Climategate and the Inquiries

A large archive of emails and files from the Climate Research Unit in the UK was released on the internet in November 2009. The emails show a group of scientists manipulated, hid or misrepresented data and evidence in official reports. Five inquiries were commissioned to investigate. The inquiries failed to interview critics, cross-examine evidence, and investigate the key issues. This article summarizes the key issues and the inquiries.

Who needs a committee report to spot rank deception?

The ClimateGate emails show a group of climate scientists manipulating climate data, hiding data that did not support their cause, illegally avoiding Freedom of Information laws, and blocking scientific papers. A UK House of Commons committee, instead of protecting the public from fraud, declares Phil Jones "actions were in line with common practice in the climate science community".

Climate Gate - 2.0

It has happened. Again! A second instalment of incriminating correspondence files from the CRU/ East Anglia Hockey Team and their IPCC colleagues has just been leaked (Nov.22), (in)conveniently in time for the COP-17 Durban conference.

ClimateGate: 30 Years in the Making

Mohib Ebrahim has created the full timeline of ClimateGate, laying out the analysis, graphs, emails and history of the scandal. The scandal reveals: that scientists conspired to prevent publication of papers skeptical of AGW, and journals and editors that published such papers were punished; that they manipulated data to support the AGW theory and suppress data that does not support the theory; and that they conspired to prevent data from being made available to other researches.
