Climategate has been a very big story since November 2009 and with each passing day there are more and more revelations about the hoax. From a bloggers perspective this means there are not enough hours in the day to comment fully on each new story, so here are some links to some of todays breaking stories:
Top climatologist finds 40% of British government climate costs report “fraudulent”:
“The Stern Review Report of the UK government also relied on that paper as the sole basis for its projections of increasing damage from extreme events. In fact as much as 40% of the Stern Review projections for the global costs of unmitigated climate change derive from its misuse of the Muir-Wood et al. paper.” More at Climategate.com
China’s most senior negotiator on climate change says more research needed to establish whether warming is man-made:
China’s most senior negotiator on climate change said today he was keeping an open mind on whether global warming was man-made or the result of natural cycles The Guardian
Professor Andy Pitman’s laughable excuses “why the sceptics are winning”:
“Sceptics are so well funded, and so well organised” – so the $70 billion or so thrown at alarmist scientists to try to prove AGW since the mid 1990s (which, by the way, they still haven’t managed to do) is just loose change, I guess? Are you admitting that the alarmists are a disorganised rabble? More laughable excuses at Australian Climate Madness
Latest Peer-Reviewed Research Uses Bristlecones To Confirm Medieval Warming In California Mountains:
This study is based on a new and much larger sample of bristlecone trees. The previous bristlecone research that was used in all the prior hockey stick studies dates back to the 1980s. There has been no other explanations as to why the new data has significantly different results from the original bristlecone study. (This new study is not a multiproxy, but a study based solely on bristlecones.)
Multi-proxy research authors who are paid to find global warming continue to use old bristlecone data from the 80’s for their new research instead of this latest bristlecone data. Surprised?

The Copenhagen summit was a failure despite efforts to hype what was achieved, the scope of the failure is being amply demonstrated by banks and investors who are rapidly pulling out of the Carbon trading market. This will be a major blow to organised crime in the EU who have running a €5 billion VAT fraud on Carbon trading.
When the money pulls out out of a project the end must surely be in sight and this looks now to the case with Carbon trading.
Carbon financiers have already begun leaving banks in London because of the lack of activity and the drop-off in investment demand. The Guardian has been told that backers have this month pulled out of a large planned clean-energy project in the developing world because of the expected fall in emissions credits after 2012.
Banks had been scaling back their plans to invest in carbon markets before Copenhagen. Fewer new clean energy projects need to be financed as, because of the recession, there are fewer global emissions to offset. The price of carbon credits has also fallen, while plans to introduce national trading schemes, particularly in the US and Australia, remain uncertain.
Despite constant denials about Climategate and setteled science the money wont hang around for a lost cause and Anthropogenic Global Warming is a lost cause.
