WASHINGTON (AP) – Top White House science officials defended the validity of global warming research against repeated Republican attacks Wednesday that cited leaked e-mails from some climate researchers.
The e-mails from a British university’s climate center were obtained by computer hackers and released last month. Climate change skeptics contend the messages reveal that researchers manipulated and suppressed data and stifled dissent.
At a Capitol Hill hearing, the president’s science adviser and the chief of the agency in charge of climate research said the e-mails did nothing to undermine scientific consensus on climate change. Some Republicans said they showed a “culture of corruption” among scientists.
Next, “Top White House officials” will tell us is that there is concensus, that the debate is now over, that nationalized health care will improve our health and cost less too
…. and that Tiger Woods is a decent family man who would never cheat on his wife…
These nitwits are so incredibly obtuse it is stunning beyond belief.
