The Crumbling Religion of the Man-Maders


The foundation of the man-maders religion just keeps on a-crumblin’. In yet more fallout from Climategate, Professor Phil Jones, one of the leading researchers at the center of this controversy, admitted that he had written some “pretty awful e-mails”.

In case you’re not familiar with Climategate and since the mainstream media has been suspiciously silent about it, it was revealed via intercepted e-mails that scientists conspired on how to avoid responding to freedom of information requests from those skeptical of global warming. They also discussed how to manipulate data from tree rings that reveals information about historical temperatures. In one of these e-mails, Professor Jones talked about manipulating the findings to hide a decrease in temperatures, instead of the increase that man-maders have been trumpeting.

The Institute of Physics provided information on this to a Science and Technology Committee inquiry, saying…

Unless the disclosed emails are proved to be forgeries or adaptations, worrying implications arise for the integrity of scientific research and for the credibility of the scientific method.

For his part, Jones still denies any wrongdoing and that no data was manipulated. He also continues to claim that scientific data on climate change still remains “robust”.
