The Hacker: With this new control I may not be as sloppy but now I'm slappy

I am ashamed to confess that my crusade to break 100 in a medal this year failed at the very first challenge. I must, however, claim extenuating circumstances because the March medal left a trail of devastation among much better players than me.

Leading article: Climate change fightback, part 1

Professor Phil Jones, head of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, has been vilified for allegedly hiding scientific data on "global cooling" and subverting the peer-review process. These allegations emerged from the selective leak of hundreds of emails he had sent from his university computer. The controversy resulting from the publication of these emails on the internet has now led to four different official investigations.

Terence Kealey: The advocacy of Science

As everyone knows, Professor Phil Jones, the director of the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia, has sent some unwise emails. In one he boasted of using statistical “tricks” to hide declines in global temperatures, in another he advocated the deletion of certain data, and in yet another he proposed a boycott of journals that published inconvenient papers

Michael McCarthy: Why let the facts get in the way of a political opportunity?

Polarisation: there is the reason, in a word, why scepticism about climate change, previously fairly muted, is now enjoying its moment in the sun. Tragically, this issue of atmospheric science, which will affect all our futures, has become politically polarised, and it is now broadly the case that, if we leave aside the scientific community, those who think climate change is a mortal threat are on the liberal-left, whereas those who profess it to be all an exaggeration are on the right.
