I suggest that people pay no attention to the Scott Lamortes of this world, and instead start reading the emails themselves, and especially the code and comments in the harry_read_me file. Comments such as "fudge factor" next to code are self explanatory.
Then start reading the extensive analysis of them which is being done on sites such as wattsupwiththat.com and climate audit.com. Also see the UK Telegraph James Delingpole articles. Get to these sites and you will see that a lot of very bright analytical people have demolished the code which has been used in a bad way.
The Russians have disputed the data for Siberia, there is doubt about New Zealand and Australian temperatures. There is even a paper predating global warming hysteria which showed how the thermometers used are unreliable.
Then go to a site such as http://seekingalpha.com/article/175641-climategate-revolt-of-the-physicists to see what real scientists are researching with regard to the effects of cosmic rays on cloud formation, the effect of the solar wind, and the CLOUD project at CERN in Europe.
The extensive work done by physicists and mathematicians show up the shoddy work done by the "hockey team".
As has been shown by recent events, cold is the killer, not heat. Do readers know that there is an unusually low number of sunspots in cycle 24? The last mini ice age a few hundred years ago correlated with low sunspot activity.
Those scientists including the Russians who are watching this are seriously worried about a possible very cold downturn.
Does it not astound that the record breaking snow falls and low temperatures in the US and elsewhere, are being ignored by the people obsessed with their global warming faith?
