Fred Pearce, Journalist

Wondering how the BBC-shills compared with reputable journalists, I made a collection of the Climategate 2.0 references to Fred Pearce. (See below) What one sees is that Pearce, although of a generally warmist inclination, is looking for a story, and looking for corroboration for the facts that he picks up. In short he is shown to be a journalist, not an activist. (In stark contrast to Roger Harrabin, for example). Here are the links:

1736.txt
2576.txt
4664.txt
5047.txt
3991.txt
2630.txt

This message, 3991.txt, is odd as Mike Hulme has apparently been complaining to Pearce about data not being released by other scientists, and Pearce is asking for additional information. As usual, Pearce is behaving like a typical journalist looking for a story. Hulme on the other hand is probably just seeding some rumours.

...It is unclear whether Hulme decided to submit and FOI to obtain the data he wanted from whichever group he was bad mouthing. I suppose badmouthing them was better than harassing them, right?
