Further evidence inadvertently comes from Michael Schlesinger of the University of Illinois, who apparently threatened a New York Times reporter with "the Big Cutoff" on Saturday for writing an article that displeased him. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now." Now members of the society, including two eminent professors of physics at Princeton University, are circulating a letter calling Climate Gate "an international scientific fraud, the worst any of us have seen in our cumulative 223 years of APS membership." The letter calls on the society's management to withdraw the 2007 statement; I'll let you know what the American Physical Society has to say on the matter.

Schlesinger did not immediately respond to questions from CBS News on Monday. You can bookmark Declan's Taking Liberties site here, or subscribe to the RSS feed.
If foundational data about temperature measurements is in error, as critics now say is the case -- well, we might as well cancel the Copenhagen summit and tell all those inbound private jets to turn around and return home. negotiator says the country's confidence in temperature data is diminished.
To be sure, many -- perhaps even most -- climate researchers say any flaw in the leaked data assembled by the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) does not mean the theory of man-made global warming is false. Tempers are flaring: one of the East Anglia academics resorted to calling a skeptic "an asshole" on a live BBC television interview. Internal investigations are underway at the CRU and Penn State (with the state senate warning that the school's budget may be at risk), one estimate from a free-market group says that 12 of the 26 scientists who wrote the relevant section of a U. global warming report are "up to their necks in Climate Gate," and the BBC and independent analysts are evaluating the CRU's computer code and finding it lacking. England's meterological office has announed that it will begin a three-year review of its analysis, which relied heavily on CRU data.

Widening concern about the state of climate science after thousands of internal e-mails and computer files were posted on the Internet could jeopardize any agreement at this week's summit in Copenhagen.
Although a sweeping international deal already appeared unlikely, agreement on even less ambitious measures will be complicated by the growing Climate Gate scandal and questions that have been raised about the reliability of computer models linking global warming to man-made activities. N.'s top climate official, Yvo de Boer, acknowledged on Sunday that the data leak was damaging; domestically, Republicans are pressing the Obama administration to reevaluate its position.
