Here, for example, are just a few criticisms of the Oxburgh whitewash.
The panel appears to have been deliberately selected to have a majority who would not address the review objectively and to exclude sceptical views entirely.
UEA appointed Oxburgh as chairman of the panel in the full knowledge that he had conflicts of interest.
UEA restricted the scope of the Oxburgh inquiry to published papers only, avoiding the serious allegations related to the IPCC activities of CRU staff.
The scope was further restricted to the conduct of the scientists. UEA had led the Science and Technology Committee members to believe that the quality of CRU’s scientific work would be re-assessed. The committee’s chairman, Phil Willis, felt that the UEA had misled them.
