Phil Jones Thought of Suicide: Climategate

Interesting that he did not think of suicide when he was engaging in unethical behaviors like manipulating data to support global warming theory, colluding with other alarmist scientists to block journal submissions from skeptical scientists, ignoring FOIA requests, and destroying baseline data (used in the aforementioned manipulations).

THE scientist at the centre of the “climategate” email scandal has revealed that he was so traumatised by the global backlash against him that he contemplated suicide.

Professor Phil Jones said in an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times that he had thought about killing himself “several times”. He acknowledged similarities to Dr David Kelly, the scientist who committed suicide after being exposed as the source for a BBC report that alleged the government had “sexed up” evidence to justify the invasion of Iraq.
