climategate – read what the whistleblower actually wrote

Re Climategate: Listen to what the whistleblower said – and what he/she didn’t say.

It is worthwhile noting that the whistleblower described the file on the site as 

File description: climate audit whistleblower FOIA wuwt 

In other words, the so called “hacker” used the word “whistleblower” when uploading the files. He also did not say that he got them from CRU although we are assuming he did. See my posting below re the FOIA directory in the US. 

Below is the original posting on the Air Vent site.

We feel that climate science is, in the current situation, too important to be kept under wraps.

We hereby release a random selection of correspondence, code, and documents.

Hopefully it will give some insight into the science and the people behind it.
