The mainstream skeptics are now going on record. This is going to get ugly for Manbearpig Al Gore and his allies very quickly.
As of this writing, the BBC is the first mainstream news source to cover the story. But instead of discussing the content of any of the e-mails, the BBC is focusing on the illegal nature of the computer system breach. An expert was quoted who alluded to the contentious nature of the global warming debate, and how both sides would resort to tricks to help their side.
Thats pretty rich. If the hacked e-mails with incriminating content just happened to be Sarah Palins, does ANYONE believe that news reports would avoid disclosing the content of those e-mails?

Rush Limbaugh is talking about this right now. He said details could be found on Climate Depot, but the server is busy.

Just what we all knew... humans are too puny to affect the climate but NOT too puny to manipulate facts for socialist politics.
Ho hum... what else is new?

Sorry to throw a wet blanket on the celebration, but it was wrong when the baby-democrat-thug hacked Sarah Palin’s email, and it was wrong to hack these emails. The person who did it has committed a crime and should (and probably will) be prosecuted. That said, I will not mind if our scientists both lose credibility as they so richly deserve and become (shocking suggestion) scientific in their future research to avoid a repeat of this embarrassment.

I wish I could print out those emails and duck tape them to Newt Gingrich’s head.

I hope this is all true and not a hoax. They say 1,097 e-mails, 60+ docs compliling over 65 megs of data.
I would like to see the entire file. But so far, only bits and peices are being made public. Bits and peices could be manufactured. I saw the interview but don’t know the guy confirming they had been hacked.

I personally hope that every one of the leftist who invested billions into this scam end up losing most of their money. IMHO that would be poetic justice since they tried to defraud all of us with higher taxes for something that can’t be controlled.

The Blue-Dress Moment May Have Arrived [Chris Horner]
I am not able to fully digest this at present, catching up with the boys from days away and then up at O-Dark-Thirty for a flight to California for a talk, but check out what Anthony Watts among others have posted.
Now, none of us can attest to the validity of what has been posted on a Russian server (nor can we even be sure of how it was obtained, though it purports to be non-classified data held by a purely public agency subject to freedom of information/transparency laws). But I'm told it's almost 61 megabytes of files, and after a few days of scrutiny appears (to the kind of people who would know) to be legitimate. And very revealing, both the data and what are represented to be comments and admissions by leading lights on Team Alarmist.
If legit, this apparently devastating series of revelations will be very hard for the media to ignore. I didn't say impossible — they're fully vested partners in the global warming industry, because catastrophism sells. But so does scandal, and this appears to be the makings of a very big one. Imagine this sort of news coming in the field of AIDS research. Then reflect that the taxpayer spends more on climate-related research than on the entire suite of AIDS programs, far beyond drug research.
