Just in case you’ve been living under a rock the last day or so…
Hacked alleged emails between some of our “top” climate scientists have revealed collusion, manipulation of data, suppression of data, deletion of data, team efforts to sideline skeptics ie. anyone who’s research didn’t fit the man-made global warming narrative…
Blair’s booyah here.
Jules’ booyah here (lotsa good links on that one).
An excellent round up here.
Where it all began here.
HotAir’s take here.
A few tidbits have even made it to the MSM. Interesting since this is potentially the biggest news story since 9/11. At least James Delingpole’s excited.
Gavin at RealClimate is having a hell of a time defending it all.
Naturally, Anthony Watts was on to it early.
I won’t link to ClimateAudit. Steve’s site is taking a beating.
In fact, it’s all over the blogosphere. With something potentially, if proved right, so serious, that will affect billions of people and dictate where trillions of dollars go, and yet where there are whiffs of conspiracy, collusion, manipulation, suppression and deletion of key data, why on Earth isn’t this all over the news channels?!
It’s even on Yahoo Answers. The longer the MSM stays essentially silent on this, the more they mute their relevance.
Slowly, slowly, they might just be coming round. This is just too big to suppress.

UPDATE III [Beef]
Keep and eye on Power Line also, as John has latched his analytical legal mind onto this subject, and when he decides to get to the bottom of something, the bottom better be afraid… very afraid.
“The biggest news story of the day is one that has barely begun to break and will continue to reverberate for months or years to come. Someone hacked into a computer at the University of East Anglia’s Hadley Climatic Research Centre, one of the main centers of anthropogenic global warming research. The hacker downloaded 62 megabytes of data from the server, consisting of around 1,000 emails and a variety of other documents. He uploaded them to an FTP server, where they were available to the public, apparently, for only a few hours. The event is described here.
Before the documents disappeared from that location, several people had downloaded them and posted them in other locations. I downloaded all of the material earlier today and have begun to review it. The emails are stunning. They are authored by many of the leading figures in the global warming movement: Michael Mann, James Hansen, Phil Jones, Keith Briffa, Stephen Schneider, and others. They are remarkably candid; these individuals talk to each other with the knowledge that they are among friends.
The emails I’ve reviewed so far do not suggest that these scientists are perpetrating a knowing and deliberate hoax. On the contrary, they are true believers. I don’t doubt that they are sincerely convinced–in fact, fanatically so–that human activity is warming the earth. But the emails are disturbing nonetheless. What they reveal, more than anything, is a bunker mentality. These pro-global warming scientists see themselves as under siege, and they view AGW skeptics as bitter enemies.”
Read the whole enchilada. Warministas are fundamentalist dead-enders, just like Jihadists.
BOOYAH! Bolt goes in for the kill. Talk about a boys’ club!
