More Evidence CRU Has Raw Temp Data & It Shows No AGW

There is another example out of raw temp measurement data not matching the CRU/IPCC alarmist’s graphs showing dramatic recent increases and much cooler periods prior to 1960. This time the hard evidence comes from Norway, as noted at WUWT. Graphically we see another case of raw temp data – which looks fairly benign: Now looking […]

Government Rationed Health Care Kills

The United Kingdom hosts the grande dame of government rationed health care (a.k.a., the ‘public option’). It is a broken down system which most Americans would denounce if they had to give up American health care and go with the UK’s National Health Service. Because the system is run by bean counting bureaucrats who decide […]

CRU’s Jones Supposedly Lost Data Used In 2008

One other aspect of the data I was analyzing in the long post below is the fact it uses a CRU generated comparison of a 2008 temp run (b) with a 2005 run – all captured in a pdf file made in July of this year. One has to wonder how CRU was able to […]

CRU Raw Temp Data Shows No Significant Warming Over Most Of The World

Bottom Line – Using two back-of-the-envelope tests for significance against the CRU global temperature data I have discovered: 75% of the globe has not seen significant peak warming or cooling changes between the period prior to 1960 and the 2000’s (significance being a rise above 0.5°C threshold, which is well within the CRU’s own stated […]

Colleague Of Mann, Jones, et al Knew They Were Faking AGW

I knew the AGW cult would crack open under serious scrutiny, but this is stunning even to me: Nothing about the revelations surprises me. I have maintained email correspondence with most of these scientists for many years, and I know several personally. I long ago realized that they were faking the whole exercise. When you […]

Oh, The Horrors Of Climate Change!

Now I am convinced we need to spend trillions of dollars on CO2: Global warming is giving French vintners a new potential headache: In a few years, champagne could be going head-to-head with British bubbly. A leading organization in France’s fabled wine industry sounded the alarm Friday about the ill-effects of rising temperatures on the […]

CRU Hack Probably Inside Job

I have been of the opinion the ‘hackers’ at CRU were insiders fed up with the direction of CRU. There are many candidates seen in the emails who were trying to do the right thing (fix code, address outside comments, produce a better conclusion) who would seem to be great candidates. The CRU Climategate data […]

University Of East Anlgia Investigates Its Own CRU

Well, this should be interesting, if possibly useless: But a spokesperson said information about the investigation into the hack at UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) would be made public very soon. Scientists will be scrutinising the choice of chair and the terms of reference. One senior climate scientist told me that the chair would have […]

CRU Knew Of “Upside Down Mann”

If peer review was so great with AGW then the mistake Michael Mann made in his chronology, noted my Steve McIntyre, would have been corrected. It has not been, according to WUWT and the review of Mann’s latest AGW report.  What is really mind boggling is that the CRU emails clearly show the alarmists agreed […]
