Prof. Phil Jones: Klimadödel oder Datenfälscher?

Dieser aggressive Bursche mit den scharfen Krallen (Mäusebussard) wartet auf ein argloses Täubchen - auf eine fette Ringeltaube, genauer gesagt, die im Laub unter dem Schnee nach Bucheckern sucht (dieser Wald hat übrigens das "Waldsterben"-Geschwätz gut überlebt)

Klimadödel oder Datenfälscher?
- Prof. Phil Jones, Zentralfigur der IPCC-Welterwärmungsphantasten, macht eine überraschende Kehrtwende:
1. Die Quelldaten der berüchtigten „Hockeyschlägerkurve“ sind verschollen
2. Es gab seit 1995 keine globale Erwärmung
3. Erwärmungsperioden gab es bereits früher – ohne menschliches Zutun


Diese Meldung der Sonntagsausgabe der DAILY MAIL v. 14.2.10 (vgl. 14.2.) ist eine angenehme Überraschung!

- BBC 13.2.90 : Phil Jones, der Professor hinter der „Klimagate-Affaire“ gab zu, einige seiner Jahrzehnte alten Wetterdaten seien nicht ordentlich genug archiviert.
Das habe zu seiner Weigerung beigetragen, seine Rohdaten den Kritikern offenzulegen – eine Entscheidung, die er bedauere.
„ Phil Jones, the professor behind the "Climategate" affair, has admitted some of his decades-old weather data was not well enough organised.
He said this contributed to his refusal to share raw data with critics - a decision he says he regretted.
But Professor Jones said he had not cheated over the data, or unfairly influenced the scientific process.
He said he stood by the view that recent climate warming was most likely predominantly man-made.
But he agreed that two periods in recent times had experienced similar warming. And he agreed that the debate had not been settled over whether the Medieval Warm Period was warmer than the current period.
These statements are likely to be welcomed by people sceptical of man-made climate change who have felt insulted to be labelled by government ministers as flat-earthers and deniers. ...“

- Sehr merkwürdig, daß die FAZ dazu nichts bringt; hat Müller-Jung das abgefangen?

- Mr. Jones und seine Emails:
- Climate scientists shut out sceptics by turning down data requests
Hacked emails reveal systematic attempts to block FoI (Freedom of Information Act) requests from sceptics — and deep frustration at anti-warming agenda GUARDIAN 3.2.10 The emails reveal repeated and systematic attempts by him and his colleagues to block FoI requests from climate sceptics who wanted access to emails, documents and data. These moves were not only contrary to the spirit of scientific openness, but according to the government body that administers the FoI act were "not dealt with as they should have been under the legislation". ... Jones was laying out his uncompromising views on protecting "his" data. In a note to the prominent US climate scientist Michael Mann in February that year, he noted that "the two MMs", McIntyre and his co-author the Canadian environmental economist Ross McKitrick, "have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I'll delete the file rather than send to anyone." ... By 2008, the scientists had become used to dealing with, and usually rebuffing, requests for their data. But this demand for their emails heightened their alarm. Days after receiving the request, Jones sent one of the most damaging emails to emerge from the leak. He asked Mann: "Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith [Briffa] re AR4? Keith will do likewise. Can you also email Gene [Eugene Wahl, a paleoclimatologist at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado] and get him to do the same ... We will be getting Caspar [Ammann also from NCAR] to do the same." ... ' WUWT / m4gw / Climategate: The CRUtape Letters (Volume 1) (Paperback) Steven Mosher (Author), Thomas W. Fuller (Author)
