CRU Political Hack and Hoaxster Steps Down
FROM UK climate scientist to temporarily step down:
Britain's University of East Anglia says the director of its prestigious Climatic Research Unit is stepping down pending an investigation into allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change.
The university says Phil Jones will relinquish his position until the completion of an independent review into allegations that he worked to alter the way in which global temperature data was presented.
The MSM non-story , Climategate, that is the clear intent by the British Climate Reasearch Unit of East Anglia University to manipulate climate data to show warming in spite of a decline from 1998 ("hide the decline" http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Phil Jones, head of CRU must step down while the demonstrative emails are examined and the data analyzed. It seems that the feeble explanation given by warmists that the emails represent a special language only understood by climate scientists went over the heads of University officials that use English as their mother tongue.

We here at DBKP expect a vocal and frankly irrational defense by warmists, who are shocked that they are subject to review. After all, nobody in their opinion is a peer to a true believer in Anthropogenic Global Warming.
Nevertheless, with New Zealand's climate unit also caught altering historical data and Michael Mann of the University of Pennsylvania up to his neck in the CRU scandal, the populace may come to understand that these scientists do indeed have peers: Confidence Men.
