    Michigan State University Joins NOAA in Satellitegate Cover Up by John O'Sullivan, guest post at Climate Realists | Climate Realists

    I wonder if climate scientists use this data? I bet some do.

    The data and facts may be corrupted but the Theory that Mankind is warming the planet still stands

    ahhhh....that makes sense.

    but wait!

    do you think that the problems with NOAA17 and NOAA18 could have contributed to the poor decision to keep a poorly functioning NOAA16 (they were first informed in 2004) online until public outcry made them do something about it in 2010?

    perhaps NOAA should have told its customers to take their business elsewhere until things were sorted out.

    Old Rocks- do you think that there is any chance that half a decade's worth of iffy data has had any effect on global temperature measurement or the results of computer climate models?

    I sure hope Old Rocks is right about the massive redundancy and wonderful accuracy for the satellite tracking of earth. But there seems to be a few unpublicized problems.
