The dog ate my global warming data2 min read

Listen to this article

climateofextremesEver wonder how the whole global warming scare all came about?  As it turns out, the original data used to get us all alarmed is MISSING, and the scientists that first massaged it to ‘prove’ global warming don’t have the original data anymore.  What a convenient loss of truth!

You can read the entire story in The Dog Ate Global Warming, written by Patrick J. Michaels, author of Climate of Extremes: Global Warming Science They Don’t Want You to Know.  Here’s a money quote from the article:

Now begins the fun. Warwick Hughes, an Australian scientist, wondered where that +/- came from, so he politely wrote Phil Jones in early 2005, asking for the original data. Jones’s response to a fellow scientist attempting to replicate his work was:

“We have 25 years or so invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”

Reread that statement, for it is breathtaking in its anti-scientific thrust. In fact, the entire purpose of replication is to “try and find something wrong.” The ultimate objective of science is to do things so well that, indeed, nothing is wrong….

Roger Pielke Jr., an esteemed professor of environmental studies at the University of Colorado, then requested the raw data from Jones. Jones responded:

Since the 1980s, we have merged the data we have received into existing series or begun new ones, so it is impossible to say if all stations within a particular country or if all of an individual record should be freely available. Data storage availability in the 1980s meant that we were not able to keep the multiple sources for some sites, only the station series after adjustment for homogeneity issues. We, therefore, do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (i.e., quality controlled and homogenized) data.

Global Warming Alarmism is just one of the manufactured crises of modern day liberal politics.  What about the 4000 unborn children killed daily?  What about the fact that half of all black American pregnancies end in abortion?  Not a crisis?
