"If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka Hadley CRU) and released 61 megabites of confidential files onto the internet. (Hat tip: Watts Up With That)

When you read some of those files – including 1079 emails and 72 documents – you realize just why the boffins at Hadley CRU might have preferred to keep them confidential. As Andrew Bolt puts it, this scandal could well be “the greatest in modern science”. These alleged emails – supposedly exchanged by some of the most prominent scientists pushing AGW theory – suggest:

Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organized resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more."

Yeah this got out not too long ago. Should change things more regarding scientific-public relationships for sure. As for scientific fact, I'm not too surprised, but there will still be a strong global warming movement, even if this does land them a blow.
Life is underrated.

I suppose what I'm asking is: Is Anthropogenic Global Warming different than the general theory of global warming, or is this link intended to be evidence that global warming doesn't exist?

I think Antropogenic Global Warming is the theory that humans are directly, or for the majority, the cause of global warming.

Finally! Now I can stop hearing about this theory being talked about as if it's fact.

I wonder if this will stop congress from spending more money on climate change policy. Heh, who am I kidding?

I don't think you understand what a theory is in a scientific context

and for the record it won't change a thing to the science of climate change

James Delingpole apparently

He calls himself ''a writer, journalist and broadcaster who is right about everything. He is the author of numerous fantastically entertaining books including Welcome To Obamaland: I've Seen Your Future And It Doesn't Work, How To Be Right, and the Coward series of WWII adventure novels.''

Sounds so legit...
