Boulton’s Nature Editorial

Geoffrey Boulton, who did an execrable job on the Muir Russell “inquiry”, has written a good editorial in Nature here reporting on the recent Royal Society report that he chaired. There have been a number of reports over the years, urging improved data archiving, and yet the problems persist. Boulton’s report is merely one more. […]

Royal Society Report on Data Sharing

Although Geoffrey Boulton was the lead author, the Royal Society report on data sharing published today was surprisingly even handed. (h/t Bishop Hill.) Climate Audit and McIntyre S receive a cameo mention on page 40: At the other extreme, there is a small, but increasingly numerous body of engaged “citizen scientists” that wish to dig […]

Geoffrey Boulton and IPCC Secrecy

Phil Jones’ written answers to the Muir Russell panel shed interesting light on the insularity of IPCC authors, who see nothing odd about a system in which reviewers do not see either author responses to their review comments or the comments of other reviewers until long after the release of the final document. Jones’ comments […]

More Mendacity from East Anglia Revealed

More developments from Bishop Hill on the strange relationship between the University of East Anglia and the supposedly “independent” Muir Russell review. On yet another occasion, the University gave untrue answers in order to avoid FOI disclosure, an untrue answer that led to several follow-up FOI requests that they were unable to subvert, but which […]

Boultonizing Holland’s Submission

Interesting new light on the Boultonization of Holland’s submission to Muir Russell at Bishop Hill (here). Muir Russell’s first statement upon being appointed to look into CRU was: Given the nature of the allegations it is right that someone who has no links to either the University or the Climate Science community looks at the […]

“UK Govt’s Chief Adviser on Climate Change”

http://www.uea.ac.uk/mac/comm/media/press/2009/dec/CRUreview Reader ZT has pointed to a video (see here) in which Geoffrey Boulton, erstwhile “contributor to G8 preparatory and Intergovernmental Panels on climate change”, opens a Coca Cola bottling plant in Romania, identified this time as the “UK Govt’s Chief Adviser on Climate Change”. I’m all in favor of energy efficient plants and have […]

Boulton Information

We’re spreading interesting Boulton links across too many threads and need to pull them together in one place. Let’s keep the topical discussions, but please crosspost links to this thread. The person posting the link may have a brief synopsis, but please do not use this for arguing or editorializing. http://www.cce-review.org/About.php None have any links […]

The Boulton Bio Watch

Question – when will the Inquiry come clean on their webpage about Boulton’s UEA links? Boulton’s Inquiry bio doesn’t mention that he had been employed at UEA from 1968 to 1986. At the Inquiry press conference on Feb 11, Boulton admitted being employed at UEA until 1980: I should also add something that ought to […]

Boulton’s Changing Story

Yesterday I reported that Boulton’s 2007 CV included the following: 9. CONTRIBUTIONS TO SCIENCE & RESEARCH POLICY … As contributor to G8 Preparatory Groups and Intergovernmental Panels on climate change This morning, the hapless Muir Russell Inquiry added the following to their FAQ : Some of the blogs are saying that Professor Geoffrey Boulton is […]

“None have links to …IPCC”

Inquiry: None [of the Team] have any links to the Climatic Research Unit, or the United Nations’ Independent Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Boulton CV Chinese link 9. CONTRIBUTIONS TO SCIENCE & RESEARCH POLICY … As contributor to G8 Preparatory Groups and Intergovernmental Panels on climate change And oh yes, another thing. Remember that other […]
