Police investigating serial hackers stealing and posting emails between climate researchers raided the home and confisctaed the computer of at least climate denier’s home this week:
(ClimateCrocks) — On Wednesday, detectives from Norfolk Constabulary entered the home of Roger Tattersall, who writes a climate sceptic blog under the pseudonym TallBloke, and took away two laptops and a broadband router. A police spokeswoman confirmed on Thursday that Norfolk Constabulary had “executed a search warrant in West Yorkshire and seized computers”. She added: “No one was arrested. Investigations into the [UEA] data breach and publication [online of emails] continues. This is one line of enquiry in a Norfolk constabulary investigation which started in 2009.”
Detectives are being tight-lipped about what they hope to find. But the upshot is that while this particular blogger probably played no role in the robbery, his computers and router may contain info leading to those who did.
It will be very interesting if the identity of those responsible comes to light. Follow the money and chain of custody could lead to some inconvenient truths and my guess is the perps and anyone involved with them are deeply worried right about now.
