Climategate: The CRUtape Letters

The first book on Climategate to be published is now out by Stephen Mosher and Thomas W. Fuller: Climategate: The CRUtape Letters (a clever, and fitting title in many ways). Here's Anthony Watts at Watt's Up With That, the best blog covering the coverup:

Climategate, written by Steve Mosher and Tom Fuller, is an account of the events leading up to the leaking of over 1,000 emails and assorted files that exposes the unethical and perhaps illegal practices used by the Hockey Stick Team to protect their turf as well as their information. These rock star scientists dined with the elite and feasted on government grants, but it was all predicated on ‘hiding the decline:’ Making sure no-one saw how shaky their data, analysis and conclusions actually were. Hide the decline didn’t refer to temperatures–it was worse. It was a decline in the quality of their data they were trying to hide. This book puts it all into context–and in context it is worse."
