“Climategate” Roundup, for Friday 28 November 2009

As always I will draw no direct conclusions, just simple pattern matching. For many private reasons I find this scandal interesting.  I await further revelations, and seeing how the media and government covers the issue.

The lead-up to this has brewed for some time, as the general row between Scientists who are Skeptical about Anthropogenic Climate Change (so-called “Global Warming Deniers”) and Scientists who support Anthropogenic Climate Change (“Global Warming Supporters” increased in intensity.
Recently an intrepid team of Hackers brought to light some interesting details, posting several megs of emails from a server they hacked. My own ethical comments aside, I am sure that quite a few scientists around the world this week are deleting their inboxes. Which is a shame. However what HAS come to light is nothing short of interesting.

And as always it is good to “ph34r 31337 h4x0rs”

“..Steel yourself for the new reality, because the data needed to verify the gloom-and-doom warming forecasts have disappeared. Or so it seems. Apparently, they were either lost or purged from some discarded computer. Only a very few people know what really happened, and they aren’t talking much. And what little they are saying makes no sense….”
