The anonymous source calling himself "FOIA" has released another trove of e-mails of the fraudulent climate campaigners sometimes known as the "Hockey Team" -- the likes of Mann, Jones, Bradley, Hughes, Briffa, Trenberth, Ammann, Wohl, Hansen, Schmidt, et al. The release comes via sending a password to a select list of climate bloggers, including Steve McIntyre (climateaudit.org), Anthony Watts (wattsupwiththat.com), Andrew Montford (bishophill.squarespace.com), and Tom Nelson (tomnelson.blogspot.com). (If you don't check all of these blogs regularly, you should.)
Along with the password came a letter from Mr. FOIA, not giving his name, but containing a long statement of his motivations for what he has done. I don't know who he is, but he certainly sounds a lot like me.
If someone is still wondering why anyone would take these risks, or sees only a breach of privacy here, a few words… The first glimpses I got behind the scenes did little to garner my trust in the state of climate science — on the contrary. I found myself in front of a choice that just might have a global impact. Briefly put, when I had to balance the interests of my own safety, privacy\career of a few scientists, and the well-being of billions of people living in the coming several decades, the first two weren’t the decisive concern.
It was me or nobody, now or never. . . . Most would agree that climate science has already directed where humanity puts its capability, innovation, mental and material “might”. The scale will grow ever grander in the coming decades if things go according to script. We’re dealing with $trillions and potentially drastic influence on practically everyone. . . . It makes a huge difference whether humanity uses its assets to achieve progress, or whether it strives to stop and reverse it, essentially sacrificing the less fortunate to the climate gods.
I'm particularly taken by that last line. The thing that I most can't understand about the climate campaign is how the so-called "progressives" -- the New York Times, the Washington Post, the left-wing bloggers -- are totally willing to sacrifice the poor of the world to a life without electricity to appease the green climate gods.
FOIA admits that he has not gone through all of the 200,000+ e-mails in this collection, and is looking for others to do it. It could be a long process of drip, drip, drip as careful readers put together pieces of the puzzle.
