Climategate Watch: Phil Jones to be peer-reviewed.

Took them long enough.

LONDON — Britain’s University of East Anglia says the director of its prestigious Climatic Research Unit is stepping down pending an investigation into allegations that he overstated the case for man-made climate change.

The university says Phil Jones will relinquish his position until the completion of an independent review into allegations that he worked to alter the way in which global temperature data was presented.

And one hopes that they do a better job with him than with what Jones produced.
