This thing called "leak"

A couple of weeks ago, emails from CRU at East Anglia were hacked.  Although those of us in the right side (as opposed to left or wrong?) of the issue of AGW have the distinct feeling that these emails were leaked, not hacked.  A few days into the Dopenhagen "last chance" conference on climate change, again, a leak.

A leak of a draft text for a possible agreemant has infuriated many of the developing countries who feel that they will not again get what they have been seeking:  the moolah to fight against climate change.  Or, they are furious that the right-side is again right (hehe):  nothing-doing in Copenhagen.  We told you so.

The Guardian,
reports, among other things that the agreement will:

• Force developing countries to agree to specific emission cuts and measures that were not part of the original UN agreement;

• Divide poor countries further by creating a new category of developing countries called "the most vulnerable";

• Weaken the UN's role in handling climate finance;

• Not allow poor countries to emit more than 1.44 tonnes of carbon per person by 2050, while allowing rich countries to emit 2.67 tonnes.

Oh well, feels good, really good.
