In a piece that was just posted today (Sat. 12/12 - G), the AP, after having objectively reviewed the emails from "Climategate" comes out unequivocally on the side of Truth.
The 1,073 e-mails examined by the AP show that scientists harbored private doubts, however slight and fleeting, even as they told the world they were certain about climate change. However, the exchanges don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.
True, some of the emails show many of the scientists to be cantankerous, overly political, slightly mysterious, or in some cases, downright childish. Nevertheless, the theory that man-made activities are causing Global Warming remains intact, despite the whining of Conservatives.
More, but the shorter version is that these scientists were trying to very slightly fudge tree ring data from Russia, and it was ten years ago fer chrissake. Shit, Moosebreath was probably watching them gather the data from her house.
The Regressive Deniers will hang their hat on anything because they have nothing, but their corporate masters demand it for profit's sake.
