Submission + - House of Commons Inquiry Clears Climate Scientists (npr.org)

dwguenther writes: "The first of several British investigations into the e-mails leaked from one of the world's leading climate research centers has largely vindicated the scientists involved. The House of Commons' Science and Technology Committee said Wednesday that they'd seen no evidence to support charges that the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit ... had tampered with data or perverted the peer review process to exaggerate the threat of global warming."

    The important thing here is not the inevitable I-told-you-so's; the much more critical discussion needs to be about how the media bought into a public-relations scandal, casting false doubt on research results that the public needs to know about in order to make informed decisions.
