Climate Change Data Trashed

Last week and a half ago leaked e-mails from the University of East Anglia in Norwich,England Climate Research Unit was found on a Russian website which began a chain reaction and calls that Global Warming are fraud and hoax. Now another bombshell has exploded.

Several ask via the United Kingdom’s Freedom of Information laws(Similar to  the Freedom of Information Act in the United States.) has revealed that much to information based on 150 years trashed. The Climate Research Unit admitted that they trashed the information when the Climate Research Unit moved to a new facility.

That means other research scientist will not able to able to check calculations that would show long-term  global temperature rising over the last 150 years.

The information gather from weather station from an around the world;  then adjusted for variations in the way they were collected. The originals were handwritten and on magnetic tape both thrown away to save space when the CRU moved into a larger facility.

In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenized) data.”

Climate Change critics   needed to see  the documents   to find how the data complied. Now that lost  forever.

One scientist Roger Peilke professor of Environmental Studies at Colorado University discovered  the data missing when he request the records.

“The CRU is basically saying, ‘Trust us’. So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,” he said.

Prof. Phil Jones,was not at the CRU  in the 1980s when the docs was discarded.  The Lost data was used to create a database that has Jones’ data base showing the world temperatures rising by 0.8 Celsius .

Jones and his  colleagues  the temperature  increase                      “unequivocally” and  is due to greenhouse gases. The finding used by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says global warming is a detriment to society and planet.

Copenhagen  Must postponed no treaties, no agreements, no one red cent until the truth comes out.
