It Was All a Lie: Climategate Scientist Admits There Is No Global Warming

Top Climate Scientist Admits Man-made Global Warming Is a Farce–

* Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes

Finally, one of the chief scientists at the center of the “Climategate” scandal admitted this weekend that there has been no significant global warming in the last 15 years.
The Daily Mail Online reported:

The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.

Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.

Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.

The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.

The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change and the orthodoxy that recent rises in temperature are largely man-made.

More… The U.N. panel of climate experts overstated how much of the Netherlands is below sea level, according to a preliminary report on Saturday.

    “The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change”

    Not “flaws”, but “fraud”

  • lmao, “the admissions will be seized upon” . . . um, yes. This is unbiased journalism at its finest: here’s the proof that there’s no global warming . . . just watch those loony skeptics use this to support (um) that there is no global warming.

    Nuts. All of them.

    I want to see all legislation on global warming rescinded…..NOW…

    This will have little to no effect on the True Believers. The science is settled, and everyone knows that settled science is never unsettled.

    They should make a documentary of all this and call it “Men Who Stare at Thermometers”. Start off with Al Gore showing how the thermometer in his office was 65 degrees last summer and now is 85 degrees this winter. And if that trend continues all the ice in his fridge will melt by the year 2015. Who needs more proof than that?

    No wonder the con-artist jones was contemplating suicide. Why anyone still refers to him as a “professor” is beyond me. “Lost” the data?!! I’ll buy you a shotgun and ammo, “professor.” Don’t bother looking for a sympathy card.

    Leave a note, so that when you’re finished using the gun, it can be forwarded for use by the liars at the world wildlife federation, the liar algore, the lying president of green peace, the lying pukes at the u.n., and the liars at the dnc. May you all choose to do the right and honorable thing, for once.

  • Bill Mitchell

    And yet Obama still claims that preventing catastrophic global warming should be a centerpiece of his administration.

    This man lives in an alternative universe.

    No wonder they wouldn’t debate anyone on this bullsh*t. Has anyone else noticed that it seems NO ONE in the MSM is even remotely interested in interviewing Al Gore about this?

    Why should they be when Sarah Palin writing a few words on her hand can be front-page news for a week?

  • Robb76

    Dang. Wouldn’t it be just great seeing Algore do the perp walk?

    And yet, barry continues to push his radical climate agenda–and EPA atrocities–as if all of these “warming” lies had not been exposed.

    Yet another failed socialist attempt to steal from the people. Remember the three motivations of man.

    The global warming hysteria has always been a hoax to bring about redistribution of the wealth. Bad Bad USA gives money to Good Good third world countries as “compensation” for polluting the atmosphere. As if the third world countries would spend it on solar panels. They would use it to prop up their dictatorships, further weaken the American dollar, and make America “equal” to the banana republics.

  • jonyjoe101

    hopefully this put’s an end to that “fat slob” Gore delusions of being a billionaire.

    It’s been more like a global freezing lately, we humans were design to live in the cold. Just do what out ancestors did, wear a fur coat and we are good to go.

    They always call Bush a Liar, but whose the liar now?

  • kansas

    #10″And yet Obama still claims that preventing catastrophic global warming should be a centerpiece of his administration.”

    Good move really, because at the end of 4 years he will be able to point out how successful that was. Brilliant. Of course he prevented something that never existed, but WTF?

  • Taqiyyotomist

    What I posted at Ed Driscoll’s on this “coming clean” act:

    “If you read the Jones interview closely, you’ll realize that he is coming clean in a Clinton/Jesse Jackson/Monica sort of way, only to rehab the image of AGW.

    “See, we’re opening up now, we admit past mistakes, and AGW is still true. We might not be doomed. On the other side of the coin, we may still be doomed, so give us more grant money because we desparately need to do more research on the matter…moreso now that ever. Now that it has come to light that our data was all phony, we need a few trillion more dollars and a few more decades so we can do it again, only this time we’ll do it right. Just give us the grants.”

    AGW is not dead by a long shot. The American MSM is pushing back harder than ever on this, aided by the Experts in junk science whose paychecks depend on this scam. The word “redoubled” comes to mind when thinking about their efforts these last couple of months. Scientists in every single legitimate “-ology” and even some that were just made up are dependent on this scam. They gotta eat, too, you know! (…and travel the world all year, and live in lavish luxury on our dime…)”

  • Andreas K.

    Funny how the data was suddenly “lost”.

    Maybe because there was never any data?

    A professor would usually make sure that such important data would be safe and secure, no matter how good his organisational skills are.

    I guess he actually lost the original data and then just made up stuff.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    It’s not collapsing.

    What they’re saying is, since is has come to light that the data was manipulated, false, and even phony, that we have to do it all again, because this is so important that we get it right, because the lives of future generations are at stake, so give us more money, NOW.

    It’s not collapsing, only regrouping and rehabbing.

    Consider it a Hudna.

    gullibility – The quality of readily believing information, truthful or otherwise, usually to an absurd extent

    I think this describes the average conservative lately. Which is why next year there will most likely be a couple dozen new “Republicans” in the senate, financed by Soros and MoveOn.

    We didn’t beat Communism in the 80’s.
    Global Warming is not dead.
    John McCain wanted Obama to win from the get-go.
    He wasn’t the only one who ran who had this goal.
    Ashley Todd was a double-moby, formerly a Paulian, not really a supporter of McCain, and did what she did to make the Rs look racist.

    And the naivite train rolls right on….won’t get fooled again? Don’t be so sure. The deceptions in the next cycle of elections will be even thicker.

    Entryism is the game.

  • Scott

    Ann Althouse has a great takedown on this. She wonders why only skeptics will seize on this. Wouldn’t anybody interested in the scientific method be skeptical if the data can’t be relied on?

    Doesn’t it take a leap of faith to continue to be a believer when the data can’t be relied on, making this whole movement closer to a religion than science?

  • Jane

    Taqiyyotomist: Well said! I’m happy to see some right-minded people as radical as myself.

  • Jane

    Scott: Because it’s a religion now. That’s exactly what Mikhail Gorbachev set Global Warming up to be, a religion.

    Heard that the manbearpig was coming here to CA. this week. I believe to have a meet and greet with San Fran Nan. I can’t believe he is going to show his face. The price to attend is ten bucks. He sure has discounted on his fees.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Thanks, Jane.

    I know without a doubt that the of the four simple statements I wrote under the word “Here”, most if not all of them will be considered by even most conservatives to be wacky nutty loony crazy-talk.

    I don’t care.

    Thing is, I’m not a conspiracy theorist, in the sense that I’m not one of those folks who thinks “I’m the one who’s got it all figured out.” I don’t pay any heed to the Coast to Coast AM crowd, the tinfoil black heli crowd, the Illuminatus/Bildeberger/UFOs/pyramids/Masons crowd, any of that.

    There are just a few things that I can see plain as day that most on my side seem blind to.

    Like entryism, or Democrats/progressives entering races and running as Republicans and tea-party candidates, or Democrats/progressives martyring themselves politically like Ashley Todd or Ron Paul, to make Republicans more repulsive to Americans.

    Breitbart’s “Big” sites are absolutely CRAWLING with Mobies (killgores?), and the moderators, if any, either don’t care, or are so naive that they think it’s just wacky righties.

    To this day, folks still think McCain wasn’t in it to lose it, despite that any rational mind could see that he did everything but put an Obama/Biden sticker on his damn podium. The only thing we can be thankful for is that he was foolish enough (from the Dem POV) to choose Palin (or have Palin chosen for him by someone) for his running-mate. But the man not only praised Obama every time he mentioned his name, but he refused to speak about Obama’s past, his associations, his leaders, his parents, his mentors, his ideas, his radicalism, or anything at all that could possibly have hurt the candidacy.

    I appear to be the only person on the planet to believe this cockamamie nonsense, though. Oh, well. Guess I’m nuts. Pleasedtameecha.

    These are times of immense, deep, multilayered deception.

    Triumphant headlines all over the right-o-sphere today: MOONBATS RETREATING!


    Never reading the interview, or very, very selectively reading the interview, one might be able to stretch the definition of “retreat” far enough to cover what this interview suggests.

  • First, he conveniently loses data that they state is going to destroy the earth and humanity…I mean, if I had such data, I would put it in a safe place, wouldn’t you?

    Second, he can’t reconstruct the data…that by definition is fake science.

    Let them prove there is warming before anything else. The burden of proof lies with them, not us.

  • Jane

    Taqiy: You’re right, they’ve captured the Democrat Party and they’re after ours. I could fill a book with my thoughts of what that absolute nonsense was with Republicans choosing an old liberal to run for president along with someone who had a pregnant unmarried daughter and needed to freshly vetted by the already rabid press.

    Please say yes.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    “Let them prove there is warming before anything else. The burden of proof lies with them, not us.”

    AGW Scientists:
    “Exactly! Good! We agree! Now give us unlimited grant money in perpetuity so that we can do this for you! And when you ask for proof in a year or in five or ten or twenty, we’ll just say the matter needs further study and more grant money like we have always done, you gullible Americans will fork it over, and we’ll live like spoiled princes again until the cycle repeats itself. Thank you!”

    Jane, I do not. I prefer the peanut galleries at my favorite blogs, and even then, only in phases. On a week, off a week. Call it A.D.D., whatever.

    Some of the best writing I’ve ever read on the internet was in the comments of blogs.

    Some of the worst, as well. You learn which blogs have the best, most insightful, politic commenters, and avoid the ones with the most trolls. Some blogs, it’s a fine balance, due to poor moderation. There are some great writers commenting on Breitbart’s ‘Big’ sites, and a truckload of insane mobies, trolls, and antisemites, as well. I can deal with that.

    Townhall, I stopped going there years ago because it’s just an insane asylum pretending to be a blog-aggregator. Commenters there not only feed the trolls, they bait them, feeding them even before they arrive, and EVERY SINGLE THREAD becomes a thread about the troll. TH got to the point where I was paranoiacally wondering if the troll-feeders were in on it, helping to derail every single important thread, to that end – stifling discussion of the article itself. If not, well, it sure had that effect. Comments there are about one notch more sane than those on YouTube. Sad to see, since it’s a repository for some great columnists.

    But no. No blog. Sorry, Jane!

    No. You aren’t the only one to think that.
    I watched in utter amazement as John McCain seemed to do everything he could to ensure that people would not vote for him.
    I don’t know what was going on, or why it was going on, or who paid whom what for it to go on – but there was something very crooked happening.
    At least we got Sarah Palin out of the whole debacle. (Perhaps the democRATS should review the Law of Unintended Consequences.)

    This makes me furious. The EPA is going to need de-funded. They are still pushing this fraud, to steal money.

  • Pretty obvious that they push ‘going green’ so that they can put that money in their bank accounts. The best advertising in the world was used to force feed information to the American people, to the world for years. They just wanted to capitalize on the fear and have done a great job at it. Al Gore lives the life of Riley while the American people recycle on their way to buy groceries with food stamps! Obama and his ilk will get their pay off once they deliver cap and trade, stimulus money for more ‘green’ jobs and the government has expanded yet again. It’s all corruption running rampant. High time to start really looking in to the money chain..

    Hey Militant Conservative –

    Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce on the TV show M*A*S*H once said the three basic human emotions are “greed, fear, and greed.”

    What these “scientists” have done is not science, because it is not reproducible (lost the original data) and they refused to reveal their methodologies (mainly the jimmied computer program used to create the simulated future warming). For something to be “science” it has to be reviewed and reproducible. There’s actually a tongue-in-cheek “science” journal called “The Journal of Irreproducible Results.” It would be a fitting place for theories of AGW.
