Prince Charles defends 'climategate' scientists

London, Dec.4 (ANI): The Prince of Wales, Charles, has come out in support of the British scientists embroiled in the "Climategate" saga, describing their treatment as "appalling".

During a speech at London's Science Museum to open a new 4.5 million pound atmosphere gallery, Charles said "climate science has taken a battering of late".

In January this year, he visited the University of East Anglia's School of Environmental Sciences of which he is a patron, to discuss the appalling treatment the scientists had endured during the so-called Climategate row.

The Climategate row was sparked when emails from CRU scientists were hacked and released online last year.

The Telegraph reports that despite three inquiries in the scandal the actual events are still shrouded in a "huge cloud of doubt".

Prince Charles has previously hit out at climate change sceptics claiming they used "pseudo science" and "intimidation" to stop the world from addressing catastrophic global warming.

He has likened the failure to combat rising temperatures across the world to playing "Russian roulette with the future of our children".(ANI)
