The "Green" community is acting like it didn't happen, or the emails were somehow faked. Either way, the cats out of the bag and there are plenty of people upset. HOPEFULLY, the investigation being called for by Sen. Inhoffe will move soon...

There is nothing wrong with the use of catalytic converters on vehicles - and the SotA has advanced sufficiently that they're really not noticeable (except for all-*****-out performance applications.)

What I'd take would be a change in the current vehicular emissions regulations; such that the process would be streamlined, the visual inspection could be eliminated (since it's largely pointless anyhow,) modifications would be allowable, and they don't care how you meet the numbers, just so you meet them (and possibly a sliding discount on registration to accompany massively reduced numbers? Paying for the inspection is a surtax on vehicle registration - whether they call it that or not. Making it mandatory makes it a tax, even if it's not paid to the state.)

Way to bring up an old thread hahaha! Those articles were from back in November. Rebuttal statements were already made to combat the scientists words that were twisted. As far as I know they never caught the hackers. One of the professors, Phil Jones who was the director at a university in Europe was let go. The other professor was a U.S professor at Penn State and was not let go because neither did anything wrong. Hackers used simple words as "tricked" found in the data to misrepresent what they were actually talking about.

Consider this: One research topic (such as tree ring data) does not form the whole basis for Global Warming science. Thousands of other pieces of data area used to piece it all together. The scientists involved in the situation make up 1/10 of 1% of all the scientists actively doing climate research. All real published scientific articles go through rigorous panels of review boards which most of them have more then 1000 peer reviewers that majority has to approve to even make the research legit.

For more info on the topic research: Climategate
