“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.

The allegations were made after more than a decade of correspondence between leading British and U.S. scientists were posted to the Web following the security breach last month.

The e-mails were seized upon by some skeptics of man-made climate change as proof that scientists are manipulating the data about its extent.” “UK climate scientist to temporarily step down” h/t Jeff Id. UEA press release.

    Penn State take notice.If they think a whitewash will be enough to cover their crimes, think it over.We have a world of evidence, thousands of written records ranging from Saudi Arabia to Mandarin China calling your boy Mike Mann a liar.
