Things are really getting interesting regarding the global warming cult. Sunday I posted this: Main Stream Media Awakens to Global Warming Fraud. And just one day later there are calls for investigations on both sides of ‘the pond’.
The Washington Times also interviewed Senator Inhofe about the surprise revelation from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) e-mails over the past few days, especially in how they manipulated data and deliberately hid contradictory information while building their “consensus” on anthropogenic global warming. Inhofe told Melanie Morgan and Jed Babbin that he would call for a Congressional hearing on the e-mails and their impact on the credibility of the AGW movement, especially as it relates to the IPCC and the United Nations:
Ed Morrissey has a lot more at Hot Air
And across the pond Lord Lawson calls for an investigation.
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.
One of the emails under scrutiny, written by Phil Jones, the centre’s director, in 1999, reads: “I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature [the science journal] trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”
!!UPDATE!! CBS has a great article on this. Yes, CBS! Congress May Probe Leaked Global Warming E-Mails
