More on climategate

Leading British scientists at the University of East Anglia, who were accused of manipulating climate change data - dubbed Climategate - have agreed to publish their figures in full.

Of course, one of the touchstones of proper science is supposed to be that scientists publish their data openly for examination, and for other scientists to try to replicate. Yes, much of the activity that is going on in the world under the banner of science is not open, but this is because its either military research or research by commercial companies who are hoping to discover information that they can protect. Yet why on earth should such university departments - supposedly studying a subject that will affect us all - keep their data secret?
