Climategate investigated by – WTF? – the ‘National Domestic Extremism’ team | James Delingpole

Finally the Norfolk rozzers are on the case of Climategate.

Are they investigating fraudulent misuse of grant funds? Misleading manipulation of data by a taxpayer-funded research institute? Conspiracy to encourage the squandering of trillions of dollars on a non-existent problem?

Not according to the researches of the estimable blogger Bishop Hill. This morning he contacted the Norfolk Constabulary to ask them how the case was going: had they yet ascertained whether it was a leak or a hack. His response has just arrived:

Norfolk Constabulary continues its investigations into criminal offences in relation to a data breach at the University of East Anglia.  During the enquiry officers have been working in liaison with the Office of the Information Commissioner and with officers from the National Domestic Extremism Team. The UEA continues to co-operate with the enquiry however major investigations of this nature are of necessity very detailed and as a consequence can take time to reach a conclusion. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.

Tempe Harvey says:January 9, 2010 at 2:26 pmHi James – We heard you in a radio interview broadcast in Brisbane in 2009 – and rushed out and bought “Welcome to Obamaland” – IT’S FANTASTIC !!!!We see you doing a great public service exposing global warming lies. When you have a moment please consider writing something against the socialist agenda to use the tax system in the UK & Australia to redistribute family wealth to the daycare industry. The Australian govt. spends around 2x as much on families that use daycare than parents who actually raise their own children. I have an email from a Swedish public servant confirming that 81.3% of 1-5 year olds there attend daycare. Social problems of institutionalising small children are catastrophic, because daycare kids are more likely to have emotional & behavour problems AND because parents impoverished by daycare taxes are conscipted to paid work & unable to spend time with their teenagers either.Our Australian parent organisation has links with Full Time Mothers UK

    Kind regards,

And fined of course, plus the £15 ‘victim surcharge’ on top – one of the may euphemisms used by the government to collect even more ’stealth tax’.

    1/ The emails were stolen, stealing is a criminal act. Or to you does the means justify the cause. If and when you get your 50″ plasma TV and someone steals it will you applaud the thief?
    2/ Irrespective of the few cherry picked and edited emails that were published it has not altered the fact one iota that Global Warming is here and now and is happening, or are you still confused with the difference between climate and weather.
  4. CliveH says:January 15, 2010 at 7:38 pmTwo facts Patrick?I do not think so – the emails were leaked by a researcher fed up with the “Old Guard” spinning the truth and refusing to release the relevant data under legitimate FoI requests.As for Global warming being here – presumably that is why Mann had to hide the decline in his tree ring data post 1960 and use manipulated ground station data. Data that now has less reference points due to many stations being off line in colder areas and so the “Crimatologists” just fill in the missing bits with extrapolated data from adjacent – usually warmer weather stations.

    As for anyone being confused by weather and climate – it has to be you because the only difference is the scale of time frame.

    But then anyone that asks such a question relies on the spin that Climate is when it gets warmer and weather is when it is cold.

    Just except the fact that for years all the hints and glimpses of dodgy doings creating dodgy dossiers – from Saddams WMD’s and the 45 min – to the 20 ft wall of water of Al Go(d)res Inconvenient Truth (TRUTH???????) – it has all imploded on the “census” that was in reality a mutual admiration society of circa 27 people who created their own personal Gravy Train.
