ClimateGate Emails Damning

The left is going to perform painful contortions to make the public believe the pilfered emails of climate scientists are being released out of context so the “consensus” that climate change is man-made remains sound.
That “consensus” is now very shaky.
It’s no use pretending that this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them.
— George Monbiot, UK Guardian columnist, environmental activist
We’re dealing with an incomplete understanding of the way the earth system works… When we come to the last few years when we haven’t seen a continuation of that (warming) trend we don’t understand all of the factors that create earth’s climate… We just don’t understand the way the whole system works… See, these people work with models, computer modelling. So when the computer modelling and the real world data disagree you’ve got a very interesting problem… Sure for the last 10 years we’ve gone through a slight cooling trend.
— Tim Flannery, Australian mammalogist, palaeontologist, and environmental and global warming activist
So, with a straight face they now face the prospect of looking either like willing accomplices in the global warming-climate change scam, or clueless dupes (not a good thing when you bill yourself as an expert).
Let’s have some fun.
Email samples, shall we…?
Manipulation of evidence:
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.
Private doubts about whether the world really is heating up:
The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.
Suppression of evidence:
Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith re AR4?
Keith will do likewise. He’s not in at the moment – minor family crisis.
Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his new email address.
We will be getting Caspar to do likewise.
Let’s see just how good climate change-global warming believers are at lying about lies.
Hint, they aren’t that good.
