  • Climategate

    I recently ordered from Amazon.com a book titled CLIMATEGATE, because I wished to learn more about the famous CRU (Climate Research Unit) email controversy. However, as I have been reading the book, it has become clear to me that the author is using the term Climategate ― which had been applied to the CRU email controversy ― as a term including the entire AGW campaign; the subtitle of the book is A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the Global Warming Scam.

    One could just as easily claim that coal and oil companies could make billions by denying AGW. That's the problem with the whole issue--no one knows for sure how much humans are impacting the climate, so those with interests on either side will try extra hard to prove their points while ignoring contradictory ideas.

    Here is a counterexample http://scottvalentine.net/yahoo_site....302183828.pdf, claiming it's the climate change skeptics who are at fault.

      As I have said before, when a subject is resolved by political action, science is left behind. When one group of scientists refuses to allow opponents to approach openly, science has been left behind. Skeptics have been silenced in the public arena politically without scientific debate. Thus advocates of AGW are not doing science, but politics.
