Climategate: Which part of 'over' don't these people understand?

“When we can’t actually remove the source of our fear, we tend to adapt psychologically by adopting a range of defence mechanisms,” explains Tom Crompton, “change strategist” for the WWF.
In other words not believing in ManBearPig is psychopathology rather than rationalism.
Meanwhile at Telegraph blogs, the site that popularised the word Climategate – 25 million Google hits so far – there are those who just can’t see what the fuss is about. Hey, Climategate is just some wacko distraction talked up some guy who didn’t even read Zoology like George Monbiot.
(Don’t forget I’m debating Monbiot tonight 6.30 in London. Please come and give your support. I’ll be so much better if I’m playing to a friendly crowd – here are the details)
So here, very, very simply, is a quick idiot’s guide to why Climategate does matter.
