I deplore hackers, therefore the hacking of emails from the Hadley CRU has been somewhat of a conundrum so far. Perhaps it can be better rationalized by thinking of it as 'civil disobedience' in the form advocated by various greens and government scientists.
Of course we are all waiting for Mr. "Millions of Degrees" to weigh in with outrage about this but maybe he's laying low thinking they'll award him with an extra Nobel for scientific diversity or something. Anyway, the more interesting aspect of this whole thing is the timing.
Lord Moncton made a splash a few months ago by saying Copenhagen was the beginning of One World Govt, a rallying cry for all kinds of crazies and even a few sane folks who see the handwriting on the global wall. This hacking event occurred just three weeks ahead of what some are calling "Hopenhagen" (ironically starting on Pearl Harbor Day).
Since the Hopenhagen movement is corporate-sponsored it led to a slam on Coke from WND, pointing out their original sponsorship. Perhaps they've forgotten that Coke once tried to teach the world to sing.
A bigger surprise on the sponsorship list might be Newsweek. Just kidding! The bigger surprise might be Major League Baseball. Or the Wall St. Journal. Or Business Week. In other words, this seems to be a consortium interested in something, most likely ways to either grab the reins of a bandwagon or not get stampeded by it. Worthy of further investigation, no doubt. Or as the website says, only sixteen days left---in this case to figure out exactly what's going on here.
