Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Does anyone imagine this is not standard behavior in the academic scientific communities?

I remember one of my grad school professors explaining to us that when he evaluated NSF grant applications he could tell the quality by looking at the list of proposers and seeing if he knew them or their advisers.

Gaming funding is one thing. That's just office politics as usual.

Gaming data is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

Which of those this represents is unclear to me, but if Nomad says it smells fishy, then I'm prepared to hear him out.

I guess it's time for that. Patience...

I too would be interested in any evidence these emails provide of 'gaming data'. So far none of the examples that have been making the rounds in the blogosphere (eg. the 'trick to hide the decline' email or the harry_read_me document) have been convincing.

The whole affair is a pretty nasty blow in terms of PR and perceptions - unfortunately what the warmist side of this controversy have failed to understand (apart from a few people like Brad DeLong) is that they are in a memetic war.

The warmists may have won in the science, but they are being rope-a-doped by the Moranos of this world.

Luke
