Hold Me Comrade

I’m cold

Climategate has already affected Russia. On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory. Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

…The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

This is the New Scientific Method: decide on the conclusion you want and then select the data that supports it, then declare “consensus” and that the science is settled.

And rake in that funding!

No wonder these guys get along so well with government bureaucrats and politicians.

    It used to be a joke among science students to say that if the theory and the data conflicted the obvious thing to do was to throw out the data and get some new data. Now we see prominent scientists, supported by millions in taxpayer funded grants, acting on that basis. These warmmongers have violated the basic ethics of science, not to mention committing what appears to be fraud.
