Climategate 2009. Much smoke for nothing? Opportunity missed!

Was there a scientific scandal in climate change matters almost one dozen years ago? “Climategate” began in November 2009 with the hacking of a server at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) by an external attacker, copying thousands of emails and computer files (the Climatic Research Unit documents) see: Wikipedia .  One Continue Reading
