The global warming scientists who hid data and deleted e-mails were found guilty of breaking the law by the Information Commissioner's Office. The finding shows that they breached the Freedom of Information Act when handling requests for their data and statistical techniques. The statute of limitations is only 6 months for this crime, so the scientists will avoid prosecution.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is also having a bad few weeks. Their latest report is under attack. After having to publicly apologize last week for this, they are again having trouble with the "sources" for their report. This time they used a Popular Mountaineering magazine article and a students dissertation that quoted interviews with mountain guides in the Alps to prove the ice was melting in the mountains.

Yep. Hard science.
