BoM-gate …

What do we want from BoM’s hacker? I’d like to see a list, but those with more imagination than I could surely turn this hack into a BoMgate. Just before any pseudo-agreement by the Paris-ites.

Chinese hackers? Last time Climategate, remember that, you know, Copenhagen, 2009. That was Russian servers! One up-manship? Here’s my list.

1/ The program BoM use to hucksterize the weather data.

2/ BoM’s policy of FOI, followed by all emails between Ministers and BoM executives, 2005 to 2016.

3/ All BoM’s homogenizing practices.

You never know your luck! There could be a lot more to come.

    Perhaps they were looking at how NOT to predict tomorrow’s weather.
