Climate Change Email Controversy

The Guardian newspaper is inviting contributions/comments on its account of the climate change email controversy.

Charlie Thorpe has just called attention to a fascinating article in The Guardian, the well-known British newspaper. The article is a great example of investigative reporting into a scientific subject of urgent social and political concern. It addresses the hacked email exchanges between climate scientists at Penn State and East Anglia, their subsequent, selective appropriation and distortion by the likes of Sarah Palin and Sen. James Inhofe and the controversy's wider ripple-effects. In what it describes as an "experiment", the newspaper now invites direct, public comment.
