Parliamentary Inquiry into Climategate: Expert Evidence

Above the Fold

You can get an insider's view of part of the English Parliament's investigation of scientific misconduct at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) by reading this written submission of evidence to that investigation by Dr. Ross McKitrick , a professor of environmental economics at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and contributor to the Cornwall Alliance's A Renewed Call to Truth, Prudence, and Protection of the Poor: An Evangelical Examination of the Theology, Science, and Economics of Global Warming. If anybody tells you the emails and computer code released from CRU last November are a tempest in a teapot and seem significant only if taken out of context, send him to this. The case for intentional deception is overwhelming.

A few highlights:

  • Right at the start, McKitrick demonstrates that two of the five members of the Parliamentary investigating committee were hopelessly biased by their own previous statements and activities to find in favor of the CRU and its erstwhile director, Phil Jones. (One of them resigned under pressure. The other remains. How probable is it that, by accident, two members with strong bias in the same direction were appointed to an investigative panel of only five members despite there having been strong safeguards written into the selection process?)
  • Farther along, McKitrick explains exactly why the word "trick" in one famous email is completely irrelevant, but the phrase "hide the decline" is enormously important, exposing intentional effort to hide evidence that undermines the IPCC's entire case that late 20th century warming is historically unprecedented, and therefore the need for any reference to human activity to "explain" it.
  • And later still, McKitrick demonstrates, with precise documentation, how Jones and other IPCC authors corrupted the peer review process to keep contrary evidence out of the 2007 Assessment Report.
  • And don't miss Appendix B, a refutation of the IPCC's 2007 Assessment Report's claim that atmospheric "arctic oscillations" explained away the large fictitious warming signal from urban heat island effect and other land use changes.
