Phil Jones Steps DownPosted: December 27, 2016
PHIL JONES, arguably one of the godfathers of global warming alarmism and post-normal science should have ‘stepped down’ a long time ago. A disgrace to “the science” …
“Kevin and I will keep [skeptic papers] out [of IPCC] somehow – even if we have to redefine what peer-review literature is” – Phil Jones | Climategate Emails
“I’ve obviously written some awful emails, and I fully admit that..” – Phil Jones comment to the UK Parliamentary Enquiry into Climategate 2009.

Climatologist Prof Phil Jones, who was at the centre of the Climategate row over hacked emails, will be succeeded by Prof Timothy Osborn.
Prof Osborn, who has worked at the UEA since 1990, said: “UEA provides a superb environment for climate research and so it is a privilege for me to become the Climatic Research Unit’s next director of research.
“I’m looking forward to leading our pioneering climate research, establishing with greater certainty the details of how and why the Earth’s climate is changing and the consequences for the future.”
No doubt Phil’s well earned retirement will give ample opportunity to
adjust homogenise his golf scores!
