Disbelief as chief of 'independent' inquiry into the scandal of lost or destroyed global warming data admits he "didn't investigate the science."
The 'Climate Audit
' website publishes a startling written admission from Lord Oxburgh, head of the British investigation into the Climategate scandal that his official inquiry did not check any of the science.
Independent climate data analyst Steve McIntyre, owner of the popular blog, disclosed the extraordinary revelations on July 1, 2010. The Climategate email leak occurred on November 19, 2010. McIntyre's Freedom of Information (FOIA) requests are widely acknowledged to have precipitated the unlawful refusal by University of East Anglia scientists to disclose key climate data. It is believed Professor Phil Jones of the university’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) withheld such data over a three-year period.
The UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) handling the FOIA breach concluded Jones could not be prosecuted as the complaint against him was made just outside the six-month statute of limitations, as reported in the Norwich Evening News
(January 28, 2010)
Similar such climate data fraud investigations
are currently ongoing in the United States.
