Pachauri on CRU HackDecember 9, 2009
Here are his statements from yesterday:
“One can only surmise that those who have carried out this act have done it with the very clear intention as to influence the process in Copenhagen – but, barring a few isolated voices, people over here are totally convinced of the solidity of the findings of the IPCC report.”
No kidding… both that the objective was to influence Copenhagen and that the parties at Copenhagen are univocal on the science.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon concurs: “Nothing that has come out in the public as a result of the recent email hackings has cast doubt on the basic scientific message on climate change and that message is quite clear – that climate is changing much, much faster than we realized and we human beings are the primary cause,” Ban Ki-moon states, according to Reuters.
UPDATE: Jason Delborne, Assistant Professor at Colorado School of Mines, offers this nice analysis.
