Good wholesome slam...

I haven't forgotten the ongoing war against the ongoing scientific and political fraud that is AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming). But the fighting has settled down into trench warfare, and there haven't been many short and pithy quotes to blog. Here's James Delingpole at his best...(thanks to Climate Realists)

Motes, beams and the University of East Anglia:

An email reaches me from the office of Sir Edward Acton, Vice Chancellor of the University of East Anglia. Apparently in my blogs I have expressed "inaccurate and vituperative views" about certain members of his hugely distinguished and globally admired seat of learning, and unless I apologise and retract he will report me to the Press Complaints Commission.

As you can imagine I am keen as mustard to soothe the wounded feelings of Sir Edward and his world-renowned staff, but not if it means retracting statements which are patently true. For example, Sir Edward takes exception to my description of Prof Phil Jones, the head of his Climatic Research Unit, as "disgraced, FOI-breaching, email-deleting, scientific-method-abusing." Clearly poor Sir Edward has not been kept in the loop by his minions, so I'd better break the sad news about something really quite embarrassing that happened to his university last year. It was a story called Climategate and involved numerous leaked emails, many of which showed the aforementioned Prof Jones in a not-altogether flattering light....

Read on, and be reminded of how ugly the Climategate e-mails really were. And remember, if anyone complains that these items are being unfairly "taken out of context," they look much worse if you place them in context!

I have lots more "warming" posts here.
