The original article is by none other than Andrew Bolt of the Herald Sun.
Here’s an excerpt from WUWT:
Somebody needs to educate Quiggin on the CRU ftp security blunder that was “the mole”. He doesn’t get it, and then proceeds to use that as “evidence” against McIntyre. It’s comical.
Here’s Professor Quiggin’s page at the University of Queensland:
Needless to say that there are already 325+ comments on the post.
Here’s a few excerpts:
Jim has this bit of reasoned commentary:
Does it strike anyone else that Professor John Quiggin’s photo above looks like an inmate or PD dept. intake photo? Something The Smoking Gun or TMZ would have on their websites?
Is Professor John Quiggin projecting?
Kay has a sense of perspective:
Wow. That just blows my mind. Do climate scientists have ANY sense of ethics whatsoever?
SouthAmericanGirls points the finger:
It is more obvious than ever that Big Academia, Big Media and Big Bureaucracy is a gigantic machinery for promoting more opressive power for politicians & bureaucrats based on theories that are garbage or downright fraud. I do not mean that all Academia, Media and Bureaucracy are so, I say many of them perpetually promote giving even more opressive power to politicians and bureaucrats; making gargantuan amounts of money through political opression is maybe the oldest profession, having an insane lust for getting opressive power over people is one of the oldest and most destructive passions so if you want opressive power you speack about it in the press or you promote papers according to your point in Academia.
There’s much more where that came from but I’ll leave it to you to read it yourself.
Alreayd there’s 7,280 references to “McIntyre accused” on the web. And apparently, the prof’s webpage is down due to the traffic.
