And the bunkum continues

 

The science is settled, Barry: we're liars, and the public's too damn dumb to catch us at it. Sooee!

The science is settled, Barry: we’re liars, and the public’s too damn dumb to catch us at it. Sooee!

After falsely claiming that July, 2012 was the hottest month since the beginning of the world (well, 1895, actually – records don’t go beyond that,but neither does the collective memory of the global warmists – NOAA has now conceded that in fact July, 1936 was hotter. This data manipulation has ben going on since NOAA joined in the global warming scam, and the lying is not limited to our government’s “objective scientists”. In fact, the hottest decade since 1895 was the 30s, and the earth has been cooling since then. But that would be an inconvenient truth for the bunkum artists.

“Goddard shows how, in recent years, NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been ‘adjusting’ its record by replacing real temperatures with data ‘fabricated’ by computer models,” writes Christopher Booker for the Telegraph.

“The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data,” Booker writes. “In several posts headed ‘Data tampering at USHCN/GISS,’ Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time.”

“These show that the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph, nearly half of it based on ‘fabricated’ data, shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than 3 degrees centigrade per century,” Booker adds.

When asked about climate data adjustments by the DCNF back in April, NOAA send there have been “several scientific developments since 1989 and 1999 that have improved the understanding of the U.S. surface temperature record.”

Our current government is attempting to shut down the First World’s economy, transfer wealth in the trillions to the poor of the earth and condemn Americans and western Europeans to a return of the peasant existence of their ancestors, and justifies this reversion to the middle ages by cooking up phony data. So far, a slight majority of Americans has bought into the plan – that’s changing, and exposure of fraudulent science like this will hasten the process; or I hope so – the idea of living in a cave gnawing on sticks and dirt repels me.

UPDATE: Oops! Another disruption of the “settled science”: Gigantic ocean vortexes may force changes to climate models. When the authorities cut off debate, especially scientific debate, it’s a safe bet that they’re up to something.

Tell us something new

Prehistoric Swiss villagers display their catch

Prehistoric Swiss villagers display their catch

Study concludes that things were warmer in Roman, medieval times.

If you think the Earth is hot now, try wearing plate armor in the Middle Ages.

A Swedish study found that the planet was warmer in [the Roman era] and the Middle Ages than today, challenging the mainstream idea that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming.

The study, by scientist Leif Kullman, analyzed 455 “radiocarbon-dated mega-fossils” in the Scandes mountains and found that tree lines for different species of trees were higher during the Roman and Medieval times than they are today. Not only that, but the temperatures were higher as well.

All other things being equal, adding more greenhouse gases to the atmosphere will have a warming effect on the planet,” Judith Curry, a climatologist at the Georgia Institute of Technology, told the Los Angeles Times. “However, all things are never equal, and what we are seeing is natural climate variability dominating over human impact.

At least as far back as 2005 (and actually, far earlier) scientists were discovering entire prehistoric villages in the Swiss Alps as glaciers retreated: The Alps had far less ice from 5,000 – 850 BC., then froze up again until Roman Times and stayed open through the medieval period. 

None of this is news to the scientific community; all of it is ignored and suppressed, however. The science is settled, alright: the earth’s temperature fluctuates over time, independent of human activity.

Are sea levels really rising?

Dennis Savageau's vision for 521 Round Hill Road

Dennis Savageau’s vision for 521 Round Hill Road

Not around here; not much. Mike Finkbeiner recently was hired by NYC to compare the 1811 sea level to now. His conclusion? High tide then was 4′ over mean low, 4.73 feet higher now.

In 1811 the Commissioner’s of the City of New York laid out the street grid system, and established an extensive series of elevation monuments at corner intersections, based on high tide of the era at zero.   EarthImage was asked to calibrate that system in relation to the modern determination of tidal level and land elevations.   Our conclusion was that the City Elevation Zero of 1811, now known as Manhattan Borough Datum, is 4.03 ft over modern mean lower low tide (the average daily low from 1978 to 2001.)  As the daily high today is 4.73 ft higher than that, one can speculate that tides have risen 0.70 feet (8.4 inches) since 1811.

What’s going on (I say, not Finkbeiner) is that the gummint is changing the methodology to achieve its political goals. Here in Greenwich, Diane Fox, Katie Blankley Deluca (whose father is now on our BET) and Denise Savageu, the triad responsible for forcing residents from their homes, are only too willing to go along with that process.

The science is unsettled

What happened to the hurricane season? It was a complete bust, despite dire predictions from the “experts”.

Over here on the rationalist side we’ve always thought that weather was weather and questions about long term warming were an entirely different matter. But in the Church of Gaia, every weather phenomenon is global warming – related, if it’s bad, and unrelated if it’s good. So when Al Gore, among other profiteers, states that global warming is directly responsible for the severity and frequency of hurricanes, it’s fair to point out this season’s lack of storms as a direct contradiction, indeed disproof of what he and his media friends claim are settled truths.

Same thing for tornadoes, which the media promised would be horrendous this year because of global warming,then completely dropped the subject when the tornadoes disappeared.

Storms and hurricanes will be back and when they are, Al Gore and company will be too.

Al Gore lives his beliefs

Don't your DARE do this to me!

Don’t your DARE do this to me!

You’d think that as the world’s expert on global warming the man would cheer on those who want to shut down the world’s economy and stop further production of CO2, so it is at first blush confusing that he’s so angry about it instead. Here he is just a few days ago:

“Why does partisanship have anything to do with such a despicable and dishonorable threat to the integrity of the United States of America?  It cannot be allowed. But it can only be stopped if people in both parties independents as well say, ‘look, I might not agree with everything that’s in the Affordable Care Act, but it did pass, it was upheld by the Supreme Court, it is the law of the land. You didn’t succeed in the constitutional process by which this was considered, and now you want to threaten to not only shut down our government, but blow up the world economy?….How dare you! How dare you!”

But no, his anger is really just proof that he truly believes what he’s been saying since 2006, when he promised that the world would cross an irreversible barrier in 2016 if we didn’t stop our wicked ways. Irreversible means it can’t be undone, and now, eight years on from his science is settled pronouncement, it’s obvious that nothing has been done or can be done in the next 24 months to avoid terminal catastrophe. It’s over, baby.

So no wonder the guy’s pissed: he wants to spend the declining days of the earth in the luxury to which he’s become accustomed to since discovering the profitability of Cassandraism, and anything that threatens his 110′ houseboats, his private jets and his 15,000 sq.ft. mansions on both coasts is really, really inconvenient. Shut down the world’s economy just as he’s clawed, kicked and bitten his way to the top? As he says, “how dare you!”

The man’s put his mouth where his money is, and you have to admire a politician like that.

When religion replaces reason

University of California truth squad

University of California San Francisco fundraiser Stephanie Handlerr: Non-believers must die.

@shandlerr: @BarackObama …deny nonbelievers access to care at all. Let them eat their McDonalds…”

Politicized death panels.

Same church, different pew for global warmers.

Professor Richard Parncutt: “Death penalty for global warming deniers”.

UPDATE: Libertarian Advocate draws our attention to the Sacramento Democrat Chairman and homosexual “civil rights advocate” Allan Brauer demonstrating his feminine side to a Ted Cruz staffer: “May all your children all [sic] die from debilitating, painful and incurable diseases”. Apologetic when people objected? Ha – he’s a Democrat, and thus unassailable on moral issues.

Cognitive dissonance, or just a plain old plot to destroy the country?

In the name of Mother Gaia, I salute you - let us pray.

In the name of Mother Gaia, I salute you – let us pray.

Obama begins the shut down of coal plants today with his new EPA rules. No one (except miners) loves coal, and this will doubtless be greeted with hosannas from the president’s base, but there’s the inescapable fact to deal with: coal provides 40% of our electricity – how will we replace it?

We could use natural gas, of course: the switch from coal to cheaper gas has lowered  energy costs (estimated savings $1,400 per family, per year; far more than any increase than the Obama administration has achieved with his “laser-like focus” on the economy these past five years) and cut the CO2 emissions he’s so worried about 20% (a reduction at least twice that achieved by any other country).

But Obama opposes natural gas, and has done everything he can to prevent its use, from banning pipelines to prohibiting exploration or fracking on federal lands. His alternative is propeller beanies and solar panels, neither of which is producing any significant amount of energy and won’t, if it ever does at all, for decades. What do we do until then?

“Return to the Garden of Eden”, says the leader of the Free World and the crazed members of his congregation.

Tough times ahead.
