This is a huge blow to science. Regardless of what one thinks about the whole global warming debate making stuff up, like these scientists did, is wrong. Now, people have every right to question any data climate scientists put forward. Instead of reasonable, rational scientists the environmental field is overrun with people like Robert Christopherson.
I take this opportunity to once again call for rational discussions on the environment without the crazies on either side. Those who deny carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and the Al Gores must go.
