Who Is Honest and Brave Enough to Come Clean?

The controversy over the leaked documents from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit has just begun. We are now learning that besides the incriminating emails, the liberated documents contain a great deal of commented computer code. That is where the real paydirt is likely to be found. Watch and learn.

One of the most troubling aspects of the global climate debate is the blatant dishonesty and / or cowardice of many bloggers who have committed to carbon hysteria as a way of life -- and who are now unwilling to even acknowledge the huge, obvious faultlines that are spreading across the climate science landscape.

True believers are found in every walk of life, but future-oriented bloggers are supposed to be more immune to "future shock" and "cognitive dissonance" than the mainstream of information purveyors. Sadly, that is not the case. Some of the best known and most highly regarded future-oriented bloggers are hiding from their own contradictions -- which are right in front of their noses!

Some refreshing exceptions to this troubling trend are the excellent future blogger Brian Wang, "mega-project" blogger Neil Craig, HBD blogger Half Sigma, HBD blogger Dennis Mangan, and futurist Thomas Frey. Brian Wang's and Thomas Frey's websites are very highly visited, and both Brian and Thomas have posted a lot of material favourable to the IPCC "consensus". But when recent material came to light that exposed the collusion, manipulation, and intimidation used by the foremost IPCC lead reviewers, both Brian and Thomas reported on the controversy in an open and objective manner.

It is too early to chastise the numerous well-regarded future bloggers who have chosen to keep quiet on this topic, by name. But true believers reveal themselves as often by their omissions as by their bandwagon causes. Al Fin climatologists hope that these quasi-religious believers in global warming catastrophe who happen to post on the future occasionally, will wake up and make a conscious choice to face the reality of today.

I thought the story about the twelve magic tree-ring samples was big. But this is huge. It sounds like the incriminating e-mails are the tip of the iceberg. Lying to acquire an unfair financial benefit is still a crime these days, right?

Al, do you of anyone tracking the main stream media on this story? So far I've seen one lead editorial devoted to the story - yes, you guessed it - today's (11/24/09) Wall Street Journal.

Are the alphabet networks really going to bury this one???

Keep an eye on Anthony Watts' "WattsUpWithThat" website, and The Air Vent website.

Climate Depot and Tom Nelson are also excellent watchdogs.

John Ray's Greenie Watch is also pretty good.

ClimateAudit.org has incredibly informative posts and comments. Anyone who regularly reads Climate Audit will not have been surprised at anything found in the CRU files.

Thanks for your comments, Baron and Craig.

I see that both of you have covered this topic on your own blogs -- well done.

It may take some time for this story to incubate, before it truly erupts on a large, public scale. Too many people have been too well indoctrinated to allow themselves to face the truth at first.

The IPCC top level control is pure scum. They've manipulated the evidence, prevented alternative theories from getting into journals and IPCC reports. They've smeared the reputations of honest researchers. And they've gotten wealthy, more powerful, and famous doing all of that.

Some payback of the first order is long overdue.

I'm not a fan of the alarmist approach to climate issues. Nearly everything being proposed will cause a significant drain on the economy with little if any tangible results.

I've seen very little hard science that can lead anyone to the conclusion that the weather issues are caused by people.

It pains me that science has become such a morass of conjecture. Science is quickly becoming a new form of religion using beliefs and "fire and brimstone sermons" as placeholders for facts. - Thomas Frey
