Even in these intellectually debauched times, is hard to credit the cynical and brazenly corrupt farce of the ‘investigations’ into the ‘Climategate’ email scandal centred around East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit. The UK inquiry,Show More Summary
Former head of research unit responds to criticism by arguing for necessity of assessing excerpts by independent reviews
By way of preamble, let me remind you where I stand on climate change. I think climate science… Climate change - Michael Mann - Climatic Research Unit hacking incident - Pennsylvania State University - Michael E. Mann
Last week, the Independent Climate Change Email Review panel headed by Sir Muir Russell released its report on the Climategate affair at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU). Reason's Ronald Bailey summarized the findings as follows: "All right, people. Move along. Show More Summary
I know this is already a bit of old news, but I am just returning from TAM8 (which was awesome, BTW) and am behind on my blogging. Recently the third of three independent reviews of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) e-mail scandal has been completed. All three reviews concluded that the CRU was not hiding, [...]
IS THAT A RHETORICAL QUESTION?.... The right's overheated reaction to the so-called "Climategate" story had exactly the desired effect -- major media outlets told the public that emails from Climatic Research Unit scientists put their data in doubt. As the...
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change has instructed all 831 researchers contributing to the organization's next round of assessments to "keep a distance from the media." Such was disseminated in a July 5 letter...Show More Summary
Last week, I wrote an article about Michael Mann being completely exonerated by the inquiry at Penn State, and, at the time, I said that Phil Jones and the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had been cleared by three inquiries. I got that wrong: at the time it was only two. Show More Summary
All right, next stop on the Climategate express: Earlier today, a British panel released the results of its third-party investigation into the scandal and… yup, it basically exonerated the scientists at the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. Show More Summary
The Independent Climate Change Email Review panel's report [pdf] is now out. The report explicitly does not focus on the scientific work of the climate researchers at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and associated...Show More Summary
Phil Jones tries to explain his "trick" to "hide the decline". It sounds like nonsense to me. Phil Jones is the former head of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. He stepped down in the wake of the Climategate revelations, including the bombshell email in which he describes using a "trick" to "hide the decline". Show More Summary
As part of its most comprehensive study of climate change to date, the National Research Council has issued three reports emphasizing why the United States should act now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop a national strategy to adapt to the inevitable impacts of climate change.
By Steve Goddard Guardian Photo The experts at East Anglia and CRU told us in 2000 that : (March, 2000) According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East … Continue reading →
The focus on the global temperature records that occurred in the aftermath of the theft of an e-mail archive from the UK's Climatic Research Unit revealed how something that seems so simple, like global temperatures, is actually incredibly complex. Show More Summary
Score yet another one for reality: a panel of six scientists have investigated the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit — the target of the so-called "climategate" — and has cleared them of "any deliberate scientific malpractice". Moreover, they found that while the scientists at the CRU could have been better organized and could [...]
Researchers have evaluated the spread of the invasive mosquitofish Gambusia holbrooki, which is native to the United States and lives in Mediterranean rivers in Spain and France. The scientists warn that climate change will extend the current distribution area of this and other invasive species to the north.
Guest post by Thomas Fuller, San Francisco Environmental Examiner Some background. 1. The Climatic Research Unit at East Anglia University has published science that was integral to the decision of the EU and the UK to immediately implement programs subsidizing the installation of green energy generation systems. 2. Those subsidies amounted to approximately $50 billion [...]
In February top global warming expert Professor Phil Jones, the former director of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), admitted that global warming was a fraud. He admitted: Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ had gone missing There had been no global warming since 1995 Warming periods have happened before – but [...]
