The independent panel set up to examine the science produced by the climatic research unit at the University of East Anglia has been named. The panel was commissioned by the UEA in response to the “climategate” emails scandal, and the Royal Society – the UK’s national science academy – advised on its make-up.

It will be chaired by Lord Oxburgh, a prominent British scientist. The other members will be: Prof Huw Davies, Professor of Physics at the Institute for Atmospheric & Climate Science at ETH Zürich; Prof Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Meteorology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Prof Lisa Graumlich, Director of the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at The University of Arizona; Prof David Hand, Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College; Prof Herbert Huppert, Professor of Theoretical Geophysics at the University of Cambridge; and Prof Michael Kelly, Prince Philip Professor of Technology at the University of Cambridge.

But if the UEA or the Royal Society thought they would deflect criticism by choosing the former chairman of Shell as its chair, they were wrong.
