COP15: Russia behind Climategate?
The plot thickens as to who was responsible for leaking confidential e-mails purporting to show the alleged manipulation of climate statistics and the climate debate by British scientists.

According to a report in Britains Independent, the computer hackers who accessed and then published the e-mails may have been none other than Russias FSB intelligence service. According to the report, the e-mails were first posted on a server in the Siberian city of Tomsk.

"It's very common for hackers in Russia to be paid for their services," Professor Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, the vice chairman of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, is reported to have said, with the inference that the retrieval was backed by some measure of officialdom in Russia.

He added that the publication was a "carefully made selection of emails and documents that's not random. This is 13 years of data, and it's not a job of amateurs."

We are spending a lot of useless time discussing this rather than spending time preparing information for the negotiators, Ypersele went on to say in another report in The Times.
