Myron Ebell alleges the data is false

Fox "News" Hack Julia Seymour tried to warmed up the corpse of climategate with a piece that began with the astonishing claim that when the story broke it wasn't reported across US broadcast network news for 14 days.

And then: "Since Nov. 19, 2009, the broadcast networks have only mentioned the scandal or the University of East Anglia in a paltry 12 stories."

I wonder if Ms Seymour counted among these "paltry" stories the New York Times editorial ("Perhaps now we can put the manufactured controversy known as Climategate behind us and turn to the task of actually doing something about global warming.") or Newsweek's: "Newspapers Retract 'Climategate' Claims, but Damage Still Done"

Of course not! Ms Seymour is a Fox News Hack. Their motto is "Unfair and unbalanced".

Instead she takes some choice quotes from Mr Myron Ebell:
Twelve stories. Why so little coverage? Myron Ebell, director of energy and global warming policy for the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), told the Business & Media Institute, "I think it’s pretty obvious why the networks and major papers have ignored ClimateGate. It’s because they don’t want to consider the possibility that the sort of monolithic [global warming] consensus that they support and are a part of is based on junk science."...

According to Ebell, the scientists involved were not making "mistakes" as the media emphasized, but "manipulating data." The CRU emails revealed "they were adjusting the [weather] stations they were using" to show warmer recent decades and cooler temperatures in the 1930s and '40s, Ebell said.
So Myron Ebell is directly alleging that scientists are fiddling the measurement data. That's quite something.

The thing about all the FOI requests and data disclosures from the climate scientists is it's now been possible to check and confirm the full data-set and calculations independently and transparently as has been done here.

So you've got what you want. There is nothing left hiding. You need to point to exactly what the problem is, or shut the f*** up!

But Myron is never going to shut-up until either (a) someone stops paying him to speak lies, (b) people stop printing these lies, or (c) he dies having devoted his entire life towards hastening the extinction of the human race.
