E-mail controversy shifts debate from economy to science -- but for how long?

The controversy surrounding the hacked e-mails of climate scientists has given new life to the skeptic camp that had been largely relegated to the sidelines during this year's legislative fight and, in the minds of opponents, handed them a potent new weapon against the climate bill. "What it does is it allows people, it allows elected officials, it allows media, it allows guys like me access to the science debate again," said Michael McKenna, a Republican lobbyist who works on energy issues. "For a very long chunk of time, the science debate was thought to be toxic. It was settled, it was done, let's move along. This has given folks who want to talk about the science a very easy access point."
