The Game is Afoot: U.K. Investigation of Climategate Hacker-Criminals Heats Up!

"It seems to me the authorities wouldn't have acted without some actionable intelligence," said Michael Mann, a scientist at Pennsylvania State University who specializes in climate modelling and whose messages came in for particular scrutiny in 2009. "They must know something that we don't yet know."---NYT (1-1-12)

The New York Times (1-1-12) has published an informative article about the new leads in the search for the hacker-criminals who  stole climate scientists' emails and other documents from a server at the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Institute (CRU) and posted them on the Internet in 2009. The hacker-criminals posted a second tranche of stolen emails on the Internet in November 2011, and this may have given the authorities new information for their investigation. Even the U.S. Department of Justice is cooperating with the British authorities. See my previous post.

The Guardian (12-15-11) reports: 

A spokesman for the University of East Anglia said today: "We are pleased to hear that the police are continuing to actively pursue the case following the release last month of a second tranche of hacked emails from the Climatic Research Unit. We hope this will result in the arrest of those responsible for the theft of the emails and for distorting the debate on the globally important issue of climate change."
