CRU Boss Stands Aside, Queens University Blocking Data FOI

CRU boss Phil Jones is standing down while the university investigation reviews the Climategate emails.  He should be a scientific pariah for this one email alone “I can’t see either … being in the next [IPCC] report. Kevin [Trenberth] and I will keep them out somehow – even if we have to redefine what the peer-review literature is!” Science is all about conjectures and refutations, if climate scientists try to close down debate* it undermines public confidence.  The public might not understand the calculus of thermodynamics, but it understands snake oil salesmanship when it sees it…

Phil Jones CRU Climate Cooling Denier

The CRU is a taxpayer funded body which is now exposed as not fit for purpose, compromised by global warming advocates rather than staffed by truth pursuing scientists. It has funding largely from the British taxpayer and the EU. Until there is a clear out of the compromised personnel, not just CRU boss Phil Jones, funding should be halted. Taxpayers should be confident that their money is being used for scientific research, not to fund a cabal of global cooling deniers intent on creating a scientifically unfounded basis for a political project.

There is similar issue developing at Queens University Belfast (QUB), where once again global warming alarmist scientists are blocking Freedom of Information requests.  QUB is one of the world’s leading centers for tree-ring work, the tree-ring data that QUB has gathered is valuable for studying the global climate during the past 7000 years. For 2 years mathematician Douglas J. Keenan has been battling to get them to release the data unsuccessfully.  QUB is throwing up chaff to prevent him having access to the data.  Why do they feel so threatened by external review of their data?

*Guido is looking forward to tomorrow’s George Monbiot v James Delingpole debate* being organised by Index on Censorship : “Saying the unsayable: is climate scepticism the new Holocaust denial?” Thursday, 3 December, 6.30 – 8pm, Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road.  RSVP to: bookings@freewordonline.com, more details here.

P.J. O’Rourke tells the Daily Politics:

“You really do love your NHS. But what I don’t understand is if it’s so good why are you always trying to fix it?”
