Climategate – UK Parliamentary Inquiry In To Climatic Research Unit

From the Commons Science and Technology Committee Parliament Web Site.


The Science and Technology Committee today announces an inquiry into the unauthorised publication of data, emails and documents relating to the work of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA). The Committee has agreed to examine and invite written submissions on three questions:

— What are the implications of the disclosures for the integrity of scientific research?
— Are the terms of reference and scope of the Independent Review announced on 3 December 2009 by UEA adequate (see below)?
— How independent are the other two international data sets?

The Committee intends to hold an oral evidence session in March 2010.

For further information please see the press notice dated 22 January 2010.

The Independent Review will:

1. Examine the hacked e-mail exchanges, other relevant e-mail exchanges and any other information held at CRU to determine whether there is any evidence of the manipulation or suppression of data which is at odds with acceptable scientific practice and may therefore call into question any of the research outcomes.

2. Review CRU’s policies and practices for acquiring, assembling, subjecting to peer review and disseminating data and research findings, and their compliance or otherwise with best scientific practice.

3. Review CRU’s compliance or otherwise with the University’s policies and practices regarding requests under the Freedom of Information Act (‘the FOIA’) and the Environmental Information Regulations (‘the EIR’) for the release of data.

4. Review and make recommendations as to the appropriate management, governance and security structures for CRU and the security, integrity and release of the data it holds .

Looks like the science is far from settled, still a deafening silence from Gordon Brown and Ed Milliband still hoping that Climategate will go away.

  1. Excellent news. Let’s pray it’s not a whitewash.
    I want to see prosecutions of Phil Jones (and the others) for at the very least misuse of public funds

  2. Agree with you. It could well finish up as a whitewash.

    However, just the threat of it happening may be enough to put the shits up the UEA investigators, and convince them not to cover up their own internal investigation for fear of the Government investigation finding out that is exactly what they have done and thereby put their beloved research grants in jeopardy.

    Here’s hoping !

  3. Oh dear, I think I spot a whitewash is going to happen in the parliamentary inquiry

  4. perhaps this will wake up the dozy items who now face losing their homes due to the carbon madness

  5. Browning greens

    Look at the picture of Gordon Brown praying to the gods of climate change fraud

  6. The Pachauri thread

    As the man says, all we need is a link between Pachauri and European politicians

  7. Finally a link in German. I will keep digging as I can read both German and French

  8. here also in German (the English quotes on the page are useful as well though), but with today’s date

    this one is older, but already talking about Pachauri corruption

  9. This is scary. Even the British Council is infected with the global warming hoax and fraud


    even without ClimateGate, the FOI Act is _very_ embarassing to the politicians


    >>Yet man still tries to come up with a theory to explain everything and then to use that theory to control his fellow man, always in the presumed wish to save the white race or the working class or someone or something.
    The model we have now in this long and sordid catalogue is about climate.

  12. CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme aka UK “cap and trade”

  13. Now this IS scary. Probably belongs in politics


    here’s the start

    He’s got the whole world trading carbon credits and measuring carbon footprints. He has turned the economic order of the world upside-down. He’s whipped up more apocalyptic hysteria than the Mayan calendar.


    At least it wasn’t an _electrically_ powered train. That would have been even worse for the “evil CO2” emissions


    One US state. Let’s hope others follow

  17. referenced as “Africagate” on eureferendum blog

  18. What is the Met Office up to?

  19. not sure where this belongs, but notice any similarities with a certain Gordon Brown?

  20. make sure this gets circulated (and signed)

  21. not really for “climate” , but you may like this for your “politics” area

  22. Hopefully the first of many returns to sanity

    adopted a resolution condemning “climate alarmists”, and disputing any scientific basis for global warming.

    The measure, which passed by 56-17,

  23. this overlaps “normal” politics and the climate change fraud

  24. When all else fails, blame the oil companies, tobacco companies or _anything_ to divert attention from their _own_ failings

  25. The hidden propaganda. This is bad news. It’s exploiting _children_

  26. it just gets worse. The biofuels _increase_ CO2

    The imbeciles cannot even be consistent in their _own_ “arguments”
