Pre-conference e-mail-attack threatens climate change agenda.
But shortly before his announcement, hackers broke into the servers at the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in Great Britain and posted e-mails in which scientists dismissed climate change skeptics, expressed concern about the lack of evidence to prove the threat of global warming and even made one reference to a plan to “hide the decline” in temperatures.
This is why we love Justice Antonin Scalia. In an interview for CBS “60 Minutes” which will air Sunday, he tells the woman interviewing him to “Get Over It!” after she proclaimed that many believe that the decisions of the courts were “not based on judicial philosophy but on politics” where Scalia brilliantly replied “I say, nonsense.”
Scalia also reminded her that it was indeed Al Gore that turned it from a matter of “Democracy” to a matter that was decided on by the courts, not George W. Bush. He also pointed out that the vote was democratically voted on within the courts 7-2.
It was Al Gore who made it a judicial question. It was he who brought it into the Florida Courts. We didn’t go looking for trouble. It was he who said “I want this to be decided by the courts” and what were supposed to say? ‘No, not important enough?’
Oh if we could get one more Supreme Court nominee before November, how beautiful would life be.
