Russians bomb CRU and climate conference with "inconvenient truths:" Claim CRU Falsified Data Reported from Russian Meterological Stations

Paging Rosemary Woods. Paging Rosemary Woods. We seem to have some gaps in this record.

...On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country's territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

On the whole, climatologists use the incomplete findings of meteorological stations far more often than those providing complete observations.

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations...

Bomb damage assessment indicates the target has been severely damaged.

Russia is a kinda large place. Excluding 40% of the territory might leave some ummm...I'll be charitable here..."gaps in understanding". Excluding data that doesn't fit the narrative, widens such gaps into gaping chasms.

Here's what I propose as a "value added" statistical compensation for this "minor error". Lets just exclude 40% temp readings from around the equator and re-average the whole lot. Pretty simple, eh? OK, I admit that scheme is completely ridiculous, but its a solid B+ effort, right?

Edit [ace]: I was just putting this up and saw PA did it. I added the skull and also the subhed, because I thought it was important to put the Russians' claims right up in the headline.
