Is it science or is it Enron?

The East Anglia epicenter of AGW alarmism is even worse than you might have thought. Times:

Scientists at the University of East Anglia have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based. It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation. The data were gathered from weather stations around the world and then adjusted to take account of variables in the way they were collected. The revised figures were kept, but the originals — stored on paper and magnetic tape — were dumped to save space when the CRU moved to a new building.

So they threw away the actual data and kept the cooked books. Does that sound like science or does it sound like Enron? Would you want to spend a trillion dollars based on this? HT: Roger Simon

(BTW, based on the sequence of data requests and data purges and the large amounts of money involved in perpetuating the AGW scam, we won’t be surprised if charges of criminal or civil fraud are ultimately filed in this case.)

    Britain’s reaction to this obvious garbage will define Britain for future generations. (I realize they see themselves beyond reproach and always on the “right” side of humanity. I realize they also see themselves as the reasoned voice of tradition and experience.)

    Crooked behavior sanctioned by the people of Britain will not play well with the rest of the world. Look at the immediate reaction in Australia. Australia seems to have taken the lead of the British Commonwealth. If Britain cannot find the stout vigor needed to address this East Anglia mess, they will not be seriously viewed as leaders within their “commonwealth”.

    I believe the time has passed that they are seen as serious world leaders. This East Anglia business simply confirms hardening attitudes that the British can be described as slovenly and dim witted when dealing with world issues. This harkens back to the British attitude of Germany during the Victorian/Edwardian time period.

    My, how times have changed. Past British lions must be rolling over in their graves. Talk about the squandering of a regal heritage.

    I think this is tailormade for a RICO prosecution. An illegal conspiracy, which included American co-conspirators, to criminally obtain billions (potentially trillions) of dollars – it sounds like exactly what the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act was designed for.

    Of course, that assumes Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration aren’t part of the conspiracy…

    “Of course, that assumes Attorney General Holder and the Obama Administration aren’t part of the conspiracy…”

    Also assumes that either of these clowns is even remotely competent, or honest. Neither has much prospect of being true.
