He lost the data?

Climate Change scare monger, Phil Jones, admits to have misplaced climate data:

Prof Jones stepped down as director of the University of East Anglia’s climate change unit in December after leaked emails appeared to show academics were manipulating data to bolster claims that global warming is caused by humans.

Now the academic has admitted he may have lost track of some of the data used to produce the famous “hockey stick” graph, which uses climate readings from worldwide weather stations to show a sharp rise in global temperatures.

The Climate Research Unit formerly headed by Prof Jones is responsible for analysing data from hundreds of weather stations to produce "evidence" of global warming which is used by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Prof Jones also admitted that his own lack of organisation had contributed to his reluctance to share crucial data with climate change sceptics, but denied that he deliberately distorted the evidence.

VH: Yes, Mr. Jones. I'm sure that Steve McIntyre roundly exposing your "hockey stick" theory as a farce had nothing to do with your "lost" data.

Translation: He deleted most of the data because of that pesky freedom of information act.

Maybe next time they try to scam the entire world with lies and misinformation they'll hire some computer geeks that can properly protect their servers.
