The Vast Right Wing blogosphere is gleefully denouncing... "Climategate," printing excerpts of emails hacked from The University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit, which is apparently the command center of the Global Warming Hoax Conspiracy. Even Freakonomics co-author Stephen Dubner has jumped on the conspiracy bandwagon, appearing on Fox "News" to promote Superfreakonomics and give aid and comfort to talking head David Asman, who compared Stalin and Hitler's practices to those of the scientists who wrote the emails. On the other hand, you can go to Discovery News and read that climate change is exceeding scientists' worst predictions.

So if global warming is a hoax,the conspiracy to promote it is unprecedented. Not only are Al Gore, John McCain, Newt Gingrich, mainstream media, and most universities in on it, so too are the melting glaciers, coral reefs, marine life, and thermometers. This thing is HUGE.
