The Department of Energy (DoE) has suspended funding for the East Anglia University's climate research unit (CRU) pending a scientific peer review of the university's work. The DoE has been funding the CRU with $200,272 annually since 1990, and may or may not resume the funding after the peer review report.
The latest peer review, which included a member of the CRU staff as a panelist, found that there was no fault in the data. Many are already accusing the panel of whitewashing climategate. The DoE has said it'll want to hear about the new efforts for "open" scientific inquiry, likely in reference to Phil Jones asking scientists to delete data.
It'll be interesting to see if the DoE will be firm about this policy, or if it's just a public relations gesture. You can let the DoE know how you felt about the CRU's "peer reviewed" report by e-mailing them at The.Secretary@hq.doe.gov.
