“Of course, the climate sceptic community would, in the main, give the appearance of welcoming the published data because it supports their view.

Hang on. I don’t think they’re really admitting that the emails support the sceptic view, although admittedly that would be the first obvious interpretation. However, if they really believed that then they’d be bound to investigate the real criminals (i.e. the anti-scientists at CRU) not the whistle blower. Therefore, I suspect it means something else and has just been clumsily worded. Read it again: “[sceptics would] give the appearance of welcoming-the-published-data-because-it-supports-their-view.”

So, it looks to me like they’re meaning to say that the actual “because-it-supports-their-view” reason is meant from the sceptics’ perspective, not the police’s. And as an aside: why couldn’t they simply say that we sceptics, in the main, welcomed the published data, instead of stating that we gave the appearance of welcoming the published data? No one else find that statement quite strange?
