Does the US Matter?

After NASA was forced to restate its US temperature data downward, James Hansen argued that the US doesn't matter.  After it was observed that long-term temperature measurement is flawed in South America and Africa, James Hansen agreed and argued that South America and Africa don't matter.  Since oceans cover 75% of the globe and we have no long-term temperature record for these oceans or for Antarctica, I ask the question at Climate Skeptic:  What does matter?

    You know very well that what matters is what THEY say matters.

    Hansen no longer matters, and if NASA doesn't start using asbestos joint sealant and Freon foam blowing agent NASA might not matter.
