Nice Fakegate* Observation
Today's Washington Post has a pretty good article on the continuing public fallout from the Fakegate scandal in which global warming activist Peter Gleick phished documents about its global warming counter-campaign from the free-market Heartland Institute. The in paper edition, the subhed reads:
Climate change researchers put their credibility on the line when frustration turns to politicization.
The article features a nice quotation characterizing the motivations behind Gleick's actions from climate catastrophe skeptic Princeton University physicist Will Happer who is chairman of the George C. Marshall Institute:
"If you are saving the planet, along with a good funding source, the ends apparently justify the means."
*Based on the claim that one of the more incendiary documents revealed by Gleick is an alleged cut-and-paste job.
