Some more of the emails stolen from the Climate Research Centre in 2009 have been released. This time they are accompanied by a readme with out-of-context quotes that asserts the purpose of the release is information transparency, but that\’s an obvious lie, since they\’ve sat on them for two years and released them just before Durban conference. The timing suggests that the people behind the theft and release have a financial interest in preventing mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions.
Release of information just before a conference means people have a financial interest in the outcome of that conference?
So every Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, Christian Aid, Action Aid, Debby Doane\’s World Development Movement and the entire alphabet soup of TJN, TUC, RHT etc, we can simply reject any and every one of their reports that come out just before a conference because they are obviously being released with the intention of swaying the outcome of said conference because they\’ve a financial interest in said outcome?
Well, if you say so Tim.
Myself, I wouldn\’t actually try to use that particular piece of logic. Oh, sure, it might actually be correct, but I think you\’ll find your fellow campaigners would be a little unhappy with the implications of it.
