The European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) has been the target of an Internet attack.
The German climate science skeptic site was shut down earlier this morning by a “bot attack”. EIKE has issued the following statement:
Our website http://www.eike-klima-energie.eu has been shut down since this morning by a very specialized Internet attack. The breach of safety has been identified and works to solve the problems are now proceeding at full speed. However, our budget is very limited and they are burdening our weak financial situation. We are supported only through contributions from members and private donations. This is why we are issuing an urgent request: Please support us with a donation via Paypal using the button on the right side of our website or via a bank transfer (see details below), or visit here: http://www.eike-klima-energie.eu/impressum/.
EIKE is an official charity organization and is thus able to provide you with a tax-deductible receipt. We hope that we will be back online tomorrow to provide you further with interesting news.
Vice President EIKE (European Institute for Climate and Energy) e.V.

A few months ago, NTZ also had a similar problem. Some people just can’t stand hearing other opinions.
