The committee investigating climate scientist Phil Jones, central figure in the so-called "Climategate" controversy has released a 60-page report clearing him of charges that he had manipulated climate data. It appears the storm brewing since the release of hundreds of hacked emails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at Great Britain's University of East Anglia last November will now dissipate.

"Dissipation" seems unlikely, as the report had some highly critical comments about Jones's employer, the University of East Anglia. The UK paper The Guardian seems to think that the committee, while deeply concerned about the scandal, didn't want to lay all the blame on one man. Two additional inquiries are still going on in England, as well as one in the US. Readers who have been following Science Buzz's coverage of the controversy know that there is quite a bit more to it than just Phil Jones.
