On Tuesday afternoon on Fox News, actor and environmental activist Ed Begley Jr. got into a heated shouting match with Fox News contributor and substitute Neil Cavuto show host Stuart Varney about the "hacked climate emails."

The conversation started out civil enough. "Does this change things at all, these emails," Varney asks Begley. "Do you ever think that maybe you're wrong about global warming?" The GOP has now opened a probe into the emails, and the Drudge Report is calling the emails "the greatest scandal in modern science."

"I think the science is very clear on global warming." Begley responds. His point, in short, is that the newly leaked emails do not call into question the existence of global warming. Begley adds firmly, "don't get your information from me folks, or any newscaster. Get it from people with Ph.D. after their name."

At this point, Varney and Begley begin to talk over each other, in the manner of a school yard fight.

"The science is not in," Varney insists.

"It is in! Stuart, quit saying that. It is so in!" Begley interrupts.

"The debate is not over, sir."

From there, the show devolves into an all out shouting match. Begley accuses Varney of "spewing nonsense" and "lies," while Varney repeats loudly: "nothing to do with global warming" over and over again.
