Climategate 2.0: Snarking (Part 1) — Top German climate scientist gets OBE for ‘spouting bullsh**’

Phil Jones and Ray Bradley are green with envy.

From the Climategate 2.0 collection, Phil Jones and Ray Bradley totally trash colleague Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, the chief climate advisor to the German government and recipient of a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) from Queen Elizabeth II.

Bradley writes to Jones:

… I just read that Schellnhuber got an OBE!!!! I didn’t know you got those for spouting bullshit, but I guess that’s how far standards have fallen. Pretty amazing…

Jones responds,

We all agree on that!

Ray,
I got the zeroth-order draft of the IPCC Chapter on Atmospheric Obs. in on
Friday and have been looking forward to a break ! I’m also off tomorrow to Stockholm
for 3 days and will be away all the following week in Reading and Exeter.
Attached is the press release The Met Office and UEA put out on Dec 16, 2004.
If you want to piece something together from this you’re most welcome to. If you use
any of the diagrams you’d better check with David Parker
(david.parker@metoffice.gov.uk).
The diagrams will get updated once Dec04 data are fully in, but it shouldn’t change
anything. The diagrams will be in the WMO Statement of the Climate for 2004
which generally comes out for WMO Day, which is in early May. You might
like to wait for that publication/pdf to come out.
If you go here [2]http://www.wmo.ch/index-en.html
and click on WMO press release no 718 you get a lot more.
I’ve not the energy Mike has to knock these things off in a few minutes !
Hope all is well with you !
Cheers
Phil
PS keith is still writing some bits for the draft of the paleo chapter. The deadline
for
submission of chapters was Jan 14!
