The poor Green Police are looking stupider than ever now that the global warming scientist from University of East Anglia, Professor Phil Jones, has come out with the admission that
1) he’s a terrible records keeper and has no idea where the original raw data is that he used for his analysis (the one that everyone including the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change relies upon to support their hysterical claims of anthropocentric global warming; the one based on the infamous hockey stick graph that supposedly closed the deal and ended the debate);
2) there has been NO global warming since 1995 ! and
3) it’s entirely possible that the Medieval Warming Period (when the Romans were growing grapes for wine in England) back between 800 and 1300 AD was warmer than anything we’re experiencing now, (ahem) , and may well have been global, they just don’t happen to have any paleoclimatic data from the southern hemisphere. (That’s because the southern hemisphere is mostly ocean and it’s difficult to measure what the ocean’s temp was thousands of years ago… ) In any case, the MWP was in NO way caused by anything man was doing at the time.
These admissions are huge, particularly coming from this individual. They entirely knock the legs out from under the whole idea of AGW (Anthropocentric Global Warming). But… are we hearing about it anywhere? I found a link on Drudge to an article in the UK’s Daily Mail. The same article Rush read from on his radio program today. I just did a quick check of CNN, ABC, MSNBC and CBS’s online news pages. Nada. (I did , however, learn that production of 24 will be suspended briefly while Keifer Sutherland has a minor, elective surgery to deal with a ruptured cyst on one of his kidneys… )
Only Fox News carried the story. And yet, it completely negates the need for cap and trade, for all these green initiatives, green cars, ethanol, wind generators, all the demonization of SUV’s and cars in general, compost regulations, light bulb regulations, carbon offsets, carbon footprints. The whole thing is a pipe dream. A hoax. Though a very lucrative hoax for some of the hoaxers.)
“… colleagues of Professor Jones said ‘his office is piled high with paper, fragments from over the years, tens of thousands of pieces of paper, and they suspect what happened was he took in the raw data to a central database and then let the pieces of paper go because he never realised that 20 years later he would be held to account over them’. “
Forget about the twenty year thing. What about normal scientific protocol where you’re supposed to have your data available for others to evaluate and confirm your conclusions? Something that should have been done long before twenty years had passed.
“Professor Jones admitted the lack of organisation in the system had contributed to his reluctance to share data with critics, which he regretted.
“Asked about whether he lost track of data, Professor Jones said: ‘There is some truth in that. We do have a trail of where the weather stations have come from but it’s probably not as good as it should be…
“‘There’s a continual updating of the dataset. Keeping track of everything is difficult. Some countries will do lots of checking on their data then issue improved data, so it can be very difficult.'”
And this is the kind of person whose conclusions are worthy of the entire nation destroying its economy, enslaving its citizens and spending millions of dollars to implement?

What a fantastic and factual summary about what is really go on here. Although this is not a political blog – I am sending this commentary onto my dad who enjoys clarity of thought from doctrinally sound Christians concerning the issues of the day in our country.
One would think the two feet of snow God placed on D.C.’s door step would have sent a clear message. They stopped working as the rest of America is trying to find work. But one is reminded that the fool keeps doing the same thing expecting different results – and unfortunately even the snowfall in the South (which we enjoyed in Georgia – yeah, miss the snow) – including Alabama and North Florida didn’t make them wince even once. Their staunch and blind arrogance is an amazing motivator.
In fact if lying is your basis it is not surprising that the so-called “experts,” now have spun the story to say that all of this snowfall is a result of global warming. It’s like trying to deal with a three year old caught with their hand in the cookie jar. They immediately take it out when you walk in and catch them but they still can’t hide the chocolate smeared on their face. Thank the Lord we are able to maintain our sense of humor – hah. We are watching the angelic conflict live!
Best wishes and blessings in your writing ventures.
Thanks for the comment Donna. Glad you saw fit to forward the piece on to your dad. As for the lying… I’m not totally convinced they’re lying. At least not all of them, and not about whether man is causing the earth to warm. Hmmm… this line of thought seems to have produced my next blog post.
Good post, Karen. My only reservation has to do with the alternate fuel part—not because of global warming but because we should be independent of other countries when it comes to the key source of energy.
If anything good is coming from this green movement, I think it is that we have finally taken some serious steps toward breaking the hold foreign countries have on the energy industry before it becomes stifling.
Anyway, I appreciate you reporting these facts. I wouldn’t have known them otherwise.
And yes, the green movement proponents are saying the snow is evidence of climate change. Read this in a newspaper editorial. The warmer ocean temps induce more precipitation and snow is precipitation. That’s the story, and I’m sure they’re sticking to it. 😆
Thanks for the comment, Becky. And I agree with you on the need to free ourselves from dependence on foreign oil. As I understand it on the alternate fuels, apparently European drivers are coming to the conclusion that ethanol is not the wonderful thing they thought it was going to be. It takes a lot of resources and cropland to produce for one thing. And the wind farms are not terribly efficient either. My vote is for nuclear power, and tapping into natural oil and gas reserves in places like Alaska.
