So, what do you do when you’re convinced that you’ve got the data to prove that global warming/cooling/climate change is real, and is caused by humans? You release it to the world; you shout it from the rooftops and you preach it from the highest hill. You have proved the theory, you have closed the argument: you’d tell everybody.
Or, in point of fact, you’d hide it, and get defensive if anybody asks for it.
We have 25 or so years invested in the work. Why should I make the data available to you, when your aim is to try and find something wrong with it.
Because, sir, the point of science is that it is checked, and that something is not considered proven until it has been peer reviewed. That’s how it works. And if it’s not being released, then you’d need to have a good reason for it, otherwise people are going to assume that you’re not releasing it because it doesn’t actually say what you say it does.
