ClimateGate roundup, Jan. 9: “domestic extremism” edition

Today’s Whiskey Tango Echo Foxtrot (what the everloving …) award goes to a post by Bishop Hill (via WUWT), who reports that:

This morning I contacted Norfolk Constabulary with a view to finding out if they had yet ascertained whether the breach at the Climatic Research Unit was a leak or a hack. I have just received a response which is frankly amazing:

Norfolk Constabulary continues its investigations into criminal offences in relation to a data breach at the University of East Anglia.  During the enquiry officers have been working in liaison with the Office of the Information Commissioner and with officers from the National Domestic Extremism Team. The UEA continues to co-operate with the enquiry however major investigations of this nature are of necessity very detailed and as a consequence can take time to reach a conclusion. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.

The National Domestic Extremism Team? Words fail me.

Me too. A followup post suggests that this is actually becoming almost standard operating procedure in England, even for minor crimes, just to get around “inconvenient” restrictions on an investigation.


One audio comment about all this though: Metallica: The more I see, the less I believe. And one video comment:

“Show me, don’t tell me” indeed.

UPDATE: Classical Values points to examples of AGW alarmist calling for the imprisonment, or even execution, of deniers.
