The Anthropocentric Global Warming Denialist Community is collectively creaming in its collective jeans over the release of zillions of emails that definitively prove that the whole global warming conspiracy thing was made up. Real Climate has the story:
There is no evidence of any worldwide conspiracy, no mention of George Soros nefariously funding climate research, no grand plan to ‘get rid of the MWP’, no admission that global warming is a hoax, no evidence of the falsifying of data, and no ‘marching orders’ from our socialist/communist/vegetarian overlords. The truly paranoid will put this down to the hackers also being in on the plot though.
Yeah, right, sure.
I’d like to write more about this but I’m going to be spending much of the weekend outside in this unseasonably warm weather we are having. In part, I’ll be in the garage getting the winter fishing equipment ready to put on eBay Canada … these ice fishing rigs are of little use in the greater Twin Cities are ever since the lakes stopped freezing over enough to put a shack on. At least I don’t have to bother rebursishing the car battery, flushing the radiator fluid and checking the circuitry on the engine block warmer any more, so that saves time for our trip to the Gulf Coast … oh, no wait, the place we usually go was wiped out by a hurricane …
