Global warming skeptics seize emails that cast doubt on climate change

Global warming skeptics were quick to pillage through emails after hackers broke into the server of a prominent British university that researches climate change.

The hackers were successful in obtaining emails that allegedly prove global warming is overstated and human influence on the environment is overstated.

Documents within the hacked email include discussion among researchers whether current trends could be disputed by skeptics and how to best combat those arguments.

Drafts of the technical documents and photos were discovered that could spark major debates in the world of science and administrations that are promoting economic policy based on the results of that scientific theory. For those who remain leery about whether the globe is actually warming or cooling, these documents could shed negative light within the scientific community.

According to a climatologist who faults the current global-warming hysteria, Patrick Michaels says, “This is not a smoking gun; this is a mushroom cloud.”

However, it is revealed that the bulk of the emails were simply about how best to describe the cooling trend currently taking place and how it contradicts what researchers predicted in the past.

The skeptic web sites pointed to one line that leads them to believe the science behind global warming is a hoax, “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t,” wrote Dr. Kevin Trenberth a climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research in a report from Fox News.

It was confirmed by officials at University of East Anglia that their server had been hacked, but they refused to authenticate material showing up on the Internet throughout the world.

The Telegraph.co.uk printed more contemptuous emails that suggest the researchers manipulated evidence and had private doubts about the reality of global warming.

One thing is certain there is a lot of disagreement between countries regarding climate change and as the Al Gore’s of the world look to Copenhagen in December to lament world policy and set stringent guidelines for companies to follow, global-warming alarmist may have to wait for science to actually catch-up to their philosophy.
