Suing NASA for Withheld Climate Data: Climategate

Climategate continues (thank goodness our awful news media can't completely bury it) and we see that even NASA is in on the scam (Dr. Hansen proved that long ago). Do you see, sheep? There are thousands of scientists out there who've been STRAINING AND BEGGING to be heard above the "consensus" mantra, but they've been shut out by an overzealous establishment.

Question: Exactly what figure constitutes a "consensus"?

I have a figure of >31,000 petition-signing, skeptical scientists (see, which in my opinion is a fairly big number (not a "few" fringe scientists as our news media portrays such skeptics). I've yet to hear how many scientists are in this magical, unassailable "consensus," but I doubt it's much higher than 31,000.

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.
