Hard questions.

It seems that the Committee on Energy and Commerce is interested in global warming, specifically asking Mann et. al. [1998] about the data and methodology between their “hockey stick” curve. Among other things they want to know this:

According to The Wall Street Journal, you have declined to release the exact computer code you used to generate your results. (a) Is this correct? (b) What policy on sharing research and methods do you follow? (c) What is the source of that policy? (d) Provide this exact computer code used to generate your results.

I’ve often thought it odd that answers to those very questions have never been demanded before.

Tip of the hat to Kate McMillan at the Western Standard.
