LONDON 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.

And just how the hell are we going to trust the ‘independent review’ of these ‘unbiased, objective SCIENTISTS?’

The Corrupthagen bunch are STILL using his and Mike Mann’s data in the report to be presented by the FRAUDS.

Exactly! This “independent review” will say Global Warming is even worse than predicted and the solution is to raise taxes. All “deniers” subject to criminal investigation.

Although I am certain our gubment and the MSM will double-down with their global-whining and fake but accurate reporting, I’m betting that countries like China and India will help to expose this fiction as they have no intention on playing the game.

See what happens when public debate is silenced and there is a blacklisting and a smear campaign against those “traitors” who are “global climate change deniers!”?

There is global climate change. Every day. Every year. Every century. The planet rotates, tilts, and orbits a giant thermonuclear fireball in the sky.

Some examples of significant periodic global climate change that are NOT man-made are known as “night”, “day”, “winter”, “spring”, “summer”, and “fall”. Some longer trends have been called “an ice age”.

It is quack science to insist that Western civilization is killing the planet and that we require a socialist redistribution of trillions of dollars from the West to the Third World.

Most dangerous political-scientific theory since eugenics theory led to scientific support for the Holocaust in Germany and forced sterilization in America in the 1930s.

Will the “independent review” involve anyone who is in his email contacts or has any connection with any socialist organization or George Soros? If the answer is yes, then his work may as well be reviewed by spotted al gore.

Who's going to head the "review?"

The devil's in the details.

I've got my fingers crossed nonetheless.

A key player resigns, however, the fraud will go on at Fraudenhagen.

The "independent review" contemplated by the brits is sham, but once the need for an investigation has been broached, it then becomes more newsworthy. It raises the profile of the fraud and exposes more opportunities for attack.

It is bracing to see the fraudulent Jones step down.

If you don't accede that he is completely innocent up front, you will be judged "unqualified" to participate in the independent review.
