Phil Jones, the British professor who was embroiled in an email scandal over climate change research, considered killing himself, he told The Times of London. He also said that people continue to threaten him as well. “I was shocked. People said I should go and kill myself. They said that they knew where I lived. They were coming from all over the world," Jones said. He defends the work done by his climate research unit at the University of East Anglia but has stepped down from the post.
