Just in time for the holidays, whistleblower Foia.org apparently released more of those Climategate emails- a lot more. Over a million. Most of them have yet to be cracked, but the 5,000 emails without passwords contain the same cover-up from the same characters at University of East Anglia and around the world. Media Matters and Thinkprogress urges the media to investigate before they say anything. After all, "hide the decline" didn't really mean what it sounds like, I guess.
Here is one exerpt from this new email leak:
Observations do not show rising temperatures throughout the tropical
troposphere unless you accept one single study and approach and discount a
wealth of others. This is just downright dangerous. We need to communicate the
uncertainty and be honest. Phil, hopefully we can find time to discuss these
further if necessary [...]
I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it
which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run.
It seems that a few people have a very strong say, and no matter how much
talking goes on beforehand, the big decisions are made at the eleventh hour by
a select core group.
Mike, The Figure you sent is very deceptive [...] there have been a number of
dishonest presentations of model results by individual authors and by IPCC [...]
The trick may be to decide on the main message and use that to guid[e] what’s
included and what is left out.
I agree w/ Susan [Solomon] that we should try to put more in the bullet about
“Subsequent evidence” [...] Need to convince readers that there really has been
an increase in knowledge – more evidence. What is it?
