Hard-hitting, balanced story about Phil Jones and ClimateGate

'The scientist at the centre of a row over climate change research has defended himself against claims that he manipulated data.

Professor Phil Jones, former director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (UEA), said his results "stand up to scrutiny".'


And why wouldn't we think he was telling the truth?

Oh yeah, all the emails. Right.

If you want to read a solid, well-balanced story about the role of Professor Phil and the ClimateGate saga... don't bother reading this one. It's all him. Just a list of direct quotes from the guy himself.

That's right, no contrary voices. The voice of criticism that lards every story about America in Iraq, America in Haiti, Israel no matter what it is doing, Honduras when it kicks out a lefty monarch beloved leader and many many other topics is surprisingly quiescent here in this article. Weird. It's like they are protecting one of their own or something.

Ah, the lofty standards of the great BBC institution.
