Scientists who exposed doubts about the climate science of the IPCC and the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) are now considering a boycott of the Review led by Sir Muir Russell over the inclusion of a King's Buildings scientist.
Professor Geoffrey Boulton has failed to inspire confidence in those who exposed the concerns about CRU, as mistakes have been unearthed in statements made by the Review team which appear to minimise his involvement with the IPCC and CRU at the University of East Anglia.
Initially, the Review biography of Professor Boulton omitted his previous term at the University of East Anglia. The clarification by Professor Boulton failed to mention that his period there apparently overlapped with Professor Phil Jones for around ten years and extended 6 years beyond the period he admitted.
The Review specifically denied Professor Boulton had any connection with the IPCC or had any prejudicial interest in climate change of climate science. It has now become apparent that a published CV for him claims he has advised various governments on climate change and the IPCC.
Now Douglas Keenan who made specific allegations of malpractice at CRU initiated discussions on whether or not submissions should be made to the Russell Review.
