From The Telegraph:

The reason why even the Guardian‘s George Monbiot has expressed total shock and dismay at the picture revealed by the documents is that their authors are not just any old bunch of academics. Their importance cannot be overestimated, What we are looking at here is the small group of scientists who have for years been more influential in driving the worldwide alarm over global warming than any others, not least through the role they play at the heart of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).


Even more shocking is the level of deception that these key people involved themselves with in pursuit of their specified political goal:

What is tragically evident from the Harry Read Me file is the picture it gives of the CRU scientists hopelessly at sea with the complex computer programmes they had devised to contort their data in the approved direction, more than once expressing their own desperation at how difficult it was to get the desired results.

The third shocking revelation of these documents is the ruthless way in which these academics have been determined to silence any expert questioning of the findings they have arrived at by such dubious methods – not just by refusing to disclose their basic data but by discrediting and freezing out any scientific journal which dares to publish their critics’ work. It seems they are prepared to stop at nothing to stifle scientific debate in this way, not least by ensuring that no dissenting research should find its way into the pages of IPCC reports.

Even more disturbing is the similarity between this story and the story that we all saw, out of New Zealand a couple of days ago, where the activity there was quite similarly flawed, and fabricated. it goes directly to a pattern which we have been alluding to here at BitsBlog the since we came online back in 2000.

And now we find, that the scientists at east anglia have admitted throwing away a good deal of their raw temperature date on which their predictions of global annihilation if we didn’t spend billions of dollars following their political agenda, were based. Which means that we are down to  no chance whatsoever that the data can be analyzed by scientists untainted by the global warming religion.  Rather convenient, that.

Given the lack cooperation, both historically and currently, of the so called “science community” does anybody really think we’re going to get a better indication of the level of deception that we’ve been operating under with these people for so long, than the internal documents recently leaked?

And I’m sure, that I’m going to see at least one comment wondering whether not the emails that were publicized, were forged, if I don’t address the question, thus:

If those emails were forged in those leaked documents, does anybody really suppose that the denials wouldn’t have been forthcoming by now?

The fact is, we were lied to.  That was proven by their own words .
