GLOBAL WARMING SCANDAL MAKES SCIENTIFIC PROGRESS MORE DIFFICULT, EXPERTS SAY
01 Dec 2009
The trustworthiness of the scientific community's global warming data pool is being called into question as the scandal over doctored data continues to unfold.
The trustworthiness of the scientific community's global warming data pool is being called into question as the scandal over doctored data continues to unfold.
The latest revelation came on Sunday with the publication of a report by The Sunday Times of London that scientists at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit in the United Kingdom confessed to throwing out most of the raw temperature data on which the theory of global warming is founded.
The loss of the data prevents other scientists from checking it to determine whether, in fact, there has been a long-term rise in global temperatures during the past century and a half.
"They are making scientific progress more difficult now," says Willie Soon, a physicist, astronomer and climate researcher at the solar and stellar physics division of the Harvard University-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. "This is a shameful, dark day for science," he said in an interview with FoxNews.com.
Soon also suggested that there has been systemic suppression of dissenting opinion among scientists in the climate change community, ranging from social snubs to e-mail stalking and even threats of harm.
