Final nail in the coffin of "anthropogenic global warming"

Some of the very best commentary about the recent damning document leak from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit comes (rightly so) from James Delingpole, hailing from our ally and the homeland of our forefathers and ancestors, the United Kingdom:
Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming'?

If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) and released 61 megabytes of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)

When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realise just why the boffins at CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by 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.
In case you aren't fluent in the British vernacular, the term boffin is not, actually, an insult.  It refers to a scientific expert.  So the author gives them the benefit of the doubt right up until the moment that he skewers them on a spit for their overt skulduggery (another quite English word which I love!).

If your mind is open to facts and reality, read the whole thing.

If not, go ahead and put your signature on the scientifically baseless suicide pact of anthropogenic global warming.

Senator James Inhofe  (R-Oklahoma), in remarks to Barbara Boxer last week,  said it best:

Put a fork in it.  God willing, it's done.  Get a life.
