Let’s ask for it again
Today I wrote to John Morgan, CEO of NIWA, along this wise:
Regarding your reply of 21 November, 2013, I believe you have not answered my question, but instead of appealing immediately to the Ombudsman it seems fair to ask you once more.
Mr Justice Venning expressed satisfaction that NIWA had testified to the existence of international scientific approval of its methodology, but he himself expressed no approval of that methodology. Yet, in its submissions to the Court, NIWA failed to provide a reference to or copy of such scientific approval. My readers and I are keen to see it.
So would you please provide a copy of the scientific literature that approves of the measurement technique used by NIWA in the Review. This request is reiterated under the Official Information Act.

We recently exchanged correspondence in which Mr Morgan treated our request with, it must be said, more than a little disdain.
I sincerely hope that this time he handles the matter more faithfully.
