Emails From Obama's Science Czar Included in Climategate Leak

Did you wonder why the President is still going to Dopenhagen to negotiate the destruction of America's economy, even though the science of AGW has been compromised with the release of the CRU documents?

Some of his advisors are acolytes.

John Holdren, President Obama's Science Czar, who Forbes described as "...a fierce ideological environmentalist..." brags to the CRU conspirators about an email exchange (included at the link) he had with a Man-Made Global Warming skeptic:
From: "John P. Holdren"
Subject: For the EPS Wednesday breakfast group: Correspondence on Harvard Crimson
coverage of Soon / Baliunas views on climate
I append here an e-mail correspondence I have engaged in over the past few days trying to educate a Soon/Baliunas supporter who originally wrote to me asking how I could think that Soon and Baliunas are wrong and Mann et al. are right (a view attributed to me, correctly, in the Harvard Crimson). This individual apparently runs a web site on which he had been touting the Soon/Baliunas position. While it is sometimes a mistake to get into these exchanges (because one's interlocutor turns out to be ineducable and/or just looking for a quote to reproduce out of context in an attempt to embarrass you), there was something about this guy's formulations that made me think, at each round, that it might be worth responding. In the end, a couple of colleagues with whom I have shared this exchange already have suggested that its content would be of interest to others, and so I am sending it to our "environmental
science and policy breakfast" list for your entertainment and, possibly, future breakfast discussion.
The items in the correspondence are arranged below in chronological order, so that it can be read straight through, top to bottom.
It's nice to know that the country is now in the hands of such arrogant, egotistical, thorough-going elitists.
