Piet Moerland, bestuursvoorzitter van de Rabobank, is opgestapt (bron fotoshop). Daarom verklaren we hem hier tot Goede CEO. Alleen slechte CEO’s blijven aan nadat er grote misstanden in hun organisatie zijn geconstateerd. Daarom is Rajendra Pachauri een slechte CEO. Het IPCC lijkt zich nog één keer te hebben gered afgelopen september, maar de uiteindelijke genadeklap is onvermijdelijk.

In de stemming gebracht door Libor e-mails zoals deze:

(1) On 6 October 2006, Trader 2 wrote to Manager 1, stating, “HELLO SKIPPER, CAN U PUT 3S AT 37 FOR ME TOMORROW PLS . . . MANY THANKS.” Manager 1 replied: “NEVER IN DOUBT!” Rabobank made a 5.37 three month USD LIBOR submission on 7 October.

(2) On 1 December 2006, after receiving a number of USD LIBOR requests from Trader 2, Manager 1 joked that he was “fast turning into [Trader 2’s] LIBOR bitch!!!!”

I know there is pressure to present a nice tidy story as regards ‘apparent unprecedented warming in a thousand years or more in the proxy data’ but in reality the situation is no quite so simple.- Keith Briffa, Climatic Research Unit, Climategate e-mail, 22 september 1999
I can’t see either of these papers being in the next IPCC report. Kevin [Trenberth] and I will keep them out somehow, even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!- Phil Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit, Climategate e-mail, 8 juli 2004
Mike [Mann], can you delete any e-mails you may have had with Keith [Trenberth] re AR4? Keith will do likewise…Can you also e-mail Gene and get him to do the same? I don’t have his e-mail address…We will be getting Caspar to do likewise.- Phil Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit, Climategate e-mail, 29 mei 2008
I’m getting hassled by a couple of people to release the CRU station temperature data. Don’t any of you three tell anybody that the UK has a Freedom of Information Act.- Phil Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit, Climategate e-mail, Feb. 21, 2005
We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try to find something wrong with it- Phil Jones, Director of the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University, Climategate e-mail to Warwick Hughes, 2004
Well, I have my own article on where the heck is global warming…The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.- Kevin Trenberth, IPCC Lead Author, Climategate e-mail, Oct. 12, 2009
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.- Phil Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit, Climategate e-mail, Nov. 16, 1999
What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multidecadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably …- Tommy Wills, Swansea University, Mail naar mailing list tree-ring data forum ITRDB, 28 Mar 2007 (email 1682)
I find myself in the strange position of being very skeptical of the quality of all present reconstructions, yet sounding like a pro greenhouse zealot here!- Keith Briffa, Climategate e-mail 2009

We concluderen dat mannen in een afgeschermde omgeving uiteindelijk altijd en allemaal zullen ontsporen in barbarij en tribalisme. Dat wist William Golding al met zijn Lord of the Flies. Ik vermoed een beetje dat de Libor traders meer geld bijeenschoffelden, betere champagne dronken en lekkerdere hoeren neukten, dan de would-be assholes in de wetenschap. Het risico en vooral de consequenties van ontdekking in de financiële wereld is ook groter natuurlijk. En risico is de grootste adrenalinekick. De vraag is natuurlijk waarom in de Groene Kerk schandalen nog minder consequenties hebben, dan schandalen in de katholieke kerk? Is het omdat het een nog jonge religie betreft?
