Remember how Geoffrey Boulton tied himself into knots about his connections to the UEA and the climate science community. Now the emboldened Trevor Davies isn’t even bothering. Alert readers at CA here and at Bishop Hill’s spotted the following 2006 picture of Oxburgh (3rd from right) with Davies (far right).
Caption: Lord Oxburgh and the Vice-Chancellor [of U of Newcsatle] joined a group of delegates for the first of three annual HSBC lectures. From left: Mark Vines of HSBC; Francis Sullivan of HSBC; Vice-Chancellor Professor Christopher Edwards [of U of Newcsatle] ; Professor Keith Tovey of UEA; Lord Oxburgh; Professor Paul Younger [of U of Newcsatle] ; Professor Trevor Davies of UEA. Running text: Lord Oxburgh’s lecture rounded off the first HSBC Partnership in Environmental Innovation Day, attended by representatives from HSBC and the University of East Anglia as well as a number of high-profile business partners and alumni.
We discussed Davies in an earlier CA post here. In that letter, Davies (who has vociferously denounced the public circulation of the Climategate Letters) sent a “leaked” government document to the CRU Five so that they would have an edge over their rivals for government funding.
I now have a leaked document which spells out some of the research councils’ thinking. I will get a copy over to CRU today. Please keep this document within the CRU5, since it may compromise the source.
To my knowledge, no climate scientists to date have spoken out against Davies’ use of a leaked document nor have any demanded that he be prosecuted. I wonder if the Norwich police are working as diligently on this case as they are on the source of the Climategate dossier.
