Global Climate Center Hacked, Confirmed

Earlier today I posted a story abt a global climate group being hacked, emails showed they'd manipulated data... wasn't sure at that point if it was really true. Probably by now most of you know it's been confirmed that it's legit, they were hacked. I popped over to their site & it even has a message saying they're on emergency backup... I bet ol' Al Gore is sweating enough to start his own global warm-up ... Here's the last story I found:

"Global Warming" SCAM - Hack/Leak FLASH

Apparently a "Global Climate Center" was hacked and the contents have been posted to the Internet. A ZIP file exceeding 60MB and containing a huge number of emails and other documents has been posted worldwide.

Original speculation as to whether the files posted were legitimate or some sort of spoof appears to now be confirmed as legitimate:

“It was a hacker. We were aware of this about three or four days ago that someone had hacked into our system and taken and copied loads of data files and emails.”

I have not had time to read all of the material yet (there are over a thousand files involved!) but what I have skimmed looks VERY damning. Contained within the documents are what appear to be admissions of intentional tampering with data as well as intentional falsification of results to "show" man-made global warming.

One of the emails says:

"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."

That is, to hide a decline in global temperatures.
