A new scandal involving hapless British climate researchers has fired up global warming skeptics and made climate change a burning issue again just days before President Obama is set to attend talks in Copenhagen.

To recap: Last week, leaked e-mails revealed a small group of influential scientists at the East Anglia Climate Research Unit (CRU) had boasted about concealing data from skeptics. On Sunday, the Times of London poured gasoline on the controversy. Scientists from the same East Anglia facility admitted to throwing away some raw temperature data in the 1980s -- data has been used to achieve an international consensus on climate change.
