Welcome to the Crutape letters

Welcome to the The  Crutape letters. Blogging is the last thing on my to do list. But with the Climategate affair entering the investigation phase it seemed the right time to start a blog. I’m going to try to use the Blog to crowd source a response to the inquiry at UEA. We have a short deadline. This may not work as a method of putting together a response as I like to work alone. But the volume of work that has to be accomplished demands that I change that. My plan is simple. The inquiry has listed a series of questions that they will put to CRU. I intend to supply our own answers to those questions so that all the evidence is before the committee.  Rules of the road.

1. Be on topic. I don’t have time to moderate comments.

2. Use the comments to suggest references, arguments, or flaws in what I have written.

3. Volunteer. There are too many questions for me to handle in the two weeks we have to respond. If you want to volunteer the process is easy. Send a mail to   at climate audit if you are a regular there. Ask him to introduce you to me.

4. Real Names. If you want attribution in whatever work I submit, email me your real name.

5. START HERE

    US Current affairs background:
    http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/02/23/climategate-minority-report/#more-16658

    Washington, D.C.-The Minority Staff of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works released a report today titled, “‘Consensus’ Exposed: The CRU Controversy.” The report covers the controversy surrounding emails and documents released from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU). It examines the extent to which those emails and documents affect the scientific work of the UN’s IPCC, and how revelations of the IPCC’s flawed science impacts the EPA’s endangerment finding for greenhouse gases.
