What could Issa, Sensenbrenner and Cuccinelli possibly think they might uncover now, a year after the [Climategate] e-mails were published?
The truth is that they don't expect to uncover anything. Instead, they want to continue a 20-year assault on climate research, questioning basic science and promoting doubt where there is none.
This is a tour-de-force of fighting back against politically-driven climate change denial.
But the attacks against the science must stop. They are not good-faith questioning of scientific research. They are anti-science.
I couldn't have said it better myself.
