Raw Data and Concerned Scientists
By Jay Jones


July 07, 2006

Ms. Mareck's smugness aside,there are many excellent sources for raw climate data. There are many interpretations of the data also.There are also data that seems to never get widespread coverage in the media, along with accompaning interpretations by highly respected scientists. People like Fredick Seitz, Past President of The National Academy of Sciences, Professor Emeritus, Rockefeller University (whuda thunk?). A good starting place would be the footnotes in Micheal Crichton's book "State of Fear". Also sites such as from the Oregon Institute of Science and Medcine contain raw data as well as reasoned analysis. It also conains a link to the La Jolla Petition. One might also check out, the site for the George Marshall Institute. And there is always N.O.A.A. And those Greenland ice core samples which show that around 40,000 years ago the Earth's annual average temperature increased by as much as 10 degrees F within 50 years. I'm not sure why none of this stuff makes it to the Wall Street Journal or the New York Times.
