CRU’s Jones To Step Down Temporarily

From an outraged Associated Press:

UK climate scientist to temporarily step down

Tuesday, December 1, 2009

LONDON — Britain’s University of East Anglia says the director of its prestigious Climatic Research Unit is stepping down pending an investigation into allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change.

The university says Phil Jones will relinquish his position until the completion of an independent review into allegations that he worked to alter the way in which global temperature data was presented.

The allegations were made after more than a decade of correspondence between leading British and U.S. scientists were posted to the Web following the security breach last month.

The e-mails were seized upon by some skeptics of man-made climate change as proof that scientists are manipulating the data about its extent.

  1. A good start.

    Now if he would find a heavy hanging icicle ready to fall and wait long enough, the rest of what needs to be done might be accomplished.. with prejudice.

    These people have CAUSED a great deal of economic HURT in this country, or frankly the world. “Criminal” is a word that understates the damage.

    Put him in jail – temporarily. No more than 50 years.

  3. specialed says:

    The intentional deletion of emails should be enough to put him away or levy a giant fine. Not sure what the penalty for FOI games is in the UK, but I doubt it would have any teeth.

    What would hurt him more is to have his tenured permanent position yanked…

  4. The Redneck says:

    …allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change….
    …he worked to alter the way in which global temperature data was presented. …

    He destroyed evidence, helped other “scientists” to falsify their findings, and worked to use government funding and power to censor dissentors. This is ‘overstating the case’? ‘Altering the way in which data is presented’?

  5. Liberals Demise says:

    Any chance we can get Al Gorevidal to share a really “warm” cell with the data twisters?

  6. proreason says:

    oh oh for the CRU warmist scumbags. Jon Stewart is riffing on them now.


    This signals the end of the line for this group of charlatans.

    Look for stylish new koolaid to cover-up the castor oil.
