I had thought that we might see a splash and then the climate story would die out. Instead, the story continues to build. "if they have lost Megan McArdle, they are in big trouble". Megan has been a true believer. She is a liberal who likes to think of herself as a libertarian. I have been reading her work for about 4 years.
If anyone is interested, the emails and documents from the University of East Anglia were posted to a news group. This was one of the two hot stories of yesterday. The other being Andrew Beitbart's warning to Eric Holder and Obama that if Holder did not start an investigation of ACORN, Breitbart would hold onto the other videos (about more than just ACORN) and release them right before the election next year. The emails and documents from the University of East Anglia Climate Research Center were apparently obtained by Russian hackers ("Black Hats") and were posted on an FTP server for a short time yesterday. They showed up in other places later. In my case, I found them by searching for "Climate" with NewsRover. You can also find them with BinSearch by searching in the most popular groups using the search term "Climate".
