The Climategate Hearings

The integrity of climate change research is in doubt after the disclosure of e-mails that attempt to suppress data, a leading scientific institute has said. - Times Online

The Institute of Physics said that e-mails sent by Professor Phil Jones, head of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, had broken “honourable scientific traditions” about disclosing raw data and methods and allowing them to be checked by critics.

Bishop Hill provided a fantastic live commentary of the hearings and will be the place to go today for the fall out.

Thanks for this.

As we North Americans would say: it just doesn't get any better.

And to paraphrase an old army line, Chief Scientician Jones is a self-inflicted wound.
