Another “Hack” at Global Warming

Hackers are not very nice people — all that firewall busting and information stealing.  It’s a nuisance for the Pentagon and for companies as well as an unwelcome invasion of privacy.  But sometimes they expose some interesting things, like recently when some hackers broke into a British climate research center and exposed that there was an effort in the scientific community to hide the recent decline of global temperatures from general public.

Maybe this is all just anti-global warming propaganda, but apparently Phil Jones, the director at the victimized Hadley Research Unit at the University of Anglia, has confirmed the hacking took place.  It’s pretty scathing if even partially authentic.  Give it a read.  Jones has neither confirmed or denied the authenticity of the 61 megabytes of emails, which is in itself quite telling.

Why should this kind of scandal make sense?  Here’s my thought:  once enough scientists bought into the anthropogenic (man-made) global warming theory and sought continued funding for their research into it, the temptation to cook the books in order to maintain that funding through a public panic was in the best interests of both scientists and politicians alike:  the scientists say the sky is falling, the politicians stoke (then respond to) the crisis for the public good.  Truth be damned if there is funding to be hoarded and people to make dependent on government solutions!

Of course, I am of the belief that many of those in Europe who wore red in the Cold War just changed to green in the decades since.  Thus, inconclusive science affecting real law which may limit liberties is something to be truly concerned about.

First of all I would like to say superb blog!
I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
