Say, About All Those Death Threats Against Aussie Climate Scientists…

Yeah, not so much, via Australian Climate Madness through Anthony Watts

(The Australian) CLAIMS that some of Australia’s leading climate change scientists were subjected to death threats as part of a vicious and unrelenting email campaign have been debunked by the Privacy Commissioner.

Timothy Pilgrim was called in to adjudicate on a Freedom of Information application in relation to Fairfax and ABC reports last June alleging that Australian National University climate change researchers were facing the ongoing campaign and had been moved to “more secure buildings” following explicit threats.

In a six-page ruling made last week, Mr Pilgrim found that 10 of 11 documents, all emails, “do not contain threats to kill” and the other “could be regarded as intimidating and at its highest perhaps alluding to a threat”.

Both Watts and ACM highlight all the ‘breathless” reporting of the original story claiming the death threats. Think the reality will hit the BBC, Nature, ABC (Aussie version), and the Guardian, among others, with them publishing this info?

    Wait. What are you trying to suggest? Allude? Intimate?

    Not that those on the Socialist Left who will do anything to push their anti-freedom ideology would…. lie?

  2. Nope, that would never happen.
