For those readers who do not know of the term Climategate, several weeks ago Internet surfers became aware of a couple of websites. The appearance of these sites was probably the fruit of either a diligent hacker or the guilt easing effort of an honest, science dedicated, whistle blower who became disgusted with the dishonest actions of their employer at the East Anglia Universitys Climate Research Unit (CRU), in Britain, who supplies global temperature data to the UN.
The material contained on the sites verified what many climatologists and meteorologists have been claiming for many years, i.e., there is no legitimate scientific data which indicates any unusual long term increase in the global temperature (Global Warming). Further, although carbon dioxide (CO2) greenhouse gas in the atmosphere could have a small effect on global temperatures, it is kept in check by the massive amounts of CO2 loving vegetation on land and in the oceans (like kelp), which convert the CO2 into our life sustaining oxygen and food.
