Junk Science/Environmental Corruption 11-30

From My Husband - Today's Cap and Trade News

Basically they threw away the raw data in an attempt to hide the fact that their computer models were corrupt. Climate change data dumped Countries were basing their economic futures on these jokers. Thousands of industries developed products to sell based on their claims and it was all a lie?!? Disgraceful.

Nice. Climategate Document Database from PJTV/Pajamas Media And here.

'Botch after botch after botch'. Leaked 'climategate' documents show huge flaws in the backbone of climate change science

Copenhagen? More Like Carbonhagen!

Wow Visualizing the East Anglia Climate Research Unit Leaked Email Network

Document Reveals U.N.'s Goal of Becoming Rule-Maker in Global Environmental Talks Well, that explains a lot about the IPCC then.

No One Peer-Reviews Scientific Software Aren't scientists supposed to be all state-of-the-art and such. So why weren't coders a part of the peer-review process?

A Climate Scientist Who Engages Skeptics What? Like a priest who occasionally chats with a voodoo shaman? How condescending.

A comment on Warmergate - from Eduardo Zorita, an individual who contributed to the fourth IPCC report (and he's not somebody who believes that AGW is a hoax). Basically he says that...
I am also aware that in this thick atmosphere -and I am not speaking of greenhouse gases now- editors, reviewers and authors of alternative studies, analysis, interpretations,even based on the same data we have at our disposal, have been bullied and subtly blackmailed. In this atmosphere, Ph D students are often tempted to tweak their data so as to fit the 'politically correct picture'. Some, or many issues, about climate change are still not well known. Policy makers should be aware of the attempts to hide these uncertainties under a unified picture. I had the 'pleasure' to experience all this in my area of research.

More on Climategate
In my previous post on Climategate I blithely said that nothing in the climate science email dump surprised me much. Having waded more deeply over the weekend I take that back.

The closed-mindedness of these supposed men of science, their willingness to go to any lengths to defend a preconceived message, is surprising even to me. The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering. And, as Christopher Booker argues, this scandal is not at the margins of the politicised IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] process. It is not tangential to the policy prescriptions emanating from what David Henderson called the environmental policy milieu [subscription required]. It goes to the core of that process....
Remember that this is not an academic exercise. We contemplate outlays of trillions of dollars to fix this supposed problem. Can I read these emails and feel that the scientists involved deserve to be trusted? No, I cannot. These people are willing to subvert the very methods--notably, peer review--that underwrite the integrity of their discipline. Is this really business as usual in science these days? If it is, we should demand higher standards--at least whenever "the science" calls for a wholesale transformation of the world economy. And maybe some independent oversight to go along with the higher

HA! Lleaked emails won't harm UN climate body, says chairman. Rajendra Pachauri says there is 'virtually no possibility' of a few scientists biasing IPCC's advice, after UAE hacking breach

Taking the private jet to Copenhagen. Any celebrity flying the green flag needs glittering eco-credentials. But how do they justify the fleet of customised planes, the luxury homes and the posse of servants?
