Negative label 'skeptic' used by media to fight Climategate

It's interesting how the words "skeptic", "naysayer", and "denier" are still bantered around in the liberal press like curse words--negative labels, even after many of the charges of skeptics have now, finally--thanks to the hacker or whistleblower involved, been vindicated and verified.

The press DOES NOT want to admit they've been duped; they DO NOT want to admit that skeptics ARE RIGHT. Same with all the other climate accomplices involved...they know this has killed their boondoggle and, likely, their careers too!

Hence the reason for all the fiery intransigence and obstinacy coming from the global warming faithful the world over.

The malice, mischief and Machiavellian manoeuvrings revealed in the illegally hacked megabytes of emails from the University of East Anglia’s prestigious Climate Research Unit, for example, offers a useful paradigm of contemporary scientific conflict. Science may be objective; scientists emphatically are not. This episode illustrates what too many universities, professional societies, and research funders have irresponsibly allowed their scientists to become. Shame on them all.


Dubbed “climate-gate” by global warming sceptics, the most outrageous East Anglia email excerpts appear to suggest respected scientists misleadingly manipulated data and suppressed legitimate argument in peer-reviewed journals.
