Inhofe Seeks Hearings on Climate Change E-Mails


Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, wrote committee Chair Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif. ) on Tuesday requesting hearings on the recent disclosure of e-mails between some of the world’s most pre-eminent climatologists that reveal apparent attempts to manipulate data, vilify scientists with opposing viewpoints and circumvent information disclosure laws.

“The e-mails reveal possible deceitful manipulation of important data and research used by the U.S. Global Change Research Program and the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change],” Inhofe wrote.  “For instance, one scientist wrote of a ‘trick’ he employed to ‘hide the decline’ in global temperature trends, as well as discussed attempts to ‘redefine what the peer-review literature is’ to prevent papers raising questions about anthropogenic global warming from appearing in IPCC reports.”
