The biggest science scandal evah!

The biggest science scandal evah!  So declares the London Telegraph.  What are the talking about?  The “fiddled” historical temperature data that underlies the basic claims of the warmists.

I'm not sure how one goes about measuring the “bigness” of a science scandal.  If the measure is by how much impact a particular scandal had on the world, I think my vote would go to Rachel Carson's DDT distortions (in which she grotesquely overstated the dangers of DDT, and completely ignored the benefits to both wildlife and mankind), which at this point has cost millions of lives and continues nearly unabated.  Nevertheless, the perversion of science by the warmist climatologists is awful by any measure – and the necessary accounting still hasn't even started...
