The House of Commons Science and Technology Board has stated today that they have seen no evidence to support charges that the University of East Anglia or Phil Jones destroyed data or subverted the peer review process. House of Commons exonerates Phil Jones Climate Progress House of Commons exonerates Phil Jones Based on their inquiry and evidence, "the scientific reputation of Professor Jones and CRU remains intact. We have found no reason ... to challenge the scientific consensus ... that 'global warming is happening [and] that it is induced by human activity'." March 30, 2010 We believe that the focus on CRU and Professor Phil Jones, Director of CRU, in particular, has largely been misplaced . In the context of the sharing of data and methodologies, we consider that Professor Joness actions were in line with common practice in the climate science community . Likewise the evidence that we have seen does not suggest that Professor Jones was trying to subvert the peer review process. Academics should not be criticised for making informal comments on academic papers.
