According to Senator Barbara Boxer the real crime with the recent emails from University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit which seem to shed new light on global warming is.... the alleged thefts of these emails.
According to “The Hill.com- "You call it 'Climategate'; I call it 'E-mail-theft-gate,'" she said during a committee meeting. "Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I'm looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public."
I guess the good news here is that she is at least looking at the emails. As the the top Democrat on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee it seems to be the least she can do.
Also according to “The Hill.com- "We may well have a hearing on this, we may not. We may have a briefing for senators, we may not," Boxer said. "Part of our looking at this will be looking at a criminal activity which could have well been coordinated. "This is a crime," Boxer said.
I just wonder what part of this issue is the crime Senator Boxer? Is it the alleged hacked emails? Does anyone else wonder if it could just be a whistle blower? Or is the REAL crime that data was destroyed to strengthen a case for global warming?
