BREAKING NEWS: Climategate 2.0: Thousands of new emails from ‘confirm great man-made global warming scare is not about science but about political activism’‘And as before, they show the ‘scientists’ at the heart of the Man-Made Global Warming industry in a most unflattering light. Michael Mann, Phil Jones, Ben Santer, Tom Wigley, Kevin Trenberth, Keith Briffa – all your favourite Climategate characters are here, once again caught red-handed in a series of emails exaggerating the extent of AGW, while privately admitting to one another that the evidence is nowhere near as a strong as they’d like it to be’

Update: Climategate 2.0: 5,000 New Emails Confirm Pattern of Deception and Collusion by Alarmists

Some key Climategate 2.0 points: ’1) Actively subverting FOIA intent — 2) Admitting a) Hockey stick flawed & Steve M. is right, b) hide decline was dishonest’ c) climate models are pretty bad, and d) cherry picking results like Japan hurricanes to emphasize a pre-ordained message — 3) Trying to manipulate (and probably succeeding) who gets to be IPCC author — 4) Trying to manage the message (PR concern) — 5) Viewing science results as helping or hurting “the cause” — Mann especially’

Celebrate Science! Warmist David Appell on ClimateGate 2.0: ‘Their impact will be devastating…My guess is that these are going to throw the science off-kilter for perhaps the rest of this decade’ — ‘On a second reading of the stolen UAE emails leaked today, and just reading the README file emails, these sound worse than I thought at first – their impact will be devastating’

Climategate 2.0: Skeptic Craig Loehle: ‘My favorite one so far is where they admit tuning the models to 20th Century climate…’‘…which in debates (e.g., one I had in person with Michael Schlesinger and others at Judith’s) is strenuously denied’

Climategate 2.0: Jones advises e-mail deletion to avoid FOIA

Jones: ‘I’ve been told that IPCC is above national FOI Acts. One way to cover yourself and all those working in AR5 would be to delete all emails at the end of the process’

Climategate 2.0: Dept of Energy involved in hiding temperature data? This won’t go over well with the Republican Congress — Phil Jones reveals the Department of Energy supports hiding temperature data: ‘Any work we have done in the past is done on the back of the research grants we get – and has to be well hidden. I’ve discussed this with the main funder (US Dept of Energy) in the past and they are happy about not releasing the original station data’

Climate Depot’s Morano statement: ‘It appears that Climategate 2.0 has arrived to drain what little life there was left in the man-made global warming movement’

Morano: ‘The new emails further expose the upper echelon of the UN IPCC as being more interested in crafting a careful narrative than following the evidence. The release of thousands of more emails is quite simply another victory for science’

‘Hockey stick’ debunking confirmed: Rob Wilson (?) confirms McIntyre’s debunking of Mann: ‘I thought I’d play around with some randomly generated time-series and see if I could ‘reconstruct’ n. hemisphere temps [...] The reconstructions clearly show a ‘hockey-stick’ trend. I guess this is precisely the phenomenon that Macintyre has been going on about’
