Climategate Claims Its First Casualty: CRU Pushes Phil Jones Out

by Myron Ebell on December 1, 2009

The Associated Press is reporting  from London that Professor Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia is temporarily stepping down as director of the Climatic Research Unit, which is at the center of the Climategate scandal.

No surprise there.  Jones has been a goner for days. What is surprising is the reason that the AP gives for his “temporary” removal from his directorship:

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 AP story’s lead sentence is even more surprising:
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.
One wonders how long this reporter will last in the mainstream media. He’s clearly not with the MSM program to contain and sanitize this mushrooming scandal.

I WISH EVERYBODY WOULD GO TO GOOGLE AND ENTER (BOB CARTER GLOBAL WARMING) AND WATCH A SHORT VIDEO ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING….I'M NOT AN EXPERT………HE IS………IT APPEARS THE TEMPERATURE IS NOT GOING UP, IT'S REALLY GOING DOWN…AND HAS BEEN FOR 11 YEARS…

A VERY SERIOUS INVESTIGATION NEEDS TO BE DONE TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS (WORLD ECONOMY CHANGING FRAUD) (CLIMATE GATE) AND PROSECUTE THE WRONG DOERS…

I'M SO GLAD THAT AUSTRALIA HAS TAKEN A GOOD LOOK AT THE DOWN SIDE OF CAP AND TRADE AND DECIDED THAT THE EVIDENCE FOR GLOBAL WARMING JUST ISN'T THERE….AND HAD THE GOOD SENSE TO DEFEAT CAP & TRADE..
