Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Acquaintances of mine who previously belonged to the tin foil nut side of the climate change denial community have jumped on this as vindication for a life lived on the fringe.  They now claim that this scandal "proves" that climate change is a plot to subjugate the masses to an inferior life style.

It is quite distressing to see this scandal playing into the hands of such a community.  Likely there are some on the denial side who do not wear tin foil hats, (i originally typed hates), but even they must be salivating.

Someone please convince me there hasn't been serious damage done.

As an aside, even if there were zero data to support climate change, i would be fighting just as hard against the burning of fossils and their other chemical uses, because they remain poison to humanity.
