Science depends on good quality of data. It also relies on replication and sharing data. But the last couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations. Computer hackers have obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England. These e-mails, which have now been confirmed as real, involved many researchers across the globe with ideologically similar advocates around the world. They were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global warming claims. The academics here also worked closely with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.There's one minor correction needed in the above paragraph, the size of the emails is 60 megabytes not 160.
As a proud data analyst myself, I am particularly sensitive to the cases of playing games with data. I think altering, messaging, creating, hiding, or destructing scientific data in scientific studies represent pure shame and even evil. All scientist should be outraged by the evildoings disclosed in the Climate Research Unit. I can excuse Algore because he's an idiot, knows nothing about science. But these people are trained scientist, they have no excuses and they should be all kicked out of science once and for all!
On the brighter side, however, these evil actions clearly and unmistakably demonstrated that their contention is wrong since they can only resort to fraudulent falsehoods to substantiate them, so there is really no anthropogenic global warming what so ever. UN IPCC should now be summarily abolished or disbanded!
