I have just one comment on the Climategate reports and that is
People who ask the world to spend $45 trillion on a project are surely under an
obligation to show their raw data and their workings. If instead,
publish only `adjusted data' rather than raw
refuse reasonable requests for computer
break freedom of information laws,
use `tricks' to `hide' inconvenient data,
base an argument on one tree,
use inappropriate statistical techniques,
break their own rules on sources,
and urge each other to delete rather than release
then I don't think they should go to jail or be called
But I do think their request should be politely turned down.
