In a shock move a discredited global warming scientist implicated in climate fraud is appointed to a top job at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
Jim Salinger, one of the scientists suspected of criminal misconduct in the Climategate scandal has been elected to the prestigious role of President of the Commission for Agricultural Meteorology of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Climate skeptics are aghast at the news.
Salinger remains a suspected accomplice in the tight knit international clique of climatologists involved in the data corruption scandal at the University of East Anglia (UEA), England. Commenting on that ongoing criminal probe, Senior Investigating Officer (SIO), Detective Superintendent Julian Gregory said
“This has been a complex investigation, undertaken in a global context and requiring detailed and time consuming lines of enquiry. Due to the sensitivity of the investigation it has not been possible to share details of enquiries with the media and the public and it would be inappropriate for us to comment any further at this time.”
Pointedly, Salinger had been an employee of the UEA before his appointment at the New Zealand’s National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA). But was fired after the Climategate scandal hit the headlines. In an ironic twist it’s the Kiwi government department now trumpeting his new WMO appointment on the NIWA website
Joe Olson of the Slayers group of skeptics
was quick to comment, “This is how the greens recycle their 'waste' – it gets turned into valuable 'compost.’ Can he possibly be embarrassed into retirement? ”
Legal Defeat for Global Warming in Kiwigate Scandal
After the UEA scandal broke Salinger was named and shamed by the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition (NZCSC) in its article ‘NIWA Challenged to Show Why and How Temperature Records Were Adjusted’ (February 7, 2010) in a second climate data-rigging calamity dubbed ‘Kiwigate.’
Anomalies in the NZ temperature records appear eerily similar to those in Climategate.
NZSSC took NIWA to court and exposed Salinger and his accomplices for creating a warming trend for that nation’s climate that is not borne out by the actual temperature record.
Unperturbed by his fall from grace the WMO have welcomed Salinger into their fold. Salinger also still maintains his position as a lead author for the discredited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that was found to have fraudulently relied upon Greenpeace reports
and not ‘peer reviewed literature’ as it had claimed.
The ex-UEA man will now take responsibility for WMO’s developing of early warning systems for natural hazards – floods, windstorms, droughts, landslides, and heat waves.
Birds of a Feather Fly Together
According to NZCSC, Salinger and other crooked climate con artists cooked the books by using the same alleged ‘trick’ employed by British and American doomsaying scientists. This involves subtly imposing a warming bias during what is known as the ‘homogenisation’ process that occurs when climate data needs to be adjusted.
Rather than face utter humiliation in a court of law NIWA bailed out before the trial. NIWA’s statement
admits it kept no official New Zealand Temperature Record (NZTR) but somehow managed to maintain an acronym for it and used it to acquiesce with politicians to promote the raising unfounded climate taxes. Disgruntled Kiwi voters thus learned they were duped into believing there existed unprecedented global warming when it was all the invention of shady Jim Salinger’s doomsaying imagination.
According to NZCSC the NZ authorities,
“formally stated that, in their opinion, they are not required to use the best available information nor to apply the best scientific practices and techniques available at any given time. They don’t think that forms any part of their statutory obligation to pursue “excellence.”
Perhaps this is precisely what the WMO had in mind when hiring Salinger?
