The Science Fiction Of Global Warming

Published by at 10:47 am under All General Discussions,Global Warming

It is becoming quite apparent that some zealots in the federal government have been rigging their data to create the false impression there is an ecological emergency – where there is none:

When first implemented in 1990 as USHCN version1, it employed 1221 stations across the United States. In 1999, NASA’s James Hansen published this graph of USHCN version 1 annual mean temperatures:

About which Hansen correctly noted: “The U.S. has warmed during the past century, but the warming hardly exceeds year-to-year variability. Indeed, in the U.S. the warmest decade was the 1930s and the warmest year was 1934.”

The difference between the NOAA NCDC USHCN version 2 and GISS shows that NOAA’s new algorithm fails to correct for urbanization warming. In fact the NCDC changes have introduced a warming of 0.75F in the 75 years since 1930. Man made warming indeed but the men are in Asheville, NC.

It is a stunning find which is just one of many irregularities in a recently released report from the forensic scientists who have been challenging the cult of Al Gore/IPCC. To summarize, the data in 1999 showed no global warming (this was even after the peak warm year of 1998!). But after some manipulation all of a sudden the Earth was in trouble – right before Al Gore’s bid for the Presidency. What a striking coincidence.

And in other news, a far left liberal concludes the same thing I have for years – Wind Turbines are an eye sore which cannot meet our energy needs:

With his 90th birthday in July, a trip into space scheduled for later in the year and a new book out next month, 2009 promises to be an exciting time for James Lovelock. But the originator of the Gaia theory, which describes Earth as a self-regulating planet, has a stark view of the future of humanity. 

Most of the “green” stuff is verging on a gigantic scam. Carbon trading, with its huge government subsidies, is just what finance and industry wanted. It’s not going to do a damn thing about climate change, but it’ll make a lot of money for a lot of people and postpone the moment of reckoning. I am not against renewable energy, but to spoil all the decent countryside in the UK with wind farms is driving me mad. It’s absolutely unnecessary, and it takes 2500 square kilometres to produce a gigawatt – that’s an awful lot of countryside.

Occasionally a little sanity shines through the misty haze.

    AJ you really need to read this. It is a scathing critique of James Hansen of GISS from his former boss.

    “Hansen was never muzzled even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress,” Theon wrote. [Note: NASA scientist James Hansen has created worldwide media frenzy with his dire climate warning, his call for trials against those who dissent against man-made global warming fear, and his claims that he was allegedly muzzled by the Bush administration despite doing 1,400 on-the-job media interviews! -

  2. Link fiesta: global warming and mocking the Goracle…

    Things have been really busy lately, so I haven’t had time to write about current events the way I’d like. And yet, I hate to pass up any chance to mock the pseudoscientific Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming, so I’m……
