But Copenhagen is still on!!

Unbelievable, considering that Climategate just gets "better and better." Now, according to the Times of London, it seems global warming advocate "scientists" have admitted to ditching temperature data:

SCIENTISTS at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based.

It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years.

The admission follows the leaking of a thousand private emails sent and received by Professor Phil Jones, the CRU’s director. In them he discusses thwarting climate sceptics seeking access to such data.

In a statement on its website, the CRU said: “We do not hold the original raw data but only the value-added (quality controlled and homogenised) data.”

The CRU is the world’s leading centre for reconstructing past climate and temperatures. Climate change sceptics have long been keen to examine exactly how its data were compiled. That is now impossible.

Roger Pielke, professor of environmental studies at Colorado University, discovered data had been lost when he asked for original records. “The CRU is basically saying, ‘Trust us’. So much for settling questions and resolving debates with science,” he said.

And yet, with the science behind [man-made] global warming very much in doubt, The Messiah still is planning to head to Copenhagen for discussions on how curb GHGs (greenhouse gasses), many proposals which will affect economic growth. And, as yet locally, we haven't seen a peep from Perry the Energizer Bunny, who, normally at the drop of a hat, will charge in on a blog's comment section guns a'blazin' to defend to the death the "fact" that man-made global warming will kill us all.

UPDATE: In the interests of fairness and completeness, there's also a report (virtually at the same time as the Times story) via the UK Telegraph that the CRU has agreed to turn over its data in full for examination. Obviously, the two stories strongly conflict. Stay tuned.
