There’s No Conspiracy in the ‘Climategate’ Emails

New Scientist has an excellent article titled: Why there’s no sign of a climate conspiracy in hacked emails.

The leaking of emails and other documents from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, UK, has led to a media and political storm. The affair is being portrayed as a scandal that undermines the science behind climate change. It is no such thing, and here’s why.

Read the whole thing.

And they are absolutely right. Despite efforts by the climate change denial industry to promote this as the definitive proof that global warming is a “hoax” by evil scientists trying to get rich and dominate the world, the fact is that there is nothing in the emails that even comes close to this exaggerated, hysterical claim. It’s a phony scandal, based on stolen and cherry-picked emails, and pumped up like a Macy’s clown balloon by dishonest people.

Here’s another post on the subject at DeSmogBlog by Elizabeth May, who read every single email in the package of stolen emails, and came to the same conclusion I did: Elizabeth May: An Informed Look at the East Anglia Emails.

I didn’t quite have the patience of Elizabeth May, but I read a very large selection of the emails, and could not agree more. There’s absolutely no evidence of fraud, cover-ups, or conspiracies. None. Zip. Nada. Zilch.
