Thousands more emails from the university at the centre of the "climategate" row over global warming science two years ago appear to have been posted online.Nature News
Yet another ClimateGate? - November 22, 2011A new set of climate science-related emails and documents has apparently been released from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the UK.
The files, including more than 5,000 emails of as yet unconfirmed authenticity, have been posted on an anonymous server in Russia.
A text file included with the released emails and documents seems to quote prominent researchers discussing which each other the quality of climate reconstructions and the possibility that natural climate fluctuations might be behind the 20th century warming trend.
“I find myself in the strange position of being very skeptical of the quality of all present [climate] reconstructions,” one researcher is quoted as having allegedly remarked.
New release' of climate emailsJoanne Nova writes of FOIA2022 -
The university says it has "no evidence of a recent breach in our systems", and suggests that the cache - posted on a Russian server - has "the appearance of having been held back after the theft of data and emails in 2009 to be released at a time designed to cause maximum disruption to the imminent international climate talks".
Its statement continues: "This appears to be a carefully-timed attempt to reignite controversy over the science behind climate change when that science has been vindicated by three separate independent inquiries and number of studies - including, most recently, the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature group."
Breaking! Apparently, more emails released. Climategate II?
