Dr. Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU) is telling the Times Online that he contemplated suicide after receiving death threats and being otherwise overwhelmed by the scandal. I don't care how big the fraud, no one deserves to get death threats, including Phil Jones.
Professor Phil Jones said in an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times that he had thought about killing himself “several times”. He acknowledged similarities to Dr David Kelly, the scientist who committed suicide after being exposed as the source for a BBC report that alleged the government had “sexed up” evidence to justify the invasion of Iraq.

In emails that were hacked into and seized upon by global-warming sceptics before the Copenhagen climate summit in December, Jones appeared to call upon his colleagues to destroy scientific data rather than release it to people intent on discrediting their work monitoring climate change.

Jones, 57, said he was unprepared for the scandal: “I am just a scientist. I have no training in PR or dealing with crises.”
I'm no psychiatrist but I would think that coming clean and admitting it was all a big fraudulent scam would be liberating. But alas, Jones is still sticking by the "science".
Jones has temporarily stood down as director of the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia. He fiercely defends the unit’s science — “I stand by it 100%” — but now accepts that he did not treat Freedom of Information (FoI) requests for the data as seriously as he should have done. Jones believes that the unit was maliciously targeted with multiple FoI requests by climate change sceptics determined to disrupt its work.
Well, at least it was a partial mea culpa but Jones would probably feel much better if he made it a full one.

Phil, I'm glad you reconsidered and didn't end your life but PLEASE come clean and admit the truth.

His egomania is now world famous but he may be at his most ego-centric in this video (fast forward to 8:25). There is something very disturbing about relaying a story about a deceased individual who insisted on being buried in an Obama t-shirt. Almost as disturbing is the laughter that follows after he said it.

This man has some serious issues.

Nashville, TN is host to the Tea Party convention this weekend. Andrew Breitbart was there and gave a speech slamming the media, saying they're not just biased; they have "contempt for the American people". Anyone who thought the tea party movement was about to fizzle is discovering instead that the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts has done exactly the opposite.

Simply awesome music video put to the music of One Republic's "Apologize" but with lyrics meant to illustrate why America's founding fathers had to write our founding documents. The repression they were feeling back then from Great Britain is what the majority of Americans are feeling from the current government of the United States.

Our founders were fed up with an out-of-touch British government that needed the colonists to subsidize their debt and largesse. When those colonists stood up and said, "no more", the Brits didn't like it very much. 1776 is about people collectively saying, "enough" to big government and tyranny. Sound familiar?

Today's Tea Party movement is about the same thing and it's been winning some battles lately. It's peacefully but assertively taking back America and everyone is finding a way to play a part, including these guys.

Very well done.
