Climategate 2.0: the Warmists’ seven stages of grief

Climategate 2.0 – the gift that goes on giving.

And you know how good it is from the reaction of the trolls. They’re going mental. On the one hand they’d like to insist it’s a non-story. On the other hand, the more shrilly they shriek it’s a non-story the more evident it becomes just what a great story it is.

Here’s an amusing analysis of the warmist trolls’ various lines of defence, which I picked up from the comments at Watts Up With That: (H/T Alix James – and a big thanks to all those of you who helped me find him)

Stage 1: they aren’t real emails
Stage 2: they are real emails but they aren’t in context
Stage 3: they are in context, but that’s how scientists work
Stage 4: ok, this isn’t really science, but you guys stole the emails!
Stage 5: this is old stuff
Stage 6: this is nothing
Stage 7: look everyone! Winter storm! See, we have proof of our theories now.

Repeat as needed

    Climategate 1.0, they had two years with the emails and all they could show was a few cherry picked words, scientists arguing and discussing opinions.

    Where’s the conspiracy? Oh yeah, forgot, ‘hide the decline’ aka ‘the divergence problem’, was so well hidden Jones glaringly published it the IPCC AR4 Chapter 6 page 40 onwards for the whole world to see. And Trenberth’s ‘travesty’ email? The travesty is none of the denialists could be bothered to read the full email.
