re: #5 srjh

With five separate, independent investigations finding that the claims were rubbish, surely it’s time to put “climategate” to bed?


Again I say, Hah!

Let’s look at some of the comments from the net today:

From Revkin’s article:

Whitewash as expected.

What I find most disgusting is the blatant attempts to subvert the spirit and the letter of the FOI law were dismissed as ‘unfortunate’. That alone should have been grounds for termination of one or more of the people involved (especially the FOI officer at UEA who failed to live up to his responsibility).

I really have nothing but contempt for the scientific establishment now.

From the WSJ article:

MIKE MCATEE replied:

They obviously didn’t look at the IPCC. Its report, and proposed agenda, is so full of holes you could fly the space shuttle through it. A recent report on the IPCC from the Netherlands climate scientists points out eight fatal flaws in its program which were directly caused by conscious manipulation of the data.

Um, no MIKE, the Dutch report said just the opposite.

We’ve seen this before, of course, when it comes to evolution.

When a discovery or set of observations so challenges peoples’ world views that they can not accept the evidence all they have left to do is hide under the rock of denial.
