Now is it NASA-GISSgate?

Judicial Watch (Promoting Integrity, Transparency and Accountability in Government, Politics and the Law) have obtained Records of NASA-GISS’s internal correspondence. Hot on the heals of ClimateGate, HimalayaGate etc do we have another "gate" here? (22/4)
"Records of NASA’s internal correspondence surrounding this controversy were obtained in a partial response to a FOIA request filed in December 2009 by Judicial Watch. This month, NASA officials informed Judicial Watch that the remaining documents responsive to our request have been posted online at the NASA GISS website."

Interesting! For example, to avoid the UHI effect, the Chinese Meteorological Administration keep moving measuring implements:

My biggest worry is China. CMA don’t measure at airports, and they keep moving suburban locations a few more miles out as the cities expand. I was there a month ago to give some talks. I’ve sent them all the CRU data for China, in the hope that they will reciprocate at some point and send me their adjusted data. (for site moves, but not urban influences). They are doing some reasonable work, but not seeing the big picture…

The big picture being that the Alarmists want to Alarm.
