From the Berkeley Earth Project


“Climategate” accusations proven false by new study by the Berkeley Earth funded by the same people who funded the climate change skeptics.  Data from 40,000 weather stations was checked and: “What came out was a graph remarkably similar to those produced by the world’s three most important and established groups, whose work had been decried as unreliable and shoddy in climate skeptic circles.”  Skeptics claimed that the data was inaccurately compiled and did not reflect an upward trend in global warming.  “Our biggest surprise was that the new results agreed so closely with the warming values published previously by other teams in the USand the UK,” said Professor Muller.

True or not, it is too late.  The false accusations have been accepted as true by many who wish them to be true.  A great number of people have not closed their minds to anything scientists say and choose to believe that climate change warnings are a conspiracy formulated by greenies who use scientific evidence to further their own agenda  We all k now of instances where a false accusation gets wide coverage and a reputation is ruined.  Few read the news that the accusation was false and malicious.  It is too late to regain a good reputation once it has been drug through the mud.  Global warming is old news now and very few wish to ditch the tragic belief in permanent economic growth and prosperity.  People in countries such as Greece are turning violent when their government attempts to cut wages and services to the poor whilst the rich get richer.  Meanwhile, glaciers and polar ice melt at an ever expanding rate, ocean levels rise, large populations are threatened, erratic weather conditions expand and CO2 levels continue to rise.  It is past time to stop arguing about what is precisely causing it and simply do something to arrest the damage.
