Interesting. If this is true, then it probably qualifies as an inconvenient truth. A really, really inconvenient one. It'd be cool if any of my readers were actual climate scientists and could chime in on what's going on here, particularly w/r/t climategate. I don't know enough about the topic to comment knowledgeably. I do know that all the millenarian talk I've heard over the last couple years w/r/t anthropogenic global warming makes me deeply distrustful.* millenarian movements - and I'm starting to view a lot of the people espousing a need for really extreme change right now as millenarians - have a history of going very badly in the end.
* If it makes you feel any better, I don't know that the skeptics are right either. I'm a skeptic of both sides, if that makes sense - just that the skeptics (who urge, "Don't do anything") strike me as less threatening that the non-skeptics (who urge "Do what I say") at least in an ecumenical sense. I'm always distrustful of people who want more power, maybe because I know I couldn't be trusted with it myself.
