Even as protesters in Portland, Oregon (yes, Portland!) were protesting Al Gore’s appearance there on Wednesday, emails have been stolen by a hacker who broke into the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit, one of the biggest proponents of AGW in England, and who was found to be juking stats to support their global warming claims earlier this year.
The emails reveal that there has been a pattern of doctoring results to support the climate change meme. In the example below, the Michael E. Mann referenced is the same discredited “scientist” who created the “Mann’s Hockey Stick” chart that Al Gore used as one of his proofs in his movie (also discredited).

Subject: Diagram for WMO Statement

Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm,
Once Tim’s got a diagram here we’ll send that either later today or
first thing tomorrow.
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps
to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from
1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline. Mike’s series got the annual
land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land
N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999
for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for 1999 with
data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998.
Thanks for the comments, Ray.

I’ve been saying since I started blogging in 2002 that AGW is a scam. I have stood by my arguments while taking all sorts of abuse from true believers. And now the cat is out of the bag. The public is against the Cap and Trade bill and increasingly the whole climate change argument. Nature is proving the whole thing to be bunk.
Any politician pushing this swill is going to get pilloried. And just think, election year 2010 is less than six weeks away!
