    The university at the center of the climate change scandal over stolen e-mails broke the law by refusing to hand over its raw data for public scrutiny.

    The University of East Anglia breached Britain's Freedom of Information Act by refusing to comply with requests for data concerning claims by its scientists that man-made emissions were causing global warming.

    The Information Commissioner's Office decided that UEA failed in its duties under the act but said that it could not prosecute those involved because the complaint was made too late, The Times of London has learned. The ICO is now seeking to change the law to allow prosecutions if a complaint is made more than six months after a breach. . . .

    Typical legal shell game, pass a law, but set it up so that if your buddies know the law they can stall for a few months and go scot free.

    It's "scot" with a little "s" because it refers to a tax, not the indigenous people of Scotland. :tongueout::rofl:

    Oh great. Now we'll have to listen to the MMGW suckers say "If they did something wrong then why weren't they charged with a crime? Huh? Huh? Huh?". :shakehead:

    And don't forget..............................all the snow on the Himalayans are supposed to be gone soon.



    What? THAT was a lie also? No "science" used in making the claim, just some guy's personal belief? Now what could be accomplished by that?



    Oh! Now I get it!


    Bunch of lying fear causing morons. Don't know who's worse..........the guys that did it......................or the gullible folks who bought into it all because it "validated" their own personal beliefs. They're both about the same. "I'll lie and get the folks in an uproar, just to achieve my own desires.", or "I'll run with it because it's what I want to happen, just to achieve my own desires.".


    When a few folks who have absolutely no information, facts, or reason to make the claims they do...........chime in on things, one has to wonder why. That so much of their drivel was taken without question, speaks more to our stupidity than it does their deviousness.
