…with apologies to the Beatles and Sgt. Pepper. Most people don’t see how small and cliqueish climate science is, perhaps this perfect illustration courtesy of Climategate 2.0 will enlighten a few people. Thanks to Tom Nelson for ferreting this one out.
Teamwork: Tight little group of warmists write letters to support Michael Mann’s drive to make Phil Jones an AGU fellow
p.s. Kevin T is also writing a letter, as long as he can get it done before he heads out traveling in a couple days [Mann]…
This is coming along nicely. I’ve got 5 very strong supporting letter writers lined up to support your AGU Fellowship nomination (confidentially: Ben Santer, Tom Karl, Jean Jouzel, and Lonnie Thompson have all agreed, waiting to hear back from one more individual, maximum is six letters including mine as nominator). [Michael Mann]
Lonnie is also confirmed as supporting letter writer, along w/ Kevin, Ben, Tom K, and Jean J. (4 of the 5 are already AGU fellows, which I’m told is important! Surprisingly, Ben is not yet, nor am I. But David Thompson is (quite young for one of these). I’m guessing Mike Wallace and Susan Solomon might have had something to do w/ that ;) [Mann to Phil Jones]
