Nature Did Not Read the Hacked Emails

with 13 comments

Climategate.  Exactly one year ago, on November 17, 2009, email messages and other computer files were illegally stolen from computers located at the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU).  These emails and files were then leaked to the Internet in a blatant attempt to derail international climate talks at the COP-15 Copenhagen Climate Conference.  Two crimes were committed that day: 1)  Emails were stolen and 2)  Scientists were wrongly put on trial in the press and the blogosphere.

These emails were spun by skeptics of man-made global warming as somehow proving that global warming is a hoax and that scientists were controlling what science gets published.  Climategate was billed as the final nail in the coffin of anthropogenic [manmade] global warming (AGW).  What has happened in the year following Climategate?

  1. CO2 is still increasing
  2. Climate is still warming
  3. Ice is still melting
  4. Severe weather increased
  5. No journal articles have been published overturning AGW but there have been many supporting AGW
  6. The accused scientists have been exonerated by many different investigations
  7. Claims that the exonerations were a whitewash are simply hogwash
  8. Climategate coverage was unfair
