Guardian Blogger Who Celebrated Wikileaks Cabals Upset Over Leaked ClimateGate Emails

by | 7th, December 2011

DAMIAN Carrington writes a bog for the Guardian. He’s upset:

There is a scandal behind the latest release of emails written by climate scientists but is not about climate science. The true scandal is how, two years on, no one still has a clue who obtained the emails…The police inquiry, led by Norfolk Constabulary, has spent nothing on the investigation since March this year, and only £6,000 in the six months before that… That is not good enough.

Until we know the identity and motivation of those behind the release of the emails, they still present a danger….

Not naming your sources is a scandal? Carrington may care to read The Observer’s views on The Guardian’s Amelia Hill. One key point the paper makes is:

“Journalists have a duty to defend their sources.”

Also, can this be the same Damien Carrington who studied the Wikileaks cables. His “key remaining questionsdon’t ask why the cabals were leaked. But of Climategate, he wants to know why those emails were leaked before the UN’s annual climate change negotiations. Was there an agenda? Maybe the Guardian’s former partner Julian Assange leaked them, too?

As as for the cabals being dangerous… Well, they were. Yes.
