The words of classic comedian Oliver Hardy: “Well, here’s another nice mess you’ve gotten me into” could be Dr. Phil Jones’s lament to himself, as he fires another torpedo into the listing hulk of Glowbull Warming. The Chief will always refer to Dr. Phil Jones, or Dr. P.J., not just “Dr. Jones”, to avoid demeaning the original “Dr. Jones” (Indiana Jones)
The bullet point highlights:
* Data for vital ‘hockey stick graph’ has gone missing
* There has been no global warming since 1995
* Warming periods have happened before – but NOT due to man-made changes
The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.
Dr. P.J. should note that it’s easier to do this when telling the truth…that way one only has to remember the ACTUAL facts, not the always more complex web of phony “facts”.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
This must be the upper academic version of the traditional “My dog ate my homework!” excuse
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
But…he can pull together “data”, supposedly going back thousands of years in some cases, and use it to project global climate patterns for hundreds of years into the future…but we can’t accurately predict climatic conditions for this year or the next.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
The Glowbull Warmists need to use that hockey stick to make like a goalie and “Get the puck out!”
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
Wonder what his first clue was…no doubt the discovery that medieval times was deficient in SUV’s.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
This gives a whole new perspective on the term “junk science”!.
Of course the boneheads in the Baraq Hussein administration are still genuflecting at the Great Gaean Altar, and proclaiming their determination to pursue “cap and tax” by hook or by crook.
