Climate change scandal deepens
as BBC expert claims he was sent ‘cover-up’ emails a month before they went public

The controversy surrounding the global warming scandal today deepened after a BBC correspondent admitted he was sent the leaked emails more than a month before they were made public.

Paul Hudson, weather presenter and climate change expert, claims the documents allegedly sent between some of the world’s leading scientists are of a direct result of an article he wrote.

In his BBC blog two days ago, Hudson said: ‘I was forwarded the chain of emails on the 12th October, which are comments from some of the world’s leading climate scientists written as a direct result of my article “Whatever Happened To Global Warming”.’

Now why would the BBC sit on a scoop like that for over a month?

Note also that this puts paid to the issue of hackers breaking in vice an insider leaking. This was a leak of a document package prepared for a FoI request.

Credibility [on the part of the BBC and the AGW crowd] is way down.
