A Credibility Meltdown for the World's Leading Climate Scientists


NewLiberty on the LvMI Forum shares a bevy of links covering the recent climate scandal that seems likely to become even bigger than the Yamal Controversy...








"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."

...as well as a torrent of the actual leaked emails and documents.

Elsewhere in the web, the heroic Bishop Hill provides us with an extensive collection of summaries of some of the more interesting "CRUgate" e-mails.

But LvMI Forum member Le Master has his own choice nugget to share. He enjoins us to particularly "check out the PDF in the documents folder. It's a five-page document titled The Rules of the Game. It seems to be like a primer for propagating the AGW message to the average subject of the UK. The document suggests that it is a precis of a longer document housed at the Web site of the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs."

Hopefully some readers here will follow Le Master's example and make the leaked emails and documents their weekend reading, and post what they find here or on the relevant forum thread. Many eyes make light work!

Let's give them something to talk about in Copenhagen.
