The details on this are still sketchy, well probably never know what went on. But it appears that Hadley Climate Research Unit has been hacked and many many files have been released by the hacker or person unknown.. Im currently traveling and writing this from an aiprort, but here is what I know so far: An unknown person put postings on some climate skeptic websites that advertsied an FTP file on a Russian FTP server, here is the message that was placed on the Air Vent today:
We feel that climate science is, in the current situation, too important to be kept under wraps.
We hereby release a random selection of correspondence, code, and documents
The file was large, about 61 megabytes, containing hundreds of files.
It contained data, code, and emails from Phil Jones at CRU to and from many people.

Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm, Once Tims got a diagram here well send that either later today or first thing tomorrow. Ive just completed Mikes Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) amd from 1961 for Keiths to hide the decline. Mikes series got the annual land and marine values while the other two got April-Sept for NH land N of 20N. The latter two are real for 1999, while the estimate for 1999 for NH combined is +0.44C wrt 61-90. The Global estimate for 1999 with data through Oct is +0.35C cf. 0.57 for 1998. Thanks for the comments, Ray
This is hugh and series!
The climateaudit.org site is overwhelmed already from people trying to get onto it. The lid has blown off Al Gore, George Soros, Goldman Sachs, the Sierra Club, and all the other scum that have been peddling the AGW myth. I sent to Drudge and if he had a lick of sense, he will have a screaming siren at the top of the page very soon.
I hope you’re right, something’s got to give somewhere.
61 megabytes of files, data, source codes, and emails. Steve McIntyre from limate Audit has been requesting data from these guys forever and they refused to release it to him They recently said it was ‘lost’ I beleive. Well it looks like some of it has been ‘found’ and the ramifications could be enormous. People’s career’s could be ruined, cap and trade could be blown up, the fraudsters like Al Gore shamed into admitting their lies, and the country a hell of a lot better off.
Can anybody spell T-R-E-A-S-O-N? Yeah; guess I did.
What’s the ftp site’s address?
They ought to put it out as a torrent. That stuff cannot be contained.
Let’s see where this leads ....
61 Meg is not real big, but only a few nuggets may make this worthwhile.
Let's see what we've got here...
I believe it was ftp.tomcity.ru/incoming/free/FOI2009.zip
But it’s gone now. I bet enough people downloaded it though.
HHmmm... FTP seems to be down already. Anyone snatch the file?
This is awesome.
Send it to Andrew Breitbart at Big Government... he was the real brain behind Drudge, don’t know if he still is, but has his own site he is growing.
this is just another prank by a disgruntled teenage
hacker who is already on his way to prison.
Nothing to see here, move along.....MOVE ALONG!
I understand from reading here........... http://www.climateaudit.org/?p=7801#comments that it is out on bittorrent already and has been downloaded across the world. If proven real, it drives a stake through the heart of AGW and should result in the likes of Michael Mann, Briffa, Al Gore, etc being tossed in jail for perpetrating the fraud of the century.
Smells like a rick roll.
If this is true prosecute Al Gore for fraud!
While this may be an elaborate hoax, I tend to doubt it. A hoax would require more competence than bureaucrats are capable of.
It sure is a fascinating development.
The FOI2009.zip FTP file has been deleted. Also, I did a search for a torrent file with that name, but haven’t found one, yet. Any idea what they would have renamed it before uploading it as a torrent file?
For your downloading pleasure:
Someone on another forum said this works. Does it?
Thank you! You two rock!
This is explosive everywhere this evening. Some have likened it to an earthquake. But it is not an earthquake, it is not a tsunami, nor even volcanic...this is nothing less than a supernova. Galvin Schmidts Real-Climate has all but shutdown blogging tonight as they scurry like cockroaches in the light.
Michael Mann is the guy who invented the hockey stick graph.
The data files what is important. Focus on the data! the emails are only secondary.
No sirens yet, but at least Drudge has a link to this brilliancy:
(Pinging the list as a "FYI")
Ping list members, there is also this thread..
Don’t just download the this torrent:
Seed it. Seed the hell out of it.
It stretches the suspension of disbelief to think that someone actually admitted in an email to cooking the data.
I’m not a computer wizz. How do we know this is the real deal?
I did, you can access it here........

Al Gore could become worlds first carbon billionaire
Al Gore, the former US vice president, could become the worlds first carbon billionaire after investing heavily in green energy companies.
BUT - and it's an important “but” - the various emails and files and documents are themselves “real world” and real time. They are not written or scripted like an edited book. The dates and sequences ring correct: very, very difficult to do for records spanning more than a decade.
The related events (other publications, other authors’ quotes - and Handley Center's efforts to suppress other articles and in other peer-reviewed journals appear at the right time, under the right circumstances to “create” the organized deliberate fraudulent presentation of ONLY pro-AGW data in the scientific and IPCC’s “scientific” data.
Their blatant comments and “adjustments” of temperature data reflect actual changes that were made between 1995 and 2009.
Were they stupid to admit in emails that they were adjusting data to fit the UN’s needs for corrupt data? Yes. But if you “know” you cannot get caught, that you are “doing the right thing” by “saving the earth” (from capitalism and energy-using businesses) - then, well, yes you “need to save the planet - no matter what it takes.”
So, yes, the total amount of the files are true: even if some may have errors.
Was the whole thing faked? No. Not in my opinion.
Not by the responses that the AGW propagandists are presenting.
Time to play...
Wow... If this is a hoax, it is truly the most elaborate I’ve ever heard of. The some of the data summary papers alone would take months to produce.
I mostly try and laugh this crap off but I sometimes think it would be nice to insert the article into the writer.That was one of them times.
I'll admit I'm going to get far more enjoyment out of watching these peckers eat their words than I probably should.
The wheels on that bus will all be off the ground once big Al lands under it.What about that Dutch (?) dude that was wailing tears at that high-fallutin' climate change jamboree a coupla yrs back? bet he'll end up feeling like a galactic grade dick! ooohhh the memories are flooding back....we're going to need a much much MUCH bigger fan to cope with the truckload that's about to hit it.
Hope nobody detected any...er...glee 8-)
LOL. I shudder to think that my e-mails may become public. On the other hand, they're fairly boring.
