DOE must release climate data

Jerome J. Schmitt
Imagine if the NIH sponsored research at Yale Medical School, and then the federal agency allowed the professors to decide that the clinical data was proprietary, withheld from the public indefinitely on behalf of the university and its pharmaceutical interests.  Further, the pharmaceutical interests claimed that the withheld data REQUIRED world governments to adopt its costly prescriptions for world health - saying "trust us, you just have to take our word for it". The liberal outcry would be enormous.  Yet substitute DOE for NIH, University of East Anglia for Yale, climate for clinical, and global warming alarmists' for pharmaceutical -- that is exactly the situation reported here.

Since this situation is favored by liberals, the DOE expects the MSM to cover for them.  The Department's strategy as reported by FOX News is to  "stonewall" until the controversy dies down.  We cannot let this happen.
