According to Watts Up With That website, the CRU has been hacked and what appears to be genuine documents and emails exposing the shabby treatment of science by these so-called climatologists is appalling. Emails expressing joy that a scientist who disagreed with their research has died. Documents describing how they are covering up the scientific facts they don't like because it proves them wrong.
For Shame. And typical of the movement which has a ghastly history.
At any rate, here are the links. Decide for yourself. The Climate Depot is an excellent starting point - here.
Breaking News Story: CRU has apparently been hacked – hundreds of files released

HadleyCRU says leaked data is real
Sen. Inhofe Roundup of Key Moments Challenging Science of Man-Made Global Warming AND Inhofe declares victory in speech on global warming
Inhofe to Boxer: “We won, you lost — get a life!” Since there is no doubt in my mind that Barbara Boxer is a scum-sucking politician of dubious ethics, incapable of honesty and lacking a basic understanding of morality, I applaud Sen. Inhofe's statements below:
Hacked: Hadley CRU FOI2009 Files
UPDATED: Hadley CRU emails disclosed
Seems to me that someone has hacked UAH computers. All e-mails seem to contain at least an addrees ending uea.ac.uk. Also all the files seem to be UAH-related. At least some of the material has to be real, there are just so many small details that were just impossible to fake (for instance under briffa-treering-external/timonen there are some file names only a Finn would use).

From the hacked Hadley CRU files: IPCC lead author’s private admission: ‘The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.’

This preface was sent by the hacker/mole on 17 November to various sites [from CA]: We feel that climate science is, in the current situation, too important to be kept under wraps.
We hereby release a random selection of correspondence, code, and documents.
Hopefully it will give some insight into the science and the people behind it.

Sounds to me like someone on the inside, rather than a hack. Time will tell.
The emails include damning admissions of eg how Mann played "tricks" to diminish recent-year cooling.
