Is anyone surprised by this? I predicted this long ago. The reputations of the university, scientists, and politicians involved are all on the line, should the information--the proof--that this manmade global warming is nothing but trumped up nonsense (because it is) becomes common knowledge. Millions in climate research grants are on the line, and the universities directly benefit from those grants.
Two more panels to go, but they'll reach the same conclusion, even though the humiliated Phil Jones of the CRU has more or less admitted that global warming hasn't happened in 15 years and that there were global warm periods that preceded the industrial age.
And this all preceded similar scandals with the U.N.'s IPCC, where Dr. Pachuri admitted fault and political hyperbole in its Nobel-winning report, the pseudo-science of which was directly fed by Jones' CRU at East Anglia. This is A SCAM. Nothing else. And Obama continues on...
The scientific research into historical temperature records was misrepresented by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which failed to consider uncertainties the scientists had reported concerning the raw temperature data.
The inquiry panel of leading scientists, nominated by the Royal Society, said that the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit may not have used the best methods for analyzing temperature records. The Unit also failed to store its data and keep full records of exactly what it had done, preventing other scientists from checking all its findings.
