Prominent Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook’s comments were originally published on ABC News website in reaction to New York Times Columnist Paul Krugman’s dismissal of the significance of ClimateGate. Dr. Easterbrook is an Emeritus Professor at Western Washington University who has authored eight books and 150 journal publications. Easterbrook’s full resume is here.

Geologist Dr. Don Easterbrook – November 29, 2009

“I’ve spent four decades studying global climate change and as a scientist I am appalled at [NYT’s Paul] Krugman’s cavalier shrugging off the Hadley email scandal as ‘just the way scientists talk among themselves.’ That’s like saying it’s all right for politicians to be corrupt because that’s the way they are.”

“Legitimate scientists do not doctor data, delete data they don’t like, hide data they don’t want seen, hijack the peer review process, personally attack other scientists whose views differ from theirs, send fraudulent data to the IPCC that is used to perpetuate the greatest hoax in the history of science, provide false data to further legislation on climate change that will result in huge profits for corrupt lobbyists and politicians, and tell outright lies about scientific data.” [End Easterbrook statement.]
