Just in case you’ve been wondering what’s going on in the US of A re: climate gate….
NASA has had multiple FOIA requests for its climate data. They, too, have refused to honor them. (Wasn’t it the Dems who put together the whole FOIA infrastructure? Just checking.)
Now some folks are getting upset, and threatening to sue NASA under FOIA if it doesn’t release its data by year-end.
This should be interesting. Either NASA has real data supporting the CRU fake data, which means CRU is totally incompetent and can’t even read a thermometer… or NASA, too, has been, uh.. umm…. ahh.. manipulating it’s taxpayer-funded data, as well…
.. and of course, this would be ALL OVER THE NEWS.. right?… RIGHT!?!
There is simply NO WAY that NASA temperature data can be at-odds with CRU data UNLESS NASA, TOO, IS LYING.
Remember the “Hockey-stick” diagram? The one Al Gore and his folks use to scare the world about the mythology of Anthropogenic Global Warming? The graph that shows enormous warming whether you feed temperature data – or random numbers into it? Yeah – that diagram? It was built by a NASA guy named Hansen. He’s the guy who started all this now-billion-dollar nonsense. What’s he doing now?
Hansen, who began the climate scare some two decades ago, was caught fudging the numbers again in declaring October 2008 the warmest on record. This despite the fact that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years.

Science: For two years, our space agency has refused Freedom of Information requests on why it has repeatedly corrected its climate figures. A leading researcher threatens to sue to find more inconvenient truths.
What’s become known as “Climate-Gate” may be about to explode on this side of the pond as well. Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, has threatened a lawsuit against NASA if by year-end the agency doesn’t honor his FOI requests for information on how and why its climate numbers have been consistently adjusted for errors.
“I assume that what is there is highly damaging,” says Horner, who suspects, based on the public record, the same type of data fudging, manipulation and suppression that has occurred at Britain’s East Anglia Climate Research Unit. “These guys (NASA) are quite clearly determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this.”

Gee – it’s interesting how anti-religion the Left is when AGW is nothing but a belief system totally unuspported by any facts… and when their high priests are cheating all the time to make it look like there’s a problem. If these guys actrually believed climate change was a problem, they’d be honest aboiut the climate data, right?
This isn’t about climate… like healthcare, it is about government control over your lives. Those that don’t believe this simply aren’t paying attention, and ascribing too much honesty to the Left. Time to wake up!
This is from AGW proponent Steven chneider of Stanford in 1989:
“To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts we may have. Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”
Choose “between being effective and being honest”!? Oh, yeah… I’ll believe anyone using that kind of language, how about YOU?
But Obama and Pelosi will tax YOU for trillions of dollars and millions of lost jobs because of this mythology….
