In Hot Water

While I was away this weekend, paying scant attention to the news, a serious brouhaha seems to have erupted in the global-warming community. Apparently a hacker got hold of, and made public, emails and internal documents from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia — a major center for AGW study — and they appear to contain evidence of grave improprieties involving the rigging and politicization of research and publication. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

Blogger Dennis Mangan has already picked up the story (his post’s title may somewhat overstate the case, though again it may not); have a look here.
