I think those emails didn't challenge the science, as such. They were used to accuse those few scientists of lack of integrity. Based on what I read there were several investigations and independent studies that found no fault with their work. Now there is another release of emails that are thought to be of the same original batch, but held up in order to cause another scandal. They seem to be of the same sort. Where they from here, I don't know. Maybe more investigations?
