AFTER RUSSIAN COMPUTER HACKERS DUMPED CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS ON WEB
by John Charlton & Doug Cook
(Nov. 20, 2009, 11:30 PM) — The BBC is reporting that an unidentified group of Russian computer hackers has attacked the computers of a leading British Research Institute which has argued for dire changes to human behavior on the basis of their scientific studies showing the advance of Global Warming at alarming rates.
While this would be a minor story, otherwise, what was revealed when the hackers published on the net, the files which they stole, is what is making rounds tonight across the web. It seems that the staff of the institute parsed data to advance the Global Climate-change agenda.
First, the fact of the theft and breach of security. The BBC in an unsigned on-line report writes:
E-mails reportedly from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU), including personal exchanges, appeared on the internet on Thursday.
A university spokesman confirmed the email system had been hacked and that information was taken and published without permission.
An investigation was underway and the police had been informed, he added.
“We are aware that information from a server used for research information in one area of the university has been made available on public websites,” the spokesman stated.
“Because of the volume of this information we cannot currently confirm that all of this material is genuine.
“This information has been obtained and published without our permission and we took immediate action to remove the server in question from operation.
“We are undertaking a thorough internal investigation and we have involved the police in this enquiry.”
Those who have studied the published internal documents, however, find that they indict the institute for fraud. It seems from the published emails, that science researchers and administrators inside the Climate Research Unit of University of East Anglia engaged in collusion to adjusting scientific findings to suit their preconceived political opinions, and did not actually submit in their entirety the true scientific data which they reported their published findings. Though it has not been independently determined if the published emails and documents are authentic, the rapidity at which the Institute and British authorities are moving to protect the data seem to confirm their authenticity.
The East Anglia institute, according to the BBC is one of the major players in the Global Climate scam:
Researchers at CRU, one of the worlds leading research bodies on natural and human induced climate change, played a key role in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) fourth assessment report, which is considered to be the most authoritative report of it’s kind.
This is the very report cited in the proposed text of what has become to be known as “The Copenhagen Treaty.” The actual working document is entitled, “The Framework Convention on Climate Change,” and the recent version was approved by the “Ad-Hoc working Group on Long-Term Cooperative Action” under the U.N. Convention, at Bonn, Germany, Aug. 10-14, 2009.
The Post & Email is in the process of publishing a legal analysis of the treaty (Part I, Part I), to explain and expose the errors upon which it is based and the dangerous grab-for-power politics which underlies it.
For those who actually wish to see the over 1,000 alleged stolen documents, which implicate the researchers of the East Anglia Institute in Climate fraud, they were originally published at a site in Romania at http://ftp.tomcity.ru/incoming/free/FOI2009.zip. The file was published on the web at 9:57 am on 11-19- 2009, but has since been pulled from the net.
An unknown person put postings on some climate skeptic websites that advertised 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.
Watts says many of the emails emanated from public Universities in the United States of America, and that the quantity of the data released by the hackers argues for its authenticity. Indeed, The Post & Email judges that 61 megabytes represents nearly 10 years of work by the average typist.
Watts publishes a sample of the incriminating emails.
