Joy! UN To Investigate CRU E-mail Leak

From that scourge of leaked information, the  Associated Press:

Chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Dr. Rajendra Pachauri talks to the media during a press conference at the European Parliament in Brussels, Thursday Dec. 3, 2009. Rajendra Pachauri spoke at the European Parliament’s hearing on Global Warming and Food Policy in order to launch his key message Less Meat equals Less Heat, one week before the Copenhagen summit.

United Nations to probe climate e-mail leak


December 4, 2009

LONDON — The United Nations will conduct its own investigation into e-mails leaked from a leading British climate science center in addition to the probe by the University of East Anglia, a senior U.N. climate official said Friday.

E-mails stolen from the climate unit at the University of East Anglia appeared to show some of world’s leading scientists discussing ways to shield data from public scrutiny and suppress others’ work. Those who deny the influence of man-made climate change have seized on the correspondence to argue that scientists have been conspiring to hide evidence about global warming.

In an interview with BBC radio, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Rajendra Pachauri, said the issue raised by the e-mails was serious and said "we will look into it in detail."

"We will certainly go into the whole lot and then we will take a position on it," he said. "We certainly don’t want to brush anything under the carpet."

East Anglia said its review will examine the e-mails and other information "to determine whether there is any evidence of the manipulation or suppression of data which is at odds with acceptable scientific practice."

The theft of the e-mails and their publication online — only weeks before the U.N. summit on global warming — has been politically explosive, even if researchers say their content has no bearing on the principles of climate change itself.

Britain’s Ed Miliband, the climate change secretary, acknowledged the revelations may have an impact on the Copenhagen talks on a new global emissions reduction pact, but dismissed as "flat Earth-ers" critics who claim the e-mails are proof the case for man-made climate change is exaggerated.

"We need maximum transparency including about all the data but it’s also very, very important to say one chain of e-mails, potentially misrepresented, does not undo the global science," Miliband said Friday. "I think we want to send a very clear message to people about that."

"There will be people that want to use this to try and undermine the science and we’re not going to let them," he said

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have grilled government scientists on the leaked e-mails in a hearing Wednesday in Washington, but the scientists countered that the e-mails don’t change the fact that the Earth is warming.

"The e-mails do nothing to undermine the very strong scientific consensus … that tells us the Earth is warming, that warming is largely a result of human activity," said Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

She said the e-mails don’t address data from her agency or the U.S. space agency NASA, which both keep independent climate records that show dramatic global warming.

So which is it? Were the emails “stolen” or “leaked”?

Mind you, this is from the same Associated Press that just yesterday published stolen emails without batting an eye. Just as they did with Sarah Palin. And have in untold other instances when they thought such information would help forward their agenda.

But the United Nations to get on their high horse really takes the biscuit.

Perhaps they will put the same hardnosed investigators on this leak as they have probing Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

"We certainly don’t want to brush anything under the carpet."

Of course Mr. Pachauri does want to sweep it under the carpet. And to discourage any further revelations of the truth. But UN honchos can always be counted on to say the opposite of what they truly mean.

Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have grilled government scientists on the leaked e-mails in a hearing Wednesday in Washington, but the scientists countered that the e-mails don’t change the fact that the Earth is warming.

No, just like ten years of global cooling don’t change the fact that the Earth is warming.

It’s very hard to change ‘facts’ that are based on fraudulent data and that form the core of a religion.

    Climate Change = Joke
    U.N. = Joke
    Barbara “Call me Senator” Boxer = Joke
    Barack Obama = Joke
    Cap & Trade = Joke

    Seems the joke is now on “them jokers”.

    I’ve always thought Mr. Pachauri looks like a bad guy from a Star Trek film. BTW, I was just watching snow flurries from my office window here in Houston. Its the earliest snow fall on record here. Must be some of that global warming stuff, like the snow I saw last June (yes June!) in southeast Utah.

    Who says there is no Santa? It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. Santa’s helpers were busy hacking emails earlier this year ;) Just one of the early gifts Americans received. He does live at the North Pole.


  4. GL0120 says:

    The only investigation will be of who did the hacking / leaking.
    After all, Global Warming / Climate Change is simply too big to fail.

  5. proreason says:

    Why would someone allow their appearance to resemble Satan?

    • ptat says:

      I am sure Mr. Pachauri vainly believes he looks really cool and exciting, like the rock star he thinks he is!

    –There will be people that want to use this to try and undermine the science and we’re not going to let them,” he said–
    Most important line.

    Global warming is SCIENCE, dammit, and we’re not going to let something like the fact that it’s not getting warmer, or that our evidence was cooked, or that we’ve had to intimidate, libel, and ruin the opposition just to make anybody believe what we were saying get in the way of science.

    Ann Coulter–as usual–was right. “Science,” like “The Constitution,” has no value to liberals–they don’t understand it, and they don’t like it. For the left, the two words are nothing more than labels to stick onto something you like in hopes of silencing opposition.

    What’s a Klingon doing lecturing the Federation on climate studies?

    Qo’nos – otherwise spelt Kronos – is their homeworld and is green in color and a much warmer climate than ours …

    Hold on a second there, Sparky … I’m having a breakthrough association …

    In the Star Trek universe, Qo’noS is the Klingon homeworld, also known as Kronos. Qo’noS is ruled by the Klingon High Command. The planet is green in color. Around the 14th century, Qo’noS was invaded by the Hur’q. The Hur’q (a Klingon term meaning “outsider”) was the name given by the Klingons to a now-extinct species that flourished approximately a thousand years ago. They are most noted for invading the Klingon homeworld of Qo’noS, plundering whatever they could and destroying the rest. Amongst the most valuable treasures stolen by the Hur’q was the revered Sword of Kahless. The Hur’q appear to have originated from the Gamma Quadrant. The Hur’q invasion was one of the first attacks that threatened the very existence of the Klingon Empire. It occurred some time before 2154 and was the last time the Empire was threatened on such a massive scale before the Klingon augment virus.

    Qo’noS suffered severe ecological damage with the destruction of its moon, Praxis, in 2293. In 2293 over-mining and insufficient safety precautions led to the destruction of Praxis in a massive explosion. The shockwave from the explosion damaged Qo’noS’ ozone layer, and the remains of the moon formed an asteroid belt around Qo’noS which threatened all life on the Klingon homeworld. Klingon scientists estimated Qo’noS would not be able to support life just thirty-four years after the disaster and the Federation predicted the fall of the Klingon Empire within fifty years as a result. At some unknown period in the distant past, the Iconians deployed one of their Gateways on this moon where it remained undetected for hundreds of years. For many years, the Klingons used the molten core of Praxis to provide the Empire with energy. The Klingons were noted as the first people to test such a procedure and their work was duplicated by the Bajorans who tapped their moon of Jeraddo to provide a similar source of energy for Bajor. The destruction of Praxis resulted in a much warmer climate on Kronos and was a unmistakable signature of the coming doom of the homeworld. (The capitol city is shown to be snow-covered during the Enterprise era c. 2151, but is rather warm in the TNG era.) The planet was first visited by Humans in 2151.

    Now, given all that …. I present to you the Klingon Ambassador Dr. Rajendra Pachauri.

    Between Pachauri, Gore, the rest of the Climate Hysteria crowd and the media/science establishment cabal who make literally BILLIONS off this madness … I’m beginning to think that maybe, just maybe there really are aliens in our midst and their reincarnation dreams of the Past Through Tomorrow are driving their actions and passions today.

    I mean, maybe the Large Hadron Collider did work after all and the future in which Klingons suffer the cataclysmic overwarming of their homeworld is influencing the present where the roots of Federation are being nurtured right now.


    Pass me that bong, again. I’ve got more thinking to do.

  8. Liberals Demise says:

    The Left warmmongers are watching their Golden Calf loose it’s shine and the money tit shrivel up.
    That is all they really care about.

    I have a brilliant idea here. Why not go after the scam artists and the Chicken Littles’? For this is where you will catch the real crooks!

    “Houston…..we have a problem.”

  9. ptat says:

    Gee—I am still waiting for the UN to wrap up the “Food For Oil” scandal investigation. The largest corruption scandal in the history of the UN and yet, you never hear a peep about it anymore….

  10. TerryAnne says:

    “There will be people that want to use this to try and undermine the science and we’re not going to let them,” he said…

    Ah! Rest assured, now, that the UN panel will conduct this research without fault or bias. Move along, people. Move along.

    “We certainly don’t want to brush anything under the carpet.” …

    No. You just want to use this and all other incriminating evidence as the liner for the trash bin where we will all throw away our nuclear bombs while linking arms and humming Kumbaya (humming because it obviously reduces the amount of CO2 that can be released from our stinking lifeforms).

    She said the e-mails don’t address data from her agency or the U.S. space agency NASA, which both keep independent climate records that show dramatic global warming.

    Really? I know I am – and so are many others – still waiting on NASAs data.

  11. bill says:

    The guy looks like the devil character played by ice skater Elvis Stojko.

    So how can anyone check their work if the original data has been tossed. Unless they want to ‘find it’ … I call fraud. There is plenty of peer review that has been suppressed since it didn’t meet with the fraudsters approval.

    And then there is this tiny problem of the missing Al Gore blanket …

    • proreason says:

      Funny how they didn’t discover anything was missing until a few days ago.
      Hundreds of e-mails discussing how they would refuse to disclose it or would destroy it before giving it up.

      But not a single word in all those emails saying that it was already destroyed.

      And how unlike people whose entire life work is built upon a database to never ever disclose to even their most intimate associates that the base data was thrown aways years ago.

      Why, if they weren’t such prestiguous scientists imbued with the utmost integrity, you would almost think somebody is lying about it.

      And in addition, even if they aren’t lying through their sneering teeth and the data was actually thrown away, there is all that computer code that describes all the manipulations they had to do with it. And, of course, we have the results of those manipulations, and the formulas that did the manipulations, and one would expect that one could then back into what the original data was. At least, that’s what would be possible in the real world.

      But we aren’t in the real world. We are in the fairy tale world of Al Toad and friends.

  12. Right of the People says:

    Don’t you know you’re supposed to trust and believe them because they are the ELITES and they all have all of those great advanced degrees? After all they are sooooo much smarter than we, the unwashed masses, are. How could any of us doubt their veracity when the say the earth is warming?

    Felons every last one of them. Fitting justice would be for them all to perish from hypothermia clutching their tofu and Birkenstocks.

  13. sheehanjihad says:

    This guy reminds me of Rasputin…the “monk” who hosed the entire Romanov family and it’s court for all kinds of nefarious but certainly self serving motives…..he was pure bunk, and like today, anyone who disagreed with him was quietly eliminated. The United Nations is right up there with Global Warming…..it is pure and unadulterated FRAUD…and should be treated as such.

  14. joeblough says:

    That is one hell of a photo.

    I wonder whether he looks better or worse without his hairpiece?
