The scientist at the heart of the ‘Climategate’ scandal got his job back yesterday, despite being criticised by the official inquiry for being secretive and unhelpful.
Professor Phil Jones was suspended as head of the influential Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia last year after leaked emails appeared to show his team manipulated data and blocked Freedom of Information requests.
But he was reinstated after a six-month inquiry cleared him and colleagues of wrongdoing and concluded their ‘rigour and honesty’ was not in doubt.
The university said the £200,000 official review should ‘lay to rest the conspiracy theories, untruths and misunderstandings that have circulated’ since the stolen emails were published online.
But sceptics condemned the report as a whitewash and said it left many questions unanswered.
