Chicken Littles Still Thrive

So last week we all read about the scandal at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit. There a hacker revealed confidential emails exposing attempts by global warming apostles to manipulate embarrassing info that countered their warming claims. These emails have been called "the nail in the coffin" of global warming hysteria.

I wish that were true.

Check out the sites where the Chicken Littles still thrive. About the hacked emails, The Huffington Post says "this criminal activity has created fodder for right-wing groups to promote their own agenda that global warming is not real." And, after admitting he was "deeply shaken" by the emails, a Guardian columnist adds that "To bury man-made climate change, a far wider conspiracy would have to be revealed."


For fun: imagine if these leaked emails weren't about global warming, but Gitmo. Or Dick Cheney. Or Sarah Palin's private life. How fast would Time, Newsweek, and an intensely sweaty Andrew Sullivan be all over them - calling these emails corruption of the highest order?

But they can't do this here. Because the lie is the lie that the media believed in. It's their Watergate - so it's no wonder there's no "Woodward and Bernstein" to bring it down.

So, where does this leave Al Gore? He's got his hands all over this leafy Ponzi scheme, and he stands to make buttloads of money off propagated fear. Something tells me he won't be discussing these emails in Copenhagen. Because as long as the sky keeps falling, his bank account keeps rising.
