E-mails will impact on Copenhagen summit

(BBC): E-mails hacked from a climate research institute suggest climate change does not have a human cause, according to Saudi Arabia’s lead climate negotiator. Mohammad Al-Sabban told BBC News that the issue will have a "huge impact" on next week’s UN climate summit, with countries unwilling to cut emissions. Other scientists say the e-mails from the University of East Anglia do not alter the picture of man-made warming. Itappears that the material was hacked or leaked; a police investigation has yet to reveal which. Climate "sceptics" have claimed that the e-mails undermine the scientific case for climate change being caused by humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions, dubbing the issue "ClimateGate".
