American Thinker’s brilliant article begins:
The scientists at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU), and the people who funded them, did not know how utterly useless CRU was. All the research done at CRU made no difference whatsoever to the “science” of global warming. Just ask other scientists and global warming alarmists. Heck, ask CRU.
You think CRU was the only source of raw thermometer data going back 150 years? Nope there are two others. So who cares if CRU “lost” theirs?
You think CRU did science that showed warming trends? So what? Their conclusions were the same as everyone else’s. Phil Jones, head of CRU, said that.
“Our global temperature series tallies with those of other, completely independent, groups of scientists working for Nasa and the National Climate Data Centre in the United States, among others. Even if you were to ignore our findings, theirs show the same results.”
In fact, all that nonsense about thermometers, stations, adjustments, tree rings, ice cores, etc. – all totally useless. Just look at the polar ice caps: one of them is shrinking. Eugene Robinson, Megan McArdle and Katie Couric said that.
In fact, we don’t need any data whatsoever. If there is even the slightest chance that the world might end if the alarmists are right, then the correct policy is to spend humongous gobs of money from now on. Thomas Friedman said that. According to Mr. Friedman, it doesn’t matter at all if the science is “unequivocal”; we need only be 1% sure.
