"The time involved in downloading 200mb is significant". For me that's 100 seconds - is that really significant? But I agree with the rest of the analysis, and the likelihood is definitely stronger for a case of insider leakage.

Scientists? Maybe in the Maori party science wing where they study fleecing but apparently an embarrassment everywhere else.

I was a fan of the Maori sovreignty movement but always had that nagging reservation that tribalism and greed would pop back to the surface when the need to act in a civilised manner was removed. Nagging voices are sometimes worth listening to.


I don't understand why all the deniers are assessing all these emails on the basis that they are all genuine, when only those who sent and recieved them can confirm that is the case. It's not as though these emails were taken by an independent third party without an agenda.
But no, apparently skepticism is all of a sudden left at the door. Strange how that happens.


>>>>Regardless, the public interest in this, represented by the massive amounts of public money these scientists command and their ability to affect the lives of every living person, well and truly outweighs any right to confidentiality.<<<<

I therefore demand to see all your emails from the last 10 years Ian. If climte change is happening and it's partly our fault, and we CAN do something about it, but we don't because of people like you, then the public interest component far outweighs any privacy issues you might have.

Ian, your posturing as the know it all is sickening.

"The chances of a hacker breaching firewalls and then escaping with nearly 200mb of data that he has to suck in from different places (and know where to find), plus get through passwords and the like, are slim to nil. The time involved in downloading 200mb is significant, and if there had been an intrusion that big for that long, I'm sure we would have heard about it by now.

Many prestigious business and organizations have been hacked in the past. In the time of broadband downloading 200Mb is few seconds and a hacker could well remain undetected for an extensive amount of time to have a good look around.

Also as per your persistent guff about warming having stopped, as a proponent of the 'all natural, its the sun etc.. ' talk you should have noticed that we are at the bottom of the 11 year solar cycle. The difference between top and bottom solar flux is about the same as 7 years worth of CO2 rise at current rates. So if you add the two what do you get? A bit of a plateau for about 7 years or so with the warming trend to pick up speed in the coming upswing of the cycle.

I understand that a Green Party MP has been written to about the above CRU hactivism email, its contents and then serious questions were then raised about the Greens policies on climate change.

Results will be published here, if the Honourable Member replies.

Check the emails. You will find that the CRU received a Basic Science Grant from the Russian Federation. Follow the dots.
Yes we are at a Solar Min - so what?

But in the desert in Iraq there are the remains of old cities that were once full of people, green pastures, crops, and agriculture.
Now there is nothing but sand. Why?

Because its warming - and nothing to do with CO2!


When we pay our carbon taxes to the bank of Rothschild and the other usual suspects via the world government and they decide who has a business and who does not, I'm sure the climate will come to a standstill and stop changing, even though all that industry is off to the 2nd and third world and they have to make no cuts to their output of the poisonous C02, the evil, evil, harmful ungreen C02. So Thomas you and me and the rest of the once industrialized modern world can hunker down in a new all loving Neofeudal(the UNs own words) earth worshiping Fascist(look up the meaning in a dictionary) CCTV monitored hellhole with low paid green jobs for all, no bill of rights and a nice carbon card to go with it just to make sure we don't have too much protein.
Read the Copenhagen treaty PDF, and count all the new taxes and intrusive laws we will have no say over, its really really loving. This isn't about the Climate, this is about the end of freedom and sovereignty and the beginning of serfdom. only 14 days to go Thomas I really hope we sign up because it would take all the other signatory's of the treaty to let us out and you know they will never do that, yippee!

Münchhausen Governments with Carbon 'Indulgences' to be bought and sold for Transgressions!

Bring on the Inquisition!!

Go Ian~!


Ian, when are you going to allow your emails to be released? Obviously it'll be someone who doesn't agree with you that selects which to release. They even play around with them a little, who knows.

When I get a taxpayer grant of 35 mil to do climate research, and in an office paid for by the taxpayer, then my emails will be available under the OIA just as they were when I worked at TVNZ.

Until then, as a private citizen working for a private company. No.

Not that there's much to the emails. Lots of advice on how to lengthen or enlarge one's member, or my lost inheritance from a long forgotten tribal Nigerian ancestor...or a range of other fascinating titbits.


Any "old time" farmer worth his salt could have told you that we are NOT in a warming trend, that we have been cooling. I live in Michigan, where the winters have been getting warmer and the summers MUCH cooler. The garden I grow every year has seen fruit and vegetables that taking longer to ripen because of the lack of warm temps. This year tomatoes barely ripened and green peppers (which need warmth to grow properly cause they don't like cold) were immature in September. The Earth has cycles and we are simply in the "down phase" coming into an Ice Age, such as what happened in Europe (I think it was the 1800's).

The real question is this: Is it a small manageable Ice Age or a big one?

Shane Ponting

Ian, seriously? We should talk about your email accounts because those enlargement emails and nigerian scans are easy to block (without keyword banning).

It's been years since I got one (although if I want one I just reconfigure everything and the floodgates open to thousands per day, the reason why I'm savvy on this lol).

In the time of broadband downloading 200Mb is few seconds

200MB divided by 5 seconds (which is on the longer side of a "few seconds") = 40 MB/sec or multiply by 8 and you get 320 Mb/sec. Only those with lots of moolah can afford that sort of bandwidth and you are assuming the pathway in question can even handle it - it would only take a single 100Mbit link at CRU to triple the transfer time, add the roundtrip latencies, protocol overheads etc and your few seconds argument becomes the exaggeration that it is.

Again, yes the possibility of it being a purely external attack is there but it's dwarfed by probabilities and historicities which show insiders are far more often the ultimate cause of the leak...


"When I get a taxpayer grant of 35 mil to do climate research"

Come on, CM, can't you organise this grant for Ian so we can all read his e-mails? :-D

IF climate 'alarmists' like CM and Renowdon are so happy with possible signs of corruption in certain circles - what does that say? Apparently this corruption is considered to be the norm.
