    Climategate refers to a climate change scandal that took place in November 2009. A hacker stole more than a thousand emails from the Climate Research Institute at the University of East Anglia, and released many to the public. This information was used as proof for climate change skeptics that scientists were falsifying data and misrepresenting facts in order to make the public believe climate change was taking place. Many parts of the emails were taken out of context, causing many people to believe the skeptics, and seriously doubt the credibility of the scientists and their research. Many of the emails were written unprofessionally, as no one ever thought they would be made public, but no one found any evidence of scientists tampering with data in order to prove global warming.
