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.

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?

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?
