A few days after leaked e-mail messages appeared on the Internet, the U.S. Congress may probe whether prominent scientists who are advocates of global warming theories may have misrepresented the truth about climate change.

Sen. James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, said on Monday the leaked correspondence suggested researchers “cooked the science to make this thing look as if the science was settled, when all the time of course we knew it was not,” according to a transcript [2] of a radio interview posted on his Web site. Aides for Rep. Darrell Issa, a California Republican, are also looking into [3] the disclosure.

The leaked documents (see our previous coverage [4]) come from the Climatic Research Unit of the University of East Anglia in eastern England. In global warming circles, the CRU wields outsize influence: it claims the world’s largest temperature data set, and its work and mathematical models were incorporated into the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 2007 report [5]. That report, in turn, is what the Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged [6] it “relies on most heavily” when concluding [7] that carbon dioxide emissions endanger public health and should be regulated.
