Now its all beginning to make sense. Yesterday we found out that scientists at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) have finally agreed to share their raw data with the world. The fact they have been unwilling to share all their data so their research can be replicated has for years cast doubt on their results. All that changed when emails from the CRU were hacked and posted on the internet. . Now, after being under fire since the Emails were released scientists at the CRU have finally agreed to share their research:
In a statement welcomed by climate change sceptics, the university said it would make all the data accessible as soon as possible, once its Climatic Research Unit (CRU) had negotiated its release from a range of non-publication agreements.
The publication will be carried out in collaboration with the Met Office Hadley Centre. The full data, when disclosed, is certain to be scrutinised by both sides in the fierce debate.
Apparently not everything will be released. Snatching a page from ACORN, scientists at the CRU have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based. That means the basic calculations used to create the man-made global warming hysteria cannot be checked by neutral observers.

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.
Yes that’s right, their dogs ate their homework. Its more likely they were dumped because the heat began rising inside because it wasn’t rising outside.
In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”
The CRU is the world’s leading centre for reconstructing past climate and temperatures. Climate change sceptics have long been keen to examine exactly how its data were compiled. That is now impossible.
Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, discovered data had been lost when he asked for original records. “The CRU is basically saying, ‘Trust us’. So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,” he said.
“Trust us” Its a climate change scientist code word meaning “up yours, we are not sharing the data.”
Some of the leading scientists from the “Holy Church of Global Warming Moonbats” have proved they have learned a very important rule from the playbook of US President Barack Obama: when confronted with facts that can cause you trouble, defend yourself by attacking the person(s) delivering the facts, call the news a big lie, or say it was taken totally out of context. And NEVER, back up your attacks with facts.
If attacking the reporter instead of the news doesn’t work, then they fall back on the ACORN playbook: toss out any incriminating evidence.
