In fact, the insistence of people at RealClimate on the fact that to
hack e-mail msgs is illegal, or at least "unethical", sounds a little
defensive to me and not very compatible with the claim that the leak
is a hoax or a fabrication...

"Supression of dissenting voices on man-made climate change" may speak
books on the people and organisations involved, but does not really
tell us much on the possible truth and reasons of climate change.
Even though I am a lawyer and more into politics and humanities than
into hard sciences and mathematics,
I suspect that no amount of sociological study, cultural criticism
forensic investigation or journalistic analyses of vested interests
can take the place of substantive, fundamental research as far as the
merits of such scientific, factual issues are concerned.
