So Phil Jones, the guy who invented the centerpiece of AlGore’s little PowerPoint presentation, has no fracking clue what happened to the records he based the climate scare on. He’s a (now) self-admitted disorganized piss-poor record keeper.
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’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
And to top it off, all that “settled science” now isn’t… settled, nor apparently even science.
Professor Jones departed from this consensus when he said: ‘There is much debate over whether the Medieval Warm Period was global in extent or not. The MWP is most clearly expressed in parts of North America, the North Atlantic and Europe and parts of Asia.
‘For it to be global in extent, the MWP would need to be seen clearly in more records from the tropical regions and the Southern hemisphere. There are very few palaeoclimatic records for these latter two regions.
‘Of course, if the MWP was shown to be global in extent and as warm or warmer than today, then obviously the late 20th Century warmth would not be unprecedented. On the other hand, if the MWP was global, but was less warm than today, then the current warmth would be unprecedented.’
Sceptics said this was the first time a senior scientist working with the IPCC had admitted to the possibility that the Medieval Warming Period could have been global, and therefore the world could have been hotter then than now.
NOW there’s debate. Not when the theory was proposed. Not when the theory was being presented to the world. Not when stick-up-the-ass Algore was embezzling billions in “carbon credits”. No, “the science was settled” until these phony eco-fanatics were caught cheating on the numbers.
