Climate change cover-up? You better believe it

jamie writes "Was Sen. James Inhofe right when he declared 2009 the year of the climate contrarian? A slew of emails stolen from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit highlight definite character flaws among some climate scientists, [but] sadly for the potential fate of human civilization, rumors of the demise of climate change have been much exaggerated. ...the opposition here is not grounded in any robust scientific theory or alternative hypotheses (all of those, in their time, have been shot down and nothing new has been offered in years)... There is, in fact, a climate conspiracy. It just happens to be one launched by the fossil fuel industry to obscure the truth about climate change and delay any action."

New Theory Bullshit (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#30263018)

This obsession with an alternative theory is crap. Alternative to what? The fact the gw is has been awol for the past ten years? Or the fact that they "fudged the numbers"?

Here's my theory: It get warmer, it gets colder...repeat. My theory is irrefutable.
