Babs Boxer Calls For ClimateGate Criminal Investigation

But, if you think she wants to go after the folks who have pushed junk science on the world, um, no

Leaked e-mails allegedly undermining climate change science should be treated as a criminal matter, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Wednesday afternoon.

Boxer, the top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said that the recently released e-mails, showing scientists allegedly overstating the case for climate change, should be treated as a crime.

“You call it ‘Climategate’; I call it ‘E-mail-theft-gate,'” she said during a committee meeting. “Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I’m looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public.”

As Ace has been putting it for a long time, when a leak helps the democrats, it is about getting the information released. Venture back to all the national security leaks during the Bush admin. Venture back to the hacking of the the Palin’s email accounts. No complaints from the Dems then, eh? But, if the leak hurts the Democrats, well, it must be criminal, and any belief in whistle-blowing goes right out the door.

Are we facing global warming? Sure, if you want to use the word to describe what has been mostly, or solely, a natural process, which has been going on for the life of the Earth, and the current warming period has been going on since the end of a cooling period. If you want to use the term to describe it be all Mankind’s fault, then, no, not as such. If you do believe it is Mankind’s fault, well, you have drunk so deeply at the kool aid bar that nothing will help you.
