    • Date: 22/07/10

    Alex Reichmuth, Die Weltwoche, 22 July 2010: In November 2009, just days before the big climate summit in Copenhagen, thousands of internal e-mails from leading climate researchers at the University of East Anglia were made public. In the e-mails, the researchers at the university’s Climatic Research Unit discussed how to manipulate data series. They discussed […]

  • That IoP Submission

    • Date: 21/07/10

    Do you remember the Institute of Physics submission to the Parliamentary Inquiry? The institute’s criticisms, being so strongly worded and coming from such an important body, were seen as highly significant. The opening gambits of the paper gives a flavour of the rest: 1. The Institute is concerned that, unless the disclosed e-mails are proved to […]

  • Is The Climate Shifting At The New Scientist?

    • Date: 20/07/10

    With its frank ‘thumbs down’ to ‘whitewash’ inquiry into the Climategate scandal is international science magazine sensing a climate paradigm shift?

  • Phil Jones Approved Climategate Inquiry Papers

    • Date: 19/07/10

    When my FoI request to Imperial led to the disclosure of the Hand and Hoskins emails, there were many redactions of names, which I found rather frustrating.

    • Date: 18/07/10

    Is Climategate finally over? It ought to be, with the publication of the third UK report into the emails leaked from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU). Incredibly, none looked at the quality of the science itself. The MPs’ inquiry – rushed out before the UK general election on 6 May – […]

    The American government has suspended its funding of the University of East Anglia’s climate research unit (CRU), citing the scientific doubts raised by last November’s leak of hundreds of stolen emails.

  • Russell Inquiry: Whatever Happened To FOI2009?

    • Date: 17/07/10

    Ever since I nervously downloaded a file named FOI2009.zip from a rather dodgy sounding Russian server one November night last year, there has been a nagging question troubling me. When the terms of reference for the Russell Inquiry were announce it seemed certain that, whatever shortcomings this so-called independent inquiry might have, an answer to […]

  • A Climate Absolution?

    • Date: 16/07/10

    The latest study purporting to absolve the scientists involved in November’s Climategate scandal was published last week. On predictable cue, the news was followed by a letter from our admirers at the United Nations Foundation and the Natural Resources Defense Council urging us to “set the record straight” on “these bogus scandals.” Having devoted considerable […]
