I did a follow-up post on my last one over at By Common Consent. It turns out the guy I was critiquing actually came around and apologized for slandering Jonathan Overpeck. My response gets at some of his remaining concerns about the latest batch of stolen e-mails.
I learned some interesting things. E.g., I found out that Phil Jones had discussed the problems of onerous FOI requests, proprietary data, and so on, before the scandal broke in 2009. In other words, all that stuff the panels investigating “climategate” said about why Jones dodged some FOI requests and didn’t release all of his raw data… was right there in the stolen e-mails, too.
