Question: Out of the following events, which is the most serious of them all?

  1. agw-conspiracy-illus-20090802-smallThe Heartland Institute, a think-tank which opposes global warming regulation (among other things), was found to move its ‘conference’ audios around on its web server, causing some hyperlinks to the audios to become broken for a short while.
  2. Global warming ‘skeptic’ Anthony Watts reports that another ‘skeptic’, Steve McIntyre, suddenly finds that some files originally on a climate research center’s web server are now missing. The files might have been purged, they might have been moved; who knows. But let’s just assume that there’s something really big and really sinister going on. [cached]
  3. A think-tank was found to send anti-climate-regulation letters with forged letterheads to a US Senator. (A brave act of civil disobedience, I suppose.) [cached]
  4. Watts slaps a bogus DMCA complaint onto a YouTuber for reproducing the cover page for one of his ‘reports’. [cached]
  5. I need a drink.

Answer: According to Watts, the correct answer is 2. But I beg to differ: the answer should be 5.



  1. Welcome back, been missing you 🙂
