Following are details on the entries we received for the Arrest the Crimatologist contest to spread information about the Climategate scandal. Links to details about the action have been provided wherever possible.
The response to this contest was overwhelming and the results were as impressive as they are varied. The recent acknowledgement by the UK Information Commissioner that the crimatologists broke the law is a vindication of the premise of this contest and this admission would never have happened if the activists and concerned citizens represented here had not gotten involved. A great thank you goes out to all those who participated.
Congratulations to the winners, who will receive a signed copy of James Corbett's forthcoming book, Reportage, as soon as it's released. The winning entries were announced on Episode 115 of The Corbett Report podcast released Sunday, January 31, 2010.

Ebenezer from Australia sent a scurrilous ditty entitled "RIP Global Warming:"
RIP Global Warming
Sorry 2B such a pain but there's things the alarmists can't explain
They say it's for the poor but look at Al Gore Making more money than he ever did before
Greenhouse CO2 helps plants grow but does not add heat
Glass panels achieve that feat
Why no boiling greenhouses, with CO2 three times more than normal air?
The ABC won't answer my question:
I don't think that's fair
Oil companies own more than just oil,they own lots of green stuff, too
They want to charge more to me and you
Peak Oil completes the lie
Your super and the ETS
Where it goes is anyone's guess
Climate activists are not amused
When they're told they're being used
What about the antarctic icecaps that grew
And burst a pompous windbag or two?
Climate Change Advisor: Dream career of every halfwit wastrel
On every local council
I think I am detecting
More and more believers are defecting
Now we've got Climategate
Shout it out loud, don't hesitate!
The theory's old;it's got some mange
RIP Global Warming-I mean, er, Climate Change!
