Institute of Physics damns the Climategaters’ “science” | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

Andrew Bolt reviews the submission by the Institute of Physics to the British parliamentary inquiry into Climate-gate. In part this assessment makes the following points:

  • the CRU e-mails as published on the Internet provide prima facie evidence of determined and co-ordinated refusals to compy with honourable scientific traditions and FOI law.
  • It is important to recognise that there are two completely different categories of data set that are involved in the CRU mail exchanges;
  • The second category relating to the proxy reconstructions are the basis for the conclusion that 20th century warming is unprecendented.
  • The e-mails revea doubts as to the reliability of the reconstructions and raise questions as to the way in which they were represented;
  • There is reason for concern at the intolerance to challenge displayed in the e-mails.
  • It should be inappropriate for the verification of the integrity of the scientific process to depend on appeals to FOI legislation.
