We should thus be grateful to the blogosphere for keeping up with the shameful story of manipulation of climate data emanating from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. And today, we owe a particular debt of gratitude to Wellington-based blogger Poneke. He has recently published a lengthy piece which is an absolute must-read. He begins thus:
- This is the longest and most important article I’ve yet written for this blog and I make no apology for its 4600 words — more also than in any newspaper article. As a journalist, I believe the Climategate emails have exposed one of the most significant news stories of the decade. As the mainstream news media has so far barely gone beyond giving those who wrote them and their supporters time and space to deny their undeniable contents, I present here an extensive journalistic account of what they actually say in the context of the dates and events in which they were written, with full links to all the emails.
Having now read all the Climategate emails, I can conclusively say they demonstrate a level of scientific chicanery of the most appalling kind that deserves the widest possible public exposure.
This is an outstanding piece of reporting by Poneke, and as much as he condemns those who have manipulated climate data, he rightly lambasts a lame and compliant media which still refuses to acknowledge climate change fraud. You don't need to look too far at posts on this blog to understand that we are Global Warming sceptics; it would seem that our scepticism is well-founded.
