UPDATE (12/11/09): Reasons To Believe has now posted a podcast responding to "climate-gate."
Oy vey! This story is not going to help my efforts to counteract the "scientists-are-in-collusion-to-deceive-the-public-about-Darwinian-evolution" conspiracy theory.
"Rigging a Climate 'Consensus': About those emails and 'peer review.'"
After all, if scientists and even peer-reviewed journals can collude about climate change, it seems at least hypothetically possible they could collude about Darwinism, too. I still doubt it, but I can certainly empathize with people who believe this way. Wow, very unfortunate.
