Nothing New Under the Sun
Posted by Jeff Condon on December 18, 2011
Sara Reardon was hardly alone when she wrote - “There’s nothing really new in a second massive cache of e-mails”, on the same day that the huge pile was released. A “massive” cache with nothing new?….hmm. Just how it is that she knew that is beyond me. But a lot of reporters seemed to teleconnect the same point made first by surReal Climate. I have still read only a fraction (being tired of it) and today we have a unique new bit for the public. Remember those august committees formed by the government to see if the government might have screwed up? Ya know, the ones who decided that the government funded people were innocent of wrongdoing?
One determination by the committees was that nobody had deleted any emails to cover anything up. Well it looks like they may have accidentally gotten the answer right. Instead of deletion, they were copied (cut and paste) to a personal portable USB drive. David Holland has an excellent guest post on the matter at Bishop Hill blog.
We have emails from all in Ch 6 to say the group doesn’t want emails made available.
I’ve read the USB quote by David Holland in the emails. I’ve been slowly compiling them – very slowly. It is fantastically boring reading the work of people who are poorly qualified. In the end, I have to agree with Sara on this one. We already knew they did it, even though the skeptic-deaf adjudicators claimed they didn’t.
