I read through Chick Keller’s defense of climate research (“Climate Research Lament,” Feb. 2) in the Monitor, because I know him personally and respect his broad scientific background and commitment to science. We have both worked in the energy/climate field, and although his credentials in climate science are much broader than mine, I have some credibility as a scientist and data analyst as well. Like Keller, I attach a great deal of credibility to peer-reviewed papers, respected journals and reputable scientists’ work.
He and I have been snookered.
While the “climategate” emails recently released to the public show the arrogance, disdain for the truth, blacklisting and perhaps outright fraud on the part of a few climate scientists, their real value may lie in forcing the original data used by climate researchers to be made available for public scrutiny.
