Blogger Forces NASA to Tweak Climate Data [FOX News]

In a little reported event outside of scientific communities was made public by the Fox News Channel in an on air and online report entitled Blogger Forces NASA to Tweak Climate Data.

From the Article:
A NASA research department has admitted that the calculations it used to show an increase in U.S. temperatures were flawed, after a campaign by an amateur meteorologist using his blog.

Climatologists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York have been forced to revise estimates after research by Stephen MacIntyre, who published his findings on his Climate Audit blog.

As a result of his calculations, which he e-mailed to NASA, scientists at the agency now say that 1934, not 1998, was the warmest year in the United States since records began to be kept in 1880.

It's a shame when data is purposefully skewed to reflect agenda instead of Scientific Truth.

I have submitted this story to /.
