In the words of a prominent climate skeptic,
So the 1079 emails and 72 documents seem indeed evidence of a scandal involving most of the most prominent scientists pushing the man-made warming theory - a scandal that is one of the greatest in modern science. I’ve been adding some of the most astonishing in updates below - emails suggesting conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more. If it is as it now seems, never again will “peer review” be used to shout down sceptics.
Pseudo-science such as Anthropogenic Global Warming demonstrates the political agenda of the elites as they attempt to impose new taxes on rich countries [who often comply only in a desultory fashion] while allowing massive polluters like China, whose brown coal is the single largest component of human global warming, to avoid the sanctions.
