Why it matters.
Climategate was like a megaphone to the world announcing what had been known on the blogs for years. The cat is out of the bag and there is no way to get it back! This is what the AGW fraud looks like:
1. Flawed collection and “adjusting” of data.
2. Minimizing the urban heat island effect.
3. Persistent but futile attempts to make a hockey stick out of the data.
This says nothing about the fundamental science of the earth’s sensitivity to incoming radiation which is still being widely debated.
