Three Blind Mice Clear Climategate

There’s an AP article out of the UK this morning, a story clearing climate scientists in East Anglia of the most serious charges regarding what has become known as Climategate . After having glanced at a photograph of the detectives running the “for show” investigation it wasn’t difficult to understand how nothing was found.

“The first of several British investigations into the e-mails leaked from one of the world's leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved.

The House of Commons' Science and Technology Committee said Wednesday that they'd seen no evidence to support charges that the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit or its director, Phil Jones, had tampered with data or perverted the peer review process to exaggerate the threat of global warming -- two of the most serious criticisms levied against the climatologist and his colleagues.”

Investigators have also cleared the Flat Earth Society in a defamation suit filed by the family of Christopher Columbus claiming he never reached the New World. The case was thrown out when ships approaching the horizon presumably fell off the edge and were never seen again.

When I was working Jail Division for the Houston Police Department many years ago one of my duties was to take the “winos” in front of the Municipal Court judge, a chance for them to plead out their cases and get on with life. The common term used was Jake Docket and I had to keep them in line while, one at a time, they gave a reason for having fallen off the wagon.

“Your Honor, I was doing pretty good staying sober until I got news my dear old mother passed away and I couldn’t handle the bad news. That’s why I got drunk; but it won’t happen again, your Honor.”

The judge smiled at having listened to a well put together sob story and let him off with “time served”.

From the back of the line of came a shout, a wino yet to be heard, “He stole my story, your Honor!”

The judge smiled a broad smile and paused a moment to reflect on what had happened. “Well, at least you were honest enough to admit it was a story; you can go home too.”

The data that was altered or lost by climate scientists in East Anglia, that was just a story too. File this under CROCK!

I don't think they tampered with the research. They prevented pear review. That is the crime. When the research was leaked and the research proves that they were liying about the results. That was the crime.

That mankind was; and the global warming nougats are still insainly asserting, that we should continue to spend trillions to abate something that has no concrete evedenciary conclusions now that is really the crime.

They have done far more harm to the cause of mankind advancing to a more independant state than all the dictators in the world, past and present.

They should have focused on promoting the financial reasons for individual energy independance. They should have given there minds over to bettering the thchnologies so that you and I could pay once for the power and move on to devoting our lives to other even more esoteric endeavors that are the actual joybringing jems of life.

Oh wait I forgot, men would rather be evil than good.

Pear review. Hahahaha! That is funny.

Ron, I'm not sure if the pear crop is affected by Global Warming; I'll have to review

Gosh, I hope that means “How are you? Very great Blog”, the free translation tool was pretty vague. Stick, rod, club and great all from one character; didn’t Tiger Woods have trouble when his wife said he was Great and then smacked him with the Stick, Rod or Club?

Sounds like ceasar was put in charge of investigating ceasar. A predictable outcome, my position remains the same, leave us alone and move into the caves by yourselves warmists.

Starsplash said...

Ya seriously MK. No one is stopooing them from going back to the caves and wearing animal skins.
In fact I am curious to see how that is done. I really would like to see it.
Unfortunately some of them are vegetarians. No synthetics out there in the wild.

Stopooing? Stopooing......HAHAHAHAHAHA!
I know I could delete this and rewrite it, but where is the fun in that.
