BBC sat on Climategate emails for more than a month

UPDATE. After reading Monbiot’s account of initial CRU reaction to this scandal ("like a rabbit in the headlights, waiting for disaster to strike"), it’s difficult to disagree with Miranda Devine’s call: “Climate alarmists are in a mad fumbling panic.”

UPDATE II. Further to earlier news on release of the emails:

The controversy surrounding the global warming scandal today deepened after a BBC correspondent admitted he was sent the leaked emails more than a month before they were made public.

Paul Hudson, recipient of that email batch, now writes:

Momentum does seem to be growing, from people on both sides of the argument, behind calls for a full independent enquiry that can once and for all get to the bottom of the many issues that have been raised. A recent survey showed that climate scepticism in this country is growing, and this episode may increase it further.

Indeed it might. Hudson’s commenters are enjoying themselves; one of them mentions a bristlecone pine, which is always a positive sign.
