Chad, where are you getting you're news that you've completely missed all of the follow up information about "Climategate"? Unfortunately the eventual exoneration of those involved didn't get very much coverage.Read up on it if you're curious.
Eight committees investigated the allegations and published reports, finding no evidence of fraud or scientific misconduct.
Who's ignoring facts?
Do you honestly believe you know much about climate change science? I'll be the first to admit that I don't, and probably never will consider myself adept at understanding the staggering amount of data.
You say to follow the money. I've done it. The five largest companies on earth by revenue: Walmart, Exxon, Shell, BP, Sinopec (China Petroleum). Those 4 oil companies brought in $1.3 trillion in 2010. You really think scientists have more sway than these guys? Do you realize how our government operates these days? Scientists are the David in this situation.
