Regardless of where you stand on the topic of global warming, one cannot deny how devastating the Climategate controversy could be for those adamant supporters if this news proves true.  Apparently some e-mails were leaked/hacked into among a few of the higher ups who research and promote the theory of man-made global warming.  These e-mails  implicate said scientists with falsifying grandiose data about the effects of man on expediting the global warming process.

I’ve been hard-pressed to find any information about this on the World Wide Web and no legitimate websites that have posted any of the e-mails in their entirety.  Most of the websites, in fact, only speak of the scientists implicated and summarize some of these mysterious (and probably illegally obtained, if at all) e-mails.  I assumed this would be a great finger pointing moment for those opposed to the theory of man-made global warming.  Instead of hearing this on the news or radio, however, I first caught a whiff of this story on The Drudge Report, but I haven’t seen any major websites (CNN, Yahoo!, cbs, etc.) post any information in regards to it, which seems a tad fishy to me.  So, if anyone is able to find anymore relevant information pertaining to this scandal, please, feel free to post the links below.

I’d say fabricating data in regards to a billion or trillion dollar industry worldwide is probably cause for suspicion, so keep your ears to the ground, folks.
