Five investigations, five "Not Guilty"

So, did climate scientists rig a study into global warming to show that global warming was happening when it in fact is not? There have now been five investigations into this question, and all five say that the study is sound. They criticize aspects of the scientists' behavior, which they basically call catty and unprofessional, but the science is sound.

Five investigations by scientific investigators, five "not guiltys"... surely this puts the whole "Climategate" thing to rest? Not so fast, padre! These investigations were all done by scientists! Who are, like, these un-American eggheads! None of them were done by Sarah Palin or Rush Limpdick, so they're not valid!

Like with Iraqi WMD, God himself could come down and say "there is no WMD" or "there is no scandal", and the neanderthalic True Believers would still refuse to admit reality. Oh wait, let me rephrase that to remove the word "neanderthalic". I just insulted Neanderthals, I think.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
