Climategate 2.0: Alarmists looked to ally with Goldman Sachs

Then-Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson was, after all, chairman of the Nature Conservancy.

From the Climategate 2.0 collection, the alarmists look to hook up with Goldman Sachs as a strategic ally in 1998:

Jean,

We (Mike H) have done a modest amount of work on degree-days for G-S. They
now want to extend this. They are involved in dealing in the developing
energy futures market.

G-S is the sort of company that we might be looking for a ‘strategic
alliance’ with. I suggest the four of us meet with ?? (forgotten his name)
for an hour on the afternoon of Friday 12 June (best guess for Phil & Jean
– he needs a date from us). Thanks.

Trevor

As Steve Milloy’s Free Enterprise Action Fund pointed out, Goldman Sachs fully supported global warming alarmism.

  1. You know, even without the science, this email alone would convince me that agw alarmism is a straightforward scam. Thanks for running these details. I’m still working my way through them at the moment – if only someone could crack the encryption on the rest but it seems, sadly, unlikely. I liked the idea (which I think I read at WUWT) that this block of mails is the equivalent of a loaded data gun pointed at the heads of the team and their allies, to make them realise that *everything is there, so they need to start walking away.
