While the "Climate change e-mail scandal underscores myth of pure science....com/news/opinion/commentary" The real scandal is that people here and all over the country do not get what exactly the emqails reveal about things and themselves... this is "illustrated by the e-mails" and the emails reveal that it "is not that scientists tried to undermine peer review, fudge and conceal data, and torpedo competitors, but that scientists and advocates on both sides of the climate debate continue to claim political authority derived from a false ideal of pure science. This charade is a disservice to both science and democracy. To science, because the reality cannot live up to the myth; to democracy, because the difficult political choices created by the genuine but also uncertain threat of climate change are concealed by the scientific debate." " The East Anglia controversy serves as a reminder that when the politics are divisive and the science is sufficiently complex, the boundary between the two may become indiscernible." If anyone here were truly interested in truth and facts they would cease the gotcha crap that passes for debate here. But as they say in the old country "that ain't gonna happen"
