The Climatic Research Unit (CRU) Submission to the Independent Climate Change E-mail Review

The Independent Climate Change E-mail Review is publishing submissions on its Evidence page. The Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia has a submission titled SUBMISSION BY THE CLIMATIC RESEARCH UNIT TO THE INDEPENDENT CLIMATE CHANGE E-MAIL REVIEW 1 MARCH 2010:

The Climatic Research Unit, at the University of East Anglia, welcomes the opportunity to answer the questions asked of it by the Independent Climate Change E-mail Review. It
recognises that the theft of e-mails in November 2009 has led to many questions in the media
and the blogosphere. It accepts that there are justifiable questions which may be asked, following the publication of the stolen e-mails which represented a tiny fraction of those
received and sent by the Unit during the period in question.

However, the justifiable questions have been swamped, we believe, by ill-informed opinion and distortion.

Consequently, we are pleased to be able to address both the reasonable and informed concerns and the greater number of misinformed or distorted concerns through the medium of our answers to the specific questions asked of the Unit by the Independent Climate Change Email Review.

We note that, in some instances, the questions stray into areas which appear to be beyond the issues raised by the stolen e-mails, but – similarly – we welcome the opportunity to respond to them.

The questions are answered in sections corresponding to the eight main issues identified by the Review. [See full text.]
