Anyone still on the fence about the questionable validity of global warming should find of interest 500 new emails released publicly, exchanged among some of the top climate scientists in the movement, an event that is coming to be referred to as ClimateGate 2.0.
The overwhelming themes of the emails are that the scientists involved are more interested in concealing the underlying data they rely on, rather than transparency; that they view global warming as a political movement rather than unbiased scientific inquiry; and that the underlying science involved in the conclusions reached is weak, and depends upon a deliberate manipulation of the facts and data involved.
Some of the more scientifically damning emails were written by Peter Thorne, who will of course now be made a pariah by the movement at large, which will claim he was never “part of them.” Anyway, here’s a selection from emails attributed to Thorne:
“Observations do not show rising temperatures throughout the tropical troposphere unless you accept one single study and approach and discount a wealth of others. This is just downright dangerous. We need to communicate the uncertainty and be honest …I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run.”
Maybe some of these conspiratorial global warming scientists can get jobs from Algore when he invents Internet 4.0 and starts selling Earth In the Balance dashboard products.
