Climate scientist Dr. Phil Jones to Parliament

Jones said he expected to be cleared of accusations that he tried to pervert the scientific process.

Sceptics Nigel Lawson and Benny Peiser embarrassed themselves today with their sceptic foolishness, while UK scientists neutered the hostile interrogators with facts.
Under questions from the committee, prominent climate sceptics Nigel Lawson and Benny Peiser, who represented the Global Warming Policy Foundation, conceded that the use of the word "trick" was innocuous. Lawson said the issue was that the scientists had not disclosed the way they blended several separate data sets into single graph, which he called a "fudge". Jones said this was not true, and the technique was widely discussed in scientific papers.

Lawson and Peiser said they did not think the release of the emails questioned the underlying science of climate change. "This is nothing to do with the basic science, that's not the issue," Lawson said. Peiser said the emails had "tarnished the image of British science around the world"

Yeah and falsely so as the testimony shows.
