The single greatest advance in punitive liberalism

Mark Steyn on documents leaked from East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit and the greatest scientific scandal of our times. Old news to the sort of people who read this blog but well worth it for the tag line.

Phil Jones and Michael Mann are two of the most influential figures in the whole “climate change” racket. What these documents reveal is the greatest scientific scandal of our times—and a tragedy. It’s not just their graphs but their battle lines that are drawn all wrong. Science is never “settled,” and certainly not on the basis of predictive models. And any scientist who says it is is no longer a scientist. And the dismissal of “skeptics” throughout the Jones/Mann correspondence is most revealing: a real scientist is always a skeptic.
