Climategate: Phil Jones dimite temporalmente!!!! (Act.)

escrito por Luis I. Gómez 2 diciembre, 2009

Actualización: POR FIN!!! Los medios españoles se hacen eco de la dimisión de Jones,

La bola de nieve ya rueda cuesta abajo. Crecerá y nadie podrá pararla.

Ultima hora! Phil Jones presenta su dimisión temporal (ya intentaremos enterarnos de qué significa eso realmente) en el CRU.

Nota de prensa del CRU:

Professor Phil Jones has today announced that he will stand aside as Director of the Climatic Research Unit until the completion of an independent Review resulting from allegations following the hacking and publication of emails from the Unit.

PhilJones_sProfessor Jones said: “What is most important is that CRU continues its world leading research with as little interruption and diversion as possible.  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.”

Vice-Chancellor Professor Edward Acton said: “I have 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.

“We will announce details of the Independent Review, including its terms of reference, timescale and the chair, within days. I am delighted that Professor Peter Liss, FRS, CBE, will become acting director.”

La cuestión es, volverá tras la revisión? Seguiremos informando.

En otro orden de cosas: el senado australiano vota en contra de la nueva Ley de Comercio de Emisiones de CO2. una magnífica noticia! Sin duda el Climategate ha tenido que ver ello. Varios políticos progresistas se pasaron al bando del “no” tras los acontecimientos de la semana pasada.
