Hadley hacked: Roundup with updates and hundreds of comments

Hadley hacked: warmist conspiracy exposed? | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog
So the 1079 emails and 72 documents seem indeed evidence of a scandal involving most of the most prominent scientists pushing the man-made warming theory - a scandal that is one of the greatest in modern science. I’ve been adding some of the most astonishing in updates below - emails suggesting 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. If it is as it now seems, never again will “peer review” be used to shout down sceptics.

This is clearly not the work of some hacker, but of an insider who’s now blown the whistle.
Update: See and search the emails here.

Raw content of the emails available (in 10 to a page) to read here - hopefully have them online in a keyword searchable format later this evening.

I'm seriously enjoying this, it has brightened my whole day!

The documents within the archive, if proven to be authentic, would at best be embarrassing for many prominent climate researchers and at worst, damning.

I don't enjoy these types of things at all. Some of these people are doctoral level scientists. Outrageous. It seems the new trend in science for some is: I made a mistake, now, how can I manipulate the data to cover it up?. As a scientist, I am very disappointed in these people. At least some proof has now surfaced! Will it do any good in changing the view of the average person who believes these people? Doubtful.

There actually far more than 1,000 emails. The files are archived threads with extensive conversations. Roughly, there are at least 3,000 emails assuming just three exchanges per thread.

I love it! I knew somehow there would be a huge blowup in these peoples faces. It dissapoints me however, that so many people have been manipulated in believing the hyped up barage up crap that has been shoved in their faces...mainly, if not solely by the leftist Dems!

Follow the money!!!...Connect the dots. The "prestigious" scientists involved (as do others?) had something to gain...more than ego or notarity, I'll bet. ($$$$???)

I quit the Planetary Society in the 80's because of Sagan's bad science, with the political issues being argued in the magazine, not the science. When I saw this stuff creeping up in Global Warming, I remember what I was taught at MIT in Meteorology Classes, and wondered if they worked out the heat-transfer of state change of water in the models and if they had finally dealt with the "Dresden Effect". But they really don't care about science, observed evidence or scientific method. I can’t believe they want to govern with this trash. "Why spoil the beauty of the thing with the truth?" to paraphrase.

Some of the warming believers always condemn doubters as being on the payroll of fossil fuel companies and therefore unbelievable. One of the best bits to come out of today's release is this: "So far, the most interesting file I found in the "documents" directory is
pdj_grant_since1990.xls (Google preview, click)
which shows that since 1990, Phil Jones has collected staggering 13.7 million British pounds ($22.6 million) in grants."

I wonder if MSM will report this with true journalism or will they focus more on the hackers being thieves? I think the ladder. I think who ever hacked into the files should be rewarded simply because billions of $$$ have been stolen from the masses by this forgery of science backed by political aggendas. If, ofcorse all of this proves to be true.

The global warming house of cards continues to fall, not only were scientists skeptical of the global warming data as under audit it couldnt be reconciled now its shown to have been manipulated.

I'm not a climate specialist so I'm not qualified to analyze much of CRU's raw data and methods. But THIS comment, which I found in their scientific programming code after 2 minutes of searching, seems damning with regard to their methods:

; The calibrated (uncorrected) versions of all these data sets are used.
; However, the same adjustment is then applied to the corrected version of
; the grid Hugershoff data, so that both uncorrected and corrected versions
; are available with the appropriate low frequency variability. There is some
; ambiguity during the modern period here, however, because the corrected
; version has already been artificially adjusted to reproduce the largest
; scales of observed temperature over recent decades - so a new adjustment
; would be unwelcome. Therefore, the adjustment term is scaled back towards
; zero when being applied to the corrected data set, so that it is linearly
; interpolated from its 1950 value to zero at 1970 and kept at zero thereafter.

No conspiracy here. Just a major infingment of privacy.

Tom said...

How'd you read all those emails so quickly, Charlie?

Andreas Nicolet said...

Good question, Tom - how did you?

More interesting is what is not contained in the emails. There is no evidence of any worldwide conspiracy, no mention of George Soros nefariously funding climate research, no grand plan to ‘get rid of the MWP’ [MWP refers to “Medieval Warm Period”), no admission that global warming is a hoax, no evidence of the falsifying of data, and no ‘marching orders’ from our socialist/communist/vegetarian overlords.

Its simply outrageous that anyone would hack peoples accounts just for people to come up with more conspiracies.

Wake up people. You have all been systematically brainwashed. Yes there are conspiracies---many of them and many for malevolent purposes. The word conspiracy has been made to conotate some type of mental illness. Just study one subject---not just read one book on this subject. Really study history. Conspiracy rules. You might find life once more interesting when you actually research things rather than read propoganda. "Source material"--can you remember what that means?
