East Anglia University eMails Searchable All In One Page

On 20 November 2009, emails and other documents, apparently originating from with the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia.

The authenticity of these emails has been confirmed by most of the relevant parties including the CRU at Univeristy of East Anglia and many of the authors. These emails contain some quite surprising and even disappointing insights into what has been happening within the climate change scientific establishment. Worryingly this same group of scientists are very influential in terms of economic and social policy formation around the subject of climate change.

As these emails are already in the public domain, I think it is important that people are able to look through them and judge for themselves. Until I am told otherwise I have no reason to think the text found on this site is true or false. We provide this information as a curiosity and hopefully as a basis for better understanding of the motivations and behind-the-scenes discussions of a small but influential group of scientists who have apparently taken their scientific work beyond the realm of scientific inquiry and into the domain of political activism. Ultimately, we hope you will be the judge of that assertion yourself. If you have questions, you may email me at eastangliaemails@gmail.com

Ways to use this search:

  • Enter keywords in the search box (try not to use quotation marks, the system automatically checks the words of your phrase and returns best match first
  • See the menu below, all emails are laid out in pages of 25 or you can click on the filename (if you know what you need) to simply view a single file
  • See what keywords and phrases others have been using recently and just click on those to see what is there

I really just made this because I really couldn’t see me going through the sheer number of text files in any realistic fashion. This will help me find emails that are being discussed on forums and blogs I read.

But this page is now being hit a lot, so I feel it only fair that I tell you what I am hoping to get done – and for you to send me suggestions or ideas (or tips). I’m hoping to get the time tomorrow to also make the various Word and Excel files online and searchable, and also to do what I can with the text from the PDF files (some might be easier than others). I am also hoping to get some improvements done to the overall search box to make the results weighted to number of hits for main keywords / filter out unimportant words (you, me and I) and make the tool more useful. You may email me at eastangliaemails@gmail.com

The entire thing is running off a single mysql database and three main php scripts, the emails are parsed automatically into the database and there is also another file that I made earlier that generated hard copy html files just to get something online.

Hope you enjoy!
