History in a hurry: the first book about Climategate is published

Climategate The Crutape Letters By Steven Mosher, Thomas W. Fuller, 186 pages - click for details

UPDATE: This book is now available for purchase online at Amazon.com click here

UPDATE 2: Kindle version now available for purchase online at Amazon.com click here

Electronic publishing has revolutionized the art of writing, now less than two months since it happened, we have the very first book about Climategate. My first story on Climategate appeared on November 19th, 2009: Breaking News Story: CRU has apparently been hacked – hundreds of files released

I’ve read the book, and it appears to be an accurate and detailed portrayal of the history not only of the Climategate events and the players, but also of the events leading up to it. I’m flattered that this book mentions me and my surfacestations project several times. I was interviewed for the book, and this website is featured prominently–and they borrowed liberally from both the posts and the comments.

For those of you that want to follow a detective story, this one has as the twists and turns of Mickey Spillane with a Hardy Boys approach to a matter of fact story line. I highly recommend it.

This book is being published in electronic downloadable form, and is available for purchase online. You’ll recognize the authors as regulars here and at Climate Audit. Please consider purchasing this book, as it will provide funds to get Mosh out of the flat in San Francisco he shares with Charles The Moderator, who are becoming the climatic odd couple of our time.

Here are excerpts of the book:

In October of 2004 McIntyre and his criticism was on the radar of climate scientists. Tom Wigley writes Phil Jones about McIntyre’s and McKitrick’s work ( MM03) which is making its way around the internet. Wigley is not as dismissive of McIntyre’s and McKitrick’s work as is Michael Mann. In fact, Wigley calls Mann’s paper a very sloppy piece of work…

At 20:46 21/10/2004, [Tom Wigley]

Phil,

I have just read the M&M stuff critcizing MBH. A lot of it seems valid to me.  At the very least MBH is a very sloppy piece of work — an opinion I have held for some time. Presumably what you have done with Keith is better? — or is it? I get asked about this a lot. Can you give me a brief heads up? Mike is too deep into this to be helpful.

Tom.

As Wigley notes M & M (McIntyre and McKitrick) have some valid points in their criticism of MBH ( Mann and his co authors 1998 paper). What Mann viewed as a stunt others found merit in. Wigley asks Jones about his reconstruction work with colleague Keith Briffa. Briffa, as the Climategate mails show and as his studies show was less certain about reconstructions of the MWP than Mann was. Jones, of course, is stuck between supporting Briffa or Mann, both co-authors. Most importantly Wigley recognizes that Mann is too deep in this to be helpful. Mann has too much at stake to be objective. Jones replies, by this time taking on some of Mann’s attitudes toward McIntyre and McKitrick:

From: Phil Jones p.jones@xxxxxx

To: Tom Wigley wigley@xxxxxx

Tom,

The attached is a complete distortion of the facts. M&M are completely wrong in virtually everything they say or do. I have sent them countless data series that were used in the Jones/Mann Reviews of Geophysics papers. I got scant thanks from them for doing this -  only an email saying I had some of the data series wrong, associated with the wrong year/decade.  I wasted a few hours checking what I’d done and got no thanks for pointing their mistake out to them. If you think M&M are correct and believable then go to this web site

Point I’m trying to make is you cannot trust anything that M&M write. ….

Bottom line – there is no way the MWP (whenever it was) was as warm globally as the  last 20 years. There is also no way a whole decade in the LIA period was more than 1 deg C on a global basis cooler than the 1961-90 mean.  This is all gut feeling, no science, but years of experience of dealing with global scales and varaibility.

Cheers

Phil

Jones’ “gut feeling” is at stake and he is clearly agitated by his encounters with McIntyre, a marked difference from their exchange in 2002. In 2002, McIntyre was merely a researcher asking for data, but by 2003 McIntyre was a published author leveling criticisms at Jones’ co author Michael Mann. Jones also refers Wigley to a web site that discussed M&M. The fight over MM03 was largely taking place on the web as McIntyre had started to write about his findings on a blog called www.climate2003.com.  For independent researchers like McIntyre, posting articles on the internet was far more expedient than publishing in page limited journals. And just as citizen-journalists had transformed print journalism with the advent of blogs, climate science looked ripe to be transformed by the internet. McIntyre and McKitrick also adopted a publication model used by econometricians: they posted their data and their code so that anyone could check their work, find errors and suggest improvements. This gave them the moral high ground of transparency as opposed to Mann’s and Bradley’s shadowy world of “independent scientists,” although Mann and Bradley would certainly argue with some legitimacy that they were only following a century-old practice.”

Steve McIntyre struggle for years to get accurate data out of the hands of an elite team of scientists in England and the U.S., only to be stymied by continued refusals and runarounds.   At the beginning the data concerned work highlighted by your host, Anthony Watts, about the fidelity of the temperature records here in the United States. Later, it revolved around the data used in construction of proxy temperature records, such as the Hockey Stick Chart, now infamous for shoddy analysis and poor sample selection.   Climategate, written by Steve Mosher and Tom Fuller, is an account of the events leading up to the leaking of over 1,000 emails and assorted files that exposes the unethical and perhaps illegal practices used by the Hockey Stick Team to protect their turf as well as their information.   These rock star scientists dined with the elite and feasted on government grants, but it was all predicated on ‘hiding the decline:’ Making sure no-one saw how shaky their data, analysis and conclusions actually were.   Hide the decline didn’t refer to temperatures–it was worse. It was a decline in the quality of their data  they were trying to hide. This book puts it all into context–and in context it is worse.   Mosher actually played a small part in bringing the details to light (although your zany moderator Charles the First was more instrumental), and Fuller covered the story for examiner.com from day one of the scandal.   Here’s an excerpt: “In Chapter 6 we introduce the Army of Davids that will start the laborious process of documenting all the surface stations in the US. McIntyre starts dissecting the Jones 1990 paper and his intense focus on individual cases finds a sympathetic ear in Anthony Watts, who launches an even more detailed look at individual cases in the US. Discussions about UHI and data and code turn from a focus on Jones 1990 to a focus on NASA and their GISSTEMP code, which is eventually released.

At the start of May, McIntyre links to a blogger named Anthony Watts, a former TV meteorologist who was convinced that temperature monitoring stations in the United States were in dire shape and could not be trusted to create a temperature record, especially one that the world would use as a reference point for dealing with climate change. During the summer, Watts would launch a nationwide volunteer effort to document the weather collection stations used by NOAA, NASA, CRU and Jones. The effort that Trenberth thought too large for any one individual would be handled under Watts’ generalship by a true army of Davids across the nation, using the tools of the internet. The goal very simply was to document the status of the temperature collection stations. Many hands made light work of the job scientists thought too large to attempt.

Tom Karl of NOAA takes notice of Watts but is not sure how it will turn out.

Thanks Phil,  We R now responding to a former TV weather forecaster who has got press, He has a web site  of 40 of the USHCN stations  showing less than ideal exposure.  He claims he can show urban biases and exposure biases.  We are writing a response for our Public Affairs.  Not sure how it will play out.    Regards, Tom

That effort, ridiculed at first by bloggers in the warmist faction, would in the end garner Watts a visit to NCDC to discuss his work. Moreover, in the end NOAA would engage in an effort to bring the climate network up to better quality standards. As of July 2009 the volunteer effort, hosted at http://www.surfacestations.org. had surveyed 1,003 of the 1,221 stations used by NOAA and corrected mistakes in the official metadata.:

Readers from this site can finish that part of the story.

    “Detroit – The auto industry’s green efforts to meet strict new mpg rules are the dominant theme inside the 2010 North American International Auto Show. But outside Cobo Center, it’s not just the frigid winter temperatures that have cast doubt on global warming science that is driving the biggest regulatory challenge to the industry in a generation. E-mails leaked from the world’s top climatology center in England have exposed influential scientists doctoring data and suppressing scientific debate. Some in Congress have demanded an investigation.

    On Tuesday before a Detroit Athletic Club audience in downtown Detroit, The Detroit News and WJR Radio brought together leaders from the fields of climatology, energy politics, and the auto industry to debate whether the so-called Climategate scandal has undermined auto regulations.”

    Nice work on the book. Charles the moderator had a great influence and deserves credit. Perhaps Charles will have the place to himself soon. WUWT also gets lots of credit and I am proud you guys are first. My only criticism, perhaps there should be a hyphen between CRU and Tape in the title, but what do I know.

    Has the book been peer reviewed? – I hope not! The peer review process is broken and in some cases corrupt.
    Are the authors in the pay of Big Oil? – So what? Don’t you drive a car or use public transport?
    The authors aren’t climate scientists… – That’s good – there is no such thing as a climate scientist. It’s a field of study that’s too diverse and complex to be understood even at a high level by any scientists. Besides neither were the IPCC authors so called “climate scientists”.
    The book doesn’t prove anything cause the icecaps are still melting…. They have been melting for 1000′s of years. So what?

  39. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    Keep the spotlight on the dirty climategate iceberg and a lot of filth will be discovered.

    The problem is an unholy alliance of Politicians & Scientists.

    Let’s not focus our attention and vent our anger exclusively on the Scientists. Yes, they are scoundrels but they only did what was asked.

    Scientists were trained to lie, distort, and manipulate data to get “scientific proof” of whatever the politicians wanted.

    Scientists merely lied to stay in good graces of the politicians who controlled their research funds.

    Politicians are sensitive to public opinions. Scientists are not.

    To clean up this mess, NAS President Ralph Ciscerone should be asked publicly and repeatedly why public tax funds were directed to research Scientists who were willing to deceive the very public that paid for their research.

  40. BB says:

    Love the title…

    “The CRUtape letters” is a variant of “The Screwtape Letters” which was a fictional work by CS Lewis, basically chronicalling a series of letters back and forth between a senior and junior daemon talking about how to corrupt the junior daemon’s charge.

    “The CRUtape letters” on the other hand is a series of letters back and forth between daemons talking about how to corrupt science.

  41. Spector says:

    I believe any book on Climategate *must* make the New York Times best seller list if it is going to have a real impact on the debate. An E-Book may make the author(s) a handsome income selling ‘to the quire,’ but I believe a ‘best-seller’ is required to reach those people who believe denial of ‘Global Warming’ is a diehard refusal to accept what everyone having any modicum of concern for our environment know to be right.

    Please, Jacob–enlighten us! Show us one lie. Back up your allegation with proof. If you can’t, you now have egg on your face like Mann (I think he’s got a 12-egg omelet on his), or Jones (12-egg omelet there, too), and the rest of the egg-on-face-sporting clowns involved and implicated in this fraudulent escapade. (James Hansen may be the biggest clown of all, and rightly so–he’s a felon and shouldn’t even be close to NASA.)

    For me the rule of thumb to determine who’s right is which group is willing to open up to complete and total inspection. Any group that refuses to adhere to FOI requests cannot be trusted. And when their schemes are displayed in emails to fellow saboteurs, all suspicions are confirmed. It’s especially damnable when those covering up are using public funds to do it.

    But justice comes, albeit in a different manner than most think it will. Already, the insurance industry is taking a different tact when it comes to climate-related risk assessment. If the insurance industry won’t back it, the chirade is up; you’ve lost the argument regardless of how devoted you are to the religion.

The problem is there is usually nothing you can do about any of these things except vote and even that is questionable at times like the recent outcome of the senate race up in Minnesota.

    Tokyoboy,
    I suspect that it will make it onto Amazon after awhile (after the authors recoup some expenses), but speaking as a self published author myself, Amazon isn’t generous with the people that do the actual work of researching, writing, editing and publishing a book. They take a 55 percent cut of the sales price.

    If at all possible (int’l sales sound problematic), don’t wait for Amazon. Go to Mosh and Fuller’s website to buy the book, the authors (and CTM) will appreciate it more.

    The evidence of duplicity is clear and convincing.

    And among AGW sceptics well known.

    The challenge is getting the word out to the general population.

    Proposal: Operation coffee table.

    Place this book out on the coffee table at your home or office (reception waiting area) and perhaps the book will serve as “conversation starter” or maybe just quietly prick the interest of those who see and pick up the book.

    This is a situation where the “high priests” of Global Baloney WILL NEVER admit to being wrong — too much is at stake for them: Grants, professional pride, and world-view.

    The answer is to encapsulate the “high priests” in a sea of informed citizenry who will demand their elected represenatives to reject the AGW hypothesis (there’s not enough evidence to call it a “theory”) and after some political momentum (a battlefield victory) push harder to cut off governmental funding (a clear signal for these folks to do something else).

    Addendum to (08:28:20) comment :

    Some might say, “Cut of their funding? No, that’s exactly what they attempted to do to the other side, it’s against the spirit of scientific inquiry.”

    There is something to that critique.

    I strongly suspect there are plenty of private sources for funding of this sort of research, let the private sector pay the dime for their time — precious tax dollars shouldn’t be spent on supporting this fraudulent world-view.

  57. John Blake says:

    Less than two months after Climategate (sic) broke publicly on November 20th, scarcely a week goes by without devastating new refutations of the collusive, deceitful, thoroughly discreditable Green Gang– Briffa, Hansen, Jones, MAnn, Trenberth et al.

    Minuscule, skewed data-samples, grossly manipulated for propaganda purposes; invalid methodology producing prima facie fraudulent results; concerted efforts to blacklist and smear opponents, wreck careers, all for the most grubby and sordid ideological motives– these are your Climate Cultist, Luddite sociopaths without a grain of disinterested integrity or even self-respect.

    Not only are tree-ring (dendrochronological) data meaningless as cited by Warmists, but actual records depict precisely opposite effects. Pitifully vandalized surface-temperature composites have been rendered worse than useless, 150 years of carefully accumulated readings consciencelessly destroyed.
    Just recently, German physicists reviewing Warmist theses in a 125-page monograph conclude definitively that thermodynamic Conservation Laws render “greenhouse effects” impossible: First, because heat dissipates to outer space from global atmospheric “open systems”, and second, because even in closed systems thermal equilibrium entails entropic cooling rather warming processes.

    On top of this, we also know –though “climate science” (sic) chooses to ignore such things– that Lorenz’s Chaos Theory (1964) prohibits linear extrapolations from “complex dynamic systems” (any system of three or more mutually interacting variables), while “punctuated equilibrium” defined by Nobelist Ilya Prigogine et al. makes nonsense of attempts to rely on stable baselines. In fine, Warmists’ self-serving expatiations are literal fantasies: AGW neither has nor can have, mathematically or physically in any context or perspective, the slightest application to Nature’s actual behavior.

    Documenting Green Gang con-artists’ ongoing subversion of scientific inquiry combined with predatory raids on public fiscs, will require years. Mosher and Fuller’s reprise is a good start… meantime, by June 2010 it will have become painfully obvious even to committed Gangers that the esteemed objects of their affection will never publish anything professionally again.

I think you are going to miss a few sales to grumpy old men with this round-about ‘createspace’ web page, and now I’ve got a new on-line account with someplace I really don’t need one, never heard of before, won’t get the book for 3 weeks, if and when I do get it.

    Thanks – I’ve purchased a copy.

    I have a serious question. As an avid reader and (very) occasional contributor, would there be any way that I could ship the book to S. Mosher’s business address and have him and CTM autograph it?

    I work in the “Alternative Energy business” and am constantly in discussions w/people that are blinded by ideology. I would love to have this as a reference book on my desk (complete w/author autographs).

Apparently Germany doesn’t want to become too uncompetitive on the global stage. Our lot just don’t care as we do not produce anything anyway – only failed banks perhaps.

    he will make the first public announcement of this.

  73. Jerry says:

    Well the sceptics have had targets painted on them and Sad Science is just one of the snipers.

    It works like this. The name of the game is ‘control both sides’. If there is opposition the secret services put their own people out to lead it (the secret services used to recruit mostly from Oxford and Cambridge so many are Oxbridge graduates). A good strategy might be to get their people funded by oil companies and then put them in the driving seats of the sceptic’s buses. Sceptics have been tarnished by oil company funding even though the oil companies primarily fund the other side. Its about time this issue was seriously looked at.

    The media is also full of secret service recruits. It’s the same in most western countries. As if that wasn’t enough the media is also controlled by the multinationals (as are governements) and the stories are just fillers between adverts. Amongst the few journalists who do cover the AGW scam are some ‘controlled opposition’ shills who merely repeat what has already been reported somewhere else and then they take their trusting followers they will take them down dead ends.

    One such dead end is to link themselves in some way to outrageous conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones (it paints another target on sceptics) who goes on about how the swine flu vaccines were a plot to exterminate people and how the US government were setting up FEMA concentration camps etc etc. If certain sceptic’s bus drivers are interviewed by Alex jones or if they are funded by oil companies (or both) then think carefully about what is going on here. It could be they are just stupid and naive, it could also be that they are taking advantage of any publicity that they can get because there aren’t a lot of outlets but it might also be a deliberate strategy at tarnishing the sceptics by associating them with ‘pretend loonies’.

    I study propaganda by the way.

    I know you guys are uber-busy, but it doesn’t leave a good impression when the authors and/or the website chastise those who did NOT miss the link at the final word of the post, went there and found a confusing page, at best. If the E-book version is offered there, it could not be found by myself after much searching. I am one of those “grumpy old men”, as John F. Hultquist put it, and I would truly like to support the efforts of this site and the authors. But, at this time, you are making it hard to do so.

    I consider this site and many of the skeptic scientists and webmasters to be heroes for standing up to the power of groups like the U.N., the EPA, NASA, Albore, CRU and all the entrenched moneyed interests that have sought to beat the skeptics down. I have every confidence that you will eventually get the oppurtunity to buy this book right, rather than take a CRU type attitude towards those of us that do not fit the needs of the site offering the book at present.

    Here’s hoping the the book becomes, like its subject, one of those viral phenomenons that the web is capable of producing occasionally. And thanks for all the hard work. Us regular working stiff, non-scientist sceptics appreciate your work more than you will ever know.

    Please, please stop encouraging the silly UK habit of saying or writing ‘myself’ when one should say or write ‘I’. It’s teeth-grindingly irritating to hear or to see in print and is incorrect grammar.

    I’m sure it usually is wrong, but in this case a substitution might (remember, I said “maybe” and appended a “?”) make for easier reading, because the current version lacks parallelism and forces the reader to do a double-take:

    I’m flattered that I and my surfacestations project are mentioned several times in this book.

    Now that I’ve thought about it for more than five seconds, here’s a version that should be acceptable to all:

    I get the sense that I’m being politely chastised. If I was in any way rude, i.e. impolite, I apologize- to the moderator. But “RT – mod” ‘s reply to “Charles Platt (08:55:01) ” was at least mildly condescending, IMO. I was just trying to point out that some of us mildly technologically challenged “grumpy old men” were not getting the results we expected. I’m not sure how “I would truly like to support the efforts of this site and the authors. But, at this time, you are making it hard to do so.” could be construed as impolite. Also, at the time I was writing my comment, this reply was not on my screen:
    “Reply: The mods and Anthony did not have anything to do with publishing this book, but I am looking into to anyway to see what assistance I can provide. ~ ctm”. And that is what I expected would eventually happen on a site of this quality. These little glitches just take time to work out.

  92. Jerry says:

    Congratulations to Steven Mosher, Thomas W. Fuller on your book. I’ll buy a copy.

    Everybody should take my previous comment seriously. I’m not a conspiracy theorist. What I said (although a little rushed and badly written) is a real danger.

    If it helps to convince people that I know what I’m talking about then here is a small extract of some of my work.

    The ownership of the mainstream Western media with the exception of the BBC is largely concentrated in the hands of a small elite group of Fortune 500 corporations (Paterson 1998; Baker 2007). These leading media organisations although highly competitive with each other are also allied supplying each other with news reports from which they all profit (Paterson). A free media is necessary to act as a government watchdog in order to safeguard democracy (Herman & Chomsky, 2002). However Cohen (2005) argues that these huge media empires driven by profit maximisation have in league with government offices and agencies been spinning political and corporate media deception thus betraying the masses and undermining democracy. For example Routledge (2001) pointed out that Tony Blair’s government was filled with journalists whom he named and identified to be from almost every major British newspaper and TV station. But powerful non-media global corporations also exert a strong influence on the policies of politicians and political parties as well as the media.

    Great work, Messrs. Mosher and Fuller (and A. Watts and crew of the good ship WUWT). This will perhaps be one of the turning points in the battle against zealots and ‘scientific’ harlots, and a return to reason and actual scientific advance in understanding this fantastic globe we inhabit.

    But, some here are learning about the pitfalls of not being quite ready when rolling the thing out. Ask Steve Jobs to give you an idea of the incendiary response when the “next great product” doesn’t meet one or two of God knows how many expectations. I’ll buy the book in Rev. 2 of the sales process, which I know you’re working overtime to perfect. The rest of you folk – calm down. Most of you are old enough to contain yourselves.

    Quick update for all–first, many thanks for the kind words of support about the project.

    On to the problems. First, we self published using CreateSpace, which is owned by Amazon. When we signed up, we were informed that we would be carried on Amazon.com as a regular title. Afterwards, we learned that it would take 15 days for them to have it on their database. For those wanting to wait for Amazon, that’s the timeline. We are assured that we will then be able to have a Kindle version available. However, we don’t know yet if that will happen immediately.

    We are investigating making an electronic version available on our own. We should have that figured out, at least, by tomorrow. If anybody knows an outfit that is quicker than Clickbank, let us know. They seem very reputable, but some of their requirements will take time for us to satisfy.

    made me wonder. Also, I am not trying to chastise anyone running this site or doing the moderators job, and I believe I made that clear in my original comment. Just trying to point out that there were problems, for me at least, as well as Charles Platt, with getting to the spot where the electronic version could be accessed.

    Also, do not unerstand this:
    “RT – mod didn’t reply to Charles Platt, CTM mod did so, having been asked by RT – mod for assistance with your request via email.”

    I’ve not received nor sent any emails with regard to this. Are you talking about the mods emailing?

    I think some of the confusion stems from the fact that as the mods work through the process, the comments go up, in some cases, a while after they are logged in (at least that is how it appears to me). Some of the moderator replies to the commenters go up even later than that, and they were not up on my screen when I first wrote my comment. If they had been up, I would not even have written my comment, as it would have been already apparent that someone was already working on the “problem”, as I pointed out I was sure they would.

    INGSOC You can’t dismiss what I say because of one small quote from Chomsky. Whatever political position Chomsky has taken (I’m not a fan of his and wouldn’t trust his opinion on many issues) the quote of his that I used in my introduction is a well known quote and is still true. I don’t draw upon any more of his work. But this is a good example of a real issue that I pointed out in my earlier comment. Many people will dismiss the arguements of those who are linked to people who are funded by people in the oil industry even though what they say might be true. Likewise being linked to Alex Jones is a sure way of being dismissed as a conspiracy theorist. I just want people to be aware.

    Tokyoboy,
    I suspect that it will make it onto Amazon after awhile (after the authors recoup some expenses), but speaking as a self published author myself, Amazon isn’t generous with the people that do the actual work of researching, writing, editing and publishing a book. They take a 55 percent cut of the sales price.

    That is standard in low volume publishing. The Amazon cut is lower in higher volumes but they also give bigger discounts.

    And you get the advantage of their bigger audience.

    Dear Authors
    Dear Antony

    I am writing this piece to try to get in touch with the authors (an the publishing house) in order to translate this book into Polish ASAP.
    My e-mail address is strzeleccy@neostrada.pl, phone number in Poland +48 (602) 557 398.
    I have published on December 2 2009 an article on Climategate in one of he key dailies in Poland (Rzeczpospolita, you can check by googling it) and I have made arrangements with a very friendly publishing house to publish something Climategate and the AGW hoax.
    Authors, please reply.
    Antony, please put me in touch with the authors.
    Moderator, please help me in this effort.

    Regards

    Jerzy Strzelecki

    I suggest that the authors, or someone, put together (edit) a collection of 10-20 enlightening essays on Climategate, such as this one: http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/01/climategate_the_truth_hurts_wh.html

    I’m sure the essay-authors wouldn’t ask for anything, provided the royalty were donated to WUWT or some similar entity.

    Well Brian Sussman, isn’t going to be too happy about this event;

    He’s been touting his own book called “Climatgate” for some time now; and evidently it won’t be out till March or April.

    Wellas they say; you snooze; you lose.

    Good luck with your scoop, Steve and Tom and maybe Chasmod will get a rent adjustment.

    “Climategate The Crutape Letters” now showing “in stock” on Amazon.com, but sadly not yet on Amazon.co.uk…

    REPLY: Here is the Link for Amazon in the USA to purchase the book

  124. vigilantfish says:

    Not available yet on Amazon.ca either. I’ll wait a day or two, until the glitches are ironed out, but this is a must-buy (not just because it’s an important primary history source, but because it’s purchase is for a good cause….. ) Hope there’s pictures!

  125. Anthony Watts says:

    There’s lots of pictures, graphs, and documents
