It could be the smoking gun that finally quashes the climate-change industry.
The Daily Telegraph of London reports that some of the world's top climate scientists engaged in nothing less than fraud to perpetuate the theology that man is responsible for supposedly cataclysmic global warming.
The purported evidence comes in the form of thousands of e-mails and other documents pilfered from the computer servers of the world-renowned University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit.
One e-mail "refers to a 'trick' being employed to massage temperature statistics to 'hide the decline' in temperatures." Which only solidifies the credibility of those who contend the "science" of global warming is anything but "settled" and is in every way "junk."
Couple this revelation with a new book by Christopher Booker that, claim by claim, debunks what the grim reapers of climate change have been peddling.
Nevertheless, the world's politicians are "proposing the most damaging measures ever put forward in history -- cuts in carbon emissions, if implemented, would plunge our world back to the Dark Ages -- to meet a crisis which it now seems was never going to happen anyway," writes Mr. Booker.
It's time to end this madness.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
