Time For A Redo

Fox News is reporting that there is to be a redo of climate data.

At a meeting on Monday of about 150 climate scientists, representatives of Britain’s weather office quietly proposed that the world’s climatologists start all over again to produce a new trove of global temperature data that is open to public scrutiny and “rigorous” peer review.
Isn't that supposed to be how science is done? Yes it is. Ah. But they still have a few surprises in store. Check this out:
The Hadley stonewall began to crumble after a gusher of leaked e-mails revealed climate scientists, including the center’s chief, Phil Jones, discussing how to keep controversial climate data out of the hands of the skeptics, keep opposing scientific viewpoints out of peer-reviewed scientific journals, and bemoaning that their climate models failed to account for more than a decade of stagnation in global temperatures. Jones later revealed that key temperature datasets used in Hadley’s predictions had been lost, and could not be retrieved for verification.
No data. Well that is bad.

But how about this for a capper:
Then, in a last defense of its old ways, the Met proposals argues says that its old datasets “are adequate for answering the pressing 20th Century questions of whether climate is changing and if so how.
So no data is good enough to make a case in the 20th Century but for the 21st Century such an oversight will just not do. That kind of thinking puts my mind totally at ease.

H/T Watts Up With That

INDOOR CLIMATE - AIR QUALITY - IS AS IMPORTANT AS OUTDOOR CLIMATE - AIR QUALITY
so WHY is the U.S. Navy allowing women on submarines?
I'm a woman and I am horrified because
PLEASE DON'T BE MAD AT ME FOR SAYING THIS, BUT
how are you going to clear the air on an underwater submarine when women are wearing tampax and pads and the blood, as it dries, turns to gas......
seriously,
have you ever smelled the gas smell arising from dried menstrual blood?
you know that on duty, a woman will not be able to change her pad or tampax but on a schedule, which means she'll be wearing one with dried blood at any given time of the month, and the dried blood will emit gas into the air,
METHANE?
ON A SUBMARINE?
YOU CALL THAT AIR QUALITY?
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE BE HONEST ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE AND AIR
QUALITY ON A SUBMERGED SUBMARINE FULL OF WOMEN?

Submarines have extensive air quality monitoring eqpt and air scrubbers.

I have no doubt what so ever that the Navy has considered this and addressed the issue.
