About those climategate emails...

The folks at Factcheck have had a look at the whole thing. You may want to see what they have to say before jumping on one train or another.

In late November 2009, more than 1,000 e-mails between scientists at the Climate Research Unit of the U.K.’s University of East Anglia were stolen and made public by an as-yet-unnamed hacker. Climate skeptics are claiming that they show scientific misconduct that amounts to the complete fabrication of man-made global warming. We find that to be unfounded:

Count me in the camp of "skeptical of both sides, and willing to admit that both have an economic stake in their official viewpoint, but more likely to believe the climate change side of things than the climate change deniers, whom we know are in someone else's pocket, and clearly selling us a bill of goods."
