UEA: the sweet smell of napalm in the morning…

I wasn’t going to crow, really I wasn’t. But I’m afraid I can’t resist, especially since it’s my last blog post for a while and this is an event of some significance. I’m talking about the Press Complaints Commission’s ruling on a complaint brought against this blog by our old friends at the University of East Anglia. They lost. We won. (And I do mean we: I’m hugely grateful to my legal advisers, as well as to experts including Steve McIntyre, Andrew Montford, Richard North and Christopher Booker.)

Because I’m about to dash off to Devon for some vital surfing R & R, I’ve only time to sketch in why this matters so much. Basically the UEA were trying to use the PCC as a way of gagging this blog from speaking unpalatable truths about the shoddy goings-on in its notorious Climatic Research Unit.

  1. Excellent news. Sighs of relief all round I think. People like me, supporters on the periphery, don’t always remember the professional risks you run when you take on institutions with deep pockets and tell it as it is. Thank you.

  2. Indeed climate gate reflected poorly on those involved. But they’re not the only scientists in the world. I don’t see that the whole AGW agenda is sunk by a few idiots. Damaged, yes, but no more.

    After all, your pal Ian Plimer has been pretty soundly discredited by failing to answer any of his critics. You promised us his book was going to change everything. Do you still stand by your original review of it?
