Hackers targeted the University of East Anglia\'s Climatic Research Unit, pictured, and published sensitive emails on the internetMail Online by Fiona Macrae 21st November 2009

One of the world’s leading climate change research centres has been accused of manipulating data on global warming after thousands of private emails and documents were leaked.

Hackers targeted the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and published the files, including some personal messages, on the internet.

Among the most damaging is one which appears to suggest using a ‘trick’ to massage years of temperature data to ‘hide the decline’.

The CRU, which plays a leading role in compiling UN reports and tracks long-termchanges in temperature, has repeatedly refused to provide detailed information about the data underlying the temperature records.

It is thought that this could have triggered the theft. Climate change sceptics claim that some of the leaked messages discuss ways of manipulating data that fails to comply with the establishment view that climate change is real and is being driven by man.

The email suggesting ‘hiding the decline’ is purported to be from Phil Jones, the unit’s director.

He denied trying to mislead, telling the TGIF digital newspaper he had no idea what he meant by the phrase.

‘That was an email from ten years ago,’ he said. ‘Can you remember the exact context of an email you wrote ten years ago?’

Another message has been interpreted as an attempt to control the publication of research carried out by sceptical scientists.

One way of doing this would be by loading the panel of researchers who review papers ahead of publication with experts who are ‘on-message’.

Talk of a figure being ‘shoehorned’ into a report from the UN’s International Panel of Climate Change appears in another of the documents.

Although the data was stored on the university’s computer system, the email exchanges also involve experts from other institutions around the world.

A spokesman for the University of East Anglia said: ‘We are aware that information from a server used for research information in one area of the university has been made available on public websites.

‘Because of the volume of this information we cannot currently confirm that all of this material is genuine.

‘This information has been obtained and published without our permission and we took immediate action to remove the server in question from operation.

‘We are undertaking a thorough internal investigation and we have involved the police in this inquiry.’

The Met Office collaborates with the East Anglia unit on a variety of research projects, including global temperature records.

Spokesman Dave Britton said the two organisations had to turn down numerous Freedom of Information requests because they did not hold the copyright to the data.

‘There is a feeling we are hiding something,’ he said. ‘But we are not, we just can’t release the data.’

He said that is was unclear whether some of the documents had been tampered with, adding: ‘We are not concerned about the robustness of the science we are pushing but we are worried about it being interpreted out of context.’

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for your excellent updates regarding the upcoming Copenhagen Treaty next month.

    Some time ago, a christian friend of mine told me to look up HAARP on the internet. Weather manipulation that is being done by U.S Govt and no doubt other governments around the world under the guise of shooting power into the ionosphere to gain information about how to intercept enemy radio signals etc.

    You may no doubt know about this already, but it strikes me that it is a good time to pray that since hidden things are being exposed by the Lord these days, that Governments too should come clean about these activities which may be the true culprits behind our global warming and unpredictable weather patterns.

    Your sister in Christ,

    Dear Catch the Fire folks’

    I attend at New Life Worship Centre at Southport and was graced to attend Pastor Daniels address to us. I have a few points which should be made.

    Re the Copenhagen treaty…. we are not out of the wood. There is a huge incident planned early next year in the USA in the middle of winter, (because of the ease with which riots may be contained) … which will make the postponement of Copenhagens decision seem compassionate to our cause. America and the world will never have seen the like. 9/11 was small. Only less than 10,000 were lost. This time it will be millions.

    Obama is saying that the 9/11 “suspect” will be condemned! He WANTS to be condemned, and revered as a martyr! He had NOTHING to do with 9/11. You and I know about the CFR/Rockefellers/ Bilderberg. Aaron Russo on Youtube got it from the horses mouth about 9/11 in advance. Obama is creating a smoke screen. Be warned.

    Rudd is digging up the Scientology “purge”( to make us feel he cares!)

    Socialists do this … to take our minds off the boat people problem and the same sex Tasmanian movement.

    Socialists use distraction from the problem as the main course of action to silently sustain the problem. Be warned.

    The Lord is my shepherd

    …Yea though I walk through the shadow of the Valley of Death …

    Ignorance is not bliss.. We keep the faith and the Lord is our protection…

    This is the End time … of that there is no doubt.

    Praise the Lord. Hallelujah.

    Dear Jason,

    Thank you for your email.

    Can I suggest in relation to any investigation of Scientology, Christians should be careful in calling for more than a police investigation.Tax Exemption is very important to the Christian Church and is a product of the community’s view that by and large Church organisations perform good works and build up the community.

    If the Church of Scientology were to lose its tax exemption through some parliamentary investigative process this could open the door for any future anti-christian government to attack Christianity in similiar fashion.

    Senator Xenephon could be being innocently used as a Trojan Horse by those who would like in the future to attack genuine churches, particuliarly Christian ones in this way.

    The price of religious freedom can be the tolerance of some charletans was the view of the High Court in its 1983 case “Church of the New Faith v Commissioner of Payroll Tax (Victoria) wherin the High Court found Scientology to be a religion. The case for this view is put very well in the attached Weekend Australian article by Noel Pearson.

    God love you and bless you for your active love of Jesus and our beautiful country Australia.

    Kind Regards,

    Tony

    Thank you for your correspondence in the lead up to the Rudd Labor Government’s reintroduction of their flawed Emissions Trading Scheme legislation.

    I appreciate you taking the time to provide me with your views and information ahead of this important debate. This legislation came before the Senate on Tuesday, 17 November 2009.

    We look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of this legislation through the Parliament.

    I was wondering if anyone else has had unsolicited emails from the official VIAGRA webb site since they have emailed the Prime minister Mr Rudds Office about our concerns that he is signing the Copenhagen E.T.S. agreement.

    I used a email address that I don’t often use and with in a week of sending mr Rudd my email I have received two emails from VIAGRA, so I am wondering if mr Rudds office is using VIAGRA to answer all his emails on climate change.

    Keep up the pressure on this Rudd government and the opposition pawns who want to sell our country to the ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT.

    BLESS THE LORD FOR HIS PEOPLE

    The greatest reason God will be sending environmental disasters would be the fact we have an openly lesbian Penny WRONG as minister wouldn’t you say.

    The Bilble clearly condemns homosexuality yet we have Rud appoint WRONG as a minister.

    Disgraceful.

  12. 12 Fayre

    You need to pass this on to all you know before they sign away our financial life and living conditions. Pensions, health and education. We will have to pay ridiculous amounts to places like China and Indian whom are the worst polluters. Please read Terry McCrann for the last two days in the Herald Sun and open the items in this article. Do not delay or be complacent lest you live the rest of your lives regretting it.

    Regards Fayre.

    Rudd and Turnbull will have the most to gain as has Alan Gore. Big business making others pay!!! It is always the marginalized that pay!!!

  13. 13 Audrey & Maurice

    Dear Jason, Thanks for this email. We will certainly pray that the climate change bill will not be passed by the Senate. PTL a lady that Audrey had a word of knowledge about is coming to see Audrey on Thursday afternoon. We believe that Audrey will lead her to Christ. She once knew the Lord but blamed the Lord for dreadful things happening in her life. Must go. God bless. Audrey & Maurice.

  15. 15 Senator Cory Bernardi

    Dear Supporter

    Thank you for your support in signing my petition against the now abandoned Copenhagen Climate Treaty. It was your strong voice that made the scrapping of this treaty possible.

    However, we can not stop there.

    The Liberal Party this week decided by the narrowest of margins to support Kevin Rudd’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS). Despite this, I remain strongly opposed to any form of emissions trading scheme in Australia.

    I am committed to stopping Labor’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) because I know that it will hurt Australian families, damage industry, cut jobs and endanger the future prosperity of our great nation.

    If this ETS is enacted, it will be almost impossible to undo the damage it will have done.

    It is for this reason that I ask you to contact the Liberal Senators in your state that are planning to vote in favour of this legislation. As their constituents, you have both the right and the responsibility to contact them and ask them to vote against the CPRS.

    We have made a difference once already. I honestly believe that we can do it again.

    Please contact your local Liberal Senators and encourage them to vote against the ETS. You can find their contact details at

    http://www.aph.gov.au/Senate/senators/homepages/index.asp?sort=party

    Together, we can and we will make a difference. We must stop this legislation.

    With thanks for your ongoing support.

    … PERHAPS IT’S A DEVIOUS SCHEME TO IMPOSE A FASCIST WORLD GOVERNMENT ON THE BASIS OF SCIENTIFIC FRAUD

    Dear Australians, we are fighting a revolution here, of people against a global power elite as represented by our own Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, who has been infected with a Napoleon complex, flying from G-20 to APEC to CHOGM seeking to “unite humanity” against the “perilous threat of climate change” that has been happening on planet earth since the year dot. He is like King Canute ordering the tide to recede. Rudd’s best buddy in this charade is Malcolm Turnbull, former Australian chief of Goldman Sachs, the global commodity trading company who just coincidentally happen to trade billions of dollars worth of carbon permits. Turnbull showed his true colours by coming out on the side of the global elite who want to suck the wealth out of Australia on the basis of a scientific scam.

    EVEN THE QUEEN SUPPORTS ‘ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE!’
    Yes, the Queen, Prince Charlie and their globe trotting billionaire friends like Al Gore, Maurice Strong, Bill Gates and firms like Goldman Sachs, have billions invested in the carbon trading scam funded by we, the taxpaying public. We pay for the extra cost of power caused by the carbon permits Rudd and Turnbull want to force upon electricity companies, costs that threaten to literally send them broke and lump us with summer blackouts. But for the UN greenies and their Australian bureaucratic followers, power stations are evil because they increase our ‘carbon footprint’! It’s a scandalous fraud! Why?
    Because we effectively pay and Goldman Sachs and their ilk trade and profit from pieces of paper representing ‘carbon pollution’. Neat deal eh?

    BUT THE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA ARE RISING UP AGAINST THIS GLOBAL POLITICAL AND SCIENTIFIC SCAM!

    The Daily Telegraph, Sydney: “… a whopping 60 per cent of Australians are against Kevin Rudd rushing the Emissions Trading Scheme through parliament.

    Despite Mr Turnbull insisting the ETS must be passed now – ahead of the UN’s Copenhagen summit – the poll overwhelmingly backs his opponents – with 81 per cent of Coalition supporters wanting the vote delayed. Incredibly, nine out of 10 Coalition supporters – and three out of four Labor voters – say they don’t understand the ETS and want the Government to explain it better. The Galaxy poll, conducted exclusively for The Sunday Telegraph on Friday night, shows a huge 80 per cent of voters do not believe the Government has provided sufficient details about an ETS with only 26 per cent now supporting the Turnbull-Rudd push for the Senate to pass it into law immediately. Fewer than one in five Australians believe the Government has provided sufficient information about the ETS.Even 73 percent of Labor voters are in the dark over the ETS…

    FASCIST WORLD GOVERNMENT? SCIENTIFIC FRAUD? THAT’S A BIT EXTREME!

    You think living under a green bureaucracy directed by faceless, offshore UN committees deciding how you should live will be a walk in the park? Please do some study on UN Agenda 21. Listen to what these speakers at a US conference found out about UN Agenda 21 – a high-tech, global environmental dictatorship that was put into motion in 1992, just before the mass propaganda global environmental scares were launched worldwide. Remember the ‘ozone hole’, the nasty CFCs, the ‘greenhouse effect’, global warming and now ‘climate change’. And now our suspicions of fraud involving climate scientists at East Anglia University are confirmed by hundreds hacked emails.

    Lord Christopher Monckton says these scientists should go to court and jail for fraud and crimes against humanity. Lord Monckton also warns that Copenhagen spells the end for our western democracies. No, it won’t be the end of the world, but the global power elite will ramp up their sophisticated global social engineering to a new level.

    BUT HASN’T THE WEATHER BEEN EXTREME?

    Yes, Australia has been subjected to probably it’s worst drought. However, at the risk of invoking the ‘conspiracy theorist’ slogan, you should know that large scale weather modification has already been used for at least the past decade worldwide, probably to enhance drought. Despite a general mainstream media blackout, History Channel has covered this and US government ‘insiders’ have admitted it has been happening. There are thousands of videos and photos on the internet under the search term ‘chemtrails’. Weather control technology such as the HAARP facility in Alaska is capable of disrupting weather as a form of warfare and there is even a weather warfare treaty.

    PLEASE, IF YOU ARE AN AUSTRALIAN WHO BELIEVES IN FREEDOM, TRUTH AND OUR RIGHT TO SELF DETERMINATION AS A PEOPLE, SEND THIS MESSAGE EVERYWHERE! HOW DARE KEVIN ‘CANUTE’ RUDD SELL OUT THIS NATION TO A MONSTROUS GLOBAL SCAM!
    PERHAPS WE SHOULD ALSO BOYCOTT THE COMPANIES BACKING THE CARBON SCAM

    Are you all ready for Copenhagen?

    Read this article on “The Australian” newspapers online service- http://fw.theaustralian.com.au/news/beware-the-uns-copenhagen-plot/story-e6frg6qx-1225791869745

    Well, you better be ready, because it will change YOUR life forever.

    Kevin Rudd, (the “Sorry Man”) is about to sign our freedoms over to the clutches of international Satans who will stop at nothing to choke every man, woman, and child with crippling inflation under the guise of “Carbon Emissions Trading”. This will ultimately lead to the economic enslavement of our dwindling middleclass, further increasing the number of working poor in our nation of Australia; a phenomenon that is sadly beginning to take a stranglehold in our “democracy”.

    Link to an Australian radio interview relating to the hidden agenda behind the Copenhagen treaty- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STEbtrCGOW8

    Ask yourselves this question-

    Historically, have governments EVER made a difference for the most vulnerable?

    That’s a resounding NO!! Glad we all agree.

    Now, being fully aware of how corrupt our political system is, what makes you think that Copenhagen will be any different; considering the above resounding NO!!

    Some of you may be saying “CONSPIRACY THEORIST”. I say, that to completely dismiss all this, is to be nothing more than a pitiful Lemming; in keeping with the old Scottish proverb that states- “Only dead fish swim with the tide”. Assuming we all have common sense, would any of you put it past our corrupt political leaders to plot such a thing; an agreement that will fatten their pockets and the pockets of the BIG end of town, at the expense of guess who?

    What makes all this all the more hypocritical on their part, is that they are the very people that have hampered the efforts of innovators to make any real difference, particularly in green energy production, and just as dramatically, in the automotive industry. THIS IS THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM, PEOPLE!!! THIS IS IT!!

    I.E.

    THOSE WHO TELL YOU THAT YOU NEED TO PAY MORE FOR YOUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND CARBON “FOOTPRINT”, ARE THE VERY PEOPLE WHO ARE KEEPING US IN A STATE OF TECHNOLOGICAL STAGNANCY!!

    WHY!!

    SO IN THE MEAN TIME, WHILE THE LEMMINGS SAY AND DO NOTHING, THEY ARE LINING THEIR POCKETS WITH THE HARD EARNED DOLLARS THAT SHOULD BE GOING INTO YOUR CHILD’S MOUTH!!!

    Please watch these videos, because you should know what your governments are about to become signatories to, WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT!!!

    Here are three links that are a must-

    Keep a short leash on your political leaders, and NEVER assume the have your best interests at heart, because it’s not in their nature to.

    Let this keep circulating as Copenhagen approaches. MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

    Pabs.
