Computer Hacker Exposes Global Warming Hoax

The UK Telegraph has a fascinating story today.  Apparently a computer hacker broke into a University's computer system and released 61 megabytes of data onto the internet.  That includes confidential emails between AGW scientists, onto the internet.  This evidence suggests that global warming scientists have been involved in fraud to slant evidence in favor of their theories, destroy contrary evidence and punish dissenters in the scientific community.  In other words, those of us who have long believed that Anthropogenic (man made) Global Warming is a fraud were right all along.

 The UK Telegraph article says:
These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:
Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
The author of this article says the data shows the AGW proponents:
  • Manipulating evidence (to "prove" AGW)
  • Suppressing contrary evidence (deleting email discussions in that vein)
  • Slanting contrary evidence in order to invalidate it (the Medieval Warming Period)
  • Squeezing dissenting scientists out of the peer review process (removing dissenters from the discussion rather than refuting them)
If this data is true, it may finally drive a stake through the heart of the man made global warming scam.  However, don't expect the AGW controversy to die overnight.  The UK Telegraph author, James Delingpole, writes:
The world is currently cooling; electorates are increasingly reluctant to support eco-policies leading to more oppressive regulation, higher taxes and higher utility bills; the tide is turning against Al Gore’s Anthropogenic Global Warming theory. The so-called “sceptical” view is now also the majority view.
Unfortunately, we’ve a long, long way to go before the public mood (and scientific truth) is reflected by our policy makers. There are too many vested interests in AGW, with far too much to lose either in terms of reputation or money, for this to end without a bitter fight.
Delingpole misses one of the most obvious vested interests:  political power and "socialism through other means."  The most immediate implications of this disclosure is that Obama's Cap and Trade scheme and the Copenhagen Climate Treaty are proven unnecessary.

The article is titled Climategate:  the final nail in the coffin of "Anthropogenic Global Warming"?
