More vindication for warmers

Yet another expensive enquiry in the UK has cleared the Climategate scientists of fudging their data. Good job, as some of the poor dears have in the meantime considered suicide and some have received death threats. Apparently, one of the methods suggested for both was chaining to stakes on Spitsbergen and daubing with seal oil so as to combine the event with a chance to count just how many polar bears are still around.

The picture shows the Climatic research unit at the Socialist University of East Anglia, Norwich, Norfolk, where the data in question was acquired from some old thermometers left lying about on top of the canteen radiator. Built of blocks of ice to give it that politically correct, iglooey, eskimoey, indigenous ethnic victimization look, the building is in danger of melting and causing global floods if the funding dries up.
