Happy Anny, ClimateGate!

This week brings us to the one-year mark since the global warming industry experienced ClimateGate. That release of emails and computer code and annotations was less a wooden stake through the heart of 'climate science' (there is apparently no 'blue dress moment', as I wrote at the time that would cause the US media to stop covering for the movement), but more like stepping on a rusty old nail whose impact will prove fatal in the end.

Ever adaptable, they are opting to proceed through the social sciences, analyizing and hopefully marginalizing us skeptics they just can't get away with, er, 'denying' anymore. This is probably the latest cover for their ritual ad hominem, which is all you've got when you can't make a persuasive substantive case. We'll see, as a proliferation of hints about other such overtures indicates a considered strategic move. But I write about their opening salvo, as reported in yesterday's NYT and focusing on yours truly, in the Daily Caller, here.
