The Following is from Not Evil Just Wrong

A hacker broke into the computer at the University of East Angila's Climate Research Unit (Hadley CRU) and published over a thousand confidential emails on the internet. (Hat tip: Telegraph UK and Watts Up With That).
Some of the contents include:
- Manipulation of scientific evidence
- Doubts about global warming
- Suppression of evidence
- Fantasies of violence against prominent Climate Skeptic scientists
- Tactics on how to remove dissenting scientists from the peer review process
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.
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.
Fantasies of violence against prominent Climate Skeptic scientists
Next time I see Pat Michaels at a scientific meeting, I’ll be tempted to beat
the crap out of him. Very tempted.
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.
Attempts to disguise the inconvenient truth of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP):
……Phil and I have recently submitted a paper using about a dozen NH records that fit this category, and many of which are available nearly 2K back–I think that trying to adopt a timeframe of 2K, rather than the usual 1K, addresses a good earlier point that Peck made w/ regard to the memo, that it would be nice to try to “contain” the putative “MWP”, even if we don’t yet have a hemispheric mean reconstruction available that far back….

THE 35 BLATANT ERRORS OR LIES IN ‘AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH’
1. Sea level “rising 6 m”
Even the IPCC’s maximum estimate is a mere 59cm… In the year 2100.
2. Pacific islands “drowning”
They aren’t. The sea levels around the Maldives haven’t changed for 1250 years. Same goes for Vanuatu.
3. Thermohaline circulation “stopping”
In reality, it is strengthening.
4. CO2 “driving temperature”
It is a clear and well accepted fact that temperature drives CO2 levels.
5. Snows of Kilimanjaro “melting”
Temperature at the summit never rises above freezing. Most of the melt occured before 1936.
6. Lake Chad “drying up”
It also dried up in 8500BC, 5500BC, 1000BC and 100BC. Where was our carbon-polluting human industry then?
7. Hurricane Katrina “man made”
Maximum hurricane wind speed and number of hurricanes has not increased.
8. Polar bears “dying”
Four bears died in a storm. Four. Measly. Bears. Meanwhile, there are 25000 polar bears today compared to 5000 in 1940.
9. Coral reefs “bleaching”
It was caused by an unusual El Nino pattern, not global warming.
10. 100 ppmv of CO2 “melting mile-thick ice”
Gore overstates the effect of CO2 ten times greater than even the IPCC’s highest estimate.
11. Hurricane Caterina “manmade”
Air temperatures in the area were the coldest in 25 years, not warmest.
12. Japanese typhoons “a new record”
Tropical cyclone frequency has fallen in the past 50 years.
13. Hurricanes “getting stronger“
They haven’t in 60 years.
14. Big storm insurances losses “increasing”
Insured losses in hurricane-prione areas were lower in 2005 than 1905.
15. Mumbai “flooding”
There’s been no increase in rainfall over 48 years.
16. Severe tornadoes “more frequent”
Severe tornadoes have fallen in frequency for the last 50 years. Tropical storms are also at the lowest frequency in decades.
17. The sun “heats the Arctic ocean”
The ocean emits more heat than it receives from the sun.
18. Arctic “warming fastest”
It’s actually 1 degree cooler now than in 1940.
19. Greenland ice sheet “unstable”
The ice sheet did not break up during the last three times when the temperature was 5 degrees hotter than today.
20. Himalayan glacial melt waters “failing”
The snow melt which provides water has not decreased in 40 years.
21. Peruvian glaciers “disappearing”
For the past 10,000 years the Peruvian ‘glacier’ region has been mostly ice free.
22. Mountain glaciers worldwide “disappearing”
Human CO2 output has had no effect on the already-present glacier shortening trend.
23. Sahara desert “drying”
In the past 25 years, the Sahara shrunk by 300,000 square kilometres due to increased rainfall.
24. West Antarctic ice sheet “unstable”
Antarctic ice is at its thickest in nearly 28 years.
25. Antarctic Peninsula ice shelves “breaking up”
Gore concentrates on the 2% of Antarctica that is experiencing some warming, while conciously neglecting to mention the 98% of Antarctica that is cooling.
26. Larsen B Ice Shelf “broke up because of ‘global warming’”
The ice shelfs have been breaking up since 10,000 years ago.
27. Mosquitoes “climbing to higher altitudes”
The graph says it all: Wrong.
28. Many tropical diseases “spread through ‘global warming’”
None of the diseases quoted are tropical, none are affected by increasing temperature, and some even cause more harm at colder temperatures.
29. West Nile virus in the US “spread through ‘global warming’”
West Nile virus flourishes in any climate, from desert to ice.
30. Carbon dioxide is “pollution”
Forests are thriving due to the increasing CO2 levels.
31. The European heat wave of 2003 “killed 35,000″
Cold snaps kill people, but the IPCC does not include the number of lives that would be saved due to less cold weather.
32. Pied flycatchers “cannot feed their young”
A few tens of kilometres north, and there is no notable difference.
33. Gore’s bogus pictures and film footage
Gore plays fast and loose with falsely used images.
34. The Thames Barrier “closing more frequently”
It is closed to retain tidal water in the Thames.
35. “No fact…in dispute by anybody.”
Do I even have to mention these?
CONCLUSION: It’s clear that Al Gore and his film have got the facts totally wrong, reversed, upside-down and etc on almost every count. An Inconvenient Truth is truly an amazing piece of bullcr@p, and it’s even more amazing that anybody still trusts anything it and Gore have to say.
