Already aides to Representative Darrell Issa
(Republican, California), who is the ranking member of the House
Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, have begun analyzing
the correspondence exposed by hackers.
The e-mails are of huge interest to American legislators because one
of them was sent by White House Science Adviser Dr John Holdren, in
2003, when he was at the Woods Hole Research Center, Massachusetts,
to support Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University.
The involvement of a White House adviser
has given the controversy political traction on Capitol Hill, where
legislators are considering the
Obama administration's plans for cap
and trade laws, just when Obama has committed himself to
restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions and
personal attendance at
the Copenhagen climate summit in a months time.
