CLIMATEGATE: BBC: UN body wants probe of climate e-mail row. “The head of the UN’s climate science body says claims that UK scientists manipulated data on global warming should be investigated. . . . Dr Pachauri told BBC Radio 4’s The Report programme that the claims were serious and he wants them investigated. . . . Jonathon Porritt, the former chairman of the UK Sustainable Development Commission, called the developments ‘very worrying’ because the row threatened to undermine the integrity of the IPCC. ‘Without that integrity, politicians cannot necessarily trust what the scientists have been telling them,’ he warned.”
