It now looks certain that Phil Jones, Director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, will resign his post.
However, his departure could damage the pursuit of climate truth.
Jones will probably have to resign after leaked emails revealed his unethical and possibly illegal deletion of publicly funded scientific research. He did this to avoid findings and data that contradicted his climate alarmism from being released through the Freedom of Information Act.
If Jones does resign it will be for this breach of the law.
But that is not the true scandal. The truly awful behavior by Jones is that he changed and deleted scientific records. He has removed data from the view of his colleagues, scientists across the world and across the generations.
Who knows what scientific inventions or discoveries will now not happen because Jones deleted research and data?
Has he no shame?
UPDATE: On Dec. 1st Phil Jones announced his resignation from CRU "pending an investigation into allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change."
