Canadian Climatologist Tim Ball, PhD on Being Exonerated

November 23, 2009


Background on what the heck I’m talking about here and here and here. 
Nut ‘graf here: 

Hackers broke into the electronic files of one of the world’s foremost climate research centers this week and posted an array of e-mails in which prominent scientists engaged in a blunt discussion of global warming research and disparaged climate-change skeptics.

The skeptics have seized upon e-mails stolen from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in Britain as evidence that scientific data have been rigged to make it appear as if humans are causing global warming. The researchers, however, say the e-mails have been taken out of context and merely reflect an honest exchange of ideas.
University officials confirmed the data breach, which involves more than 1,000 e-mails and 3,000 documents, but said they could not say how many of the stolen items were authentic.
“We are aware that information from a server in one area of the university has been made available on public websites,” the statement says. “We are extremely concerned that personal information about individuals may have been compromised. Because of the volume of this information we cannot currently confirm what proportion of this material is genuine.”

If the material is genuine, I’m not sure Mann came make the claim that they’re taken out of context. I knew he and the rest of them would say that.
Back to Ball: Besides my show on Friday, here’s Ball’s interview on the noted skeptics’ website here. 
Check out my previous post about Dr. Ball being exonerated by this “man made global warming” scandal here. 
Then check here for my interview with Dr. Ball and Climatologist George Taylor and Chuck Wiese on the scandal.

Tell ’em where you saw it. Http://
