+ - Climategate fallout - climate data integrity bill

Submitted by radioweather
radioweather (1088475) writes "Senator David Vitter's office has just released the draft of Senate Bill 4015, the Public Access to Historical Records Act. This comes due to some years long Freedom of Information reticence on the part of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies The bill if passed, will ensure that climate data from NOAA and NASA get rigorous quality control and would force NASA and NOAA's National Climatic Data Center to release the raw temperature data, sans adjustments to the US historical temperature record, and then compile a new historic official U.S. temperature record that would be compiled under NASA supervision but under a council of appointed meteorologists and statisticians. The goal is for the U.S. to have the best, most transparent historic temperature record in the world."
