In some ways I agree that the data and emails that sit behind some of our most important scientific discoveries should be made available for all to
view, so that people can make their own judgement. However, I feel that personal emails, and views, not promoted in an open peer reviewed environment
should be published at all. Hackers, be warned, it's no different to rifling through someones drawers and stealing their letters and bank notes.
The "trick" wasn't a trick at all, it was a technique, used to remove bias.
The fact that scientists have achieved concensus should be applauded, global warming and climate change will not be stopped or halted by "god". A
myth put forward by deluded ancients to hoodwink 1000s of years of people in the aims of short term political goals.
We have a unique oppurtunity to tackle a problem that will effect the poorest and weakest in our societies, across the board, indiscriminately.
Short term gains through increased oil production will never match the costs of the worlds growing food requirement. It costs 1 gallon of oil to
produce 1 tonne of grain.
Yeah, hack into computers, try to discredit them, but unfortunately, it's you who will lose in the end, when the next hurricane hits, or temperature
Better hurry, there won't be any internet soon if the climate change predictions are true.
I would encourage you not to download the data from CRU, it's personal information, it is not peer reviewed. It causes upset and anguish in the
scientist involved who is a world class scientist, working hard for your benefit.
Be interesting to hear your thoughts on this... :S
