I won’t bore you with the details of Climategate. There are plenty of sites to read about the details. Instead, I’ll just reference an article about the Obama administration response:
Climate czar Carol Browner on Wednesday rejected claims that e-mails stolen from a British university show that climate scientists trumped up global-warming numbers, saying she considers the science settled… Ms. Browner said the only people who still doubt global warming is happening and that humans are to blame are “a very small group of people who continue to say this isn’t a real problem, that we don’t need to do anything.”
Kind of sums it up nicely, doesn’t it?
