Climategate: The Crutaper Letters, written by Steven Mosher and Tom Fuller has just been released:

The Climategate scandal covered from beginning to end–from ‘Hide the Decline’ to the current day. Written by two authors who were on the scene–Steven Mosher and Tom Fuller–Climategate takes you behind that scene and shows what happened and why.

For those who have heard that the emails were taken out of context–we provide that context and show it is worse when context is provided.

For those who have heard that this is a tempest in a teacup–we show why it will swamp the conventional wisdom on climate change.

And for those who have heard that this scandal is just ‘boys being boys’–well, boy. It’s as seamy as what happened on Wall Street.

Mosher, widely known, as a “lukewarmer” is perhaps the one man outside of the Motley CRU, The Hockey Team, and the whistle blower/hacker to receive the file, and recognize the game-changing importance of what he was reading.  Mosher’s story was told in vivid detail a couple of days ago by Steve McIntyre.

Tom Fuller is a writer and self-described “liberal skeptic”, and was perhaps the first journalist to cover the Climategate story in detail as it was breaking.

So, one is a liberal  and the other is a “lukewarmer”, so it’s hard to dismiss them out-of-hand as right-wing ideologues.  Undoubtedly, Joe Romm and others will smear them anyway – it’s what the alarmists do when they’re desperate.

Hat tip: Many thanks to Steven Mosher for the heads up.

    Who is Steven Mosher?

    Climategate Role

    Mr. Mosher is frequently given far too much importance relating to Climategate breaking in November of 2009 when actually he was akin to a courier, being one of the first people who was given the hacked emails by the WUWT moderator who found them, Charles Rotter, and only because they happened to be roommates at the time. The anonymous hacker had posted an FTP link to multiple sites such as Warren Myer’s Climate Skeptic, Patrick “Jeff” Condon’s The Air Vent and of course to Anthony Watt’s Watts Up With That?, none of which were to Mr. Mosher’s blog which had been up since June 2009. Despite delusions of grandeur [“Steven Mosher is to Climategate what Woodward and Bernstein were to Watergate”] and ridiculous assertions [“He was just the right person, with just the right influence, and just the right expertise to be at the heart of the promulgation of the files”] Mr. Mosher was nothing more than a temporary go-between that he used to inflate his importance in the matter. He was never directly contacted or targeted by the anonymous hacker as a source to leak the emails since he was not prominent in the climate skeptic community and it required no special “expertise” to read emails, nor special “influence” to contact people like Steve McIntyre. In the end it was Anthony Watts and Charles Rotter who “broke” the story at WUWT where the anonymous hacker had originally intended. This did not stop Mr. Mosher from making ridiculous claims to have “alerted the internet” to the Climategate emails.
