The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science
In 2009 the Corbett Report sat down with Dr. Tim Ball, a retired professor of climatology at the University of Winnipeg to talk about Phil Jones and the Climate Research Unit. Here, two months before "Climategate" and the hacked emails, we talk about the highly secretive nature of the CRU at East Anglia. To read Dr. Ball's article:

Dr. Tim Ball, author of The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science and Humans Caused Global Warming, examines the climate change hoax and explains how a premeditated, orchestrated deception fooled a majority, including most scientists.
Review: ‘The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science’ by Dr. Tim Ball

In this mind-blowing book ‘The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science;’ one of the world’s leading skeptic climatologists, Tim Ball, presents us with the evidence as to why the UN IPCC is nothing more and nothing less than a politically contrived organization. This is the book Ball has been eager to publish the moment he was free of the censorious legal shackles imposed upon him three years ago when Penn. State University’s Michael Mann (‘hockey stick’ graph fraud) filed a libel suit against him in Canada.
Here, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the supposed world authority on matters of climate, is demonstrated to be a tight-knit and politicized advocacy group – a “cabal” as Ball calls them, that has cost the world multi-billions of dollars for no result whatsoever. Today we may see for ourselves why Ball correctly adjudged that Mann (and others) should be in “the state pen, not Penn. State.”
The book leaves no stone unturned when it comes to identifying the serious damage to climate science – and government-funded science in general – that the University of East Anglia’s Climate Change Unit (CRU) has brought upon the entire issue of so-called man-made climate change. The damage the UN’s 30-year “green agenda” has done to modern industrial progress cannot be underestimated, says Ball. Much of the science is fudged, if not outright faked.
In an interview with Radio America’s Greg Corombos about the new book, Dr Ball tells his audience that today’s anti-industrialists are the latest incarnation of a misguided cause that goes back to the 19th century writings of Thomas Malthus. Malthus argued that the human population was fast outgrowing nature’s capacity to sustain it. Malthus therefore advocated population control to ward off mass disease and starvation.
“If you can shut off the flow of fossil fuels, that will stop the engine of those industrialized nations, but people would scream immediately if that happened,” explains the mild-mannered expert. “But if you could show that the by-product of the combustion of that fossil fuel, carbon dioxide, was causing runaway global warming and climate change, then you could use that for a vehicle to introduce legislation to shut down those industrialized nations.”
Concisely and eruditely set out, this impressive volume details why policy makers should immediately stop funding the UN’s IPCC and disband all climate -related institutions that rely on a trove of “secret science” that forms the backbone of UN IPCC alarmism.
Tim Ball explains all the steps that have led to the situation we still find ourselves in today, despite all the abject failings of all predictions and/or scenarios concocted by doom saying errant computer models. Shadowy figures behind the scenes such as billionaire Maurice Strong, are openly identified in the book and one can only hope that for their misdeeds the fraudsters will be called to account.
The undertone throughout is that skeptic scientists have long been rebuffed by the presiding UN climate cabal that refuses to enter into public debate. And it is no surprise the doomsayers are shy of open debate – much of their supposed evidence for global warming is either kept hidden or premised on the failed predictions (or, as the IPCC lamely calls them, “projections”) of junk models. In fact, Dr Ball demonstrates there is no openly verifiable proof showing human-made carbon dioxide measurably altering climate, let alone ”catastrophically,” as is all too often claimed.
The courage and forthrightness Tim Ball has shown with this book, and in the British Columbia Supreme Court defending himself against the now failed libel suit of Michael Mann, is about to be vindicated by the judiciary. As the scientific community awaits Ball’s impeding legal triumph, we may edify ourselves not just with the black and white evidence presented in this extraordinary publication, but in the certain knowledge that Mann and his co-conspirators have spectacularly failed in their bid to silence dissent against their fraudulent science.
Mann’s abortive attempt to sue Ball in the British Columbia Supreme Court ultimately back-fired because Mann refused to show his metadata, his calculations for his junk science, in open court. Now Mann faces possible bankruptcy on top of professional suicide, as the price for his misdeeds.
Reviewing in detail the Climategate scandal with reference to the leaked emails, Mann and his fellow scammers are now shown in Ball’s book to have conspired to build the lie that the relatively minuscule human emissions of a trace and beneficial gas, carbon dioxide, will catastrophically alter the world’s climate.
Ball was the underdog made into the accidental hero of the climate wars story. He helped pave the way towards a new open platform for principled scientists on the Internet so that independent, unpaid researchers debunking the so-called ‘greenhouse gas theory’, the cornerstone of the pseudo-science of all global warming alarmism are finally being heard. Today, more scientists are coming to the realization that the only effect that atmospheric carbon dioxide can have is one of increased cooling – never any warming – and, at last, the journey back to empiricism is under way.
For his efforts Dr Ball will be regarded as the climatologist who was at the forefront of the paradigm shift away from the post-normalism that poisoned much government science in recent generations. Ball stood beside those who championed the traditional scientific method out to prove that an innocent – and life-giving – gas (carbon dioxide) cannot precipitate a “man-made” climate disaster. This important new book needs to be compulsory reading for all policymakers so as to bring an end to the ongoing waste of government funds tackling a non-existent threat.
