The scientific community is buzzing over thousands of emails and documents -- posted on the Internet last week after being hacked from a prominent climate-change research center -- that some say raise ethical questions about a group of scientists who contend humans are responsible for global warming.
The correspondence between dozens of climate-change researchers, including many in the U.S., illustrates bitter feelings among those who believe human activities cause global warming toward rivals who argue that the link between humans and climate change remains uncertain.
In all, more than 1,000 emails and more than 2,000 other documents were stolen Thursday from the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in the U.K. The identity of the hackers isn't certain, but the files were posted on a Russian file-sharing server late Thursday, and university officials confirmed over the weekend that their computer had been attacked and said the documents appeared to be genuine.
Comment: The Senate is poised to pass cap and trade legislation and now we learn about the emerging scandal called Climategate, yet where is our US Senate amidst this debate? Well in the back pocket of these criminals, the special interests groups that are pushing this economic and social tyranny upon us, not to mention the savage attack against our sovereignty.
Thank goodness this news has been revealed, but each one of us should be mad as hell that our politicians in US Senate have been funding and colluding with this madness.
If the states had their rightful place within the federal government it is highly doubtful this buffoonery would have ever gained any traction here on Liberty's soil. It's time to repeal the 17th Amendment. We need to return to the structure the founders created.
