More Damning Climategate Revelations: Apparently CRU Selectively Used Russian Temperature Data

In a stunning new revelation, the Russian IAE (Institute of Economic Analysis) reported that the CRU, and other agencies that are trying to convince the world that man-made global warming is real have very selectively used temperature data from Russia. Although lots of data was available, it seems that the CRU and other agencies tended to use data from stations in urban (and therefore warm) areas of Russia. They also, apparently, tended to select incomplete data sets which tended to show warming, while ignoring data from other locations that did not support their global warming agenda.

According to an article in the December 16, 2009 edition of Rianovosti, while the data the CRU inexplicably “cherry picked” to push its agenda that some of the largest warming had occurred in Russia, the truth is that no significant warming has occurred in Russia, if all of the available data is used.

Climategate has already affected Russia. On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

While this is a fact that was known to many of us that have been studying the fraud of anthropogenic global warming for some time, it is certainly not something that was trumpeted by the main stream media, and it was certainly not something that was known by the general public.

The article later states that these revelations bring into question much of the other temperature data that has been disseminated by the CRU. (And, of course, by other similarly biased agencies, such as NASA.)

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations.

The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.

Global-temperature data will have to be modified if similar climate-date procedures have been used from other national data because the calculations used by COP15 analysts, including financial calculations, are based on HadCRUT research.

This is just further evidence that COP-15 and the whole subject of anthropogenic global warming has nothing to do with science, and everything to do with politics, money, transfer of wealth, and global governance and control over the lives of the people of the world.

If you want my personal prediction, I suspect we will see a complete and total release of all of the raw Russian temperature data. The CRU has been hiding the raw data for their “homogenized” data set for a long time under the guise of data privacy. That is, they have been saying that they do not own the original, unedited and unadjusted raw data, and thus they cannot release if for independent analysis. Recently, on only a select few raw data sets, sites like “Watts Up With That” have been demonstrating severe problems with the way that the CRU (and other agencies) have “adjusted” the raw data to get results that suit their political agenda; that is, results that show rising temperatures, where logical and sensible “adjustment of that data” shows no temperature increase, or much less temperature increase. Russia sells a lot of oil. Russia has a vested interest in showing that anthropogenic global warming is total bunk. Since some of the “biggest” temperature increases trumpeted by the CRU, NASA, and others has “apparently” happened over Russia, I suspect they will release the raw data for independent analysis, which may prove that AGW is nothing more than an Al Gore wet dream.
