Has the global warming lie been truly exposed?

Thanks to Australia's Herald Sun for breaking this story.

In a potentially game-changing turn of events regarding "global warming" alarmism and its cap-and-trade policy implications, a hacker got into the computer system of the British University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit ("CRU"), one of the leading sources of the climate change hoax, and has made public a large amount of data and e-mail among the usual alarmist suspects.

CRU director Phil Jones has admitted that the data archive, including e-mails, is likely genuine.

For those of you who are interesting in downloading only the e-mail archive (about 3.4 megabytes, 1073 text files), click or right-click HERE.

One of the most damning e-mails (from file 0942777075.txt if you want to see it yourself) is from Jones to several American climatologists, including bogus-hockey-stick creator Michael Mann:

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.

You got that?  They seem to be repeating a "trick" they used when publishing an alarmist article in Nature magazine to make the data look like whatever they want it to look like and to "hide the decline".

The Sun Herald article linked above goes through a number of other e-mails.  I haven't had time to read more of them myself...and I may leave that work to others.

The main thing is that this would appear to be a black day for the cult of Algore and the self-serving "scientists" who, whether in search of greater funding or leftist politics, seem to be part of a large conspiracy of lies.

Maybe one of these guys will turn state's evidence and explain what's going on.  In the meantime, if further investigation proves this apparent pattern of lies true, someone should sue each of these men for abuse of public resources since many of them are on a government payroll.

This news needs to be spread far and wide, especially to politicians and regulators who have the desire and authority to tax and regulate us in the name of "global warming".

    The other fun part is where they call for the deletion of emails regarding the AR4 -- while there was an active FOI!

    Realclimate.org is a warmist site that routinely deletes skeptic posts, and which has banned some well known and respected skeptics from posting. Follow the money Mark Smither, global warming is all about Algore getting rich, George Soros converting the USA to a socialist democracy, and the US government getting more control and tax money.

    It's refreshing to see that CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, et al have just RUN with this story too. I am amazed that they have seemingly tossed aside their yolk to promote the socialist agenda of this Administration and of the Leftist elites to do some very deep investigation into the tricks and lies fed to us over a decade. **Sarcasm** This is why there will be no impact on the debate. When the newsmakers are in fact propaganda artists, the general public only learns what they want them to hear. It's horrible and frightening at the same time.
