"Saudi Arabia's lead climate negotiator has said the e-mail row will have a "huge impact" on next week's UN climate summit in Copenhagen.
Mohammad Al-Sabban told BBC News that he expects it to derail the single biggest objective of the summit - to agree limitations on greenhouse gas emissions.
"It appears from the details of the scandal that there is no relationship whatsoever between human activities and climate change," he told BBC News."
A friend of my brother had picked up a spunk at the pub and they've gone back to his place. They are both pissed as mutes and they're doing it doggy style when he finds suddenly that he is vomitting over her back. To drunk to care for the social niceties that such a situation demands he continues fucking , comes and then both parties fall onto the mattress in drunken sleep. Morning arrives and he must peel the sheet off himself before he can look around. The woman is gone. But she has left a little gift - a sizable turd lies on the pillow.
This fluff around global warming fits perfectly with the decription of science as an social activity, in which power groups struggle to claim the legitimacy of being the holders of "the recognised scientific position".
And of course supporters of marginalised position/beliefs frequently do not ever convert to the "new truth" but remain critics till they die. So arguments are frequently declared "over" but remain alive in the background. Occassionally of course the people in the background end up as the new power group and then declare "the argument is over".
And the influence of monetary forces is very clear in AGW - hence my initial quoting of the Saudi guy - but frequently found in other scientific personal and group interactions.
And to the forming of camps that contain former emenemies - who would have suspected DWT and Drew would be lining up with a lacky whose job it is to protect the interests of the Saudi royal family the progenitors of 9/11?
I was hoping that the rejectors would quote the funding figures for AGW researchers and that it would be clear how much money is behind the pro-AGW people. But they seem to have missed the lesson of DWT's posts.
And of course there is more about knowing who you are in bed with .... And the opportunity to tell a disgusting, apparently true, morality tale. And linking to one of Clint's 5 best movie scenes.
If this isn't enough for you I think you are jaded. Go start a big fire so we can see the sea levels rise sooner.
