UK Climategate scientists cleared

From The Guardian:

The climate scientists at the centre of a media storm over leaked emails were yesterday cleared of accusations that they fudged their results and silenced critics, but a review found they had failed to be open enough about their work.

Sir Muir Russell, the senior civil servant who led a six-month inquiry into the affair, said the “rigour and honesty” of the scientists at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) were not in doubt. His investigation concluded they did not subvert the peer review process to censor criticism and that key data was freely available and could be used by any “competent” researcher.

That is a whitewash. Science and the Scientific Method takes another hit. In their emails they talked about hiding the decline! Climategate exposed these people for what they are – political scientists. “Hide the Decline” – for fun – for science. They didn’t mention how they used a computer filter / subroutine to turn any data into a hockey stick graph.
