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.Incidentally, this article reports on the recent grilling of Obama administation officials over Climategate. Jane Lubchenco, a marine biologist and climate researcher who heads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, dismissed the controversy. But how could she dismiss the scandal given that Climategate has shown IPCC's integrity to be hopelessly compromised? Upon what does she base her claims?
"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 e-mails don't negate or even deal with data from both NOAA and NASA, which keep independent climate records and show dramatic warming, Lubchenco told members of the House global warming committee.
