Re: “This is happening

Tsk. The great bulk of that wonderful "FOIA2009.zip" archive released to the 'Net in November 2009 consisted of computer programming code and data files which Prof. Jones and his colleagues at the C.R.U. had refused to release in response to requests uttered under the United Kingdom's Freedom of Information law. In fact, Prof. Jones et. al. were - in the wake of Climategate - determined to have been in criminal breach of that law. It was only that the unreasonably brief (18 months) statute of limitations had expired which prevented Prof. Jones from being arrested and charged for that violation.

That the e-mails confirmed a number of things long suspected of the global warming cabal - particularly their invidious co-option of the professional literature in their nominal discipline in order to prevent contrary evidence from being presented in peer-reviewed venues - is merely frosting on the cake.

What Climategate showed - to all but the religious True Believers in this enormous fraud - was that the global climate datasets had been deliberately corrupted and that the oh-so-sophisticated "Hockey Stick" computer climate models were utter garbage, ineptly compiled kludge designed to draw the desired curve even when random Brownian "red noise" numbers were fed into them.

As for the originator's bilge about "the consensus," permit me to draw upon the 2003 remarks of fellow physician Michael Crichton:

"Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus. There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period."
