A stunning manmade global warming fraud exposed

A set of data long used in support of the anthropogenic global warming claim has turned out to be an out and out fraud. Tree rings from Siberia that showed dramatic atmospheric warming in recent times were based on a handful of cherry picked and unrepresentative samples from a much larger sample. Over a period of years, in no fewer than eight peer reviewed studies published in the most prestigious science journals, the promoters of AGW were allowed to keep repeating their claims without having to show the actual data on which the claims were based. Now the data have come out, and, as Melanie Phillips puts it,

The scandal not only shows once again that AGW is a fraud but shoots to pieces the integrity of scientific peer-review. In other words, a huge story. So huge that, as far as I can see, not one mainstream UK media outlet has touched it—and according to blogger Bishop Hill:

The reaction of the Guardian—to delete any mention of the affair from their comment threads—has been extraordinary.

It’s no use. The seas are rising over their heads.

So that’s why Obama has to make the seas recede. To keep the left from being drowned in their own lies.

Come gather ‘round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Or, perhaps more to the point (since I was actually thinking about it when I wrote the last sentence of the initial entry), this, from the same album:

Oh, the foes will rise
With the sleep still in their eyes
And their jerk from their beds and think they’re dreamin’.
But they’ll pinch themselves and squeal
And they’ll know that it’s for real
The hour that the ship comes in.

And they’ll raise their hands
Sayin’, “We’ll meet all your demands.”
But we’ll shout from the bow, “Your days are numbered.”
And like Pharoah’s tribe
They’ll be drowneded in the tide
And like Goliath’s they’ll be conquered.
