From Tom Nelson Lewandowsky’s skeptic seepage plus see the FOIA documents link added at the end.
[Stephan Lewandowsky at 2013 American Geophysical Union Chapman Conference] “Skeptic discourse has seeped into the scientific arena and may have contributed to shaping climate scientists thinking’ and interpretation…
…without any awareness on their part.
…strong reasons to expect seepage based on the psychological literature.”
Nothing worse than a weak minded Climate Scientist and seepage. I thought leakers were supposed to be OK though? Pass the Lewpaper.

Related, this quote from Mann:
Mann compares it to asymmetrical warfare.
“One side, us, the scientists, have to be true to our principles, have to be truthful to our audience, have to state our findings with appropriate caveats, and the other side sees absolutely no need to do that.”
Like maybe stating that you didn’t actually sample the majority of skeptics with a survey, but just send it to mostly to websites friendly to your crusade? And then lied about it when pressed on the issue and backdated your response to make it look like you revealed the information before skeptics figured it out?
Simon Turnill adds to the ‘Lewseepage’, with these FOI documents:
Hi Anthony and Steve,
I have put all the Lew FOI materials online in a ZIP file. Thought you may wish to let your readers know so they can trawl through the stuff themselves!
