Will Al Gore Film a Retraction?
Interesting stuff. NASA has silently updated its yearly average surface temperature data; 1998 is no longer the warmest year on record, 1934 now holds that honor. 1998 is the second warmest year and 1931 is the third warmest. In fact, 5 of the 10 hottest years occurred before 1945. Why NASA updated its records is an interesting aside. Steve McIntyre, a climate data fact checker inquired with NASA climatologists (including James Hansen - a prominant climate change theorist) how they arrived at their data. Hansen and NASA refused to provide the calculations, so McIntyre walked back the data to determine for himself how it was calculated. Noticing that the data looked suspect for the years 2000 onward, McIntyre brought his findings to the attention of NASA. Interestingly, NASA has now updated its temperature record data with what one has to assume are corrected figures. More on the story is here.

Will mainstream media and biased documentarians update their climate change assertions in light of the revised data? Or will dinosaur media continue to demonize those who dissent from the dominant climate change fearmongering? Given that prominant preachers of climate change fear relied on the NASA data to buttress their arguments, will they offer corrections as loudly as when they proffered the initial claims? If Al Gore tells us to trust the data, and then the data changes in a direction that weakens his argument, is Al Gore and the like to be trusted re: their claims?

No matter how hysterical the Climate Change Pushers shout to the contrary, the science is not settled.
