I mean, its the same man who claimed he "invented the internet" so if thats the kind of leadership the global warmers accept, then their data must
be skewed to say the least.
FYI: Al Gore did not claim to invent the internet, he said "I took initiative in creating the Internet". While that's pretty terrible wording,
invent and create mean two different things.

Whoa, whoa whoa. Dial that rage back in a bit littlebunny.
What was deleted? Absolutely nothing. We're talking about reams and reams of paper here. We're talking about spool after spool of data collected
here. We are not talking about dragging files to a recycle bin, we're talking about an institution trashing a bunch of physical data to save physical
space. A quarter of a century ago. A. Quarter. Of. A. Century. Twenty five years. It's human error. Plain and simple.
The trashing of this data (and make no mistake, that's what this is) is a travesty. It will call into question every single one of the findings that
this institution make with regards to this particular project at least. With that said, if they were looking to lie about the whole thing all along,
why explain that the data set is based on adjusted figures in the first place? Why not claim that it's the original data? At least they've been
honest enough to explain that the original data no longer exists with them. As others have pointed out, it presumably will still exist somewhere, so
all is not lost.
No one, and I mean no one in my government, (THE USA Government), had better attempt to pass any global climate change bills until this
absolute betrayal of the ENTIRE Science Community is resolved! If there is not a complete denunciation of this ENTIRE College and the Entire Climate
Change movement by every single Scientific field across the board, then the world will know without question these charlatans tried to destroy honest
scientific work around the world and have totally and completely destroyed our trust we have mistakenly given that entire community.
Whoa there, slow down a little. The "ENTIRE College"? Even every little part that doesn't deal with this particular project? The nursing programme?
The economics programme? Get a grip, take a step back from the keyboard and breathe.
We should demand a complete and total investigation. Every State in the United States should start their own investigation into this entire
sorted affair, I realize this happened outside the USA but their dishonesty affects the entire world... let alone how long has the entire Scientific
community been lying!! How can we trust these scientist about anything now, how can we trust them about anything?
Investigate what? How can they investigate this "sorted [sordid?] affair"? I was under the impression that most states in the US probably do already
look at climate change in some capacity. If not, they probably should be.
[blah blah blah blah...] and now this despicable act committed by that college... then the whole entire science community will be damned for a
very long time and rightfully so!!!

"Despicable act"? Really? Oh well, all's not lost
"Over 95% of the CRU climate data set concerning land surface temperatures has been accessible to climate researchers, sceptics and the public for
several years the University of East Anglia has confirmed."
Honestly, sometimes RAGING AGAINST THE MACHINE just doesn't work. Take your time.
