Amid Climate Data Email Scandal, U. K. Climate Research Director Resigns Pending University Inquiry

“If the current [ice melt] trend continues or gets worse, Antarctica could become the latest contributor to sea level rises in the world. It could start to lose more ice than Greenland in a few years.”

December 2, 2009  Norwich, England -  Phil Jones, Ph.D., Director, Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and professor in the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, used the word “trick” to “hide the decline” in a chart detailing a recent plateau of global temperatures. Dr. Jones's email is among thousands of pieces of correspondence among various scientists about global climate change data. Dr. Jones argues he used the word “trick” to mean “a clever thing to do.” Further embarrassing leaked emails include how to keep scientific work that is critical of a global warming trend out of peer-reviewed journals.
