Climategate investigation ends

Climate gate involved the criminal theft of computer based data from University of East Anglia (UEA) researchers by global warming deniers. According to Julian Gregory ,Detective chief superintendent, “the data breach was the result of a sophisticated and carefully orchestrated attack” and that there was no evidence to suggest that anyone working at or associated with UEA was involved in the crime.” However, the criminal perpetrator, we assume a member of the global warming denialist community, was not discovered and the statute of limitations for this particular criminal act runs out in November. Thus, the investigation closed Wednesday.

    And thanks for posting this Greg, because I will send him the link and await his liberal-bias-caused-nothing-to-be-found response to this. >.<

    It was probably an only-slightly-rogue operation within Newscorp.
