Climategate: The First Head Rolls

So much for "settled science."

UK climate scientist to temporarily step down
AP

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.

Start (over) from scratch (raw data) as regards AGW, and make every step of the process public and thoroughly reviewed before trying to alter the global economy...

I wonder if one of his buddies will be doing the invistigation. IMO they will do it right but it could be just a foolish hope of academia professionalism on my part. We will see, I hope.

Britain's University of East Anglia says the director of its prestigious Climatic Research Unit is stepping down in order to spend more quality time with his family.

They'll try to whitewash, as will PennState with Piltdown Mann, and GISS with Hansen. Get onto Senator Inhofe to get his investigation rolling

I would not hold my breath waiting for a complete reevaluation of the issue on the part of those who have committed this fraud. The Warmists are all in with their AGW theory and they won't let anything no matter how damning to get in the way. In fact, I expect them to double down and get even more frantic because they know full well it will be hard to contain the truth much longer and the truth is an obstacle in getting their way at Copenhagen.

No doubt they will try to ignore climategate just as they try to ignore the current cooling trend. Problem with that strategy is that the public and likely the US Senate is unwilling to pass economy damaging legislation or approve treaties based on opaque and now tainted science. Even if the science is sound as they claim, they are going to have to submit to a full and transparent review such that all the data and metadata are made public. The louder they scream their warnings of irreversible climate calamity the loader they will get the response that they need to get started on a transparent review. That's the first step before any legislation is passed.
