How Much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Bet Some Of This Dosh Goes Labours' Way!







Amid the thousands of files apparently misappropriated from Britain’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) last week sit two documents on the subject of the unit�s funding. One is a spreadsheet (pdj_grant_since1990.xls) logging the various grants CRU chief PD Jones has received since 1990. It lists 55 such endowments from agencies ranging from the U.S Department of Energy to NATO and worth a total of 13,718,547 pounds or approximately 22.6 million USD. I guess cooking climate data can be an expensive habit, particularly for an oft-quoted and highly exalted U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) chief climatologist.

The Met Office is strenuously trying to pretend that its connections with CRU are tenuous. It's all unravelling.

The Met Office has removed its own Hadley Research Centre website, possibly because it emphasises collaboration with the newly disgraced UEA CRU.

I've just accessed the Hadley website, so maybe it was a temporary problem.

At the bottom of the home page is this little gem:

"An independent review of the Met Office Hadley Centre commissioned by Defra and the MoD in 2007 concluded that:

'It is beyond dispute that the Met Office Hadley Centre occupies a position at the pinnacle of world climate science and in translating that science into policy advice.'"

The Met Office, never knowingly accurate!

If they're using information from the UEA CRU I can fully understand why!

I've just been reading a software programmers blog - he has been looking (in some depth) at the code used in one of the leaked files. To say it is poorly written is putting it mildly....
