One can almost feel the vibration of the wheels spinning as climate research laboratories, universities, NGOs, bureaucrats, the liberal media and even the White House push into overdrive on damage control over the dirty little secrets revealed by the leaked emails from the University of East Anglia, Climate Research Unit. We can be sure that no rock will go unturned to discredit skepticism about man-made global warming theory and find plausible cause for Saint Obama to still save us from ourselves. But if indisputable evidence of scientists conspiring to cook science is enough to put the kibosh once and for all on a dubious, untestable theory based mostly on computer models, we have somewhere in our midst a new hero, namely the man or woman who purloined the emails from the computers of the global-warming Tribunal
Even the Nobel committee charged with deciding the yearly Peace Prize should be able to appreciate the great service performed on behalf of humanity by our intrepid hacker. One immediate benefit will be the millions of tons of emissions saved each year by abrogating the requirement to fly tens of thousands of global warming groupies to hundreds of climate change conferences. Preliminary computer models indicate a cooling effect equivalent to at least the 5,000 cases of ice cold beer consumed at any LSU football game. Then, of course, there is money. Oh boy, money by the super oil tanker full, freed up from the cancellation of research grants and salaries of climate-change scientists. Enough money to buy a chicken for every African displaced by a civil war, help Hugo Chavez procure more votes and pay for advanced medical care for Fidel Castro. Last but not least, as the global warming debate is finally put to rest, we will all have more time to identify, contemplate and propose solutions to the next apocalypse requiring UN oversight and massive amounts of funding.
All that remains is for our cyber savant to identify him or her self. If he or she is reading this, come now, give it up. Peace is a cause worth serving.
