Our Readers have filed more than 1,000 comments in response to Sarah Palin's op-ed column attacking climate change science and suggesting President Obama should not go to Copenhagen for the international climate talks. The comments are full of sarcasm and attempts at humor and fall into these categories: Palin is right; Palin is wrong; The column is ghostwritten;The Washington Post has lost its way for publishing her. The global warming debate has gained considerable volume in recent days because e-mails and files have come to light showing "the leaders of climate-change science discussing flaws in their own data, and seemingly scheming to muzzle their critics," as David A. Fahrenthold and Juliet Eilperin wrote recently.
