E-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data but the messages don’t support claims that the science of global warming was faked, according to an exhaustive review by The Associated Press.
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.
The people on the Global Warming skepticism side are increasingly behaving like Ufologists. Anyone who calls a weather-balloon a weather-balloon is imminently considered part of the conspiracy to hide the truth.
