Now that we all have time to take a breath from the whirlwind of Climategate, Copenhagen, and the Christmas/New Year holiday, Steve McIntyre has written up a timeline on how the Climategate emails came to be public knowledge on the climate blogs.
Titled The Mosher Timeline, for our well known and frequent commenter Steven Mosher, it ties all of the blogs together that received the Russian FTP server link to the FOIA2009.zip file as a comment from the person(s) who leaked the file.
There are familiar but disassociated bits of knowledge tied together with new information to create a complete picture.
It is well worth the read, here.
For those who didn’t know, our own Charles The Moderator figured greatly in this timeline, props to him.
