Mann admits deleting all criticisms from 'McIntyre and his minions' on RealClimate

subject: attacks against Keith
to: Phil Jones , Tim Osborn
   Phil, Tim,

   I only learned of Keith's recent health issues when I was talking w/ Malcolm today. Please
   pass along to him my wishes for a speedy recovery. We need him!

   Meanwhile, I suspect you've both seen the latest attack against his Yamal work by McIntyre.
    Gavin and I (having consulted also w/ Malcolm) are wondering what to make of this, and
   what sort of response---if any---is necessary and appropriate. So far, we've simply deleted
   all of the attempts by McIntyre and his minions to draw attention to this at RealClimate.

   any insights and/or advice you can provide would be extremely helpful. If you're
   uncomfortable doing this by email, I can be reached most of the day at my cell phone
   814-777-3136.  Will be in a meeting most of the day, but can run out of the room as

   I would think it is probably best not to bother Keith with any of this. He just needs to
   get well, and I suspect it would be better for his wellness not to even know about this,

   we expect lots more attacks like this over the next several weeks as the U.S. senate
   debates cap & trade legislation.

   thanks for any help w/ this.

  1. Thanks Mr Mann! Because your "science was in" we now have a bloody stupid carbon tax in Australia!

  2. Suggest you redact Mann's cell number.

  3. I'm not sure this will get much traction. After all, they're talking about RC.... It's been long established that the worms at RC have continually deleted comments there. In fact, that's why McIntyre started his own blog, ClimateAudit, years ago. Well, he actually had a site prior to ClimateAudit...... "[Climate Audit was started on Jan 31, 2005. Prior to its startup I had some notes at a prior website www.climate2003.com, responding here to blog criticisms at Deltoid and similar sites.]"

    But, it is worth noting. Keep up the good work!
