Thousands of emails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia have been hacked. The ‘skeptic/denialist blogosphere is exultant, thinking they’ve found a smoking gun of the multigenerational conspiracy of grant-hungry scientists in collusion with capitalists, poltiicans, the illuminati and… oh, MCFly despairs. Homo sapiens??

Reuters had a good cartoon (see above)
