…and they get it just right. It begins,
Climategate, both 1 and 2, are textbook cases of gross lapses in professional ethics and scientific malfeasance.
Author H. Sterling Burnett goes on to say,
before he goes on to examine a number of the Climategate emails themselves, he wraps up his piece with,
To be clear, these e-mails do not disprove that humans are causing potentially catastrophic global warming. Whether or not humans are or are not, in fact, causing or contributing to dangerous climate change, the only thing clear that emerges from the Climategate e-mails is that the scientists claiming that “the science is settled” and that there is “consensus” among scientists that humankind are acting as planet killers, can’t be trusted, nor can their research be pointed to as solid proof of anthropogenic global warming.
Couldn’t have said it better myself. Please read the whole thing.
As I have said numerous times on this blog, I am appalled at the excuses, rationalizations, and the “nothing to see here, move along” attitude of mainstream science toward Climategate. It is corruption of science at its worst.
