    The controversy swirling around the leaked e-mails of climate scientists apparently trying to downplay data and exclude dissenting opinions has led to calls for President Obama to skip this month's climate summit in Denmark until the e-mails can be investigated.

    Instead, the White House announced Friday that Obama was doubling down on his commitment to the summit's goals and moving his visit later in the month, hoping it will secure a "meaningful" agreement.

    The scandal being referred to as "Climate-gate" has rallied global warming skeptics, who say the threat is exaggerated -- let alone caused by humans. In some of the e-mails stolen by hackers and posted online, scientists at Britain's University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit appear to discuss hiding or deleting data that may contradicts global warming claims. Others discuss ways of keeping competing research out of peer-reviewed journals.

    Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is the most prominent figure to call on Obama to boycott the conference in Copenhagen in the wake of the e-mails' release.

    "The president's decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal," she said in a posting on her Facebook page. "Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices."

    In other words his agenda for more government control over the private sector outwieighs the flawed premise by man-made Global warming?

    he's gonna do it anyway. And it fits right in there with what he's been doing. I guess he has t stay on track with his marxist Agenda. Damn the AGW Torpedos and straight ahead...even if it sinks him ultimately.

    Ethics mean nothing to a movement such as his. He is going to kiss the world's ass when told to by the mandates of the Marxist March to Maximum Manipulation of Mankind!

    One only has to understand how committed Obama is to radically changing America. His proponents in the Media refuse to hinder that in any way, because they agree with the agenda. People I know who don't watch FNC are completely unaware of this fiasco. But to them GW has just become white noise.

    Obama wants to put it off till the media can generate enough false information to debunk the emails and those who did the hacking.

    Right now he looks like a fool...but he knows the power of the media. They can squeeze blood out of a turnip or make a non-issue into a full blown crisis.

    Climategate is only the tip of the iceberg. There is a multitude of similar threats we need to be concerned about.

    This site explains climategate, and a whole lot of other plots as well
    .

    Beware, be very aware!

    Be aware, in fact, of what kind of thinking is really behind the WCT of scientists attempting to impose a world government on an unwilling but unknowing populace.
