Remember…No Climate Change Until July 5, 2005 ((c) Phil Jones)

A well-known but never too quoted, revealing statement by Phil Jones no less:

From: Phil Jones To: John Christy
Subject: This and that
Date: Tue Jul 5 15:51:55 2005

[…] As you know, I’m not political. If anything, I would like to see the climate change happen, so the science could be proved right, regardless of the consequences. This isn’t being political, it is being selfish. […]

I shall almost refrain from pointing out that Jones’ selfishness means hoping for millions of people suffering for “climate change”, just so that he’ll be shown right (it’s more infantilism than selfishness, really). The obvious and important point instead is that Jones himself declares that until 2005 there had been no “climate change”, not of the kind expected by his science at least.

So changes in temperature anomalies, in hurricanes, pine beetles, whatever else, according to Jones none of that qualifies as “climate change”.

The climate, in fact, has not changed. At least until 2005. And if “climate” is weather averaged over 30 years, we can kick climate change to 2035…

    I particularly liked the one that stated if they changed the climate base line the dramatic effect would be lost.
    Jones has done his best to find the changing climate or manufacture it.
    His early work on UHI destroyed his reputation!

    Its not the science he wanted proved right but his desire to get the science to follow those damn models which still get it wrong and satisfy his political masters.
