The disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia - Science and Technology Committee Contents

Memorandum submitted by Ian Goddard (CRU 10)

  You are quoted in the press today as referring to those who are sceptical about the fashionable obsession with climate change as "climate change deniers".

  It is a great pity that the Chairman of the Commons Science and Technology Committee is so blatantly blinkered. If you believe that this sort of attitude to those who demand more evidence than a flawed film by Al Gore and a discredited Hockey Stick graph is helpful then you will not succeed in your goal of convincing the sceptics. After all, in the early 60s the fashion was to use many of the factors cited as causing warming today to support predictions of cooling and a mini Ice Age.

  Your Committee appears to be partisan in its treatment of this subject and I, for one, will view its pontifications accordingly.
