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!
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

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
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
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

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
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.

for all my contact details & Blogs:
‘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.
