Climategate: laws were broken

The UK Information Commissioner's Office has determined that the global warming advocates at the University of East Anglia "broke the law" when they refused to release climate data under the UK's freedom of information act. The (UK) Times reports:
The university at the centre of the climate change row over stolen e-mails broke the law by refusing to hand over its raw data for public scrutiny.

The University of East Anglia breached the Freedom of Information Act by refusing to comply with requests for data concerning claims by its scientists that man-made emissions were causing global warming.

The Information Commissioner’s Office decided that UEA failed in its duties under the Act but said that it could not prosecute those involved because the complaint was made too late, The Times has learnt. The ICO is now seeking to change the law to allow prosecutions if a complaint is made more than six months after a breach.
Considering the amount of the world's resources that have been wasted on global warming alarmism, it is a shame that they won't be prosecuted for this.
