Wall Street Journal: ”The picture that emerges of prominent climate-change scientists from the more than 3,000 documents and emails accessed by hackers and put on the Internet this week is one of professional backbiting and questionable scientific practices.”
Canada Free Press: ”The Death Blow to Climate Science”. (Var medveten om att artikeln är skriven av den kände skeptikern Tim Ball.) ”Jones claims the files were obtained illegally as if that absolves the content. It doesn’t and it is enough to destroy all their careers”, skriver Tim Ball. ”CO2 never was a problem and all the machinations and deceptions exposed by these files prove that it was the greatest deception in history, but nobody is laughing. It is a very sad day for science and especially my chosen area of climate science. As I expected now it is all exposed I find there is no pleasure in “I told you so.””
Det finns numera en sökbar databas som omfattar de hackade dokumenten. Där kan man söka efter de termer man är intresserad av.
Roy Spencer tror inte att ClimateGate innebär slutet för IPCC, men att den avslöjar vad som egentligen sker bakom klimatforskningens kulisser. ”Hopefully, the scientist is more interested in discovering how nature really works, rather than twisting the data to support some other agenda. It took me years to develop the discipline to question every research result I got. It is really easy to be wrong in this business, and very difficult to be right. Skepticism really is at the core of scientific progress. I’m willing to admit that I could be wrong about all my views on manmade global warming. Can the IPCC scientists admit the same thing?”
Bloggen Bishop Hill antyder att det kan komma fler obehagliga avslöjanden om CRU.
