Climategate – UK Met Office Proposes Climatologists Start Afresh
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Back in December the UK Met Office wanted to re-examine 160 years of climate data, which as Copenhagen was underway did not sit well with Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband, who were scared the AGW deniers would use the information to blaspheme against the
Church of Climatology flawed and corrupt science of AGW.
As the science was settled according to Brown, Obama, Rudd et al then the Met Office wanting to look again at the data would mean that science was far from certain.
In an event largely ignored by most MSM outlets, on Monday this week there was a meeting of 150 Climatologists at Antalya in Turkey where the Met Office proposed that Climate Science should start afresh and be subject to both public scruinity and a proper peer review process to replace the farce that was the old peer review process.
After the firestorm of criticism called Climate-gate, the British government’s official Meteorological Office has decided to give its modern climate data a do-over.
Among other things, its older data is maintained on a monthly basis, and the Met Office proposal says that is “grossly inadequate” to providing information on a daily and “sub-daily” basis.
A Met Office spokesman, Dave Britton, declared that the decision to re-do the data collection had been gestating for “a long time,” then added: “But it would be naïve to say that [the Climate-gate controversy] didn’t have an impact.” He added: “It’s not something that we can do alone.”
As a result, the proposal says, “we feel that it is timely to propose an international effort to reanalyze surface temperature data in collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which has the responsibility for global observing and monitoring systems for weather and climate.”
The new effort, the proposal says, would provide:
• “verifiable datasets starting from a common databank of unrestricted data”
• “methods that are fully documented in the peer reviewed literature and open to scrutiny;”
• “a set of independent assessments of surface temperature produced by independent groups using independent methods,”
• “comprehensive audit trails to deliver confidence in the results;”
• “robust assessment of uncertainties associated with observational error, temporal and geographical in homogeneities.”
The Met Office proposes that the new international effort to recalibrate temperature data start at a “workshop”‘ hosted by its Hadley Climate Research Centre, which maintains data in collaboration with the controversial Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at Britain’s East Anglia University. The Met Office would invite “key players” to start the “agreed community challenge” of creating the new datasets. A Met Office spokesman said the new effort would take about three years to complete, but would not estimate the cost. Hat tip to Fox News
This is no doubt that Gordon Brown is fully aware of the scam, and like Obama and Rudd, Brown is complicit in the wealth redistribution scheme and the back door attempts for one world unelected government. If they were not complicit in a scam then with so many questions over the science, the methods and the data any normal rational person would take a long hard look and decided that the science was not settled.
