AP: Climate Science Is a Butterface, but AP Would Still Do Her

After an "exhaustive review," the AP declares there is no conspiracy surrounding the "stolen" climate alchemists' e-mails.

AP IMPACT: Science Not Faked, but Not Pretty

LONDON – E-mails stolen from climate scientists show they stonewalled skeptics and discussed hiding data — but the messages don't support claims that the science of global warming was faked, according to an exhaustive review by The Associated Press.

The 1,073 e-mails examined by the AP show that scientists harbored private doubts, however slight and fleeting, even as they told the world they were certain about climate change. However, the exchanges don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions.


The AP studied all the e-mails for context, with five reporters reading and rereading them — about 1 million words in total.

Hmmm. Perhaps if the AP had assigned the eleven investigative reporters that they assigned to Sarah Palin's book, they may have come to a different "exhaustive" conclusion.
