Climategate NOT A Tragedy
Climategate is not a tragedy; it is an opportunity to clean house, get rid of the vermin who have polluted the scientific community called climate "science". These so-called scientists, their fanatical supporters, assorted hypocrites like Al Gore, and their political supporters need to be weeded out and thrown out. This is a scandal of epic proportions and need to be dealt with as openly and strongly as possible.
The Scientific Tragedy of Climategate: Can climate change science recover from the damage done by leaked emails?
Leaked emails from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia have provoked a growing scandal in climate change science that has been dubbed Climategate. The real tragedy of Climategate is that it impairs humanity's ability to assess and react properly to a potentially huge problem. It has put a cloud of doubt over the validity of some considerable body of climate change research. Science Correspondent Ronald Bailey describes how, in their zeal to marginalize and stifle their critics, an insular band of climate researchers has damaged the very science they sought to defend.
