From Andrew Orlowski, the Register UK:
In Parliament’s enquiries into the Climategate Affair, Graham Stringer MP was surprised to learn that the CRU team couldn’t produce the same result twice.
“When I asked Oxburgh if [Keith] Briffa [CRU academic] could reproduce his own results, he said in lots of cases he couldn’t,” Stringer told us. “That just isn’t science. It’s literature. If somebody can’t reproduce their own results, and nobody else can, then what is that work doing in the scientific journals?”

In case you’ve never seen it, the Journal of Irreproducible Results actually exists, and can be found here. They have an interesting book, Extreme Weather as it is linked to “global warming”.
