The greatest scientific and political scandal in modern times continues to unravel and starting to have more and more political consequences. It’s about time.
Interesting, the first politician in a government to actually acknowledge the Climate Gate and that something inappropriate happened. When are the rest going to wake up?
Lawrence Solomon: Canada’s environment minister wants to “get to the bottom” of Climategate
Posted: December 03, 2009, 4:24 AM by Lawrence Solomon
Speaking of Climategate, Jim Prentice, Canada’s environment minister and a participant in the Copenhagen talks next week, told the press today after Question Period that ”there were some serious allegations of impropriety and some serious questions about the quality of the scientific work that was done” at the Climatic Research Unit of East Anglia University.
Mr. Prentice, who views the science overall as being ”relatively clear,” also sidestepped a question about climate change being a big lie.
Question: You don’t see this – I mean there are people from your province, from all provinces who see this as the smoking gun that there is some sort of big lie out there about climate change. You just don’t buy that?
Hon. Jim Prentice: As I said, something quite inappropriate seems to have happened at this institution, the East Anglia Institution. I think we all want to get to the bottom of that, what that actually was.
Mr. Prentice, who has been criticized by environmental activists for failing to make a firm commitment at Copenhagen, indicated today that Canada’s position at Copenhagen would not change.
