The state of ClimateGate today, Mar 16 2010. [krakatoa]

Big news of the day:

- Wild egghead on egghead action not seen since the legendary slipstick-assisted debaucheries of the 50s.

RIP -- This episode is brought to you in loving memory of Peter Graves. Skeptics have undertaken their own "Mission: Impossible" for the past several decades, and according to at least one Climate Sciencytist, one of the AGW Skeptics biggest names might just be a bad-ass super-spy.

(after the break...)

TBR reports one prominent Aussie Climate sciencytist's protests that the money & effort of CERN are wasted, and would be better spent on more climate science.

Among his proclamations he:

  • ridiculed the scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider, saying money would be better spent by climate scientists
  • argued that for propaganda purposes the media should hype-up individual weather events - such as floods in Mozambique - as proof of climate change
  • claimed Hurricane Katrina was clearly caused by climate change
  • claimed a conspiracy of white, Anglo Celtic elderly males was behind the skeptic movement
  • with NZ government social scientist Karen Cronin advocated researching how to foment enough anger in the public that governments who refused to take climate action could be "pushed out of the way" in a political upheaval

WUWT reports the UK Institute of Physics submission to the Parliament criticizing the CRU scientists has created dissent within the IOP's ranks.

Internal politics forces that organization to then release a statement making it clear that it "believes" in man-made climate change, and only intended to criticize some of the practices of the climate scientists at CRU.

I can't help but think a member of a hard science who espouses "belief" in a not-so-hard one is a pretty damning, if unintentional, backhand swipe at the less rigorous field.

From Andrew Bolt, the story of a Climate Sciencytist applying the same standards and thought processes used in predicting all sorts of doomsday scenarios brought about by an excess of plant food * to make a determination about the identity of the CRU email hackery.

Extreme loose shit resulted:

So, to sum up, McIntyre organised the campaign which led to the creation of the file, obtained information from the CRU file system by means he declined to reveal, received the stolen emails shortly after the theft and made dishonest and defamatory use of the stolen information. Whether or not he was directly involved in the theft, or merely created the opportunity and benefited from the proceeds is impossible to determine, and essentially irrelevant.

Quiggin down under has no evidence, nor even a bad-ass rifle, but that doesn't stop him from firing long-range and indiscriminate shots at both the Scienctific Method, and super-spy Steven McIntyre.

* And am I the only one that is extremely disappointed there have been no predictions yet of giant, mobile, man-eating flora?

In the UK, Government sponsored AGW Nursery Rhyme adverts have been banned due to excess, hmm, what's the word? Oh. Lying.
