Local climate scientist apologises

Professor Tom Crowley
An influential Edinburgh University climate scientist, based at the King's Buildings, has made a public apology over untruths he published in a major scientific publication.

The apology concerned a 2005 article in which he wrongly accused a critic as corresponding with him in a 'peremptory' and 'threatening' manner. He had also mischaracterised key aspects of a research paper from the critic. 

The apology, from Professor Tom Crowley, also relates to correspondence he had with the same critic following Professor Crowley's comments on a New York Times blog on 31st December 2010.
