    The scandal has prompted calls for Obama from global warming skeptics to skip this month's climate summit in Copenhagen -- instead, the White House is doubling down on its commitment

    The controversy swirling around the leaked e-mails of climate scientists apparently trying to downplay data and exclude dissenting opinions has led to calls for President Obama to skip this month's climate summit in Denmark until the e-mails can be investigated.

    Instead, the White House announced Friday that Obama was doubling down on his commitment to the summit's goals and moving his visit later in the month, hoping it will secure a "meaningful" agreement.

    The scandal being referred to as "Climate-gate" has rallied global warming skeptics, who say the threat is exaggerated -- let alone caused by humans. In some of the e-mails stolen by hackers and posted online, scientists at Britain's University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit appear to discuss hiding or deleting data that may contradicts global warming claims. Others discuss ways of keeping competing research out of peer-reviewed journals.

    Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is the most prominent figure to call on Obama to boycott the conference in Copenhagen in the wake of the e-mails' release.

    "The president's decision to attend the international climate conference in Copenhagen needs to be reconsidered in light of the unfolding Climategate scandal," she said in a posting on her Facebook page. "Boycotting Copenhagen while this scandal is thoroughly investigated would send a strong message that the United States government will not be a party to fraudulent scientific practices."

    But on Friday, Obama abruptly delayed his arrival at the summit until Dec. 18, the last scheduled day and considered a crucial period when more leaders will be in attendance. Obama is hoping to capitalize on steps by India and China and build a more meaningful political accord, the White House said.

    The U.S., India, and China all have specific proposals on the table for the first time, and world leaders are aiming for a deal that includes commitments on reducing emissions and financing for developing countries. They no longer expect to reach a legally binding agreement, as had long been the goal.

    The White House is shrugging off the Climate-gate e-mails.

    "I think there's no real scientific basis for the dispute of (global warming)," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said this week.

    And Obama's top science adviser, John Holdren, downplayed the e-mails Friday, telling Congress that the controversy involves a small group of scientists and how they have interpreted and shared global warming data.

    "It's important to understand that these kinds of controversies and even accusations of bias and improper manipulation are not all that uncommon in science, in all branches of science," he said at a congressional hearing.

    "The strength of science is that these kinds of controversies get sorted out over time as to who is wrong, who is right, and how much it matters, by the process of peer-review and continued critical scrutiny by the knowledgeable community of scientists," he said.

    Rep. Darrell Issa, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Commmittee, on Friday joined Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., in calling on the Obama administration and Congress to investigate the Climate-gate e-mails.

    "The very integrity of the report that the Obama administration has predicated much of its climate change policy upon has been called into question and it is unconscionable that this administration and Congress is willing to abdicate responsibility of uncovering the truth to the United Nations," the California Republican said in a written statement.

    "The administration's Climate-gate denials and refusal to acknowledge the need for a congressional investigation are a sad abdication of their responsibility to ensure that U.S. policies are not driven by corrupted science and data," he said.

    Some climate change analysts say the e-mails undermine the entire Denmark conference.

    "This raises questions about some of the very U.N. science that forms the basis of what's going to be discussed in Copenhagen," said Ben Lieberman, a senior policy analyst at the conservative Heritage Foundation and an expert on energy and environmental issues.

    "There's a lot to be concerned about here," he told Fox News. "At the very least the president shouldn't agree to anything in Copenhagen until we get to the bottom of Climate-gate and find out just how much there is to global warming that we can still trust."

    Despite a recent decline in global temperatures, the trend over the past 150 years has shown temperatures rising -- but the timing of the e-mail scandal is perfect for skeptics, said Heather Conley, senior fellow with the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    "It doesn't negate the fact that the global community does need to address its rate of emitting carbon and it needs to develop clean and greener technologies, but it does continue to throw this debate out there," she said.

    The president's climate czar, former Environmental Protection Agency administrator Carol Browner, said she's sticking with scientists who believe in man's impact on global warming.

    Cap and Tax. More big legislation that will be shoved down our throat, whether we want it or not. There is too much money to be made by those ready to take advantage of it.

    It's not about climate and never has been. Climate change caused by humans is the current lie used to provide an excuse to increase control--people control...

    Anybody who believes in "warming" should come spend a winter with us here in ND. Be sure to bring hat and gloves cause you're gonna need 'em for about 7 months out of the year. If anything, we've been getting colder, longer winters.

    But of course, some places will get colder, we're told, and some will get warmer, and some will get more rain, and some will be drier, and there will be more hurricanes unless, of course, there are fewer hurricanes, and some of the storms will be stronger unless they're weaker...and...on and on it goes. All BS.

    Has or does anyone remember the scandal with the book "Arming America: The Origins of a National Gun Culture" back in 2001?
    Believe it or not there are many similarities between that scandal and Climate Gate.
    In 2001 Professor Michael A. Bellesiles tried to re-write history by claiming that in the 1700's very few colonists had guns and backed it up with facts and data. The book was hailed on the Left as proof that the 2nd Amendment did not mean what is says.
    They were drunk with enthusiasm and power as they hailed the book and laid plans to further implement their plan of eliminating guns in America. Just like they are today about going green.
    Then the unthinkable happened. A guy named Clayton Cramer followed the footnotes of the author and found that the stated facts were not only deceptive but just plain wrong.
    But, since Mr Cramer was not part of Academia, his claims were dismissed.
    Finally, a few honest Academics surfaced and found that Cramer was right.
    The professor was questioned and told his peers that his notes were destroyed in a flood, when the sprinkler system in his office went off. Lost backup data in Climate Gate also.
    Now for the kicker. The anti gun crowd didn't care that the book was a lie, because in their mind, the cause was just.
    In other words, the ends justify the means. Why let a little thing like the truth get in the way of our noble crusade to eliminate evil guns and now evil carbon dioxide.
    I'm telling you that the people with the agendas are so used to the rest of us just sitting back and taking it that they have grown arrogant and downright belligerent to do what ever it takes to accomplish their goal.

  10. Why let the truth stand in your way? Aren't these the same people who believe in moral relativism? That right and wrong are different for different people? Now they'll just say that "truth" is different for different people.
