I waited to post on this report because, frankly, it didn't seem believable to me at first. Now it's been verified in some very substantial ways, and I've been able to download the data myself and take a look at it.
Some unknown hacker broke into the computers at Britain's Climate Research Unit (aka “CRU”), at the University of Anglia. The hackers stole some 165 mb of data, including over a thousand emails and five thousand documents of various kinds. They pass every sniff test I've got – they appear to be genuine (and the CRU admits that hackers broke in).
What they reveal is corrupt science at work. Several different scientists – all prominent in the global warming “movement” are clearly conspiring with one another to falsify their data. That's bad enough right there, but there's more that shows the same group conspiring to silence their critics, both in and outside of science.
It's vile. It's depressing. We're the victims of an enormous scam, and the perpetrators of that scam aren't “true believers” – they're no better than common criminals.
Pardon me while I go take a shower.
