    The whole thread is now about climate scientists, criminal investigations and their misdemeanors.

    It's ended up dragging them through the mud again.

    I don't think that was the original aim.

    You're just wierd.
    Tongue in cheek but humour isn't your strong point.

    But it does like your "whistle blower" may have commited an offence doesn't it.

    Personally, I will believe that making public the sources and destination of the sceptics £6million is in the public interest
    the same day that the warmist £600million sources and uses are similarly published.

    Not really. I think Gleick made a criminal error of judgement which has ruined his individual credibility, and no doubt will be exploited to try and damage the movement he supports.

    However, this is akin to a reporter posing as a third party to obtain information in the public interest. The leaked documents are highly damaging to Heartland's claim to be an educational organisation exempt from tax, and no doubt the US IRS will be investigating. To recap

    It is the case that Heartland are proposing to use money from an anonymous multimillionaire to pay David Wojick, a lobbyist with a doctorate in epistimology, to create a school curriculum that is classic 'teach the controversy' where there is none, tactics borrowed from the creationist lobby.

    It is the case that they fund the 'NIPCC' report, which is scientific claptrap.

    It is the case that they slip Fred Singer, who disseminates demonstrably false information over the internet, $5K/month.

    George Monbiot – Plutocracy, Pure and Simple

    No climate scientist is facing the public prosecutor. You made that up.

    What he means is that private data has been publicised on the web. Compare to a fraudester divulging your private details on the web. Whatever happens you've been damaged.

    I suppose you must really regret bninging the topic up now. Eggs and faces spring to mind.

    Yet another climate scientist facing the public prosecutor.

    No one should feel any satisfaction in these events, which have been highly damaging to everyone touched by them, including both Heartland and Gleick.
