REVEALED: There IS no "Climategate"!

The Associated Press has read and re-read the 1,047 e-mails that were stolen (not "leaked" or "released" but STOLEN!) from the servers of the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit.

Their findings? Lots of intellectual bitch-slapping, but no fraud or mis-truths.

To quote the article:

The scientists were so convinced by their own science and so driven by a cause "that unless you're with them, you're against them," said Mark Frankel, director of scientific freedom, responsibility and law at the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He also reviewed the communications.

Frankel saw "no evidence of falsification or fabrication of data, although concerns could be raised about some instances of very 'generous interpretations.'"

Some e-mails expressed doubts about the quality of individual temperature records or why models and data didn't quite match. Part of this is the normal give-and-take of research, but skeptics challenged how reliable certain data was.

Read it here:

So, there you have it folks. No smoking gun, no evidence of cooking the books, no fraud. Just of a bunch of scientists who let their egos get the best of them.

And, yes, the planet is getting warmer. And we're the cause of it, despite what the denialists are saying.

Let's see if Alex Jones and his ilk will backpeddle on this one...

So, just for a wrap-up on what was meant by "trick" and "hide the decline", please watch the following video (9 minutes and 54 seconds well spent):
