Here are other excerpts from the e-mails just released from Professor Phil Jones:
Basis problem is that all models are wrong—not enough middle and low level clouds….[W]hat he [Zwiers] has done comes to a different conclusion than Casper and Gene! I reckon this can be saved by careful wording.
Also: “One way to cover yourself and all those working at AR5 would be to delete all e-mails at the end of the process.”
Here are two candid e-mails commenting on the work of Professor Michael Mann of Penn State University, the chief inventor of the infamous hockey stick graph. (The hockey stick graph was used to show Northern Hemisphere temperatures for the last 600 or 1,000 years by indicating a sharp rise in the late 20th century temperatures suggesting the shape of a hockey stick):
Professor John Mitchell, U.K. Met Office: Is the PCA [Principal Components Analysis] approach robust? Are the results statistically significant? It seems to me that in the case of MBH [one of the key hockey stick articles by Mann, Raymond S. Bradley, and Malcolm K. Hughes] the answer in each case is no.
The myth of man-made global warming posits horrendous climate developments, ranging from rising sea waters to shortages of food supplies and collapsing biodiversity systems. Energy Secretary Steven Chu, for instance, has said, “Much of Florida would be under water” and temperatures could rise by “5 to 6 degrees.”
The mainstream media has accepted global warming hook, line, and sinker. New York Times “reporter” Andy Revkin recently asked the alarmist community for the most persuasive data that will convince stupid Americans of climate change. He was quoted as writing: “Our Week in Review folks want…to pull together a graphic and short story by me explaining what aspects of recent…warming speak most clearly of probable human greenhouse influence….”
Global warming is big business. Even though by some accounts there has been no warming since 1998 and a dearth of sunspots portends global cooling, maintaining the myth of dangerous global warming brings in dollars to federal agencies, college research grants, rent-seeking alternative energy companies, and others. These unnecessary expenditures contribute to our $14 trillion budget deficit.
But Obama knows we have plenty of money to spend needlessly. We’re only $15 billion in debt.
