Section 7 Responses

7. The keeping of accurate records of datasets, algorithms and software used in the analysis of climate data.  A key concern expressed by a number of correspondents and commentators has been as to whether datasets, and analyses based thereon, were deleted.

See specific questions but this topic need not  be confined to “deleted”. If data were lost or otherwise is unavailable then that is an appropriate comment topic. The Harry_Readme file will be included although it is ‘non-email’.

    “Despite this, IPCC Review Editor John Mitchell of the UK Met Office claimed to have destroyed all their working documents and correspondence pertaining to his duties as Review Editor and the Met Office also claims to have expunged all records.”

    This one is quite ironic given recent interviews of Phil:
