    When NASA and the NOAA obey the FOIA requests for the raw data they've been stonewalling for the last eight years or so, please let us know.

    Until then, nothing they say nor any of their conclusions means squat.

    MM is the decider.

    Might as well give up if he disagrees.

    Those requests are for private correspondance from the conspriracy dingbats, and are justly denied. They are not request for the data.

    NASA reports hottest November on record, 2009 poised to be second hottest year, Hansen predicts better than 50% chance 2010 will set new record Climate Progress

    NASA reports hottest November on record, 2009 poised to be second hottest year, Hansen predicts better than 50% chance 2010 will set new record
    Must-read Hansen: "I am now inundated with broad FOIA requests for my correspondence, with substantial impact on my time and on others in my office. I believe these to be fishing expeditions, aimed at finding some statement(s), likely to be taken out of context, which they would attempt to use to discredit climate science.... The input data for global temperature analyses are widely available, on our web site and elsewhere. If those input data could be made to yield a significantly different global temperature change, contrarians would certainly have done that -- but they have not."

    What we have here is a bunch of liars trying to justify their lies by finding anything that they can take out of context and trumpet.

    They are requests for ALL relevant documents, the raw data included.

    FOIA requests are only justified when you say they are?

    LOL. Ol' Midnight has well proven his ignorance and inability to fathom even the most basic concepts of science here many times.

    Just another willfully ignorant troll.

    You continue to lie.

    That's your main stock in trade however.

    The raw data is on the net right now. Always has been. If they are unable to access it, that is because Watts that the rest are just stupid asses.

    This attempt to de-legitimize science is simply another way for the right wing nuts to continue their avid support of Chavez, the Saudi's, and the other petro-dictators. Seems like Midnight and the rest have never met a dictator they did not love to give money to.

    Private correspondance is not revelant. And why should working scientists be subjected to this kind of harrassment? The data is out there, let these energy company whores look it up like the rest of us.
