Both the New York Times and Washington Post have pieces today about years of email messages among prominent climate scientists hacked from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the U.K.
Climate skeptics have pounced on the messages, alleging they reveal efforts to bury inconvenient truths about the case for human-induced global warming.
But that’s rubbish, say climate scientists who argue that burning fossil fuels are causing dangerous warming -- the dominant view among experts. They say the messages are being taken, willfully, out of context.
The Financial Times, meanwhile, has short profiles of 10 top climate scientists and their current thinking about sea levels, storms, temperature and other areas.
