So what do you think about this?

I’ve been pissed for years about JUNK science that politicians use to push their agendas through.

Now, thanks to some one with computer knowledge we have proof.

Take special note of the link where you can actually read the letters and decide for yourself!

What follows are some comments from people who sounded intelligent enough. 😉  

Comments below:

This is not about a “slew of hacked emails rolling around the Internet,” nor is this a “fuss over the emails.” This is about obfuscation, non-cooperation, emails that hint at a cover-up, emails that clearly demonstrate that an agenda had overcome all scientific rationale and collaboration as they also show that scientists trying to twist and change data and prevent other viewpoints from being published. This is a very sad day for objective science and truly calls into question the theory of global warming and certainly the theory that temperature changes are man-made.
Let’s look at the facts First, There has been concern about the data presented by the IPCC for years–and this is the organization that not only Europe but the United States relies on. As a result of this concern (as well as the admission that much of the original temperature data was “lost” in the l980’s), all the primary scientific research was requested by outsiders. Yet requests were refused, so additional demands were made of the IPCC & CRU under British Freedom of Information Act. The CRU still stonewalled–a criminal offense–and then someone hacked into their site and found these terribly destructive (to the CRU scientists) emails. Secondly, although the mainstream media, including apparently US News has refused to print these emails because they were hacked/stolen (which certainly never prevented the NY Times and others publishing military or state secrets that damage this country), the newspapers in Britain and Europe have. You can see them by visiting the Telegraph (London) website at Telegraph.co.uk and searching their site. They are hugely damaging.
Thirdly, in 2003 Canadian statistician Steve McIntyre exposed the fundamental flaw in the “hockey stick” which was the image that first created the fuel for the global warming campaign; the one Al Gore still uses. This created more concerns about the very credibility of the CRU’s work–and now the CRU (Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia) emails have exposed yet another crack–even more more incriminating–were email messages from climate change scientists asking for scientific data to be deleted so it could not be turned over! You would have thought US News would have found this somewhat interesting, but the writer of this article was obviously distracted or was not alert.
Fourth, still other emails show that “scientists” worked diligently to manipulate the data through “tortious computer programmes” (source: Telegraph) to lower past temperatures and to “adjust” more recent temperatures upwards “in order to convey the impression of accelerated warming.” And the problems go on. There are other emails that show the scientists’ desperation at their difficulty in getting the results to come out the way that they wish them to be. Respected scientists on both sides of the climate change debate are now calling for an investigation.
There must be an investigation–but will it happen?

Journalistic Integrity
I can’t believe it took US News a WEEK to come up with this drivel. Science, like journalism is now suspect and politically driven. The science of man made global warming is very unsettled, and at least climategate let us peer into the computer modeling and statistical analysis that these “Scientists” were using. As a master’s level economist, we have legitimate peer review and legitimate statistical modeling.
These guys make mistakes in disciplines that they do not understand (statistics, computer programming) and then refuse to have people within that discipline review their work. Tsk, tsk tsk. We certainly shouldn’t be coughing up trillions of dollars for “Work” that should at least be tested in an open an honest forum. These guys couldn’t pass a bachelor’s level statistic or programming 400 level class.
