Katie Couric: melting ice caps are worth more than 1,000 emails [video]

Posted: Updated:

In her Notebook on Copenhagen, CBS anchor Katie Couric makes a very strong case for why the hacked emails do not undermine the scientific realities of climate science:

"A picture is worth 1,000 emails and pictures of the polar ice caps show a 20% decrease since 1979. NASA images show a thinning of more than 7 inches a year since 2004. What the scientists did was wrong, but most experts agree that the science itself is not and the health of the earth should not be a political issue."
