Remember the spectacular two and a half meter wide ClimateGate Timeline from 4 weeks ago? We got hundreds of emails from all around the world in response. Some people made giant printed versions and sent us photos, while others requested printed copies. Mohib Ebrahim originally created this project for his own edification, but then decided to release it. When a first draft was published last December, many readers had excellent suggestions for improving it. So behind the scenes, Mohib and four more volunteers went to work. Thanks especially to Curt for revising and editing the entire timeline (as he’d done with the introduction), and to Tom, Stuart and Gene for help proofreading. It’s really been a monumental task and now, finally, for all those waiting for the chance to print and learn, here is the official edition. All pictures and links have been updated.
Below, see Brenton’s dedicated effort to put together the poster at home.
This is One Spectacular Poster of ClimateGate Covering 3 Decades
You have to see this up close to believe it. Look up close and admire the detail while you despair at how long science has been going off the rails. To better appreciate the past and what was exposed by the CRU emails, the Timeline chart consolidates and chronologically organizes the information uncovered and published about the CRU emails by many researchers along with some related contextual events. That the chart exists at all is yet another example of how skilled experts are flocking in to the skeptics’ position and dedicating hours of time pro bono because they are passionately motivated to fight against those who try to deceive us.
I’ve established a permanent home page for Mohib’s beautiful poster that will host the latest updates in PDF and GIF format. There are also printable versions in A4, A3, A2, A1, A0, US Letter and US Tabloid for those of you (like me) who need printed versions on which scribble, and scrawl exclamation marks.
It’s hard to do the full Timeline justice on a small screen, but here are a few select screen shots so you have some idea of what this document shows. Click on the images just to pop-up readable close-ups of a few choice spots. One day, in historical exhibitions, I hope this chart will be exhibited to help people dissect just how the global warming scam grew, and to help teach children what to look for, to minimize the damage from the next exaggerated claim of catastrophe before it grows so large.
Climatologists had no idea what the temperature would be in the year 2000
NEW IN THIS VERSION: Carbon economics and data fiddling kick in soon after the IPCC is established in 1988.
Looking back in 1981, the world had just barely started warming, despite years of rising CO2 levels.
Three decades later they still admit privately that they don’t understand the climate.
