Environmentalists in Denial: Climategate

More of the same. Lefties are ignoring what can't be ignored, but that won't stop them from trying. I take issue with the chap below, however. He says that climate change deniers have made wild claims like global warming is over. Ha! I make the claim that global warming NEVER OCCURRED. He doesn't know his deniers very well.

Climate sceptics have lied, obscured and cheated for years. That's why we climate rationalists must uphold the highest standards of science.

I have seldom felt so alone. Confronted with crisis, most of the environmentalists I know have gone into denial. The emails hacked from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia, they say, are a storm in a tea cup, no big deal, exaggerated out of all recognition. It is true that climate change deniers have made wild claims which the material can't possibly support (the end of global warming, the death of climate science). But it is also true that the emails are very damaging.
