Compare the first and second Phil Campbell quotes in bold below.
// In an interview last year with Chinese State Radio, enquiry panel member Philip Campbell, editor-in-chief of Nature said: “The scientists have not hidden the data. If you look at the emails there is one or two bits of language that are jargon used between professionals that suggest something to outsiders that is wrong.”
Dr Campbell has now withdrawn his membership of the panel, telling Channel 4 News: “I made the remarks in good faith on the basis of media reports of the leaks.
“As I have made clear subsequently, I support the need to for a full review of the facts behind the leaked e-mails.
It’s just another scientists playing politician and despite his necessary resignation, the nomination of this polyscientician shows the bias being intentionally built into the committee. This committee doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in you know where of an unbiased review.
Maybe they should take the associated press’s lead and lock five know-nothing left-biased reporters in a room for 8 hours a day and see what they think of the emails.
