Scandal, scandal, scandal — how you frustrate me so!

Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart took a moment to comment on the latest controversy surrounding leaked emails written by a few top climate scientists. Out of the hundreds of thousands of sentences in these emails, climate change naysayers are pointing to a couple of the more incriminating ones to back their case that global warning doesn’t exist.

In one email, Director of Climate Research Phil Jones says:

“I’ve just completed Mike’s nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”

Oh, Lord!

To the scientists involved in the scandal, Jon Stewart offers these words of advice: “If you care about an issue and want to make it your life’s work, don’t cut corners! It’s disheartening for people inclined torwards the scientific method, and it’s catnip to these guys who are going to end of celebrating tonight, drunk, roaming the artic circle trying to skull f$#@ polar bears!”

    Jon Stewart is saying the leading scientists caught hoaxing to hide world temp decline does not debunk the issue of global warming? Maybe we need a comedian to make fun of our comedian.
