The Corner

The one and only.



Here’s an interesting response to the Warmergate (Climategate, take your pick) scandal from Eduardo Zorita, an individual who contributed to the fourth IPCC report (and he’s not somebody who believes that AGW is a hoax). The whole thing is well worth reading, but note, in particular, this:

I am also aware that in this thick atmosphere -and I am not speaking of greenhouse gases now- editors, reviewers and authors of alternative studies, analysis, interpretations,even based on the same data we have at our disposal, have been bullied and subtly blackmailed. In this atmosphere, Ph D students are often tempted to tweak their data so as to fit the ‘politically correct picture’. Some, or many issues, about climate change are still not well known. Policy makers should be aware of the attempts to hide these uncertainties under a unified picture. I had the ‘pleasure’ to experience all this in my area of research.
