After what happened with the University of East Anglia and Michael Mann, even Bill Gates couldn't pay me enough money to turn me into an AGW believer. Sorry folks. That train left the station long ago.

That seems an odd and extremely isolated conclusion to me. First off the University and others not only reported but demonstrated how the emails were cherry picked and quoted out of context to appear as evidence of fraud. This was done not by the individual who hacked the accounts but by the denial organization that paid for the emails and subsequently spun the snippets.

Far more important is that even if it was the opinion of any or some of those people who authored those emails is that their opinions, positions, whatever have zero effect on the documentation including satellite photos and long term observation of glacier melt and other obviously undeniable and unprecedented changes in global climate.

It is possible that some mechanism we don't yet understand is responsible for the rate of climate change we are currently and for many decades since the Industrial Revolution experiencing, but the change is real and definitely not a hoax, and it behooves all thinking humans to use our best and brightest, to act accordingly. If it turns out we were mistaken as to the causes we have lost very little. If we were accurate and did nothing we stand to lose orders of magnitude greater underpinnings of civilization itself.

Put it this way... if you live or work in a large building and a fire alarm goes off, even if it is known to occasionally be a false alarm, it is still wiser to leave the building or at least call the Fire department. Better safe, than sorry.

Video of Greta Thunberg's U.N. speech set to death metal music has more than 3 million views

And it was endorsed by the teen environmental activist herself, who joked: "I have moved on from this climate thing... From now on I will be doing death metal only!!"

In the interest of truth-seeking full disclosure, I figured I'd better point out that the latest huge ice sheet (630 square miles) to break off in Antarctica doesn't appear to be a result of climate change, so if you see anyone saying it is evidence, it is far more likely you're seeing blind agenda.
