    Emails came out from a Director of the Climate Research should carry certain weight of truth. The intergrity of a person with a credibility being a director of the specific issue research institute means the truth.

    Big Oil likely hacked those email accounts sometime ago and simply waited until the upcoming international Climate Change forum to release them, go figure!

    The Democratic Party and President Obama needs to pass real environmental laws which prevent Big Oil and their Coal Toxic Belching Plants from continuing business as usual. Real laws with huge fines as meaningful teeth to all Coal Plants that continue to ignore the horrific and grievous damage they are doing to all American people and their children.

    Even Gregor Mendel , father of genetics, has been accused of selective reporting and skewing the data of his " sweet pea" experiments to get "too perfect" results. Yet nobody but a know-nothing moron would doubt he was right about the inheritance of traits today several hundred years later.

    The same is true about Darwin and his theory, and will be the case about the theories of man-made climate change despite this tempest in a tea cup. But don't expect the "death panel" crowd pass up any opportunity to ignore the facts and rationalize their head-long charge back to the 18th century.
