Well well well.. I was just saying to someone the other day that I had thought that this hack was a paid and planned gig.

The files were placed on a server in Tomsk, which could be a coincidence.. But…

At any rate, this smacked of a directed attack against the whole idea of climate change and likely was a paid exploit.

Who would have the most to gain here?

Would a nation state seek to quash the argument?

Interesting timing with this whole Copenhagen climate summit going on no?

I have to wonder if we will ever really know…
