More Impact from Climategate
Posted by Jeff Id on March 14, 2010
Having the blog on which Climategate was noticed is kind of fun. At my request, my immediate family and friends don’t tell people about it though – haha. It didn’t stop the big-brother British anti-terror cops from finding me. Everyone in the media assumed that the tAV crowd doesn’t believe in warming at all, and despite my efforts the media portrayed the whole thing as a denier site/sites. Anyway, I love reading stories like this, it makes all the huge effort over the past year and a half worth while.
However, most of the readers at tAV were already involved in reading global warming science, and many were more so than myself. I suspect there are enough of you that the emails didn’t contain surprises, only proof of the corruption we knew existed. There is this quote at the end of the article.
The emails, which dealt a severe blow to the credibility of environmental science, were seized upon by global warming skeptics as evidence that academics were massaging the figures.
Since the leak, belief in global warming has fallen from 41 per cent to 26 per cent.
I don’t really know if Climategate emails had an effect on global warming of informed readers, but I wonder….
