University questions credibility of global warming

A British university is launching an investigation into whether its scientists manipulated data in order to prove global warming is real.

The investigation at the University of East Anglia follows the theft of thousands of e-mails last month -- which were later leaked to the internet.

Global warming skeptics say the e-mails prove that climate change researchers hid data that didn't support their theories.

The head of America's Weather Forecasting Agency says the e-mails don't change the fact that the earth is getting warmer.
