FYI, the "trick" referenced in the email and by Limbaugh is explained here in detail.

NASA scientist: Emails do not show that "global warming is a hoax"

NASA's Gavin Schmidt: Critics "are using language used in science and interpreting it in a completely different way." Wired's Threat Level blog reported on November 20 that Gavin Schmidt, a climate scientist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said: "There's nothing in the e-mails that shows that global warming is a hoax. ... There's no funding by nefarious groups. There's no politics in any of these things; nobody from the [United Nations] telling people what to do. There's nothing hidden, no manipulation. It's just scientists talking about science, and they're talking relatively openly as people in private e-mails generally are freer with their thoughts than they would be in a public forum. The few quotes that are being pulled out [are out] of context. People are using language used in science and interpreting it in a completely different way." Schmidt is a contributor to the Real Climate blog, which has stated that some of the stolen CRU emails "involve people" at Real Climate.

Rush Limbaugh -- who had previously condemned the "thugs" who hacked then-Gov. Sarah Palin's email account -- joined right-wing bloggers in touting a series of emails that were apparently stolen from the UK's Climate Research Unit [CRU]. Limbaugh proceeded to distort at least one of the emails in order to falsely suggest that it is evidence that global warming is "made up" and that leading climate scientists have been engaged in "substantial fraud."

Again, I could care less what he has to say. Why would you go to him to see what the truth is? I posted you the original emails, read them yourself.

Here they are in search-able format.

Read them, cross verify validity with RC if you must, I could care less. Stop spinning and start actually entering the discussion with your own ability to reason.

Nobody who has researched the science cares about your political approach. Just the facts, just the data, the rest is speculation.

Again, you have not read the emails, Gavin is implicated in those emails as well. Seriously, THINK!

Why'd you remove the link?

Thankfully it was caught and posted, for the record.

Eh...sicky...Gavin is part of the cabal, in fact they (the cabal) started this "blog" as a way to beat back the "deniers". If you notice on the site, in the comment section, he is taking a lot of heat AND answering for the other members of the cabal.

Is there a reason we should now take his excuses with a straight face?

Too afraid to read the emails, sicky? Too afraid your GW-fanatic world is crumbling?

I just have to ask; What do you think a guy who is knee-deep in the scandal would say?

Resorting to lying isn't going to change the facts. But you have exposed your true self, thanks. *credibility-meet-toilet*
