Climategate 2.0: Ducking confrontation on ‘Great Global Warming Swindle’

The terrific Martin Durkin documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle” sent the Climategaters running for cover from media inquiry.

From the Climategate 2.0 collection, when BBC journalist Julia Barry tried to get University of East Anglia alarmist David Viner to discuss “The Great Global Warming Swindle” on the BBC, Viner ducked, stating:

… not willing to get into a discussion with an “idiot”…

He then forwarded Barry request to other UEA alarmists who also apparently ducked.

The e-mail exchange is below.

Read the Climategate 2.0 collection.

Read Steve Milloy’s March 2007 FoxNews.com column about The Great Global Warming swindle: “Must-See Global Warming TV”.

can I just ask you if you think there’s a growing number of scientists who are questioning
whether man’s activities responsible for global warming – or if the C4 docco just got
together a handful of climate change deniers who don’t represent anybody (be honest
now??!!)
