CRU Hack Info Dump

I’ve looked at some of the info in the CRU data dump and have concluded that the situation is much worse that I have previously envisioned..

All results, each and every number, to be used to set public policy must be Independently Reviewed and Verified. This is the world-wide operating standard for all other decisions, without exception, that have a potential to effect the health and safety of the public.

The climate change community remains the sole exception to this standard. The very organizations that continue to insist that it be exempt from this requirement have now been shown to have fatally flawed the very system that they propose be used.

Maybe we’ll see a Carbon Regulatory Agency developed and implemented by some progressive governments.

  1. Hi Dan,

    I strongly agree. The validation and verification processes you describe on your (old?) blog are the scientific/engineering consensus. They are straightforward and conventional. They are even self-correcting and self-improving.

    Why this climate change clique has chosen an inferior political/activist approach to building confidence in the climate science and climate models is beyond me. These are not stupid people. I am left wondering what I might be missing. Is my faith that diligent IV&V inexorably builds confidence misplaced?

    • Hi George, fancy seeing you here!.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s noticed the lack of rigorous V&V in the climate science community, I guess with you and me and Dan that makes 3, consensus here we come!
