Climategate Overview:

Those of us keeping abreast of the climate literature have known for quite some time that the explanation for Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) relating to climate change, was far from the entire story, with almost all dissenting opinion having been actively suppressed. But the full extent of the problem was not made clear until November 19, 2009, when approximately 160 megabytes of data files and email correspondence was leaked from Britain's government-funded University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU).

Soon after the release of the CRU files, this event came to be known as Climategate. However, none of this came as a real shock to a group of skeptical scientists who had been questioning the AGW results for some time, but had been effectively barred from publishing their analyses in standard scientific journals and media outlets. In this way, the general public had been manipulated through the presentation of an unchallenged propagandist viewpoint, into supporting drastic government interventionist policies in order to stave off the supposed pending crisis to all of humanity.
