Prof Jones Reveals How Climate Science Works

Phil Jones survives MPs' grilling over climate emails | Fred Pearce - guardian.co.uk

Jones's general defence was that anything people didn't like – the strong-arm tactics to silence critics, the cold-shouldering of freedom of information requests, the economy with data sharing – were all "standard practice" among climate scientists. "Maybe it should be, but it's not."
And he seemed to be right. The most startling observation came when he was asked how often scientists reviewing his papers for probity before publication asked to see details of his raw data, methodology and computer codes. "They've never asked," he said.

...Jones' comments about the raw data reveal a lot. "Most scientists don't want to deal with the raw data, they only want the product."

And you call it a science? More like a Glee Club - a musical group, historically of male voices but also of women's or mixed voices, which traditionally specializes in the singing of short songs—glees

CRU East Anglia PR guy on his mobile phone while stuck on the M25, "For God's sake, tell that Jones fool to shut the fuck up! He's killing us every time he opens his trap!"

From what I've read the MPs were pretty hositle to the sceptic viewpoint when they started their session (with Lord Lawson) but by the end (i.e Prof Jones) had turned right round and were openly critical of the methods, attitudes and general chicanery of the warmist camp.

It's all falling apart in front of their eyes...what are the AGW scammers and troughers going to do now?

I agree with JohnRS. Andrew Orlowski in the Register doesn't exactly say that he "survived" but that he got a pasting at the hands of Graham Stringer:-
