#1835: Climategate, part 485,238

Just a linkfest:

The Anchoress posts a linkfest, which led me to:

Dude With Keyboard, which is a worthwhile read on the failings of the climate models.

And also to Lord Monckton's summary of Climaquiddick thus far.

Just as an aside, what a great byline: "by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley". Boy, reading that in an upper-crusty British accent just sounds awesome.

...and the article neatly summarizes everything you need to know about Climategate and why it's such a seminal event in the debate over anthropogenic global warming.

I have to mention this bit from the latter link; it's a quote from the climate model source code, a remark in the code itself, and I'm presenting it with my own emphasis:

These will be artificially adjusted to look closer to the real temperatures.

Okay? One more time:

These will be artificially adjusted to look closer to the real temperatures.

Lord Monckton:
There could scarcely be a plainer admission that the data are being regularly, routinely, materially tampered with, for the sake of making it appear that the proxy data are sufficiently reliable to appear close to the instrumental temperatures.
If you have to play with your results to make them match reality, your model is shit.

If the model is shit, then the science is shit, and the entire freaking contention that global warming has anything to do with human activity is shit.

How's that for an "inconvenient truth"?
