Once again we rely on British newspapers to report the stories our own newspapers don’t think is important. The latest revelation that American Journalists have no interest in reporting is that Climategate scientists conduct was not only unethical but also illegal:
From the U.K. Daily Mail:
Scientists broke the law by hiding climate change data: But legal loophole means they won’t be prosecuted. The “loophole” is a statute of limitations that is only 6 months. I guess if you hide the decline and hide the hiding of the decline you’re eventually out of the woods.
And From the London Times:
Scientists in stolen e-mail scandal hid climate data [in violation of the UK Freedom of Information Act]
