sounds good Phil, please let me know if there is any way I can be of further help. There are some folks I could put We-Chyung in touch with who could certainly help him out with w/ the legal issues, if he's interested. As you might imagine, I have some experience and numerous contacts now in this area ;)
[Benny Peiser] 24. At no time since Keenan and Wigley raised significant doubts about the reliability of Chinese climate data has Jones taken public steps to clear up the discrepancies regarding Wang's claims and data. It is unacceptable that the scientist who disseminates a data product on which international treaties are based, as well as IPCC reports and countless government policies, should actively seek to suppress information that calls the quality of the data into question, especially after one [of] his colleagues and a leading authority has advised him that Keenan's evidence about the data appeared to be legitimate. Comparable behaviour in the private sector would be subject to severe sanction.
