    They are the ones that really exposed this massive hoax and brought it out into mainstream consciousness.

    Not so fast there.

    While I am glad this fraud was exposed, breaking and entering is not a thing that should be encouraged.

    It looks like it was the russian intelligence service. They were originally posted on a russian site.


    I guess they are trying to do penance for Kim Philby and Alger Hiss.

    Russia is very dependent on oil and natural gas exports. Any move to alternative energy adversely impacts their economy.

    There's also speculation that it could possibly have been Keith Briffa, from inside CRU.

    I agree, b and e is never to be encouraged. Even if it were an inside job.

    However, I am glad that the fraud has been exposed.

    They weren't hacked, it seems it was from within, which is pretty much what speculation was from the get go.
