Mailonline 21 December: Government scientists DID collude with government officials to hide research that didn`t fit their apocalyptic global warming!
The Mailonline reports that more than 5000 documents have been leaked online purporting to be the correspondence of climate scientists at the University of East Anglia who were previously accused of "massaging" evidence of man made climate change.. The report goes on to say that the new e-mails appear to show systematic suppression of evidence, and even publication of reports that scientists knew to be based on flawed approaches.. It reveals that government employees of the Department of Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) are also implicated and it quotes an official from Defra as saying that colleagues working on climate science should give the government "a strong message"!. The Mail report says that the e-mails paint a picture of scientists selectively using data, and colluding with politicians to misuse scientific information. It goes on to say that other scientists are clearly against such a policy, but some seemed happy to collude with concealing and destroying evidence. One scientist is quoted as saying" I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run" The e-mails were posted on a Russian server Sinwt.ru as a downloadable ZIP file.

In a letter strongly critical of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change former Chancellor Nigel Lawson`s Global Warming Policy Foundation(www.thegwpf.org) said "the BBC in determining its policy towards the coverage of global warming ought to revert to the impartiality laid down in its charter"
