American Elephants

Damaged Credibility for the IPCC, CRU, NOAA, NASA, and American Journalism. by The Elephant's Child

Dr. Phil Jones, the head of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in Britain has stepped down in the ClimateGate scandal.  The CRU is one of the world’s three sources for  the temperatures that inform the world of the state of global climate.

This last week, Dr. Jones did a startling concessionary interview in which he admitted that there has been no global warming since 1995.   And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no statistically significant warming.  He conceded that there was a possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now.  The original raw data collected from weather stations around the world and analyzed by his unit may have been lost.  He admitted that his record keeping is not as good as it should be.

Months after the original exposure of emails and code from the CRU in the ClimateGate scandal, this was major news across the world.  The Washington Post, however, somehow neglected to mention it.  But that’s not all:

# No mention by the New York Times
# No mention by USA Today
# No mention by ANY major U.S. newspaper EXCEPT the Washington Times
# No mention by the Associated Press
# No mention by Reuters
# No mention by UPI
# No mention by ABC News
# No mention by CBS News
# No mention by NBC News
# No mention by MSNBC

CNN brought Dr. John Christy on air to talk about it.  This is not just a failure of the major climate reporting agencies, but a failure of American journalism.  Journalists in this country have been deeply involved in promoting alarm about global warming, and in suppressing any skeptical voice. Apparently that continues.

Once again journalists are more interested in promoting the world they prefer, than in reporting the news.  And they wonder why newspapers and news organizations are losing circulation.

Our Mass media is so corrupt it’s not funny.
Look at Dan Rather’s fabricated documents
slamming President George Bush.
Even when they were proved false , they were
still shown to be true.

Our media is celebrity obsessed.
Now that’s news …LOL
