BOMBSHELL - Russian IEA Claims CRU (Thus NOAA/NASA) Probably Tampered With Their Data ^ | December 15 2009 | Rionovosti/IceCap

Posted on 12/16/2009 4:58:36 PM PST by Para-Ord.45

A discussion of the November 2009 Climatic Research Unit e-mail hacking incident, referred to by some sources as "Climategate," continues against the backdrop of the abortive UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen (COP15) discussing alternative agreements to replace the 1997 Kyoto Protocol that aimed to combat global warming.

The incident involved an e-mail server used by the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich, East England. Unknown persons stole and anonymously disseminated thousands of e-mails and other documents dealing with the global-warming issue made over the course of 13 years.

Controversy arose after various allegations were made including that climate scientists colluded to withhold scientific evidence and manipulated data to make the case for global warming appear stronger than it is.

Climategate has already affected Russia. On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country's territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

On the whole, climatologists use the incomplete findings of meteorological stations far more often than those providing complete observations.

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations.

The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world's land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.

Global-temperature data will have to be modified if similar climate-date procedures have been used from other national data because the calculations used by COP15 analysts, including financial calculations, are based on HadCRUT research.

From: Phil Jones To: "Michael E. Mann" Subject: Re: have you seen this? Date: Wed Mar 31 09:09:04 2004 Mike, Yes, but not had a chance to read it yet. Too much else going on...He's now looking at homogenization techniques for temperature to check the Siberian temperature data. We keep telling him the decline is also in N. Europe, N. America (where we use all the recently homogenized Canadian data). The decline may be slightly larger in Siberia, but it is elsewhere as well....Recently rejected two papers (one for JGR and for GRL) from people saying CRU has it wrong over Siberia. WENT TO TOWN in both reviews, hopefully successfully. If either appears I will be very surprised, but you never know with GRL. Cheers Phil

President Bush was right, after all, about Putin... :-)

It would be impossible to estimate what this scam has already cost taxpayers and corporations around the world. People belong in jail.

How about that.

God bless Russia for saving us from the Stalinists.

No big surprise. Well, Watts' research showed that a multitude of NOAA's temperature sensors were positioned to achieve inflatedly hot readings.


Beam me to Planet Gore !
