I find this a bit disturbing — how about you?

Russ Steele

Consider these posts from the Instapundit:

The liberal left global warmers are striking back, they have been exposed for what they are, crooks, hoaxers, and grant whores, and they are looking for those responsible for lifted the lid on the climate change research cesspool and let the sun shine in. They are looking for the person. or persons, who published their darkest secrets in Climategate 1.0 and Climategate 2.0.

    Reading the comments at Watts Up With That, several people suggested the government raid was motivated by what they think are on the remaining encrypted files. Information that could being down a government perhaps?

    Hmmm…maybe it just has something to do with the fact that HACKING IS A CRIME?

    Just ask Julian Assange.

      So if Julian A. sends me the result of his hacking I’m guilty too?

      I don’t know the law in Great Britain, but; if the blogger was in communication with the hacker, or was the hacker himself, then his computer hard drive is evidence, and I assume that, with a search warrant, the police are within their rights to seize evidence in pursuit of the hacker.

      Assange got tracked down as a young hacker and its what shifted him to on-line activism.

    I’m not quite sure it has been established there was a “hacker” or in fact a crime – whislteblowing is not a crime in most countries. Although you seem to throw that term about as loosely as UEA.

    I do think that there is fear in what may come in the next batch, as these will all be after the dates of 1.0 and the establishments coverup of the details already revealed as the truth started coming out – could be real juicy. I’m really not sure UEA wants to find them, on the other hand the politico’s have more to lose.

    The Norfolk police have clearly stated that they are investigating the case as a crime.

    Its a fascinating case actually. Right out of a Neal Stephenson novel. And imagine, the data went from Russia to Saudi Arabia to a climate skeptic blog; coincidence? or did someone in Saudi Arabia have something to gain by keeping us addicted to oil? Just askin’!

      Most with a clue expect it was an inside job. Someone at UEA in IT, for example, with unfettered access to emails, files, and years to gain a special dislike for the shenanigans by ‘the team’.

      No, there is no evidence of hacking in to get those files out, bundled so nicely with a FOIA label.
