Just for reference: If I do a search for "Climategate" on Google search today I get 30,7 million results!
The great news about Climategate is that it has been confirmed that there have been major manipulation to the raw temperature data at CRU. But for some strange reason Swedish climate scientist also deny these findings..."move along, nothing to see here". This is truly amazing, or do they just don't understand the impact of the apparent fraud done at CRU?
Someone asked "but if the results and conclusions from CRU have been confirmed by other independent research teams, how have they been able to get the same results without manipulating the data?". The question is valid and I fear that the Climategate scandal will grow and many research teams will be affected.
At least the East Anglia University understands the problem and have started an investigation and also aim at publishing all raw data. The MET also plans to recalculate it's temperature series.
To give some references, I suggest looking at the following two blogs (there are daily updates and many interesting results):
- QED: Climategate proves there is no AGW. No wonder CRU hid the data and the decline.
- Jo Nova finds the Medieval Warm Period
My next request is for Swedish climate scientists to make a 180 degree turn and start looking into their own results based on the new raw temperature data. They have to do this really soon before the situation starts to get too embarrassing and before they run out of road to turn on...
