Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) thinks those responsible for Climategate should face criminal charges. “Wow, that’s a bit harsh,” I thought when I read it.
On closer inspection, however, Boxer was calling for prosecution of the hackers, not the resourceful prof and his pals. As she told the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee yesterday: “You call it Climategate; I call it E-mail-theft-gate.”
E-mail-theft-gate. Sorry, Babs, but I don’t think it will catch on. Except, perhaps, at the BBC.
