Read here. Climategate has exposed the attack on fundamental scientific principles by the heavily politicized IPCC and overly funded climate research communities. Their political objective was to "prove" that human CO2 was causing global warming, which would result in catastrophic calamities that only an international, "well respected" body of politicians (like we saw at Copenhagen) could solve.
Luckily, for all the rest of us, Climategate has provided the crack in the prison door of politically correct science, allowing a growing number of previously silent, respected scientists and professionals to speak out and save us a fate from the dungeons of an Orwellian environment of political lies and double-speak.
Amazingly, the crack has even allowed the the NYT to do some bashing of the politically correct, liberal/left, global warming extreme stupidity! The stupidity and climate science fraud have gotten pretty bad when it appears the NYT's no longer 'has their back.'
Andy Revkin: “Our coverage, looked at in toto, has never bought the catastrophe conclusion and always aimed to examine the potential for both overstatement and understatement.”
And BTW, it is now safe to point out to the local high school jerk teacher, who continuously shows the Al Gore film to your children, that even the New York Times (with the exceptions of 'Twin's Moronic', Krugman and Friedman) doesn't buy into the polar-bears-are-dying shtick any longer.
