Climategate Fallout Hits University Of East Anglia

Phil Jones and UEA ordered to hand over their temperature records

Phil Jones and the University of East Anglia have been ordered by the information commissioner to handover 4000 temperature records collected jointly with the UK Met Office, previously Jones and UEA had been more than obstructive with Freedom of Information requests.

UEA held a whitewash inquiry with a pre-determined outcome, though the inquiry did tell Jones he was a naughty boy for not answering those FoI’s.

The ruling by information commissioner, Christopher Graham is a landmark in the fight to get at truth behind the great Climate Change scam and best of all, this ruling puts Phil Jones back in the frame.

In the US, UEA’s co-conspirator the University of Virgina has been ordered to hand over Michael Mann’s climate change data under an FoI.

Curious the way both universities have strenuously resisted all FoI requests, a cynic would think they had something to hide:

An Oxford academic has won the right to read previously secret data on climate change held by the University of East Anglia (UEA). The decision, by the government’s information commissioner, Christopher Graham, is being hailed as a landmark ruling that will mean that thousands of British researchers are required to share their data with the public.

The ruling also marks a victory for critics of the UEA and its Climatic Research Unit in the “climategate” affair. It comes at the end of a two-year rearguard action by UEA climate scientists to prevent publication of their “crown jewels”, an archive of world temperature records collected jointly with the Met Office.

Jonathan Jones, physics professor at Oxford University and self-confessed “climate change agnostic”, used freedom of information law to demand the data that is the life’s work of the head of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit, Phil Jones. UEA resisted the requests to disclose the data, but this week it was compelled to do so.

Graham gave the UEA one month to deliver the data, which includes more than 4m individual thermometer readings taken from 4,000 weather stations over the past 160 years. The commissioner’s office said this was his first ruling on demands for climate data made in the wake of the climategate affair.

Critics of the UEA’s scientists say an independent analysis of the temperature data may reveal that Phil Jones and his colleagues have misinterpreted the evidence of global warming. They may have failed to allow for local temperature influences, such as the growth of cities close to many of the thermometers.

Growth of cities near thermometers, that’s the least of the data manipulation and fabrication, in many instances in “Climate Science” they just make up the data.

Father of the bastard child Global Warming, James Hansen who when not personally benefiting financially from his role as Warming Alarmist supremo at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is simply making up the data to support his hypothesis that 2010 was the warmest year on record.

With the “Climate data” from both universities in the public domain, Phil Jones and Michael Mann are going to be feeling the heat of their little worlds sudden warming again, just like they did when Climategate snuck up behind and bit them.

  1. amazingly, this continues to dog our finances and keep us all in carbon tax servitude….how much lower do they wish us all to sink before the real truth comes out?

  2. The LA Times featured cold fusion in ’89 before its debunking. Environmentalists were aghast!
    “It’s like giving a machine gun to an idiot child.” – Paul Ehrlich (mentor of John Cook of the SkepticalScience blog, author of “Climate Change Denial”)
    “Clean-burning, non-polluting, hydrogen-using bulldozers still could knock down trees or build housing developments on farmland.” – Paul Ciotti (LA  Times)
    “It gives some people the false hope that there are no limits to growth and no environmental price to be paid by having unlimited sources of energy.” – Jeremy Rifkin (NY Times)
    “Many people assume that cheaper, more abundant energy will mean that mankind is better off, but there is no evidence for that.” – Laura Nader (sister of Ralph)

    CLIMATEGATE 101: “For your eyes only…Don’t leave stuff lying around on ftp sites – you never know who is trawling them. The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone….Tom Wigley has sent me a worried email when he heard about it – thought people could ask him for his model code. He has retired officially from UEA so he can hide behind that.” – Phil “Hide The Decline” Jones to Michael  “Hockey Stick” Mann

  3. well, as the old saying goes….The truth will out. Eventualy.

  4. Governments will run with this as long as they can because it provides a platform for raising taxes. And I see the warmists are turning now towards trying to get us to believe that ‘extreme’ weather conditions are the result of climate change – so, if its hot, cold, windy, wet or dry, it will be the fault of climate change and we will all have to pay even more taxes to prevent it happening. They must think we are all stupid.

  5. One can only surmise that the British government is hell bent on the total destruction of the British ecconomy. When are the members of the Conservative party going to wake up and realise that Cameron is not a Tory and members of his cabinate such as Eric pickles are far to left wing for the party.
