Writing for the UK's Gaurdian news today, Fred Pearce has a very in-depth analysis of how the 'climategate' scandal is bogus and based on climate sceptics' lies. 
Pearce explains that,
"Almost all the media and political discussion about the hacked climate emails has been based on brief soundbites publicised by professional sceptics and their blogs. In many cases, these have been taken out of context and twisted to mean something they were never intended to."
Couldn't have said it better myself. The so-called 'climategate' has been hyped by an over-the-top right-wing press and an over-excited gang of bloggers who use everything other than actual scientific research to prove their point.
