The Dog Ate Global Warming

by Patrick J. Michaels - September 23rd, 2009 - National Review Online

Replication of experiments is welcomed by scientists so that their conclusions can be verified as credible. However the scientists whose work is the basis of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's claim of man caused global warming... will not share their data! Warwick Hughes became suspicious of the validity of the analysis by Phil Jones, one the two scientists who made the claims that appeared spurious when investigated.

Jones’s response to [this] fellow scientist attempting to replicate his work was, “We have 25 years or so invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”

Reread that statement, for it is breathtaking in its anti-scientific thrust. In fact, the entire purpose of replication is to “try and find something wrong.” The ultimate objective of science is to do things so well that, indeed, nothing is wrong.

It is this arrogance, coupled with the repeated insistence by the scientists who believe in global warming that if you dispute them you are an evil "denier", that is starting to unravel support for their global warming claims. The hockey stick program made famous by Al Gore has been proven to be a fraud. Now the data fed into the program is being challenged. And all you get is the now disproved lie that 90% of all scientists accept global warming as fact so please "shut up".

Why are these people so unwilling to share the data behind their claims? Why is the known fraud in the claims simply ignored? Why is the standard response to any questioning of global warming to slander and defame the scientists who ask the questions?

This article now reports on the incredible pretense by the global warming fanatics that the scientists who were supposed to put together the data have lost the data that proves their claims?

After all that has happened in this debate you would have to be incredibly gullible to believe this.
