Climategate 3.0: Mike Mann urges Phil Jones to get George Monbiot to attack Christopher Booker

“Might want to see if George Monbiot wants to *review* the [Booker’s new] book. hat would be both amusing and satisfying.”

If Jones actually made the request, Monbiot might not have had time to do the dirty deed as Climategate exploded weeks later.

Hi Phil,
Might want to see if George Monbiot wants to *review* the book.
That would be both amusing and satisfying,

Lindzen was on Ch 7 of the TAR. According to Kevin who was also an LA, he did
little in the
way of writing!
Keith’s Yamal web page will hopefully be up today – will email when it is.
Played Bridge on Sunday in Norfolk and won. The rest of my team and most of
the others seem
to read the Sunday Telegraph! Every table I went to had to suggest they get
the Observer
delivered instead!
Cheers

  1. Back in the 60’s (or was it the 70’s?) the big fad in psychology was “Transactional Analysis” – a term for the study of human psychology through the classification of their interpersonal interactions (‘transactions’). A pop-culture paperback that came out at this time was Eric Berne’s “Games People Play.” One of the chapters was devoted to the game called “Let’s You and Him Fight.”
    It appears there are still some legs to this concept.
