    (Remember the East Anglia University e-mail cache that suddenly got loosed upon the world? Here's more where that came from and it ain't looking good for Doctor mann & Co. Al, it might be time to cash in your chips, sell that jet while you can still get some money for it. Go easy on the maseuses. They're just hard working gal trying to make a living.)

    "Observations do not show rising temperatures throughout the tropical
    troposphere unless you accept one single study and approach and discount a wealth of others. This is just downright dangerous. We need to communicate the uncertainty and be honest. Phil, hopefully we can find time to discuss these further if necessary [...]"

    "What appears to be a new batch of emails and other documents from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit has been released.

    "Contents include more than 5,000 emails and other documents, some relating to work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    A similar release in 2009 triggered the "ClimateGate" affair and accusations of fraud that inquiries later dismissed.

    Now, as then, the release comes shortly before the annual UN climate summit.

    The university has yet to comment on the document cache, which is posted on a Russian server"

    I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes might not be too clever in the long run."

    Guess what, "Political Spin" and "Global Warming" aren't mutually exclusive. Proponents are just trying to catch up to what the skeptics/deniers have been doing for years. How you present the case is what I get out of the emails. Doesn't prove anything else, one way or another.

    What that scandal showed me is that major players in this subject matter are willing to ride roughshod over the data to make a point. As far as I'm concern the jury is still out on AGW, and until the data is conclusive, we are not going to move into caves to make leftists feel better.

    I didn't realize East Anglia University had a monopoly on the scientific consensus of climate change.

    It would be nice if this could be tracked back to more than just an anonymous blogger's page and it was more then selected passages from "5000" e-mails.

    FAIL!!! No one is asking you to move to a cave. Post something worthwhile, please. You're doing an injustice to your avatar.

    Climategate 2? More UEA hacked emails - Telegraph

    This might help, the Telegraph is usually reasonably unbiased - although as a source it is right leaning.

    The University of East Anglia doesn't have a monopoly on anything... it is, however, a key part of the international research into climate change.

    Given the observations from satellites, ground stations, and ocean going devices, it is dead certain that the world is rapidly warming. One can get the data from USGS, NOAA, or NASA.

    Now there are only two ways the world can warm. It can recieve more energy from the sun, and it can retain heat that it normally reflects or radiates into space.

    For the last 50 years, the Total Solar Irradiance has be slowly declining. However, in the last 150 years we have increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere by 40%. CO2 absorbs infrared, and reradiates it. In other words, we are now retaining more of the heat that was previously reflected or reradiated. The source of the CO2 is the burning of fossil fuels.

    The present denial is simply the artifact of the fact that we will have to make some major changes as the consequences, already began, overtake our society.

    Your link underscores why right wingers don't usually link. It's to a bunch of blogs. You might was well link to California Girl.
