Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming'? As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be "the greatest in modern science". These alleged emails supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory suggest: Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more. One of the alleged emails has a gentle gloat over the death in 2004 of John L Daly (one of the first climate change sceptics, founder of the Still Waiting For Greenhouse site), commenting: "In an odd way this is cheering news." But perhaps the most damaging revelations the scientific equivalent of the Telegraph's MPs' expenses scandal are those concerning the way Warmist scientists may variously have manipulated or suppressed evidence in order to support their cause. Here are a few tasters. Manipulation of evidence: Ive just completed Mikes Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keiths to hide the decline. Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up: The fact is that we cant account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we cant. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.
