CLIMATEGATE! Over a thousand sensitive emails and many important data files from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia in the UK were made available on the internet. The emails show that the CRU scientists manipulated data to support the global warming agenda of the IPCC. The CRU provides paleo-climate data and a temperature index used by the IPCC and climate scientists.
*** Recent analysis suggests the files were leaked, not hacked. See here.***
The Telegraph UK reports that the emails from some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory suggest:
"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."
The climate establishment set up a number of inquiries to investigate the consequences of the email scandal. Dr. Ross McKitrick produced an analysis of the five climategate inquiries here.
Please consider signing this petition which asks Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to establish a Royal Commission to determine the cause and extent of global warming, here.

Climategate has spun a series of related scandals, many related to false claims in the IPCC's 2007 Fourth Assessment Report.
