This Climategate business all rather puts me in mind of the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion. For those of you who don't know this was a late-nineteenth century Tsarist forgery which purported to show that there really was a worldwide Jewish conspiracy.

If memory serves it was exposed as a forgery fairly early on but that didn't stop people believing it for decades afterwards. With results we all know about.

Let's just hope that history does not repeat itself.

Update. Thought I'd do some fact checking at Wikipedia. It appears I am slightly out on the title - it should be The Protocols of the Elders of Zion - and the date - it was early 20th Century. Oh and some people still believe in it.
