UEA scientist's reputation 'intact'


The Commons' Science and Technology Committee today publishes its report into the disclosure of climate data from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

The committee found no evidence that Professor Phil Jones, whose e-mails were hacked and published online, had manipulated data. It said his reputation, and that of his unit, remained intact. But the committee criticised UEA authorities for not ensuring that Prof Jones was more open with his data.

The e-mails were hacked from the university's computer network and were published on the internet just before the Copenhagen climate conference in December 2009.

Professor Edward Acton, UEA's vice chancellor, and Lord Lawson, chair of the Global Warming Policy Foundation, consider the report's outcomes.
