Big news on the Climategate front. The chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, has issued a major response to the Climategate scandal.

A Tale of Two Leaks: NYT Bashed Palin, But Won't Touch ClimateGate

November 24th, 2009 12:41 PM
The ClimateGate email leak has demonstrated in full force a glaring double standard in the mainstream media's coverage of leaked information.
