Global warming scandal

If the emails are not faked then this might be the end of the whole global warming industry.  Short version:

Some hackers broke in to the email servers of one of the most respected global warming research centers (University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit.)  The hackers published tons of emails between the scientists there.  The emails are still alleged, not confirmed.  It could be that the hackers wrote the emails.

The emails contain clear admissions of guilt on a number of topics:
* Being utterly unable to prove global warming.
* Fabricating and altering data to pretend to prove global warming.
* Using a number of unethical tactics to keep global warming skeptics from being published.

Wow.  Just wow.

The hackers deserve every bit of punishment that they get.  But, if true, the scientists deserve to be banished to Antarctica for the rest of their lives.
