It is really disappointing when employees of a reputable scientific institution like NASA lowers itself to data manipulation to fit an unproven theory. It is even more disappointing when that institution muddies the reputation of the whole organisation for the sake of protecting these few reckless, selfish individuals.
This is the situation with the ongoing scientific debacle associated with the global warming theory, the cooling world and the climategate revelations. As NASA employees continue to be exposed as manipulating the climate data then the science world is watching to see what those in charge do.
Will NASA and the University of East Anglia and Penn State University go down in history in infamy as institutions that didn’t have the credibility, transparency and accountability to ensure science within their confines was factual, open to audit and debate or will these ‘businesses’ simply become bywords for whitewashing and political expediency.
