Why do you deniers always have to do these roundabout measures to try disprove climate change? Can't you just look at the data itself and see if it is flawed? Nah, it's easier to create strawmans out of other sciences to prove your point...
Six official investigations have cleared scientists of accusations of wrongdoing.
A three-part Penn State University cleared scientist Michael Mann of wrongdoing.
Two reviews commissioned by the University of East Anglia"supported the honesty and integrity of scientists in the Climatic Research Unit."
A UK Parliament report concluded that the emails have no bearing on our understanding of climate science and that claims against UEA scientists are misleading.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Inspector General's office concluded there was no evidence of wrongdoing on behalf of their employees.
The National Science Foundation's Inspector General's office concluded, "Lacking any direct evidence of research misconduct...we are closing this investigation with no further action."
Other agencies and media outlets have investigated the substance of the emails.
The Environmental Protection Agency, in response to petitions against action to curb heat-trapping emissions, dismissed attacks on the science rooted in the stolen emails.
Factcheck.org debunked claims that the emails put the conclusions of climate science into question.
Politifact.com rated claims that the emails falsify climate science as "false."
An Associated Press review of the emails found that they "don't undercut the vast body of evidence showing the world is warming because of man-made greenhouse gas emissions."
There is so much information out there from the CRU programmers own code/readme's, to the exchanges between Phil Jones and his team talking about deleting/manipulating/withholding information that it doesn't take someone with more than a 6th grade level of education to understand what is going on.
Even if we give them the benefit of the doubt on everything else, the fact that they even talk about withholding information as scientists is just morally wrong.
I was under the impression that the warming of the climate today was "unprecedented".
the eras when earth has been the warmest the temperature is not even close to what we have today

No one says that climate change is SOLELY caused by man. Scientists freely acknowledge that natural causes go into the climate. They are just more concerned with the ADDITIONAL causes that we are supplying to the climate that is causing it to behave outside of its normal cycle.
