+++Phil Jones CRU Stands Aside+++

Professor Jones said: "What is most important is that CRU continues its world leading research with as little interruption and diversion as possible. After a good deal of consideration I have decided that the best way to achieve this is by stepping aside from the Director's role during the course of the independent review and am grateful to the University for agreeing to this. The Review process will have my full support." 

University of East Anglia - Full Press Release

Fuck the fuck off, you data distorting dickwad.

That is all.

I wouldn't dance about just yet - he's only "standing aside" during the course of the independent review. If that is done by the usual "peers" it will end up being just another whitewash.....

I like the way they hope "that CRU can continue to operate normally" - What continue to cook the books, as they have been doing?

Joe Public said...

No mention of pay (or not) in the Press Release.

So presumably he remains on full pay.

A travesty.

That line is absolutely priceless isn't it, that's the only reason I put that para in!

A classic example of leaving oneself open to even more ridicule, eh ;-)

Yes, yet another example of a Government funded fucker-upperer sitting on his useless arse doing fuck all on full fucking pay, courtesy of the likes of you and I.

Professor Jones is a bit of a cock!

So the attempt at damage limitation begins and the first one bites the dust - or so they'd like us to think!
This will be modelled along the same lines as the Damien McBride resignation ploy, I take it!

"stepping aside from the Director's role during the course of the independent review" well spotted G.O.T.

Not nearly enough Phil Jones, corruptor of the scientific method, despoiler of peer review, fouler of our younglings minds, Climate Change High Priest, you need disembowling on the Altar of Public Opinion.

Before we start the questioning proper Phil, aropos "read_me_harry" file, who the fuck is Harry ?

banned said...

oops " apropos"

For those who don't know, " hide the decline", they are still at it !
See Grumpys link, scroll down to the graphs at the bottom, see how on the last graph the green line ( briffa 2000 ) mysteriously ends about 20 years short ? Using their own data that line continues to plummet so they just tippexed it out.
"Hidden in plain sight" as someone else put it.

What's more important, "Professor" Jones, is that you put the barrel of a loaded pistol in your mouth, flick the safety off, and pull the fucking trigger.

Can't wait for this type of reaction to happen in England

The Police should be in there pulling out evidence as this is public money funding this. Any dodgy evidence could bring forward a fraud case.
But that won't happen - too far down the green road aren't we and think of the unemployment - no, this won't happen.
Move along, nothing to see now go back to sleep.
The Government have got away with dodgy wars, this is nothing..

The only evidence the local plod seem to be looking for is "Who Done It?". And they've called the boys from the Smoke in to help them...

So Phil Jones stepped down as High Priest of the Universtiy of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit pending an investigation. Well, if his GW warming projections don't hold up, at least he knows that his legacy will live on with his groundbreaking New & Improved CRU Scientific Method. I was able to reverse engineered the East Anglia CRU Scientific Methodology from the procedures documented in the purloined e-mails and code. It is clear to me that they have built on the work of maverick chemist Theodore Hapner, who revolutionized thinking about the scientific method in 2006. Godspeed Phil Jones.
