The "Climategate" scandal, which broke in November 2009, revealed what many skeptics had privately suspected. Prominent climate scientists at the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit (CRU) had collaborated to keep data out of skeptics' hands, subverted the peer review process, and used questionable methods to construct the temperature record on which the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel Climate Change (IPCC) based its recommendations.
Now a new "Climategate" scandal is emerging, this time based on documents released by NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in response to several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suits filed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). The newly released emails further demonstrate the politicized nature of climate science, revealing a number of questionable practices that cast doubt on the credibility of scientific data provided by NASA.

Barbara Boxer said that our gold standard of evidence was NASA, not the tainted East Anglia numbers...
“In my opening statement, I didnt quote one international scientist or IPCC report. We are quoting the American scientific community here.”
Having NASA publically revealed as an academic cheat will not help it retain funding for the future. I guess they never considered that. Great leadership and great science conspire to achieve mediocrity.

Well, knock me over with a feather...
So, Dr. James hansen - NASA’s in house Gorbal Warming ‘authority’ said 2005 was the warmest year in a century. But the warmest year was 1934, according to NASA data.

Oh, you say you are not a friend of Dr. James Hansen? Hmmn, neither am I - HAAKAA PAALE! ! !
the problem with Hansen is that he doesn’t know where to stick his thermometer. I have an idea...http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2435273/posts
Hansen can’t put his thermometer where you imply. Why not? ‘Cause his head is already there.
