Russian Security Services: Behind Climategate?

The story is surfacing that Russian security services possibly hacked into the server at the University of East Anglia's Hadley Center shows that the world is not uniform in its march toward global governance. The height of irony would be if the authoritarian government had actually struck a blow for truth and freedom by coordinating the hack, while the hacks in the American press continued their lying propaganda campaign. Such absurdity is the norm in the upside-down world under President Barack Obama.

Even if the story turns out to be untrue, the Russian government runs a generally nationalist petrostate longing for the halcyon days when it was feared and loathed the world over. States like Russia and China are great power chauvinists who want to dominate the world, not cut carbon emissions in order to save drowning polar bears. These power-hungry global players would only support a global climate change treaty with the wink and a nod that it would only hurt the West and one way or another they would be exempt from it. The Newsbusters story is below:

British newspapers reported Sunday that the e-mail messages involved in the growing ClimateGate scandal may have been leaked to the world by the Russian secret service.

The alleged motive is to undermine any calls for carbon dioxide emissions cuts out of the upcoming climate change conference in Copenhagen:

Russia – one of the world’s largest producers and users of oil and gas – has a vested interest in opposing sweeping new agreements to cut emissions, which will be discussed by world leaders in Copenhagen tomorrow.

As reported by the Daily Mail:

Suspicions were growing last night that Russian security services were behind the leaking of the notorious British ‘Climategate’ emails which threaten to undermine tomorrow’s Copenhagen global warming summit.

An investigation by The Mail on Sunday has discovered that the explosive hacked emails from the University of East Anglia were leaked via a small web server in the formerly closed city of Tomsk in Siberia. [Continued]

It's a rare moment when my position and that of KGB thugs coincide.
