The latest news from the Guardian

Better late than never.

.. Blow me the Guardian is researching ClimateGate. It mentions problems with peer-review, the suppression and manipulation of scientific data and articles and discusses problems relating to the infamous 'hockey-stick' graph. Yet, on the 1st of February, Fred Pearce in the Guardian was writing that the:

The 'climategate' scandal is bogus and based on climate sceptics' lies.Claims based on email soundbites are demonstrably false – there is manifestly no evidence of clandestine data manipulation.

Presumably he had a day to read some of the literature and has promptly changed his mind. On 2nd Feb the same Fred Pearce wrote:

A close reading of the hacked emails exposes the real process of science, its jealousies and tribalism.Read more: doubts about "hockey stick" graph revealed.

Well done Fred.

PS The Hockey stick scam was first revealed in 2003 by Steve McIntyre of Climate Audit.
