Ramblings about what I encounter within the realm of the geosciences, as well as the occasional rant about nonsense.

'Febrile Nitwits' Would be a Good Band Name

You know all the dust that is being raised about the hacked emails regarding climate change? Well here is a nice succinct Youtube video about all that. Specifically, how a certain group of individuals (denialists) are using some (by which I mean 2) emails to claim climate change is a conspiracy. So without further ado, here is a repost of part 6 of potholer54's climate change series: "Those Hacked E-mails"

My only beef with this, is the use of the term 'skeptic' to describe 'denialists' (around 9:38). Skeptics aren't denialists. Skeptics will accept conclusions supported by sufficient evidence, denialists won't (the evidence is part of the conspiracy after all). Other than that little detail, it is a good summation of this non-story.
