Original CRU Data Has Been Destroyed

The original CRU data was destroyed. This is not a new story, but one that has taken on new importance. Science is all about verification. The results should be repeatable and the conclusions the same. Without the original data, there is no ability to verify data or repeat tests. That means you are basically stuff taking someone's word for it. That is not science, and is bad enough when the researchers reputations are not in question. Now that these researchers reputations are in doubt from the leaked/hacked emails there is a serious problem, one with no obvious solutions.

"The Times of London is reporting in its Sunday edition that the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia has destroyed the original data used to construct the historical climate record that purports to show a temperature increase. That is, the hope that independent scientists could assess the "adjustments" made to the raw data is now dashed, for the raw data no longer exists. This fact has actually been known for months, but the mainstream media ignored it -- no doubt intentionally -- until the email scandal broke last week."
