The very idea that critics would have to use the Freedom of Information Act to pry back-up data from a scientist on a matter of great public importance is insane. That data should have been out there years ago, without anyone having to ask. If it’s considered ‘normal’ in climate science for researchers to keep their raw data under lock and key, and refuse to subject it to skeptical and hostile review, then climate science isn’t science.
Walter Russell Mead
It's ironic that the Goddard Institute of Space Studies is part of the climate scandal as Mr. Goddard was one of the worst offenders I know regarding a closed scientific shop. I'll post something soon about his troubles.
