“Third Climategate report ‘imminent’ – expect a shortage of whitewash in stores this weekend“. Steve Mosher prepares the ground for more bad news. This is a re-posting of a denialist Telegraph article about Sir Muir Russell’s inquiry into the infamous but insignificant “Climategate” scandal. So far it’s two denialist strike-outs.
Let the disgruntled muttering begin!
I think most people have been quite sensible in waiting for the various inquiries each to report. The denialist blogs really do stand as outliers in the way they have prejudged the affair, both before and after the reports.
I await the publication of this final report, but I will say now that, whatever it says, it will be taken very seriously.
[It should be taken seriously, but the way the denialist noise machine is winding up again indicates that they have their responses planned. There were minor, but worthwhile recommendations from both previous inquiries.- Ben]
