One of the bigger points I hear in the arguments about Climategate is that the emails, while interesting, aren't considered the "true smoking gun" in the scandal. Rather, the real meat is inside a package of source code and programmer's notes that was included along with the emails.

The skeptics say that in there is evidence of tampering with data, and other bad behavior - and since this is source code, i.e. logic and mathematics, it's not something that can be taken out of context like a person's words in an email can.

I feel, though, that there is a fair amount of reasonable doubt that can be thrown the source code's way, and that a lot of the more serious claims that skeptics make about the code and what it means for Climategate, really aren't so.
