Does anyone know if the ACS has come out with an official statement concerning the "Climate-gate"-East Anglia debacle? As the world's largest professional society, I think the ACS should come out with and offiicial statement (see Financial Time of London link: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/8aefbf52-d9e1-11de-b2d5-00144feabdc0.html). The UN is traying to explan this away as if it is nothing(http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/nov/29/ipcc-climate-change-leaked-ema ils).
The ACS should come out and challenge this fraud for what it is. However, right now, the ACS official position is aligned with the UN position. Internal efforts to get a dissenting opinion heard have started, but I'm not sure they have done much good yet. For the integrity of science, we should speak up now.
