Scientists Lie about Climate Change Data

Unknown, --

Scientist at the heart of the 'Climategate' email scandal broke the law when they refused to give raw data to the public. The University of East Anglia researchers breached the Freedom of Information Act when handling requests from climate change skeptics.
These scientists will escape prosecution because the offences took place more than six months ago. The Climategate row broke in November when hundreds of stolen emails from the world-renowned Climate Research Unit in Norwich were posted online. The emails appeared to show researchers discussing how to manipulate historical temperature data and dodge requests under the Freedom of Information Act. The IPCC was forced to apologise after wrongly claiming the Himalayan glaciers could vanish within 25 years. Critics have also accused it of exaggerating the risk of tropical storms and hurricanes.
