A climategate link, with a lot to read http://wattsupwiththat.com/climategate/
As this: "John Pittman has found some interesting science in the Climategate emails: The treeline is an sensitive treemometer, since it is very sharply defined, a few kilometers broad. Trees grow, just barely, south of the treeline, they entirely fail to grow north of the treeline. During the Medieval climatic optimum 750-1450 trees grew north of the present day treeline, indicating that the medieval climatic optimum was warmer than today in the north. During the past century, 1897 to present, there has been no movement in the treeline, indicating no twentieth century warming in the north, none."
A good video at Nasas site with Richard B. Alley, http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm09/lectures/lecture_videos/A23A.shtml but long. There are so many facts I must study it carefully. Maybe the conclusions are not the right ones?
He works at Penn. State Univ. Speciality, relationships between Earth's cryosphere and global climate change. Alley was invited to testify about climate change by Vice President Al Gore, in 2003 by the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, and again before the U.S. House Committee on Science and Technology in 2007. Alley's most recent testimony was due to his current role as a lead author of "Chapter 4: Observations: Changes in Snow, Ice and Frozen Ground" for the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. He has participated in the joint UN/WMO panel since 1992, having been a contributing author to both the second and third IPCC assessment reports.
He also works at NASA as is seen in NASA Science Update Panelists Biographies
In the above site: The Climate Pool: NASA ends seven-year itch over carbon emissions
"The US space agency has just released seven years of carbon emissions data that link rapidly accelerated global warming to increased humidity, a move well-timed to quell growing controversy about data connected to global warming.
As world leaders prepared to meet Friday in Copenhagen at the end of two weeks of slow negotiations on climate change, NASA researchers in Pasadena, California, said late Tuesday that the data on carbon dioxide had been ”extensively validated”.
The data was collected by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA’s Aqua spacecraft. It measures carbon dioxide concentrations 5 to 12 kilometres above Earth’s surface and tracks its movement, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said.
Andrew Dessler, a climate scientist at Texas A&M University, said AIRS observations confirmed climate model predictions that as the climate warms, the atmosphere would become more humid, thus more than doubling the warming effect of increased carbon dioxide.
”The implication of these studies is that, should greenhouse gas emissions continue on their current course of increase, we are virtually certain to see Earth’s climate warm by several degrees Celsius in the next century unless some strong negative feedback mechanism emerges elsewhere in Earth’s climate system,” Dessler said in a NASA statement.
NASA did not say why it chose this particular time to release its seven years of data."
My comment: Another physist (Lubos Motl) got the figure 0,0001 degree warmer. That is just nothing. Who is right?
A look at Google on 'climategate NASA' get 245000 hits. Among others:

NASA hiding climate data, would show how the agency has shaped its climate data and would explain why the agency has repeatedly had to correct its data going as far back as the 1930s.

How damaging is “Climategate” to NASA?, In this case the stakes could hardly be bigger: a gigantic environmental catastrophe, or not, trillions of dollars, and a huge shift in global political power. NASA has been using its considerable public outreach and information resources to present the AGW story as if it was fully settled science.
A comparison between the 1988 global mean temperature projections shown by James Hansen in his 1988 congressional testimony and the subsequent observations. One scenario, no increase at all.
A comment: Who the hell knows whats going on . Maybe its that government project up in alaska called haarp it is a weather modification weapon. Governor Jessie Ventura did a show about it so did the son of a the late honorable senator of Alaska Nick Begick.
I think this is enough for now.
