenda and the non thinkers that drank the Kool-Aid went a long with it, open eyed. Several on this board are right in the mix with the cult religion.

    Every honest scientist who has had contact with IPCC, CRU, NCAR and/or Penn State should have smoke blowing out their ears right about now.

    Scientific progress will not be more difficult - the results and explaining them to the public will....and that was exactly what all the paid media deniers, large oil companies, oil barons and partisan hacks want. Although some in the public are buying the media inuendo the majority of the public still trusts that when a vast majority of the worlds scientists generally agree that man-made climate change is a reality it is.

    So a vast majority in agreement is the make-or-break reasoning on whether AGW is real or not? :lol:

    Dear Diary,

    So glad I learned so much from Al Gore!

    I just donated all my winter clothes and boots to charity, and
    Stocked up on pith helmets and sandals at Banana Republic.

    Zoom, please don't clutter up Canuck (our troll from the north) with all these facts. It just confuses him, and he gets more things mixed up in that head of his, it just perpetuates the problem.
