Best Refutation Money Can Buy

Andrew Montford, the English blogger behind Bishop Hill, has penned a report for the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), a think tank set up by Lord Lawson of...get this...Blaby... that claims all the previous reports on the CRU Hack were "rushed and inadequate". Most important thing to know about the report:

Mr Montford...was paid £3,000 for carrying out the review...

3,000.00 GBP = 4,809.71 CAD

And while Fred Pearce thinks there are still lingering questions re CRU's response to FOI requests,I thought those had been answered here.

We know where that morning came from. Where Lord Blaby gets HIS dough is a mystery.

Isn't it amusing that Montford demands the highest standards of fact-finding and record-keeping from other people, even as he himself doesn't even try to follow the same standards?

And no doubt our commenter Fred here also thinks that this is OK.
