    Peter Gleick – the Johann Hari of climate 'science' – Telegraph Blogs

    And the fallout for Mr Gliarcken:

    You cant really blame Gulagen, though, can you? This kind of thing worked for Stalin.

    But what is it with the Warmista crowd? I mean if the science is really behind them as they claim, why would someone destroy their own career to fake smear bullshit on an opposing group? And why would said fraud be celebrated among Warmistas until it was plainly obvious even to the most blind bats that the two page memo was a fraud and Gleiken was the fraudster?

    the ironic part to this story is that Gleick got the background information to successfully trick someone from Heartland into releasing memos because he was given an itinerary of HI's conference when he (Gleick) was invited to debate the issues with Taylor. Gleick turned down the offer, used the info to impersonate a board member and get confidential information, then concocted a separate fake memo because there was no 'smoking gun' in what he had purloined.

    what an asshole. did you know he was a member of the AGU's committee on ethics in science?
