    Climategate 2.0: Systematic deletion of e-mails | JunkScience.com

    Phil Jones’ order to delete e-mails to avoid Freedom of Information requests was certainly executed.

    From the Climategate 2.0 collection (#5267), Tim Osborn gives instructions for complying with Phil Jones’ directive:

    Hi Mike,

    in looking further afield than just my files, I see some other files that are no longer
    needed. Please can you delete:
    [1]ftp://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/people/craigwallace/ folder and its content (an old word doc) as
    I know these aren’t needed any more.
    I’d also guess that
    [2]ftp://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/people/davidviner/ folder and its contents can go (files all
    dated >8 years ago).
    Effie’s folder is also empty.
    mickkelly contains only holiday snaps!
    Cheers
    Tim

    Dear all,
    After the recent problems with ClimateAudit, Phil has asked for all
    unnecessary files to be purged from the FTP server.
    You have a directory in /cru/ftp1/people. Please could you take a look
    to see what files need to remain there?
    If you would like assistance with this, let me know.
    Please confirm by email when you’ve done it, so I can cross you off the
    list.
    thanks
    Mike
