    Biography

    I am the Director of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and a Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. I am principally known for the time series of hemispheric and global surface temperatures, which I update on a monthly basis. I have numerous research papers over the last 25 years. I have been a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society since 1992 and was on the Editorial Committee of the International Journal of Climatology until 1995. I am currently on the editorial board of Climatic Change. I am an elected member of Academia Europaea since 1998.

    I was jointly awarded the Hugh Robert Mill Medal in 1995 by the Royal Meteorological Society for work on UK Rainfall Variability, and in 1997 the Outstanding Scientific Paper Award by the Environmental Research Laboratories / NOAA for being a coauthor on the paper "A search for Human Influences on the Thermal Structure of the Atmosphere," by Ben Santer et al. in Nature, 382, 39-46 (1996). More recently I was awarded the first Hans Oesschger Medal from the European Geophysical Society (now the European Geosciences Union) in 2002 and the International Journal of Climatology prize of the Royal Meteoological Society for papers published in the last five years, also in 2002. I am recognised as one of the top 0.5% of highly-cited researchers in the Geosciences field by the ISI (the institute in the US that maintains the Web of Science, where publications and citations are monitored. I was made (2006) a fellow of the American Meteorological Society and was a awarded a Reviewer's Award by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) the same year. In 2009 I have also been made a fellow by the AGU.

    OK, here it is;

    Climate scientist at center of e-mail controversy to step down

    Climate scientist at center of e-mail controversy to step down

    A scientist who is one of the central figures in the controversy over hacked e-mails from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit announced Tuesday that he is stepping down while the university investigates the incident.

    Climate skeptics have seized on several e-mails from Phil Jones, director of the university's Climatic Research Unit, to other researchers as evidence that prominent scientists have sought to silence their voice in the debate over global warming. The e-mails were pirated and posted online last month.

    "What is most important is that CRU continues its world leading research with as little interruption and diversion as possible," Jones said in a statement. "After a good deal of consideration I have decided that the best way to achieve this is by stepping aside from the Director's role during the course of the independent review and am grateful to the University for agreeing to this. The Review process will have my full support."

    East Anglia's Vice-Chancellor Professor Edward Acton said he had "accepted Professor Jones's offer to stand aside during this period. It is an important step to ensure that CRU can continue to operate normally and the independent review can conduct its work into the allegations."

    Action added the university will disclose details of the probe, including who will head it and how long it will last "within days."

    Marc Morano, who edits the climate skeptic blog, ClimateDepot.com, welcomed the news with an e-mail stating, "One Down: ClimateGate Scientist Phil Jones to temporarily step down... 'pending investigation into allegations that he overstated case for man-made climate change.'"

    Philip Jones made some intemperate comments concerning the peer review that allowed a very flawed paper to be published. He should simply have addressed the prominet errors in the paper, publically, and loudly.

    Still, hardly worth the fight.

    Old Rocks isn't one of the smarter libs here...

    In fact, he's recommending all women over 30 see their Geologist at least once a year...

    When this investigation turns up no wrongdoing and we are left with the information that someone stole his private emails and will be prosicuted for their crime what will these right wingnuts say?

    I'm pretty sure there's nothing unusual about someone stepping down pending an investigation. but more than that, nothing i've seen has led me to the conclusion that climate change is some type of "fraud" like the loons are claiming.

    more excuses to hate science for people who are already anti-science, IMO.

    I wish the right was as concerned about the falsified evidence that took us to war in Iraq.

    Dear Diary,

    I’ve learned so much from the Global Warming Scientists, such as the Scientific Method:

    1. State the Problem

    2. Collect Data

    3. Form a Hypothesis

    4. Experimentation

    5. Conclusion

    6. Edit the Data to Conform to Conclusion

    7. Lose any Data that doesn’t Fit the Conclusion

    8. Prevent Alternative Data From Being Published

    9. Have a Rubber Stamp Made: “Peer Reviewed”

    10. Slander Opponents.

    It’s so good to be with the right thinkers!
