    UK climate scientist to temporarily step down

    UK climate scientist to temporarily step down

    UK climate scientist to temporarily step down
    Dec 1 01:29 PM US/Eastern


    LONDON (AP) - 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.

    Could this eventually be the "game" in "game, set, match."

    And now Penn State is launching an investigation of its own professor.

    This is as it should be. Any scientist that falsifies or truncates data to prove a point is not a true scientist. The fact that the doctored data 'proves' a political objective makes it that much worse. No scientist found doing this should ever be in a scientific post again.

    Agreed, but hey, Van Jones is still in the WH, what makes anyone think that the GW greenies are going to sacrifice their religion over facts?

    I have believed the whole issue of man caused Global Warming and the number of people duped by the HOAX was a testament to the gullibility of some otherwise semi-normal people.

    Now the problem is that once someone buys into such a HOAX they feel it necessary to fight to the end trying to justify their beliefs and actions.

    It is in the best interest for environmental wackos and their Organizations and groups maintain that this is no more than and isolated case and means nothing in to the core issue or they go out of business.

    Environmental groups have never come up with sensible, reasonable, logical plans to deal with real problems that could and or should be addressed.

    Their first tactic has traditionally been to go for the over the top fear tactic.

    Their only option to stay alive is to claim that they too have been duped then regroup coming up with sensible, reasonable, logical plans and ideas that will address the situations.

    This will put off their demise unless there is and effort put forth to drive them into extinction which I favor.

    And yet another day is passing, and CNN and MSNBC completely ignore this story. Day after day. Not even worth mentioning apparently.

    first, let me say that any scientist who has purposely misrepresented data should not be allowed to continue.

    now, let me say that it's patently untrue that environmental groups do nothing. recycling is sensible, greater mpg is sensible, and overall reduction of energy consumption is sensible, reasonable and logical. these were the first approaches taken by those groups.

    let me ask you a question: why would you want to see the demise of groups who could come up with, sensible, logical and reasonable plans?

    I wouldn't, unless they proved their ethics were second to their political biases, and that their findings were forced to fit those leanings.
