  • David Holland: A Ruling More Significant Than Russell Review

    • Date: 07/07/10

    At the request of the University of East Anglia the Information Commissioner has this morning issued his Decision Notice, FER0238017, on my complaint that UEA did not deal with his 2008 requests for information in accordance with the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs).

  • Stephen McIntyre: Muir Russell – What To Look For

    • Date: 06/07/10

    I don’t expect the Muir Russell report to be as much of an insult to the public as the Penn State report or the Oxburgh report – both of which set the bar pretty low. Or at least, as an insult, it will not be so contemptuous of the public as to contain no documentation and […]

  • Oxburgh And The Jones Admission

    • Date: 02/07/10

    A bombshell from the Oxburgh “inquiry”. Obviously, the most contentious issue in the Hockey Stick controversy has been, uh, the hockey sticks – an area where CRU scientists Jones, Briffa and Osborn have been intimately involved as authors of key proxies, authors of multiproxy studies in the IPCC spaghetti graph, peer reviewers of journal articles […]

    • Date: 30/06/10

    The University of Virginia told a court today that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s request for information about a former university scientist is so sweeping that it bears no relevance to an investigation of whether the scientist violated a Virginia fraud statute Cuccinelli used to issue the demand.
