After the e-mail leak incident, conservatives are behaving as though they have won the climate change argument and the case is closed. Did they have even a 0.1 percent doubt before the e-mail leaks, that there may be something to global warming? The fact is that they did not, which is a proof enough that their beliefs are not based on scientific arguments but on the political mindset. The argument that thousands of scientists all around the world have made this thing up to get back at the developed countries (including scientists in these developed countries) is the most ridiculous thing that I have heard in years.
I would request The N&O to publish articles and papers from scientists both for and against this topic and also tell us what is the percentage of scientists and experts on both sides so that we can base our belief on valid research as opposed to the agendas and conspiracy theories.
