UK based Climategate 2 blogger has computers seized in police search

Question: Why have six police officers from the Metropolitan Police and Norfolk Constabulary searched a property and seized the computers and DSL router of a blogger for reporting the leak of the Climategate 2 emails, in order to clone his hard drives and inspect them, if he is not a suspect?

    One theory in comments on WUWT is that they are looking for the password for the block of encrypted emails included with WUWT.

    No chance.

    The UEA, DECC, the US Dept. of Justice and the Fuzz all KNOW what’s in those encrypted emails!

    Or maybe looking for clues to the ID of FOIA?

    Some worried people around, high up in the trees?
    Those e-mails, in the unreleased, encrypted folder might have some really juicy bits to them, not just items about petty rivalries between scientists, items showing the lack of honesty and openess in the institutions surrounding the climatology arena.

    You’ve answered your own question, AM.

    Update on WUWT says that Rog Tallbloke is NOT a suspect.

    Also that warrant linked to above by Shevva also lists noconsensus and climateaudit.

    The pogrom of climate sceptics has started.

    I’ve had experience with this kind of thing.

    I can’t see it ending well.

    Richard is right – we need to find a way to stand together more effectively against these kind of actions:

    If this gets to the point that it needs expensive legal attention, then I suggest you raise a request for funds. I’m not affluent, and my contribution will be small, but I shall give what I can afford. The cops need to be put back into their box.

    It isn’t about the emails, the password or the “hacker”. Yes, everybody knows the remaining emails will incriminate the government figures who knew and encouraged the scam.

    It is about intimidating Bloggers, and if we are not very careful it might work.
