The top scientists behind the global-warming hysteria have been exposed by an anonymous hacker as data-fudgers and would-be-muzzlers of dissent.
In what can only be called a mind-blowing development, an unnamed whistleblower hacked the Hadley Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, and released a slew of emails and other documents written by some of the climate-change glitterati, including UEA Professor Phil Jones, who has admitted that the documents are the real deal (Essex County, NJ, Examiner – cousin of the DC Examiner).
Among the things exposed by the hacker is “Mike’s Nature Trick” – essentially garfting different data sets together in order to “hide the decline” that would have blown a gaping hole in the global-warming theory (Climate Audit, it will take a while for the link, but it’s worth it!).
There are also emails about trying to get skeptical colleagues fired (Air Vent), changing the rules of reviewing papers to suppress different points of view (Air Vent again), and even cheering the death of a skeptic (What’s Up with That).
There are literally hundreds of documents, and I myself waited to comment on this until I saw that the Essex Examiner picked it up. Now that Professor Jones himself has admitted that the docs are real, this could turn out to be global warming alarmism’s Worst Day Ever.
