IPCC: The Bernie Madoff of the Science Community

Today the British paper The Daily Mail has an exhaustive article on just how far the scientists at University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and then by extension the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) at the UN went to promote their fairy tale of the end of civilization as we know it now derisively referred to as Global Warming went.

Among some of the revelations revealed are these.
In the words of one, David Rind from the US space agency Nasa, it ‘looks like there were years around 1000AD that could have been just as warm’.
That is a time long before automobiles and factories.

In other cases they simply hid or stopped using data that did not fit their narrative. One such example is the use of the data obtained from tree rings. In 1961, when the data started showing a decline in temperature, they simply quit using it and hid the information in their flashy Powerpoint® slides.

The CRU and the IPCC did so much manipulation of the data that I no longer believe that any serious scientists can accept their conclusions, and by doing so they have discredited the entire scientific community.
This suggested that average temperatures had risen there by about two degrees Celsius. However, the raw data had been ‘adjusted’ in a series of abrupt upward steps by exactly the same amount: without the adjustment, the Darwin temperature record would have stayed level.

In 2007, McIntyre examined records across America. He found that between 1999 and 2007, the US equivalent of the Met Office had changed the way it adjusted old data.

The result was to make the Thirties seem cooler, and the years since 1990 much warmer. Previously, the warmest year since records began in America had been 1934.
Even in light of all this damning evidence and the continuing unraveling of this scientific hoax, the progressives all across the globe will continue to push their political agenda using this work of fiction as the justification.

UPDATE: 12/14/2009 Seems the CRU has now taken the data related to the Briffa Tree Rings off of their website. Can you say coverup boys and girls?
