Congratulations are due to Professor John Beddington, the government's chief scientist and the man who put forward Lord Oxburgh as the "best candidate" to chair the inquiry into UEA. Professor Beddington has been awarded a knighthood in the Queen's birthday honours list.
Other climatological gongs are:
- Professor John Shepherd of Southampton (OBE)
- Peter Betts, Director of International Climate Change, DECC (OBE)
- Kirsty Schneeberger, Co-ordinator, UK Youth Climate Coalition (MBE)
(The UK Youth Climate Coalition is an organisation I came across recently. It was founded in 2008).
