This is science or lack of science so I thought we should discuss it.

Scientific progress depends on accurate and complete data. It also relies on replication. The past couple of days have uncovered some shocking revelations about the baloney practices that pass as sound science about climate change.
It was announced Thursday afternoon that computer hackers had obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. Those e-mails involved communication among many scientific researchers and policy advocates with similar ideological positions all across the world. Those purported authorities were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global-warming claims.

Justice is served. What goes around comes back to haunt you. The intelligent meteorologist have been saying follow the money for years. Maybe people will wake up now. Great post.

As a former geology major back in the 60's and later in the 80's, the sun has a lot more influence then man as does volcanoes. I think there are some people with an agenda that want to separate us from our hard earned money, i.e. more taxes at the gas pump.

Much agreed and I know who a lot of them are.

Personally, I think we should do the best we can to protect the very environment we live in, and we shouldn't be "scared" into doing so. If data is being hidden or covered up, this needs to stop. That's not how science is supposed to work. However, like most things media-related, I'm automatically skeptical of this report. The media has a knack for twisting things around in order to provide a sensational story. It would be nice to get a better idea of what the context of the comments were.

careful now; i've stated before on here that man-made global warming is a myth and was attacked as being a "right-wing conspirator" who denies the truth.
