Watchdog: UK university hid climate data

Britain's data protection watchdog says the university at the center of a climate change dispute over stolen e-mails broke the law by refusing to comply with public requests for climate data.
The Information Commissioner's Office says the University of East Anglia broke the Freedom of Information Act.
The organization says Thursday a cache of e-mail exchanges between leading climate scientists _ stolen from the university's respected climate research center and recently made public _ show that the institution failed to deal with a request for information submitted in 2008.
Climate skeptics had seized on the thousands of leaked e-mails as proof that the case for man-made climate change has been exaggerated.
