Boxer: 'Not Climategate; E-Mail theftgate

Senator Barbara Boxer is the latest warming advocate to attempt to minimize the damage done by Climategate revelations by changing the subject.

Perhaps we should give her a "A" for effort on this one; she thinks whoever hacked the emails and computer codes at the CRU in Great Britain should be brought up on charges.

Michael O'Brien at The Hill's Blog Briefing Room:

Leaked e-mails allegedly undermining climate change science should be treated as a criminal matter, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) said Wednesday afternoon.Boxer, the top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, said that the recently released e-mails, showing scientists allegedly overstating the case for climate change, should be treated as a crime.

"You call it 'Climategate'; I call it 'E-mail-theft-gate,'" she said during a committee meeting. "Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I'm looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public."

[...]

Boxer said her committee may hold hearings into the matter as its top Republican, Sen. James Inhofe (Okla.), has asked for, but that a criminal probe would be part of any such hearings.

"We may well have a hearing on this, we may not. We may have a briefing for senators, we may not," Boxer said. "Part of our looking at this will be looking at a criminal activity which could have well been coordinated.

"This is a crime," Boxer said.

No one knows who leaked the docs. The information was actually sent a month ago to the BBC and the Guardian, both of whom promptly buried it. The docs were then uploaded to a file sharing account and dumped on the internet.

This has led some to speculate that the leaker is an insider at CRU and probably had legal access to the emails, although some of the docs may have been marked as private. Whatever or who ever is responsible did the world a huge favor.

And don't you find it just a little ironic that Boxer wants to prosecute someone for publishing "private" emails when the two scientists and their thousands of enablers still want to cause the transfer of trillions of dollars as well as destroy the sovereignty of the US and other countries based on fraud and at the very least, questionable science?
