Climategate: Here Comes Courage! (Is climate catastrophism losing its ‘politically correct’ grip?)
by Robert Bradley Jr
The times are changing in the wake of Climategate. And more is to come as the polluted science embedded in the email exchanges gets reviewed by talented amateurs and pros alike on the blogosphere (see Climate Audit, Roger Pielke Jr., and WattsUpWithThat, in particular).
