It is the unabashed realm of the conservative media to engage in hyperbole about issues that effect things they care about.   The whole climategate nonsense is a perfect example of what happens when commentators who, being short on brain but long on wind, get a hold of a story and spin it to meet their own particular agenda.

The hacked emails from CRU seems to be the holy tinfoil jesus for climate change denialists, finally proving that it was all a lie and a hoax.  Keep in mind these are some of the people that also believe that a rapture is coming and need to prepare for the coming of their lord and high-douchbag –  jebus himself.

Predictably, when actual rational people look into things the picture is much different.  The data in question does not contradict the last 30 years of evidence based climatological research.  There is no grand conspiracy, no deliberate hoax; just much partisan grandiloquent bloviatation from ignorant people.

Thunderfoot does his usual impeccable job of describing the situation and illustrating how thick the tinfoil is for some people.  Enjoy the video.

Update: More information on the ‘debate’ here and here.

Second Update June 2010 – The media admits it was wrong and prints a retraction.
