The science is scuttled: Abraham, Gleick, and Trenberth resort to libeling Spencer and Christy (via Watts Up With That?)

It’s still unbelievable, given what most of us have seen the “Global Warming” scientists pull off with the help of their leftist political friends, but here they’re at it yet again.

Via Ace and the UK Register [my bold];

But peer-reviewed publication in a journal has become a powerful propaganda weapon – the lead scientists who submit and review each others’ papers are often chapter editors for the IPCC’s assessment reports, the “bible” used by politicians to formulate climate policy. Several efforts where editors were pressured to keep dissenting views out of the prestigious journals have been documented.

“I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin [Trenberth] and I will keep them out somehow — even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!” vowed Dr Phil Jones, head of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. Jones and Trenberth were both co-ordinating lead authors on the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment report, published in 2007.

The head of research is not only actively suppressing any evidence contrary to the official leftist line, but admits it openly. Is it front page NYT?

I’ll have to check that.

No. It’s not.

Anthony Watts destroys the idiocy starting below. Read it and wonder why you bothered going to science class. You could’ve made it all up if it agreed with Al Gore.

The science is scuttled: Abraham, Gleick, and Trenberth resort to libeling Spencer and Christy NOTE: This will be a “sticky”  top post for awhile, new posts appear below this one. UPDATE: Josh weighs in with a new cartoon. I was hoping to have a quiet holiday weekend away from WUWT doing some household chores. Apparently that isn’t in the cards. Below, I have reposted an essay from Dr. Roger Pielke Senior regarding an opinion piece published in The Daily Climate attacking Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer for their ongoing work in satellite based measurement of the Earth’s temperature. Dr. Pielke does an excellent job of summarizing his rebuttal points, and I’ll point out that he’s used some very strong unconventional language in the title of his piece. Read More
