Climategate e-mails inquiry under way


An investigation has begun into leaked e-mails that climate sceptics say reveal an attempt by researchers to manipulate data.

A panel of experts, headed by Sir Muir Russell, will investigate how e-mails from the UK's Climatic Research Unit (CRU) appeared on the web.

They will also consider if the e-mail exchanges between researchers show an attempt to manipulate or suppress data "at odds" with scientific practice.

David Shukman reports.
