Defund Trenberth! UN IPCC’s Kevin Trenberth says Climategate caused a loss of funding
NOAA had its climate change-related research budget slashed by a fifth, affecting Professor Trenberth's peers, as a result of online campaigns against climate scientists, he said.Trenberth believes it had a big impact on public debates about climate science. 'It made an immense difference – the level of vitriol and hate we received. Not only do we have waves of attacks when we publish and it ends up on a denialist website, but it has affected politicians.'
