DeathThreatGate?: Check out some actual pathetic emails that allegedly resulted in climate hoax scientists being "rushed to a secure location"

Do these scientists notify the Australian Federal Police every time they get the finger for cutting someone off in traffic?

Do they demand to be rushed to a secure location every time they hear that "monster" making a tapping sound in the basement?

No wonder these people think every weather fluctuation is a harbinger of global doom...

Climate scientists release abusive emails
“Just do your science or you will end up collateral damage in the war, GET IT,” reads one email.

“If we see you continue, we will get extremely organised and precise against you,” reads another.

Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, a marine scientist at the University of Queensland and a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), said he had agreed to the publication of some of the emails so people understand the abuse scientists face in their work.

“It’s a very small group of organised people behind these emails,” he said.
“Whether these individuals are in the pay of special interests or not is an interesting question – it is certainly suspicious that this type of activity is ramping up as we near the conclusion of the political process regarding the carbon tax.”
Blogger Graham Readfern said he published the emails to show how unacceptable some of the language of the debate had become.

You could consider that threats like this are heard in playgrounds every lunch time across the world and this might be so.

This is sheer beef-it-up spin, making a mountain out of  a molehill, clutching at straws in desperation to eek out a PR victory from the dregs of a fading scam.

There must have been more to the “death threats” than these surely?

If not, I take back any suggestion that these emails might have been purposefully done by people wanting to discredit skeptics. No organized campaign would be so pathetic.
