The Fudge-Factor In CRU’s Global Warming Data & How It Was Used
Filed under: — Robert Farrow @ 1:04 am

from Flopping Aces

The BBC show “Newsnight” aired a show a few days ago that delves into the code the Climatic Research Unit used to dupe and scare the masses:

Newsbusters has a partial transcript:

“This is the source code from the Climatic Research Unit,” Susan Watts, science editor at the BBC explained. “John Graham-Cumming is a software engineer. He’s not a skeptic on climate change, but he is shocked by what he’s seen in the programming. He compared it with the code in the same language written by NASA.”

Graham-Cumming criticized the CRU programming for its lack of professionalism and showed faults with it.

“Well, if you look at the NASA stuff, it’s really professional,” Graham-Cumming said. “You can look at it, you can see the history. If you look at — what’s done here by these alleged CRU files – it’s not the thing you’d expect to see in certainly a commercial industry. You would not see this sort of source code because it’s not clearly documented. There’s not audit history of what’s happened to it. So it would be below the standard in any commercial software. ”

According to the author of “The Geek Atlas,” the programmer even included steps to skip over errors, which shows some of the data analyzed by the East Anglia CRU is completely neglected.

“The programming language actually has a problem,” Graham-Cumming said. “And they put in some code to deal with that error. Unfortunately, in doing so they produced another error. And the upshot of this is the error occurs – the underlying error, they will skip over data that they’re trying to plot without any warning to the end user. So in some sense there is data that is being lost.”

Then we have the British MET office. They issued this statement a few weeks back:

A statement from the Met Office, Natural Environment Research Council and the Royal Society.

The UK is at the forefront of tackling dangerous climate change, underpinned by world-class scientific expertise and advice. Crucial decisions will be taken soon in Copenhagen about limiting and reducing the impacts of climate change, now and in the future. Climate scientists from the UK and across the world are in overwhelming agreement about the evidence of climate change, driven by the human input of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

As three of the UK’s leading scientific organisations, involving most of the UK scientists working on climate change, we cannot emphasise enough the body of scientific evidence that underpins the call for action now, and we reinforce our commitment to ensuring that world leaders continue to have access to the best possible science. We believe this will be essential to inform sound decision-making on policies to mitigate and adapt to climate change up to Copenhagen and beyond.

~~~

These emerging signals are consistent with what we expect from our projections, giving us confidence in the science and models that underpin them. In the absence of action to mitigate climate change, we can expect much larger changes in the coming decades than have been seen so far.

And now? (via QandOBlog)

The Met Office plans to re-examine 160 years of temperature data after admitting that public confidence in the science on man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails.

The new analysis of the data will take three years, meaning that the Met Office will not be able to state with absolute confidence the extent of the warming trend until the end of 2012.

~~~

The Met Office’s published data showing a warming trend draws heavily on CRU analysis. CRU supplied all the land temperature data to the Met Office, which added this to its own analysis of sea temperature data.

~~~

The Government is attempting to stop the Met Office from carrying out the re-examination, arguing that it would be seized upon by climate change sceptics.

Sounds great, if the government will let them re-examine the data. But I think they need more then just a re-examination. They need a complete scrub of the scientists responsible for this scandal. They’ve lost all credibility and I doubt anyone will have much confidence in the data they will produce….except of course those who are getting rich and/or gaining power due to AGW. How in the world can they believe that allowing the old crew of scientists who fudged the data, to re-examine that data, will restore confidence?

A day after Tony Dungy was largely skewered for saying he would not have drafted openly gay linebacker Michael Sam, the former NFL coach clarified his comments and provided context. Dungy issued a statement Tuesday in an attempt to explain what he called an "honest answer" to a question for a story that appeared Sunday in the Tampa Tribune.

Ravens LB Mosley eager to carry on tradition (The Associated Press)
C.J. Mosley completely understands the significance of becoming part of a defense that has a long-standing reputation of greatness. Mosley, the 17th overall pick in the 2014 draft, will seek this summer to become a starting linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens. Athletes who have starred at the position for Baltimore include Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Terrell Suggs and Bart Scott - who once wore the No. 57 now utilized by Mosley. The Ravens won two Super Bowls by playing rugged defense, and now Mosley is being asked to adhere to that custom.

Bills QB, coach differ on offense's performance (The Associated Press)
Bills quarterback EJ Manuel and coach Doug Marrone had widely conflicting assessments on how the offense performed on the third day of training camp. On one play, Woods made a quick cut only to have Manuel sail the ball well over his head.

Bills' sloppy offense concerns Marrone (The SportsXchange)
Progress is in the eye of the beholder for the Buffalo Bills, who held their first practice in pads on Tuesday before veterans for any of the other 31 NFL teams have even reported to training camp. Head coach Doug Marrone kept a sharp eye on the offense, which appeared sloppy as second-year quarterback EJ Manuel worked on his chemistry with an equally young receiving corps. "They finished strong, but it was not what we wanted," Marrone acknowledged of the offense. While Marrone wasn't pleased with the overall execution of the offense, Manuel thought it was a productive practice.

Rex, Jets hoping new pieces solve playoff puzzle (The Associated Press)
New playmakers, fresh-faced rookies and a rejuvenated Rex Ryan. They all have the New York Jets feeling pretty optimistic heading into training camp, with their sights set on ending a three-year playoff drought - the longest since owner Woody Johnson bought the team in 2000. Despite having inconsistent rookie quarterback Geno Smith start every game last season and an offense that lacked big-time playmakers, the Jets finished 8-8. New York added running back Chris Johnson, wide receiver Eric Decker, quarterback Michael Vick, and a dozen draft picks - many of whom, including safety Calvin Pryor, tight end Jace Amaro and cornerback Dexter McDougle, could see significant playing time.

NFL Camp Preview: Ravens hope to add deep pass to offense (The SportsXchange)
As the Baltimore Ravens prepare for training camp at their facility in Owings Mills, their goals remain unchanged. Upgrade the passing game, rebuild the running game, protect quarterback Joe Flacco and identify a starting right offensive tackle. The Ravens also want to improve their deep passing game. One year after throwing 11 touchdown passes and no interceptions on passes 20 yards or greater, Flacco had one touchdown and nine interceptions on those type of passes last season.
