On the eve of next weeks Copenhagen climate summit, the evidence couldnt be more embarrassing for proponents of global warming. Leaked e-mails from the University of East Anglias Hadley Climate Research Unit (CRU), one of the worlds leading climate change research centres, indicate that prominent scientists cooked the books to make the case for man-made global warming.
Perhaps the scientists were just joking in some of the e-mails, as they now claim, and that they used poorly chosen words. If the East Anglia scientists were serious about everything in those e-mails, its a bombshell.
Misconduct at an institute as respected and influential as Hadley including the manipulation and deletion of data and deliberate attempts to suppress peer-reviewed papers skeptical of global warming, as the e-mailsindicate would undermine the very basis of an issue that is driving much of the world agenda. Global warming, endorsed by the national science academies of every major industrialized nation, would not only be flawed science, it would be the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the world.
