Why do these quotes sound so drearily familiar?
“It is inappropriate for you to question the motives or quality of our science.”
“You will not last long in your career.”
“I hope you will refrain from contacting me again.”
Because they are the typical response of a climate scientist desperate to avoid sharing data [or avoid being caught out – Ed]. Sounds like the kind of tone you would get from Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann, or our friend from CRU, Phil Jones, who once famously said:
“Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it?”
