Hacked Emails Reveal: "Scientists" Faking Data to Establish Global Warming They Know Isn't There
And Conspiring to Delete Emails They're Supposed to Retain for FOIA Purposes

[PA:I bumped this cuz its important and annoys the crap out of Charles Johnson]
One of the biggest stories I've ever had the pleasure to link.

Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm,

Once Tim’s got a diagram here we’ll send that either later today or first thing tomorrow. I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd [sic] from1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline. Mike’s series got the annual land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999 for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for 1999 with data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998.

Thanks for the comments, Ray.

Cheers, Phil

Prof. Phil Jones

Climatic Research Unit

Emphases added. Please read the whole thing.

This seems Rosetta Stone-ish to me.

On the level of human psychology, scientific arguments aren't really exciting. To scientists they are. To political hawks they are. (When such science is hyperpoliticized, as it is here.)

But most people don't find this interesting.

What they do find interesting -- and by "interesting" I mean provoking an elemental human emotional response -- is deception, conspiracy, arrogance, and other forms of bad human behavior.

Which is why Michael Crichton didn't write a dry scientific book about the cult of global warming. He wrote a fictive thriller, filled with... deception, conspiracy, arrogance, and other forms of bad human behavior.

This, I think, will have legs.

Not a Repost... A reassertion.

Damn. I'm just so used to being late I always assume the site is late, and I never consider the possibility that, say, Gabe already covered this.

I'm not embarrassed about this one at all. Well... not that embarrassed. I'm glad Gabe got to it early. I don't care if this is the third post on this. This is frickin' huge, man.

I want these emails, man. I need this file.

More: andycanuck tells me to check Adnrew Bolt and Tim Blair.

I've been reading Going Rogue to review it but now I'm thinking I need to read emails.

Nah, I'll get to Palin's book, too. But damn. This is awesome.

From Blair:

UPDATE VIII. The BBC reports on the scandal. It’s all about the hacking. Incidentally, the correct name of this place is “University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit” or “CRU”. Nothing to do with Hadley. (Via reader Thin & British)

As I have pointed out ad nauseam: When a leak hurts the right, the story is about the content of the leak.

When a leak hurts the left, the content of the leak is ignored, and the story is about the nefarious and criminal evil-doing that produced the leak, and how awful that is, and oh, look, here's an important story about how tough large-breasted women have it when they attempt jogging or gymnastics. Let's talk about that.

Not this time, boys. Not this time.

The File: At MegaUpload, thanks to Peaches.

This is the most bonerific file I've ever downloaded from MegaUpload, and if you've used MegaUpload for purposes other than downloading hacked climate-warming fraud emails, you know that's saying something.

Conspiracy: Scan down to Update 3 and further.

The problem isn't merely that they're manipulating data -- they also seem to be colluding and conspiring to destroy emails which would reveal this fact.

And those emails are themselves discoverable through FOIA requests.

Is this illegal? It would seem it has to be illegal -- or else FOIA has no purpose.

Great Comment:DaveS. recaps. This is deadly stuff.
