An Attitude of Gratitude


An Attitude of Gratitude

If a certain Congressman who happens to be Chair of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology as well as a climate change denier gets his way, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will be turning over all the emails it reviewed in a climate change study that resulted in a published paper in the peer-reviewed journal, Science (June 2015).

The research studied global warming trends by reviewing data sets. The NOAA scientists concluded that the earth’s surface temperature has increased slightly, and that warming trends over the last couple decades were actually quite a bit higher than originally thought, a study that global warming naysayers are not so happy about. So the subpoenas are flying, and despite mountains of documents already supplied by NOAA in response to the requests, Congress wants more, including all the scientists’ emails discussing the subject. To date, NOAA has said read my lips, no more info, but the tug of war is not over and it’s anybody’s guess where it will end.  Chill out here…
