Are we having a Climategate yet?

“Hundreds of private e-mail messages and documents hacked from a computer server at a British university are causing a stir among global warming skeptics, who say they show that climate scientists conspired to overstate the case for a human influence on climate change.”

“In the 1999 e-mail, Jones wrote of using a trick to hide an apparent decline in recent global temperatures on a chart being prepared for use by a meteorological organization.”

Damn, this global warming debate really is a hot subject.

“The e-mail had been taken completely out of context.”


One response

  1. We have created and institutionalized incentives for fraud and penalties for honesty and candor. Not just for men of science; for virtually every trade and walk of life. For many men, the touchstone of ethical judgment is no longer “Is it right?” It’s “Can I get away with it?”We have destroyed the bedrock of freedom: our ability to trust.
    Damn the bastards who will never be held responsible for their wrongdoing.
