Some are unhappy that the Copenhagen conference on climate change is going forward. I think that it is entirely appropriate in light of the revelations coming out of CRU/IPCC. After all, Copenhagen was where Danish author Hans Christian Andersen published The Emperor’s New Clothes in 1837. While we tend to remember the little boy who called out "But he isn’t wearing anything at all!" we often forget that the entire story was about far more than a vain ruler.
