Climategate, Global Warming and the Trident Workbench: Galileo and Peer Review

What would Galileo do?  I think that he would head out to the local coffee shop, order a large cup of coffee and think about this whole situation with the “science” of global warming.  Then he would walk home and think about what resources did he have to really look at the data behind the…
