The media seems to be lagging somewhat behind on the “Climategate” story. Although the internet is full of information, both broadcast and print media appear to be focusing more on either health care reform and/or the upcoming decision by the POTUS with respect to troop deployment and strategy in Afghanistan.
With the “Cap and Trade” bill still looming in the Senate, I believe that this story deserves much more exposure. The Wall Street Journal is one news outlet that continues to carry the “Climategate” story forward. If this house-of-cards is to utterly collapse, it will take Congressional investigations like the ones that Rep. Issa and Sen. Inhofe have announced, and these will also need continued coverage by the media. Should you doubt this, look at the recent subdued responses to the outrageous behavior of ACORN. Once the media spotlight was turned elsewhere, we have been minimally updated about its final disposition.
Indeed, it would be beyond imagining if the risks taken by those working to expose both the IPCC and their adherents, as well as ACORN were somehow swept into a dark corner, only to re-emerge to our future destruction.
BTW, for the more technically inclined Sparrows out there, Watts Up With That, has a great analysis of the code that appears in the CRU hacked files. To me, this code is the best authentication of the files, as well as the best explanation of what CRU has been up to. More on the code and what it could mean for the future of GW-driven carbon cap and trade is here. Commentary on the time-line of the hack and analysis of file content is here. Keep reading. Keep this issue alive!
