Really? “Climategate” again?

Be prepared to start hearing about the conspiracy among climate scientists to lie to the public again. Another batch of out-of-context email snippets from the University of East Anglia has been posted on the internet. Keep in mind that last time this happened, all the scientists involved were cleared of any dishonesty or wrongdoing by some NINE independent investigations.

This is again intended to stall international climate talks. That’s serious.

While FoxNews didn’t seem to think the Berkeley confirmation of our temperature records (performed by skeptics with funding from the Koch brothers!) was newsworthy, it will almost certainly be all over this “story” for the next couple months.

Update: See Bad Astronomy for details.

Another update: As usual, RealClimate is the place to go. They’ll be addressing questions about the emails in the comments.
