The fight over global warming science is about to cross the Atlantic with a U.S. researcher poised to sue NASA, demanding release of the same kind of climate data that has landed a leading British center in hot water over charges it skewed its data.

Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said NASA has refused for two years to provide information under the Freedom of Information Act that would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

"I assume that what is there is highly damaging," Mr. Horner said. "These guys are quite clearly bound and determined not to reveal their internal discussions about this."

The numbers matter. Under pressure in 2007, NASA recalculated its data and found that 1934, not 1998, was the hottest year in its records for the contiguous 48 states. NASA later changed that data again, and now 1998 and 2006 are tied for first, with 1934 slightly cooler. ... link (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/dec/03/researcher-says-nasa-hiding-climate-data/)

This is not going to slowdown anytime soon. The more people try to spin it, the deeper other people will look in to it and find out the depth of the scam. The main stream media, by their own silence, is driving the growth of other news sources. In the end most credibility will be lost for those who work in grant supported research and by the MSM.

The story is awfully light on the content - but keep on jumping to those conclusions!

It is you who are jumping to conclusions. You've seem to already concluded that the scientists in question did what they did for good reasons, although neither you nor they can tell us what those reason are.

You truly are a man of faith in the religion of AGW.

Kinda like how AGW proponents are light on facts but still keep pumping out predictions that continue to fall flat? :rolleyes:
