App DescriptionIf you have ever wondered how real scientists perform their day to day work, or how your tax money is spent on Climate research, then Climategate is the App for you.
Climategate is a free, searchable, iPhone based repository of the emails at the heart of the CRU Climategate controversy.
This free Climategate App is specifically designed for you to use in situations of poor Internet coverage, such as during your daily commute. The many excellent online Climategate repositories suffer the shortcoming that they are web based. The Climategate App addresses this shortcoming, by storing all required resources locally, on your iPhone.
The scientists who wrote the emails have been officially cleared of wrongdoing, by several inquiries in both the USA and Great Britain, so the emails, and some of the fascinating quotes contained therein, should not be interpreted as evidence of wrongdoing. For more information about the official reviews and their findings, please visit:
Nevertheless, the emails contained in the Climategate App are an intriguing and rare insight into the professional lives of real scientists, and are valuable from the perspective of furthering our understanding of how Climate Scientists perform their daily work, and how our tax money is spent in the pursuit of greater knowledge.
My thanks to John Costella, an Australian based scientist, who kindly provided me with permission to reproduce his list of some of the more thought provoking quotes from the Climategate emails. For more information about John Costella and his research on this topic. please visit his site at:
CAVEAT - This Climategate App was tested on an iPhone 3GS. On the 3GS, the search experience seemed acceptable, but it may seem a little slow on older iPhones. Searching such a large body of text is a challenge to any computing environment. I have used background search technology to keep the phone as responsive as possible during searches, and to allow you to enter or change search text at all times, even during the middle of a search, but sometimes completing a search may take a second or two longer than you expect.
If you experience any problems with the search facility, or any other issues, if you have any questions, or would like to send me suggestions for new links, please contact me at email@example.com
