How the global warming industry is based on one big lie...

...the story behind yesterday's post has reinforced the belief that fraud and deception are behind the global warming scare. The drama has been taken up worldwide by the MSM...here's James Delingpole from the UK Telegraph...

...For the growing band of AGW “Sceptics” the following story is dynamite. And for those who do believe in Al Gore’s highly profitable myth about “Man-Made Global Warming”, it will no doubt feel as comfortable as the rectally inserted suicide bomb that put paid to an Al Qaeda operative earlier this week. (F***ing terrorists with their bum blasts...see this post...) Now read on....Those of you who saw An Inconvenient Truth may remember, if you weren’t asleep by that stage, the key scene where big green Al deploys his terrifying graph to show how totally screwed we all are by man-made global warming. This graph - known as the Hockey Stick Curve - purports to show rising global temperatures through the ages. In the part representing the late twentieth century it shoots up almost vertically. To emphasise his point that this is serious and that if we don’t act NOW we’re doomed, Al Gore - wearing a wry smile which says: “Sure folks, this is kinda funny. But don’t forget how serious it is too” - climbs on to a mini-lift in order to be able to reach the top of the chart. Cue consensual gasps from his parti pris audience.
Except that the graph - devised in 1998 by a US climatologist called Dr Michael Mann - is
based on a huge lie, as Sceptics have been saying for quite some time. The first thing they noticed is that this “Hockey Stick” (based on tree ring data, one of the most accurate ways of recording how climate changes over the centuries) is that it seemed completely to omit the Medieval Warming Period...the Met Office, its Hadley Centre in Exeter and the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at University of East Anglia are among the primary drivers of global climate change alarmism. Their data has formed the basis for the IPCC’s “we’re all doomed” reports; their scientists - among them Professor Phil Jones and tree ring expert Professor Keith Briffa (left) have been doughty supporters of Mann’s Hockey Stick theory and of the computer models showing inexorably rising temperatures.
Hence their misleading predictions of that “barbecue summer” we never had. As Booker says: “Part of the reason why the Met Office has made such a mess of its forecasts for Britain is that they are based on the same models which failed to predict the declining trend in world temperatures since 2001...We “Global Warming Deniers” are often accused of ignoring the weight of scientific opinion. Well if the “science” on which they base their theories is as shoddy as Mann’s Hockey Stick, is it any wonder we think they’re talking cobblers?...
more here ...and here ...and here... and a layman's guide to the whole sorry saga, from the indefatigable Bishop Hill...

...and to close from Jennifer Marohasy...This week’s claims by Steve McInyre that scientists associated with the UK Meteorology Bureau have been less than diligent are serious and suggest some of the most defended building blocks of the case for anthropogenic global warming are based on the indefensible when the methodology is laid bare...It is indeed time leading scientists at the Climate Research Centre associated with the UK Meteorological Bureau explain how Mr McIntyre is in error or resign.

PS Dr Briffa replies...Due to illness, Keith [Briffa] is currently away. He will not be able to respond to emails for some time. He is not currently accepting invitations to review papers or proposals...

...and this apparently is no mere excuse. The sceptical community wish Dr Briffa a speedy recovery from his kidney disease and look forward to continued debate re all of the above...

don't want to know the truth, you fucking wanker. My livelihood is based on carbon footprints, and you'll destroy it. I'll end up sniffing low carbon groins. Fuck the truth.

Or is that Al (five finger) Gore ?

Fuck the pair of you. The earth is flat and the sun goes round it. In the meantime, until people believe something else, there's money in carbon. You two should be plants so that you could breathe easier.
