Hackers Expose Global Warming as Phony Science

Hackers have busted into a GW research institute's cpu files and shared them with millions of people. What have they found? So far, it's a widespread collection of fraud, manipulating numbers, and witchcraft. Witchcraft is a good word since they send some emails back and forth discussing how they can stop sending research to some journals because those journals are '"too demanding" with data. I've always been someone who believed the Earth was getting warmer but we did not know the impact of humans. Might not be the case now. I always felt the data they used was sketchy, like how the official temperature thermometer in Buffalo was right next to an air conditioning unit's heat exhaust, and when models for temps 2 years in the future don't turn out correct, why should we trust your prediction for 20 years in the future? Good ending in this article on it. "AGW really means 'All your gold belong to we'". A government power grab which will transfer money from people to 1. govt coffers, 2. clean energy interests, 3. scammers like Goldman Sachs who would game a carbon credit system.

Update: I forgot to point out that Michael Crichton must be laughing in the afterlife when he compared the consensus around the pseudo-science of global warming to eugenics of early 20th century infamy.

I disagree with you here. I don't think that all of the data and findings should be discounted because of this. Either way you and I are dependent upon most likely politically motivated scientists for facts we could never personally prove or disprove. It's all faith. Even Einstein's theory- we accept that it's real on faith.

good point. i'm still nervous though with this data being used as the basis for reorganizing how we pay for our lives.
