Apparently Joe Lieberman did indeed decide to betray us all yesterday, voting for the Senate socialist medicine bill in violation of his word. Pretty weak actions, from a pretty weak man.
In the way of brighter information, though, and continuing with the topic of my previous post, I encountered another piece of rather interesting news this weekend. Specifically, some noble-hearted hacker decided to fight back against the eco-fascists. To help save the world from madness, this person infiltrated the network of a global warming research center. He then spread their files out over the internet for the world to see.
Resist or serve!
Hundreds of private e-mail messages and documents hacked from a computer server at a British university are causing a stir among global warming skeptics, who say they show that climate scientists conspired to overstate the case for a human influence on climate change.
From the Andrew Bolt Blog:
So the 1079 emails and 72 documents seem indeed evidence of a scandal involving most of the most prominent scientists pushing the man-made warming theory — a scandal that is one of the greatest in modern science. I’ve been adding some of the most astonishing in updates below — emails suggesting conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more. If it is as it now seems, never again will “peer review” be used to shout down s[k]eptics.
Here are just a few snippets from the leaked email messages. They’re kinda funny.
The other paper by MM is just garbage – as you knew. [Global Warming Skeptic] De Freitas again. Pielke is also losing all credibility as well by replying to the mad Finn as well – frequently as I see it. I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. K and I will keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is !
The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong.
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.
Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4? Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis. Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address. We will be getting Caspar to do likewise. I see that CA claim they discovered the 1945 problem in the Nature paper!!
All this cool hacking stuff is sort of like the Matrix! Fight the power.
