    The Russians are accusing the British of modifying Russian datasets...it will be interesting to see where this leads.

    And who modified the Japanese data sets, the American data sets, the Chinese data sets, the Canadian data sets ......... and so on. They all show the same thing. A rapid warming since 1850, with major effects in the Arctic in the last decade.

    Debunking Misinformation About Stolen Climate Emails « Climate Progress

    This is reposted from the Union of Concerned Scientists Global Warming Blog. Another good, detailed debunking can be found at the Pew Center for Global Climate Change.

    The manufactured controversy over emails stolen from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit has generated a lot more heat than light over the past two weeks. Experts at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) have concluded that while the emails “do raise some valid concerns about scientific integrity, they do not indicate that climate data and research have been compromised.”

    UCS’s analysis of the emails and the debate surrounding them aims to correct popular misconceptions about what the emails say, put them in scientific context and explain the importance of scientific integrity.

    Select Committee Staff Analysis debunks stolen climate email myths « Climate Progress

    Select Committee Staff Analysis debunks stolen climate email myths
    Earth "CSI's" -- Climate Science Investigators -- Have Publicly Proven Global Warming is Unequivocal
    December 12, 2009
    “Global warming has been proven real beyond any reasonable doubt,” said Chairman Markey. “Unless, of course, that last remaining doubt is completely manufactured by the defenders of the fossil fuel status quo. That is the case with these stolen climate emails.”

    That is from a news release on the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming website.

    A new analysis debunks two of the principal myths generated by the manufactured scandal surrounding stolen climate science emails from the University of East Anglia. The staff analysis, written by the majority staff to Chairman Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, explains how two of the key phrases used by climate deniers to trumpet their views have previously been explained in publicly-available, peer-reviewed scientific literature.

    Well, okay, if a politician said it, it must be true. After all, they were right about ethanol.
