Lord Lawson calls for public inquiry into UEA global warming data 'manipulation'

Lord Lawson, the former chancellor, has called for an independent inquiry into claims that leading climate change scientists manipulated data to strengthen the case for man-made global warming.

Thousands of emails and documents stolen from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and posted online indicate that researchers massaged figures to mask the fact that world temperatures have been declining in recent years.

This morning Lord Lawson, who has reinvented himself as a prominent climate change sceptic since leaving front line politics, demanded that the apparent deception be fully investigated.

He claimed that the credibility of the university's world-renowned Climatic Research Unit - and British science - were under threat.

"They should set up a public inquiry under someone who is totally respected and get to the truth," he told the BBC Radio Four Today programme.

"If there's an explanation for what's going on they can make that explanation."

Around 1,000 emails and 3,000 documents were stolen from UEA computers by hackers last week and uploaded on to a Russian server before circulating on websites run by climate change sceptics.

Some of the correspondence indicates that the manipulation of data was widespread among global warming researchers.

Call for independent inquiry into Climategate as global warming fraud implodes

Paul Joseph WATSON - PrisonPlanet.com
23 November 2009

Calls for an independent inquiry into what is being dubbed “Climategate” are growing as the foundation for man-made global warming implodes following the release of emails which prove researchers colluded to manipulate data in order to “hide the decline” in global temperatures.

Former British chancellor Lord Lawson was the latest to demand an impartial investigation be launched into the scandal, which arrives just weeks before the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. “They should set up a public inquiry under someone who is totally respected and get to the truth,” he told the BBC Radio Four Today programme.

The emails were leaked at the end of last week after hackers penetrated the servers of the Climatic Research Unit, which is based at the University of East Anglia, in eastern England. The CRU is described as one of the leading climate research bodies in the world.

The hacked documents and communications reveal how top scientists conspired to falsify data in the face of declining global temperatures in order to prop up the premise that man-made factors are driving climate change. Others illustrate how they embarked on a venomous and coordinated campaign to ostracize climate skeptics and use their influence to keep dissenting reports from appearing in peer-reviewed journals, as well as using cronyism to avoid compliance with Freedom of Information Act requests.

India challenges Western data linking climate change, Himalayan melt

Rama LAKSHMI - Washington Post
22 November 2009

NEW DELHI -- As countries around the world prepare to flex their negotiating muscles at next month's climate-change summit in Copenhagen, India has begun to question the Western model of computing global warming statistics.

Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh released a report last week that says there is no conclusive evidence that climate change has caused the melting of the Himalayan glaciers. The report says that not all of the glaciers are receding at alarming rates and that a few are even advancing.

The report, an analysis of data from the past four decades, is part of India's efforts to produce a body of indigenous research assessments on the subject.
 
"So far, we have been depending on research conducted by the West on what is happening to our glaciers and environment," he said after releasing the report, which was prepared by a former scientist with the Geological Survey of India and included a disclaimer that it did not necessarily reflect the government's view.
 
"There is an urgent need to have our own studies by our scientists," he said.

The evidence of climate fraud

Marc SHEPPARD - American Thinker
21 November 2009

A
 folder containing documents, data and, e-mails purportedly "hacked" from Britain's Climate Research Unit (CRU) may be smoking-gun proof of a worldwide conspiracy to exaggerate the existence, causation, and threat of global warming. And the list of apparent conspirators includes many of the world's leading climate alarmists -- the very scientists on whose work the entire anthropogenic global warming theory is based.

In a Friday interview with Investigative Magazine's TGIF Edition, CRU director Phillip Jones confirmed [PDF] that the incriminating documents, which have been widely disseminated online, are in fact genuine. Accordingly, whether indeed the labor of hackers, or instead that of a CRU whistleblower, the contents of the FOI2009 folder are now public record -- and that's nothing short of dynamite.

After all, the names of the email exchangers represent a who's-who of the world's leading climate alarmism scientists, including Stephen Schneider, Gavin Schmidt, and James Hansen. And the e-mails themselves seemingly betray an organized apparatus of deception.

COPENHAGEN CONFERENCE:
Should we surrender our economic sovereignty (and more) to the United Nations?


Mark DUCHAMPS
18 November 2009

The coming Copenhagen conference “COP 15” is more about transferring one trillion euros from our taxpayers to the Third World than it is about saving the planet. If we want to address poverty and hunger in the world, then we should start by ensuring that our present aid does not find its way into private bank accounts. That would be a positive, meaningful first step forward.

As for climate change, the science is far from being settled. The world's mean temperature stopped warming after 1998 and has actually been cooling since 2007. Ice volume is growing again in the Arctic. Many glaciers are advancing throughout the world, and sea levels have stabilised.

Over 31,000 scientists are denouncing the half-lies and statistical manipulations of the United Nations’ IPCC, but their voices are not allowed to reach the wider public. They have been collectively banned from television appearances for being “deniers”.  Science is being muzzled as it was in the Middle Ages, and green zealots bank on this to establish the embryo of a world government under their control.

An example of rampant misrepresentation of IPCC reports is the frequent assertion that “hundreds of IPCC scientists” support the statement that greenhouse gases are “likely” to be responsible for “most” of the observed global warming in the past few decades. But in reality, only 62 scientists reviewed the chapter in which this statement appears ( the critical chapter 9 “Understanding and Attributing Climate Change” ).  And of the 62 expert reviewers of this chapter, 55 had serious vested interest, leaving only seven expert reviewers who appear impartial. And then again, of the written comments made by the 62 reviewers of this critical chapter, almost 60% of them were rejected by IPCC editors as they did not fit the political agenda. This is what global warming activists feed to the public as being a "global scientific consensus”. It's a scam, really.

There is more : climate alarmism claims that CO2 is a pollutant. But nothing could be further from the truth. CO2 is as essential to life as is oxygen. It is plant food. It makes crops more abundant and it greens deserts. As for carbon, it is an essential building block of life – ask any biologist.  So we are being lied to, quite simply.

Climate change exists and has always existed. It warms and cools the planet according to cycles that are poorly understood. Variations in solar radiation, volcanic activity, and warm/cool cycles in ocean currents are the main “drivers” of changes in climate. As it stands, some IPCC scientists, the Met Office, and even the BBC have admitted we have entered a cooling cycle in spite of increased emissions of CO2.  IPCC scientists are clueless about how long the cooling will last, but they make more warming predictions to save face and to secure funding.

Conclusion

At Copenhagen in December, governments will agree to commit to a process that will lead to useless yet hugely espensive decarbonisation schemes, and to the granting of supranational powers to a new bureaucracy largely influenced by alter-mundialist NGO’s and by the UN. 

Unemployment will soar. Ill-conceived energy policies based on ineffective yet costly wind farms will ruin both our landscapes and wildlife while causing financial losses and physical sufferings to neighbours. It is high time to stop this devastation, and UKIP is calling for the dismissal of the Copenhagen Conference lest our sovereignty is taken away by anti-democratic forces.

Do we want green bureaucrats to run our lives? Haven’t we learned enough from the soviet experience?

The Polar Night climate model against UN’s ”Kyoto” climate model

Prof. G. Høpner PETERSEN
18 November 2009

UN’s “Kyoto” climate model was promoted in many places by the US ex-president Al Gore in his film and book “an inconvenient truth”. It was introduced by the Danish climate minister Connie Hedegaard, 28-3-2007, in my local cinema, “Gladsaxe Bio”. Al Gore postulated “climate crisis”, rising sea level and flooding low lands, due to the sun and the greenhouse effect caused by human use of coal and gas could melt the polar ice with. This cannot compensate for the heat loss during the Polar Nights.  Hence, his “climate crisis” is false. I called it a “convenient politically lie”, 10-4-2007, in our local newspaper. He ignored the Polar Night climate model.

Of course only a few have experienced the Polar nights and measured their influence on the deep, cold, Arctic oceans with their specialised arctic marine life. Fishmarkets sell some Arctic species like the “Deep Sea Prawn”, the “Greenland Halibut”, the “redfish”. They belong to the basic, arctic, marine food chain. On top of this energy flow are toppredators like Polarbear and Whalrus. The icebergs from the glaciers float in the Arctic oceans, surrounded during summer by boats fishing “deep sea prawn”. During winter the “Greenland Halibut” is fished through holes in the sea ice. The global heat loss during the Polar nights has during million of years created the polar Oceans with the well adapted polar species The polar oceans and the ocean currents control the global climate. Human use of coal and oil, hot air, greenhouse effect, CO2 quotas etc are of no influence.

Polar Bear and Icebergs are erroneously used as victims for a “climate crisis”, for instance the Polar Bear by “Politiken”, and Icebergs by the large Swedish bank “Nordea”.

US president Barack Obama wants China to allow rights of free speech and free press without censurship. Barack Obama can demand the same from the Danish Government and medias, who suppressed all “Kyoto” critics in articles, lectures etc. I asked the EU parliament, 7-5-2009,  to secure my rights of free speech for “Kyoto” critics. The curageous “Frederiksborg Amts Avis” referred it , 25-5-2009, as ”A convenient climate lie”. EU accepted, 13-10-2009, my plea for free speech to “Kyoto” critics. They refer the Polar night climate model to the commision for food resources. They refer my right for free speech to the Danish “Folketingets Ombudsmand".

There is a huge finansiel and NGO pressure to a global agreement on CO2 quotas with all the taxes and number of conflicts. Several countries are clever enough to win the position as victims for a hypotized “climate crisis”. As victims they claim compensation from EU as responsible for “climate changes”. It leads to endless cases known from insurance compagnies. EU accepted UN’s “Kyoto” agreement without own independent studies of the model, the expences etc.

The politicians selected one “scientific “ model as the “truth” and supressed all critics. This brings our civilisation back to the times before Galileo. 

I hope this paper to “The Copenhagen Climate Challenge”, 6-12-2009, will bring some common sense and scientific knowledge to politicians and medias at COP-15 in the “Bella Centre”.
