CRU was ONE climate research organization. There are thousands of others worldwide, all independent but contributory to climate journals. You can't just go and say they're all wrong when they've contributed, collectively, to decades worth of research.
It's not a crime to expose criminals and I'm in favor of justice, but it's a crime to hack into computer databases. I could just as easily call this a right-wing conspiracy manufactured by the rich industry elites who want to create popular dissent against AGW research - which, by the way, has in no way been invalidated by this one incident - because the truth is becoming so widespread. But since I'm not an extremist, I have no interest in such theoretical garbage.
Fact is, those against AGW have consistently failed in providing counter evidence time after time, both on these forums and elsewhere. If this conspiracy theorist non-sense is all they have left to cling to in order to try to prop up their ideas, then all the power to them.
In the mean time, REAL research continues.
