    The Associated Press apparently analyzed the emails and isn't too alarmed.

    Canadian source for an AP article
    It goes on and on, has some pretty strong words to say about the fellas who ignored the Freedom of Information Act requests. Greater transparency should come of this.

    Of course if it doesn't maybe I can convince the Mrs. we need another Alaskan vacation to see where them glaciers have moved to with perhaps a layover in Vegas so I can check for snow on Mt Charleston.

    Already posted this. Isn't it telling that they used what 11 reporters to fact check Palin but only 5 for this.

    Ah, but the wing nuts will be beating this dead horse for months to come.

    Perhaps they can make enough copies to prevent another record melt of the north polar ice this year.

    I heard this on the 24/7 news as well, that the emails (in context) do nothing to take away from global warming....

    wonder who the thief was.... was this ever determined?

    If the Warmergate thread is any indication. All of the people who are in the belief that Global Warming is fake have already had plenty of orgasms and have been getting drunk in celebration since this first came out.

    Guess their hangover is going to suck even worse when they find out this little tidbit. :lol:

    Except Tessio betrayed Don Vito's Family. So your analogy falls flat. :lol:

    As the warming continues into the coming decade, we should all remind the brainless trolls just how badly they have been misled. Not that they will admit it, they are still insisting that WMD were in Iraq.
