FBI Investigates Threats Against Climate Scientists!

"Two of the scientists involved in "Climategate" – the e-mail hacking incident at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, UK – have been emailed death threats since the contents of their private e-mails were leaked to the world. No further information can be revealed about these particular threats at present because they are currently under investigation with the FBI in the United States."---U.K. Guardian (12-8-09)

The U.K. Guardian (12-8-09) reports that the FBI is investigating threats made against our climate scientists. There is concern that ignorant, unstable people who are incited by denialist propagandists such as Virginia's Attorney General Cuccinelli may attempt to harm climate scientists who publish articles about global warming.

Denialist propagandists such as Virginia's Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli are supported by the fossil fuel intests. Cuccinelli's father has been a career gas lobbyist. The elder Cuccinelli touts his experience as a gas expert and boasts of his "European" clients. I would like to know if the elder Cuccinelli represents fossil fuel companies, perhaps even Russian fossil fuel companies. The arrogant Attorney General's office does not respond to such questions, but the elder Cuccinelli's business gave the younger Cuccinelli over 96,000 in campaign contributions.
As my blog has often noted, the Kremlin-financed satellite channel Russia Today also spreads denialist propaganda. The Russian LUKoil also paid for the translation of a denialist manifesto published by the President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus.
