Climate Depot has posted a story on their site about how a computer hacker broke into computers at Hadley CRU, Britain’s top institute for climate change, and released confidential emails that show top scientists manipulating global warming data.
The hacker, who is now believed to be an insider who’s now blown the whistle, uncovered over 1,000 e-mails from the institution which may incriminate the science of global warming. Apparently, prominent scientists who have been pushing the man-made warming theory have been exaggerating and manipulating warming data. According to Climage Depot, the CRU director admits the e-mails appear genuine. Here is one below. See others here.

Dear Ray, Mike and Malcolm,
Once Tim’s got a diagram here we’ll send that either later today or first thing tomorrow.
I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline. Mike’s 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.
