It was not Russia but a criminal organization that is out for hire. They have been used by Hamas to disrupt Israeli cyberspace and when nobody hires them they steal business data for ransom or simply crack credit card data. The only blame that we could lay at the Russians doorstep with this is that they do not enact laws that could make it easier to crack down on these guys.

Why are people upset that this information was hacked? Surely, if anyone, even the US President was hiding (i.e not releasing what should have legally been released) information that clearly showed a conspiracy to confuse the public then surely anyone uncovering such information should be hailed as a hero, not a villian.

If we had all the information AND it would show a conspiracy I could agree. We have what the instigators of the hack want to show us (and it gets weirder by the day, with the last insinuation that they got money from big oil to opportunely "altering" their data). So far we hav... [More]

We have what the instigators of the hack want to show us (and it gets weirder by the day, with the last insinuation that they got money from big oil to opportunely "altering" their data). So far we have a lot of snibblets that we can neither confirm whether they are sequential, have been edited or are within context. So far we have that most every CRU of hundreds of universities come to about the same conclusions. Makes the point kind of mute. Even if the books at East Anglia were cooked they seem to have done it so th... [More]

To not answer Oversword: If there was a big conspiracy it would hardly encompass all scientists and whoever paid to get East Anglia hacked would not have to do it. There would be a whistleblower. There is not.

Oh man questionmark, if you're part of the NWO how can I join them?

/Rolls his eyes./ It's all speculation. They don't know /who/ did it yet. Might have been a whistleblower, might have been some government flunkie of someone who wants to screw with the conference. So chill with the conclusions and let the game play out.

I Agree. Withdraw the accusations as this is way too fresh to have a clear picture just yet. I am just incredibly glad it has torpedoed COP15 right in its side. Hail to whoever hacked/leaked/divulged this information and may much more come forth.

And we`re supposed to think the Russians made NASA post this last month? Controversial New Climate Change DataNovember 10, 2009 New data show that the balance between the airborne and the absorbed fraction of carbon dioxide has stayed approximately constant since 1850, despite emissions of carbon dioxide having risen from about 2 billion tons a year in 1850 to 35 billion tons a year now. This suggests that terrestrial ecosystems and the oceans have a much greater capacity to absorb CO2 than had been previously expected. The results run contrary to a significant body of recent research which ex... [More]

So... carbon dioxide emissions have gone up 1750% in the last 159 years but CO2 levels have remained unchanged... Fulll article at earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Newsroom That's because greenhouse gasses such as CO2 don't have much effect on climate unless they can be propelled (somehow) into the upper atmosphere. In the lower atmosphere it doesn't take as long for greenhouse gasses to dissapate. http://www.livescience.com/environment/091027-volcano-ice-age.html
