You won't find two more wrong statements in an op-ed anywhere in 2009:
This [email] scandal obviously calls into question the proposals being pushed in Copenhagen. I've always believed that policy should be based on sound science, not politics.The tragedy of the CRU hack is not that opportunistic politicians will seek to exploit it for political gain -- that is, after all, what politicians do. The tragedy is that a large part of the scientific community will respond to such political exploitation in kind, without dealing with the important issues raised by the emails, further exacerbating the pathological politicization of climate science. It is a downward spiral that Sarah Palin is happy to help along.
