Climategate : Don’t Jump, Phil Jones

George Monbiot has called for the head of the Climatic Research Unit on a plate, but I don’t think Phil Jones should jump, myself :-

“Global warming rigged? Here’s the email I’d need to see : The leaked exchanges are disturbing, but it would take a conspiracy of a very different order to justify sceptics’ claims : George Monbiot, guardian.co.uk, Monday 23 November 2009 : It’s no use pretending this isn’t a major blow. The emails extracted by a hacker from the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia could scarcely be more damaging. I am now convinced that they are genuine, and I’m dismayed and deeply shaken by them. Yes, the messages were obtained illegally. Yes, all of us say things in emails that would be excruciating if made public. Yes, some of the comments have been taken out of context. But there are some messages that require no spin to make them look bad. There appears to be evidence here of attempts to prevent scientific data from being released, and even to destroy material that was subject to a freedom of information request. Worse still, some of the emails suggest efforts to prevent the publication of work by climate sceptics, or to keep it out of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. I believe that the head of the unit, Phil Jones, should now resign. Some of the data discussed in the emails should be re-analysed…”

Phil Jones shouldn’t be pushed, either, in my view.

Phil Jones should be tasked with clearing up this mess, starting with rooting out and disciplining whoever made these e-mails public.

Stay in post, Phil, and get the job done !

Jo,

Still you do not admit that your climate change activism is misplaced, even the Guardian is now accusing Phil Jones and co of misleading, lying and scaring the public.

You complain that the e-mails have been made public, and that the culprit should be disciplined???, why?.

For too long we have been told the science is settled and that people like Jones have the evidence, well it looks like the science is not settled and that the deniers are actually the pro-climate change activists.

Now the information is out in the open (codes and all), the selective statistics that you and your ilk have used to claim that we are in the middle of an enviromental doomsday will now be treated with the contempt they deserve.

I agree completely, Jo. Moreover, I have to think that George M. is just “baiting” with this post… or else he’s suffered a severe blow to his cranium! In other words, the email GM “reprinted” is absurd in the extreme! I found the entire “email” quite amusing and had a real guffaw when I read…

“The ring of secret nuclear power stations around the Arctic circle, attached to giant immersion heaters, remains undetected, as do the space-based lasers dissolving the world’s glaciers.”

Anyone simple enough to give that line any credence probably died at birth and just hasn’t realized it yet!! 😀

Colin W, George M post after expressing his anger with Phil Jones was a spoof, anyone simple enough to give his post any credence really died at birth and has not realized it yet !!!.

The fact that George M who has based his reputation on the b********* spouted by Jones and Mann has put into print his anger should show Jo Abbess and co that they are now the majority.

Oops, I meant to say the MINORITY !, unlike Phil Jones I know when I should correct my e-mails !!.
