As you clearly have no evidence for such a claim […]
Well, for what it’s worth, we do have Leake’s quote:
Professor John Christy director of the Earth System Science Centre at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, said the Arctic had indeed warmed, but there was also anecdotal and other evidence suggesting similar melts from 1938-43 and on other occasions.
Some may think this does not suffice to prove that we do have evidence that John Christy intentionally told anything to Leake.
The rest of us may think otherwise.
