which is why everyone should welcome this:
If Rep. Smith can’t prove his charge, he’ll be well and truly exposed. If he can, Karl and NOAA will be. So no matter how anyone feels about these issues, all honest people should welcome this inquiry. About the only bad thing I can see is if the results turn out inconclusive; a “he said - she said.” The best thing that can happen is a smoking gun, no matter which way it points. Either “I fudged the numbers on cue” or “Let’s lie and say he fudged.”
Regardless, I submit we are all better off getting one of those futures well and truly proven. There's either something rotten in Denmark or there's not. We all need to know which.
