When Scientist Stop Being Scientific

Hundreds of private emails and documents allegedly exchanged between some of the world's leading climate scientists during the past 13 years have been stolen by hackers and leaked online, it emerged today.

The computer files were apparently accessed earlier this week from servers at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit, a world-renowned centre focused on the study of natural and anthropogenic climate change.

Climate change sceptics who have studied the emails allege they provide "smoking gun" evidence that some of the climatologists colluded in manipulating data to support the widely held view that climate change is real, and is being largely caused by the actions of mankind.

You can read the rest here.

Some questions:
-Do you think it was okay to steal these emails if they result in the truth being exposed?
-Do you think "global warming" is caused by humans or a natural cycle of the earth/sun?
-Does this information cause you to rethink your current view?
-Are all scientists biased? If so, can anything be trusted in the realm of science?
