Climategate 3.0: Phil Jones tries and fails to have skeptic Dick Lindzen’s comments removed from draft IPCC chapter

“I didn’t succeed in getting some of Dick Lindzen’s comments removed.”

The e-mail is below.

Kevin,
Thanks for the reviews I didn’t have. The WG1 AR4 as a whole was my
reading of
the email from Martin Manning about planning for LA2 in Beijing (his email
of March 29).
This was in the penultimate paragraph of a long email. We are down for a
presentation
(20 minutes) on Day 3 at LA2. I’ve not looked at the other chapters, except
for a glance
at Chs 6 and 9.
I see I missed a bit in the this email. WG1 will send compiled comments
from their
reviewers by April 11, if all reviewers get their comments in by April 8.
I also meant to add in the email earlier today that the NRC review
process appeared
to go OK from my perspective. I had only to review Ch 5 and the Exec
Summary. Although
the latter will require some work, Ch 5 came off lightly compared to
Chapters 1 and 6,
Back to our ZOD, reducing the size is difficult, but it is something we
will have to
come to grips with.
and also in a lesser sense to 2-4. The authors have to deal with Fu et al
explicitly
instead
of saying it is controversial. I didn’t succeed in getting some of Dick
Lindzen’s comments
removed. Chapter 6 was a complete mess.
It did seem odd that our review will get published – why, when the final
report will
be
quite different.
