Submission + - ClimateGate 2.0? (

CPTreese writes: An interesting article about information exchange between climate scientists. Emails posted to a Russian server apparently show that Dr. Phil Jones was reticent to show raw data from land stations. East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit has been receiving US Department of Energy funding for this project. While this raw data is now available, the algorithms used to translate the data largely remain a secret. Until this data is revealed many skeptics will remain critical of what seems to be a campaign of obfuscation.
