Warming's 'Pentagon Papers' continues to unravel the fraud.
Charles Martin, writing at Pajamas Media has done an incredible job in sorting through the material from the CRU computers put online and is making sense of it. He says the material appears authentic (and to date no one has disputed its authenticity), "incendiary," and predicts they will have a seismic impact on the scientific community, shaking the foundations of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) and the reputations of a number of scientists who were the principle proponents of that theory.
Each of his conclusions is supported by the reference numbers of the online documents which support it. For example:
- The emails suggest the authors co-operated covertly to ensure that only papers favorable to CO2-forced AGW were published, and that editors and journals publishing contrary papers were punished. They also attempted to "discipline" scientists and journalists who published skeptical information.
See for example emails 1047388489, 1256765544, 1255352257, 1051190249, 1210367056, 1249503274, 1054756929, 1106322460 and 1132094873. Also see email 1139521913, in which the author discusses how the comments at RealClimate.org are moderated to prevent skeptical or critical comments from being published. RealClimate advertises itself as a scientific blog that attempts to present the "real case" for AGW.
This is a very important piece of work and if you care to understand why this matter is so important and what it's all about, you cannot do better than reading this piece.
