the lies and distortions of Governments around the world have been exposed.

Government has been telling lies to gain greater control over their people and find new ways to steal their money with lies and threats, fear and distortions.

YOU are not Guilty of causing Global warming, YOU are NOT responsible and Government has been stealing your money and spending it fraudulently buying dishonest results from corrupt scientists.

Know your true enemy read the available facts about YOUR Government and YOUR public Servants who YOU pay!

CRU's Climate Tricksters--Context is Everything

In the case of the apparently scandalous leaked e-mails from the

Climatic Research Unit in England, it's all a matter of getting the

context right. That's what Professor Michael E. Mann, the fabricator

of the celebrated hockey stick graph, told the Washington Post.

Here's what he said in Juliet Eilperin's story today:

Michael E. Mann, who directs the Earth System Science Center at

Pennsylvania State University, said in a telephone interview from

Paris that skeptics "are taking these words totally out of context to

make something trivial appear nefarious."

I agree with Professor Mann that the context in which something is

written or said or done is always critical. So let's look at the

context of a couple of these e-mails. Here's one that looks pretty

bad until you understand the context:

From: Ben Santer

To: P.Jones

Subject: Re: CEI formal petition to derail EPA GHG endangerment

finding with charge that destruction of CRU raw data undermines

integrity of global temperature record

Date: Fri, 09 Oct 2009 11:07:56 -0700

I’m really sorry that you have to go through all this stuff, Phil.

Next time I see Pat Michaels at a scientific meeting, I’ll be tempted

to beat the crap out of him. Very tempted.

Now let's put that in context. Dr. Ben Santer is a researcher at the

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California. In the

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Second Assessment Report

(1995), he was the lead author of a chapter and cleverly cut off the

early and later years of a dataset, so that the resulting graph would

show that global temperatures were only going in one direction in

recent years--rapidly upwards. In fact, temperatures were just as

high in earlier years and had declined in the most recent years, but

that data at both ends was cleverly deleted. This made the graph much

easier to understand correctly. So the first bit of context is that

Dr. Santer is an outstanding scientist of fine and upstanding


The next bit of context is that CEI--the Competitive Enterprise

Institute (which is where I work)--had filed a petition with the

Environmental Protection Agency to re-open a regulatory decision that

greenhouse gas emissions endanger public health and welfare on the

basis of an affidavit by Dr. Patrick Michaels of the Cato Institute.

Michaels explained that it had recently been revealed that Professor

Phil Jones, director of the CRU, had destroyed much of the original

raw data he used to compile the global mean temperature record. EPA

relied on the CRU global temperature record, but the lack of

underlying data means that the CRU record cannot be analyzed or

reproduced. That means that EPA must take Professor Jones's work on

trust, which of course is standard operating procedure in all good

climate research. Dr. Michaels is clearly just being disagreeable.

Everyone knows that we can trust Professor Jones's honesty and utter

scientific competence.

Now, what is Dr. Santer writing in this e-mail to Professor Jones?

Clearly this is the sort of high level scientific communication that

ordinary people often can't understand or de-code. It contains the

kind of innocent remark that tip-top scientists are always making.

And you can see that Dr. Santer is a real wit. I bet Professor Jones

couldn't stop laughing. The phrase "beat the crap out of him" is a

common pleasantry among this tip-top scientific crowd. It merely

means that the next time Dr. Santer runs into Dr. Michaels, he'll be

sure to greet him heartily and say something like, "Pat, my dear

esteemed colleague, it's so good to see you. Phil and I were just a

tiny bit annoyed that you would be so silly as to call attention to

the lack of data, but all is forgiven. You know that you can always

trust us."

So now that we know the context, we can plainly see that the

appearance--that Dr. Santer is a nasty bully who is too cowardly to

say in person to Dr. Michaels what he wrote in an e-mail--is

completely misleading. Dr. Santer is transparently a prince of a

fellow. Score one for Professor Michael Mann.

Here's another e-mail where the appearance looks bad. You've just got

to understand it in context:

From: Phil Jones

To: ray bradley, mann@xxxxx.xxx, mhughes@xxxx.xxx

Subject: Diagram for WMO Statement

Date: Tue, 16 Nov 1999 13:31:15 +0000

Cc: k.briffa@xxx.xx.xx ,t.osborn@xxxx.xxx

Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm,

Once Tim‘s got a diagram here we‘ll send that either later today


first thing tomorrow.

I‘ve just completed Mike‘s Nature trick of adding in the real


to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and


1961 for Keith‘s to hide the decline. Mike‘s series got the annual

land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH


N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for

1999 for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for


with data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998.

Thanks for the comments, Ray.



Now let's quickly put that in context before anyone draws the wrong

conclusions. For people who don't know any better, this looks like

Professor Phil Jones, director of the CRU, is saying that he has used

a "trick" that he got from Professor Michael Mann in order to "hide

the decline." First of all, we know that Professor Jones is a man of

high integrity (as well as high competence in his field), so he would

never do anything dishonest, sneaky, or duplicitous. Second, "trick"

is a technical term often employed by the cream of climate scientists.

It simply means employing a clever (or "slick") method to accomplish

some technical goal (in this case, "to hide the decline"). Anyone can

see that "trick" is a much shorter and more elegant way to say that.

And you've got to admire the verbal facility of these tip-top

scientists. They are as articulate and literate as they are

scientifically tip-top.

What is the clever method that Professor Jones learned from Professor

Mann? I think he is referring to the way Professor Mann constructed

his celebrated hockey stick graph. His proxy records showed flat

temperatures for the past thousand years, including the past century.

But everyone knows that temperatures have gone up rapidly in the past

few decades. That's what the surface temperature record compiled by

Professor Jones at CRU shows. And everyone knows that Professor

Jones's temperature record is irreproachable, even though he destroyed

the raw data. So what Professor Mann did was splice the last few

decades of surface temperature records onto his proxy record.

Voila!--the hockey stick. Over nine centuries of flat temperatures

and then rapid warming in the late twentieth century. What Professor

Mann did was simply make sure that ordinary people weren't misled by

the proxy data.

What does Professor Jones mean, then, by "to hide the decline"? I'm

not sure, but I expect he's just doing what Professor Mann did. He's

got some obviously misleading data, which he doesn't want people to

see so they won't get confused and draw the wrong conclusion. So he's

hiding it for our own good. This just shows what a chivalrous and

deeply caring man Professor Jones is.

There you have it. Context is everything. And you've got to hand it

to Professor Michael E. Mann. He sure knows his context.

Pennsylvania State University can be just as proud of him as the

University of East Anglia undoubtedly is of their Climatic Research

Unit and its head, Professor Phil Jones.

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.

The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arrogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship, and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP - both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.

The EU, due to the political idiocy and corruption of its undemocratic leaders, is now a net importer of food, no longer able to feed itself and with a decreasing range of over priced goods of little use to the rest of the world to sell with which to counter the net financial drain of endless imports.

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco - German - Italian axis of 1939 - 1945.
