Climate Gate Humour and Global Warming in the 1700's

Gallier has been kindly leaving some very interesting links, concerning what is known as
"Climate-Gate". I am bringing them forward to share.

First off, some humour, with a point. You will laugh and think.

If Climate “Researchers” Became Doctors
Just an excerpt below, read it all at the link.

Step up on the scale, Mr. Naughton.”

“Sure, Doctor. I’m looking forward to seeing this myself.”

“Let’s see … slide this over a bit … hmm, pretty bad. Your weight is up again.”

“Uh … Doctor, you mind getting your foot off the scale?”

“Oh, okay.”

“So … you want to weigh me again now?”

“Sorry, I’ve already recorded the results. You can step down now.”


“Just as I predicted. Man-made body enlarging. I told you to stop consuming so much animal fat.”


UK Met office announces a do-over: entire global temperature series – 160 years worth

The Met Office plans to re-examine 160 years of temperature data after admitting that public confidence in the science on man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails.

The new analysis of the data will take three years, meaning that the Met Office will not be able to state with absolute confidence the extent of the warming trend until the end of 2012.

The Government is attempting to stop the Met Office from carrying out the re-examination, arguing that it would be seized upon by climate change sceptics.

I read in the comment section that The Met Office, is another government organization, that already works closely with East Anglia. One would hope for an honest re-examination. Judging by some of the comments?? Maybe that will be to much to ask for, but time will tell, 3 years of time.


I found this quite interesting, a link off of the story Gallier left.

Climate clues from Captain's Logs

No, not Captain Kirk's logs. ;)

Britain's great seafaring tradition is to provide a unique insight into modern climate change, thanks to thousands of Royal Navy logbooks that have survived from the 17th century onwards.

The logbooks kept by every naval ship, ranging from Nelson’s Victory and Cook’s Endeavour down to the humblest frigate, are emerging as one of the world’s best sources for long-term weather data.

This is better then 200 years worth of climate data.

A preliminary study of 6,000 logbooks has produced results that raise questions about climate change theories.

One paper, published by Dr Dennis Wheeler, a Sunderland University geographer, in the journal The Holocene, details a surge in the frequency of summer storms over Britain in the 1680s and 1690s. Many scientists believe storms are a consequence of global warming, but these were the coldest decades of the so-called Little Ice Age that hit Europe from about 1600 to 1850.

Wheeler and his colleagues have since won European Union funding to extend this research to 1750. This shows that during the 1730s, Europe underwent a period of rapid warming similar to that recorded recently – and which must have had natural origins.

Lots of good reading in all those articles.....


  1. Hello Penny,
    here I have another (iho) gem of a blog entry. It's not directly related to the subjects you treat usually or about climategate specificallty, but the underlying message is bigger than that.

  2. Hi Gallier, or good morning?
    Well that sounds interesting?
    And of course has piqued my curiousity. Who's blog?

  3. Good morning is a bit late now (it's 2 pm here) but you seem to go up early.
    Whose blog? It's Dr. Kurt G. Harris blog on paleolithic nutrition. I'm discovering his blog as I often read a lot of good comments of him on my usual nutrition blogs where I roam, but never thought of checking out his. I do it now and think that I should have done it earlier, as he is a good competent writer and thinker. If he's on our über-conspiracies I don't know and I don't care as there is often information that is worthwile even if one does not agree 100% with a person (I still think that McGowan is important even if I'm persuaded that his Apollo series was/is bunk).

  4. Hi Gallier

    Is this the right place?

  5. Hee hee hee

    That was funny, thanks for the laugh.

    As far as the logbooks go, very useful indeed. Recall also the names of some streets and districts in England - Vine street for example. It's been a very long time since wine worthy grapes were grown in England! And don't forget the Vikings in both Greenland and our own East coast!

    Oh and all those paintings from the Little Ice Age as well.

    What I find appalling is the MSM's deflection, misdirection and outright lies about this whole issue.

    I was listening to Bob McDonald - quirks and quarks yesterday and I almost barfed, I DID scream "Lies!!!" at the radio!


  6. Very Funny Post.

    The MET office will come back and say the warming is much worse than originally recorded before ClimateGate 2009 in 2012 and that the scientists at the UN were working for the oil companies trying to cover it it up.

    Then if that doesn't work, the Pentagon dusts off their flying saucers and little green men and we have another "war of the worlds".

  7. Gallier: What do you feel the underlying message is there?
    And how is is relevant to the bigger picture.
    Because I am not seeing the connection, but I am unsure along what lines you are thinking, so fill in the blanks for me?

    As for Dave McGowan,since I am a beleiver we all can have our own opinions and on the NASA stuff, you and I will have to agree to disagree.

    I am still think that Dave has done great work and will continue to do great work.

    Personally, I am hoping he does put a book together on the Laurel Canyon stuff.

    Or does some follow up work on Programmed to Kill.

    But Dave does what he does.

  8. Hey Maggie and Doug.

    Yah, I liked the humourous take on that. Doctor get your foot off of the scale, to late I have already recorded your weight?

    As for the captains logs, found this bit interesting also

    " It is commonly believed that hurricanes form in the eastern Atlantic and track westwards, so scientists were shocked in 2005 when Hurricane Vince instead moved northeast to hit southern Spain and Portugal.

    Many interpreted this as a consequence of climate change; but Wheeler, along with colleagues at the University of Madrid, used old ships’ logs to show that this had also happened in 1842, when a hurricane followed the same trajectory into Andalusia"

    Doug an alien invasion just in time for 2012!
    How timely and perfect ;)

  9. Ok, I'm a bit of a hurry here (you know children, school then work) I will try to explain my thoughts today at work. It's true that I know what I think but you do not, sorry for that you're no mind readers ;-)

  10. thanks Gallier, looking forward to it.

  11. Ok, I owe you an explanation but my problem is, I don't know how to put it or explain it. If I could I would write on my blog, but I can't.

    So let me copy here one of the readers email of WRH today that is a quite accurate abstract of my world views:

    see next post for the reader email
    To that, I can only add the nutritional/medical lies (cholesterole is dangerous, saturated fat is artery clogging, grains are healthy). The link to PaleoNu was to bring the focus also on that aspect. Nothing more.
    Sorry for that cheap cop out but I have real difficulties to write (in any of my languages).

  12. READER: Repeatedly inculcating the following active hoaxes and lies establishes a false perceptual framework in the general population, which serves as a basis for mass behavioral control and public policy by élites.

    * Man Made Global Warming - especially rising temperatures, rising sea levels, impending doom, CO2 as a dangerous gas

    * The HolyHoax - especially mass execution gas chambers in Auschwitz and exactly six milion Jews deliberately exterminated; this hoax is so profitable for Zionists that exposing it has been banned in some countries

    * IX-XI ("9/11") - much has already been written about this "false flag" Zionist Operation during the past eight years; characterizing this as "an inside job", however, is misleading because it detracts from the outside Israeli involvement; this ties in well with the "War on Terror" hoax (below) but is sufficiently spectacular to deserve separate mention

    * "War on Terror" - an invention by Binyamin Netanyahu to engage in perpetual war against Israel's adversaries and enemies, simultaneously used as a pretext by governments to infringe on individual freedoms; the Osama bin Laden still alive myth, Saddam's weapons of mass destruction, London subway bombing, Madrid train bombing, and numerous alleged "suicide bomber" incidents in Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan could be regarded as separate hoaxes in themselves but are invoked under this

    * HIV/AIDS Virus - the existence of the putative HIV has not been proven, the tests are bogus, if it exists at all it is harmless and cannot be transmitted sexually; AIDS is merely a politically defined "syndrome" to include as many symptoms as possible, most western gay men have died from AZT poisoning, African AIDS is a redefinition of diseases people have been dying from for decades

    * Jewish People Descended from Land of Israel - the English language book by Schlomo Sand, exposing this myth, was released in October 2009; the stated premise for establishing Israel (return of the Jewish People from Exile) is thus a fraud

    * Peak Oil - oil is not a so-called "fossil fuel" but has abiotic origins; since it gets produced anew perpetually in the depths of the earth there is no scarcity

    * Lockerbie Bombing Masterminded by Arabs - the bombing was an ad hoc "false flag" act of terror by Zionist operatives in response to the formal US recognition of the PLO to send a message to Washington

    * Swine Flu Epidemic - as has been the case in the HIV/AIDS hoax, this mass scare has served to enhance the profits of the pharmaceutical industry

    * Obama Presidential Eligibility - no conclusive evidence has been presented to confirm Barry Obama's eligibility to serve as president, but plenty of indications suggest otherwise; the ongoing stonewalling to release basic documentation to prove eligibility is highly suspicious; allegedly born in Mombasa, Kenya, exposing ineligibilty is a constant threat by elites to keep Obama in line; many who once supported an Obama candidacy are ashamed to admit they were conned

    Note - There is plenty of evidence to prove that a moon landing by astronauts occurred. Denying this serves as a popular rhetorical retort for people who wish to obfuscate matters when confronted with the hoaxes mentioned above.

    The backgrounds behind other major events (Pearl Harbor Attack, Kennedy Assassinations, USS Liberty Attack, MLK Assassination) have long been widely exposed and are not being repeated in the media on an ongoing basis, so for that reason they are not mentioned above.

    The machinations of the Federal Reserve bank are sufficiently well understood by educated people to not necessarily be regarded as a hoax of the order of magnitude of those cited above.

  13. Gallier, sorry, I lost you in the blog shuffle....thankfully all replies show up in my e-mail.

    I see that site does indeed cover alot of the topics discussed in these parts...

    I am going to book mark it now, and also I think you do well, with your writing, but, if you are not entirely comfortable no apologies necessary on the cut and paste.
    You may be interested in the link I put up to Gnostic Media today,c heck it out Gallier.
