BEIJING, July 8 (Xinhuanet) -- The inquiry into the leakage of climate scientists' e-mails showed no evidence that the global warming theory is forged by scientists.

A major inquiry in the past six month, often known to the public as the "climategate" inquiry, led by the independent civil servant Sir Muir Russell, at last showed results that it cleared the evidence the scientists were dishonest or that global warming was not a danger, according to USA Today.

Professor Phil Jones, the leading climate change scientist at the University of East Anglia in England, who was also at the heart of the so-called "climategate", will be reinstated in his job as Director of Research in Climate Research Unit.

"We hope this means the wilder assertions about the climate science community will stop," said the Vice Chancellor of UEA Edward Acton.

However, the review of the so-called climategate e-mails also urged climate scientists to let open the culture of secrecy, which created public mistrust of their research achievements.
