About the Author

Steven M Mosher, born in Grand Rapids Michigan, graduated Northwestern University and attended UCLA for graduate studies in literature. He later joined Northrop Aircraft where he worked as an threat analyst and director of analysis until transitioning to the commercial world in 1995 when he joined Creative Labs as a director of marketing and product development. Since 1995 he has specialized in the development of new consumer technologies such as 3D graphics, web cameras, Mp3 players and a variety of wireless devices. Since 2007 he has worked in the open source community and has been active leader in the effort to get open access to the data and code underlying climate science. Thomas Fuller was born in Denver Colorado and currently lives in San Francisco. Trained by the U.S. Navy in electronics and cryptography, he has been writing about technology ever since, usually market research reports with exciting titles like 'Project Global Market for Infusion Pumps 2009-2014.' This is a lot of fun by comparison.

After reading such a book, your first temptation is to read it again, and this is a good idea.
B. Hutchins
Let's hope that most scientists are as open in their thinking and as faithful to the scientific method as the authors of this book seem to be.
A. Miller
Climategate I is the scandal uncovered at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the Univ. of East Anglia in England, the subject of this book.

Format: Paperback
Mosher and Fuller were at the forefront of the revelation that Hadley's CRU was acting out of line. They were careful about moving ahead unless or until the leaked emails were deemed authentic. The reader can trust this volume. What many anthropogenic global warming advocates do not know is that workers at the CRU were concerned about the strength of data that showed the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was much warmer than the 20th Century. The leaked emails reveal this concern and how some ethically challenged scientists endeavored since the mid-1990s to diminish the importance of the MWP and devise support for the erroneous notion the the 20th Century was the warmest period of the past millennium. This book by Mosher and Fuller honestly chronicles that revelation. This book is a step -- albeit an important one -- in the citizen's quest to understand the empirical truth about anthropological global warming. Everyone who desires to have a thorough understanding of the issue must read this book and recognize the importance of the leaked CRUtape letters.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is quite the thriller, with a fascinating documentation of how scientists can be gradually corrupted by the heady power of convincing the UN, world leaders, and (to a slightly lesser extent) the people of the world that we are headed for disastrous climate change and must undertake supreme efforts within the next decade or condemn our grandchildren to famine, flood, and hurricanes. Mosher was near the heart of the early confused reception of the Climategate emails, when the leaker (Mosher presents strong reasons for it being a leaker, not a hacker)attempted time and again to get his message out (even, ironically, including sending the link to the main blog for the defenders of the status quo) and no one paid any attention. The leaker sent one message ("And then a miracle occurred") with a link to the documents and no one clicked the link! Finally Mosher and others began cautiously reading, wondering if this was a hoax, calling persons whose emails they were reading to see if they were authentic, and gradually realizing that this was the break of a lifetime, akin to the release of the Pentagon Papers. The book is valuable just for bringing the readers in to the middle of this white-hot period.

The remainder of the book is a fairly complete chronological history of the emails with a reasonable effort at explaining the backstory for the general reader. It was of course thrown together in a very short time and shows it. (So I give it only 4 stars). The co-authors describe themselves as "Lukewarmers", neither alarmists not denialists, accepting that global warming is occurring but not convinced it is mostly caused by man and not convinced that superhuman efforts are all that can save the planet.

111 of 138 people found the following review helpful By Jim W Oregon on January 18, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book details the history of respected (up to now) climate scientists here and abroad (mostly UK) who colluded and connived to create inaccurate reports, conceal their fraud, malign their critics and prevent them from publishing in journals that they influenced, lie about their raw data, lose their raw data, deny peremptorily requests for data, delay and then refuse to respond to Freedom of Information requests, promise to destroy files rather than release them to FOIA requesters, and attempt to call for criminal prosecution of those who procured correspondences and data that confirmed all this. Their highly unscientific behavior - normal enough I suppose in other fields of endeavor - does not define them or their work, but it is repetitive, and frequent enough and deliberative enough to call the rest of their work into question. Students have been expelled for less.

The closest analogy would be the Pentagon Papers, for which Daniel Ellsberg received praise rather than vilification. But the Vietnam War was not an object of adoration as is our self-flagellating anthropogenic global warming.

These gentlemen were among the first to find these emails on the WWW... The emails show the true state of climate "science". The so called scientists were funded by US and British taxpayer money. Every taxpayer has a right to see the shenanigans that were, and probably still are, taking place. Thanks, authors, for bringing these emails into the public eye. Also a big thanks to the whistleblower who released this evidence of malfeasance.

For the past ten years Planet Earth has NOT been warming, but the political heat has been intense. Tens of thousands of scientists have been speaking out on the Gore global warming fraud, but the money and power has all been on the other side.

Finally, just before the failed December 2009 Copenhagen Conference, proof positive came out with the release to the public of the CRU files. The authors were close to this event, and, like me, they watched the creation of a new word, "Climategate," which within a week was getting tens of millions of hits on Google.

This evidence is more than a smoking gun. It's a chain of nuclear explosions. The UN's IPCC -- a political body with only a few scientists (aided and abetted by formerly repected scientists at England's CRU) -- has been twisting and selectively cherry picking temperature records for years. THEY THREW OUT THE TEMPERATURE RECORDS!!!! Literally. Even the "Medieval Optimum" -- the time 1,000 years ago when people were visiting Greenland in open boats (in winter) and growing wine grapes there -- disappeared from the record. Michael Mann (here in the U.S.) helped by manipulating tree ring data, spreading false science to show the infamous "hocky stick" temperature graph as per Gore's movie. Google "hide the decline" for an amusing video about that.

And now in 2010 we are moving into Climategate II. Climategate I is the scandal uncovered at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the Univ. of East Anglia in England, the subject of this book. Climategate II Involves the dishonesty at the US NASA-GiSS facilities as well as at the NOAA facilities. The underlying science of the entire global warming scare has disappeared in a mushroom cloud of scientific dishonesty.
