The way these things almost always work in the real world, is that Jones is probably just the tip of a very large iceberg.
Jones was well aware that his climate center was the leading center, of only four in the world, that was entrusted with generating, maintaining, collating and disseminating raw climate data. Jones openly admits to destroying data, hiding data, cherry picking data, and dishonestly processing data, knowing that the U.N. and thousands of other scientists, organizations, and governments would be using his falsified raw data to make trends and to draw conclusions. He did this knowing that government policies in dozens of countries (at least) and the use of hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayer money was at stake.
As of now, we won't know which stories about the climate and about global warming are true, which stories are wild exaggerations, and which stories are complete fabrications. Until all climate scientists, and their data and models, have been investigated and cleaned up, my default position will be to assume that every climate story or global warming story that I see in the MSM is a flat out lie.
You can start by ignoring the media and actually reading some proper climate science websites. For somebody who continues to maintain his neutrality, you are very quick to attack climate change activists and surprisingly silent in criticising tactics of the sceptics.
