You'd have thought we'd have heard more about this especially after all the ruckus they kicked up over the abnormally large piles of snow this winter.
I guess they'll be issuing retractions for all their on air personalities remarks about it at anytime....

UK 'Climategate' inquiry largely clears scientists

AP

LONDON

The first of several British investigations into the e-mails leaked from one of the world's leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved.

The first of several British investigations into the e-mails leaked from one of the world's leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved.

two of the most serious criticisms levied against the climatologist and his colleagues.

In their report, the committee said that, as far as it was able to ascertain, "the scientific reputation of Professor Jones and CRU remains intact," adding that nothing in the more than 1,000 stolen e-mails, or the controversy kicked up by their publication, challenged scientific consensus that "global warming is happening and that it is induced by human activity."

The 14-member committee's investigation is one of three launched after the dissemination, in November, of e-mails and data stolen from the research unit. The e-mails appeared to show scientists berating skeptics in sometimes intensely personal attacks, discussing ways to shield their data from public records laws, and discussing ways to keep skeptics' research out of peer-reviewed journals. One that attracted particular media attention was Jones' reference to a "trick" that could be used to "hide the decline" of temperatures.

or even made up altogether.

The lawmakers said they decided to investigate due to "the serious implications for U.K. science."

Phil Willis, the committee's chairman, said of the e-mails that "there's no denying that some of them were pretty appalling." But the committee found no evidence of anything beyond "a blunt refusal to share data," adding that the idea that Jones was part of a conspiracy to hide evidence that weakened the case for global warming was clearly wrong.

and other research institutions — to stop hoarding their data.

"The winner in the end will be climate science itself," he said.

The winner on Wednesday was Jones, who stepped down temporarily as chief of the climate research unit about week after the e-mail scandal broke. The committee expressed sympathy with Jones, whom Willis said had been made a scapegoat for larger problems within the climate science community.

"The focus on Professor Jones and the CRU has been largely misplaced," the report said.

But the lawmakers did criticize the way Jones and his colleagues handled freedom of information requests, saying scientists could have saved themselves a lot of trouble by aggressively publishing all their data instead of worrying about how to stonewall their critics.

which was written after only a single day of oral testimony — did not cover all the issues and would not be as in-depth as the two other inquiries into the e-mail scandal that are still spending.

Willis said the lawmakers had been in a rush to publish something before Britain's next national election, which is widely expected in just over a month's time.

"Clearly we would have liked to spend more time of this," he said, before adding jokingly: "We had to get something out before we were sent packing."

One of the two pending inquiries is being headed by former civil servant Muir Russell, who is looking into whether scientists, including Jones, fudged data or manipulated the peer review process. It also is examining the extent to which university followed applicable freedom of information laws. That report is due to report sometime this spring.

Geologist Ernest Oxburgh is leading a parallel investigation into the integrity of the science itself, one staffed by academics including Kerry Emanuel, a professor of meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Huw Davies, a former president of the International Association of Meteorology & Atmospheric Science.

for example by publishing all their data, including raw data and the software programs used to interpret them, to the Internet. Willis said there was far too much money at stake not to be completely transparent.

"Governments across the world are spending trillions of pounds, or trillions of dollars, on mitigating climate change. The science has got to be irreproachable," he said.

fwiw..

"largely clears"....Itself a bit opaque, no?....Too much evidence the contrary, too much money at stake...If someone ran the numbers, the number of BTUs discharged by the human race is laughably small in comparison to solar heating...CO2 has already been debunked as a major greenhouse gas....It's all about the dough, Moe, and the schmoe willing to go along with the scam....

I have to say that at least Fox News DID cover this story, compared to the "Main Stream" media who cover or even make up their own stories, then when it finally comes out that the whole story was a fabrication (usually on Fox News) NEVER report the CORRECT story...

Main stream media is SO corrupt these days, with their noses so far up Obama's hind end, they can't tell the fart from the fecal....

At least Fox is making sure BOTH sides, or should I say all sides, are getting hammered to do the right thing.

A discussion today was about the RNC chairman being held ot a higher standard because he's Black, According to the talking head discussing it, that was nothing but pure Nonsense. He was being judged on his ACTIONS, sorry as they may be, NOT on his skin color...

I see the commentators on Fox at least have the integrity to stick to their beliefs, NOT the latest political wind blowing around and being intellectually dishonest with themselves AND their viewers. That's why Fox has more viewers than all the others COMBINED!!

IMO the best things on Fox are the Simpsons and Family Guy. I will say Bill O'Reilly isn't bad. He's the ONLY one I would consider "fair and balanced". If a person really wants some good news, you can't beat the BBC.

Just a comment on news reporters. I was ice fishing and reporters came onto the lake to do a story on pollution left by fishermen. They went over to a 55 gal drum that was used for trash and dumped it on the ice. Took their video and left, never cleaning it up. Scum.

Trash story sems a bit like the photos of the temperature sensor station next to an incinerator...staged photos are no photos at all, simply used to support a conclusion already reached...Between the news outlets and the "government"...We are in deep doo-doo...

There are so many vested interests at play these days.
Who the hell do you believe,our election is now set to be May 6th,Sky news is already showing the conservatives with a 10 point lead,owned by news international who have already said that they are backing the conservatives,it is all about mind bending and brainwashing as usual.Most people here are fed up with politicians like you across the pond and i think any vote will for the most part a protest vote against our system.The most powerful press will no doubt have the election won a long time before it takes place.There are so many fingers in the climate change pie i will be suprised if people believe anything from now on.I sometimes wish people would wake up and make up their own minds,forget the spin.

@Monkey

How about if I removed all the references to Faux News and posted it as an email forward with "The Elite MSM doesn't want you to see this." and "Forward this to as many people as you can."

Would you find it more "interesting" then?
