An article by environmentalist journalist Fred Pearce about the "public relations disaster" that is Climategate is getting a lot of attention for Yale Environment 360, as it should.
Of all the faux-na and flora-children flitting through Copenhagen, Lord Christopher Monckton found the one activist -- from Greenpeace -- who was glad to hear the news that there's been no global warming for 15 years.
The stifling of scientific dissent on the issue of global warming is not limited to the Climategate story.
USA Today's house editorial today bemoans the fact that Climategate "gives ammunitiion to the skeptics," but concludes that "the overwhelming scientific consensus remains that the Earth is warming, largely because of human activity, with potentially calamitous consequences involving melting ice caps, rising sea levels and shifting agricultural patterns."

Pennsylvania State University's Climategate guy, hockey stick creator Michael Mann, has already come under scrutiny from the school over suspicions that he manipulated data to fit his global warming alarmism faith.
