Hacked E Mails: Climate Scientists Discuss “Hiding Decline” In Temperatures

Well, this [2] should get interesting.

The Hadley Climate Research Unit in Britain was hacked yesterday, apparently by Russian black hats, and thousands of sensitive documents, including emails from climate scientists dating back a decade, were posted online. More here [3].

Officials at Hadley, a leading global-warming research center, have apparently confirmed to an Australian publication [4] that the documents are genuine.



The whole affair has much of the blogosphere alight. Blogs skeptical [6] of man-made global warming see blood in the water [7].

Some of the old emails from scientists made public apparently make references to things like “hid[ing] the decline,” referring to global temperature series and different ways to slice and dice climate data.
