"Sceptics - most scientific evidence is against you. I don't know why you ignore this particular science but are happy to benefit from modern medicine, technology etc."
Or rather most scientific evidence which 3rd parties have been *allowed* to see is against you, which is rather the point.
This is an inquiry into the *methods* used by the CRU and the credibility and impartiality of the leader of this (scientific) investigation is *critical*. Lord Oxburgh is not just "minded" to believe in AGW (but willing to change his mind), he is a member of a group *dedicated* to promoting that view and is actively involved with companies which expect to benefit from that view *regardless* of weather it is proved false once they have made their money.
CRU's repeated refusal to release *all* its data, coupled with what we now know of the programs used to analyse (and it seems in some case to create it) it given by the harrry_read_me file made the selection of impartial team members *essential* to avoid charges of "Well he would say that, wouldn't he."
I am *not* a skeptic. I believe that human kind *has* reached a point where the size of its activity *is* great enough to influence global climate. But that is my *personal* belief and the shameful way this "research" has been conducted makes me doubt my view. A scientist who says "It's real, but we can't tell you how we know this," is *not* a scientist, he's a priest with a dogma.
