Whenever the federal government gets involved in a project, such as the issue of reducing global warming or any other world threatening problem for that matter, the one thing we must all remember is the phrase “follow the money.” Any time we see the federal government addressing an issue we have to ask ourselves what it is they stand to gain by regulating the activities of the population, at large, and ultimately, what is their end game?
With the example of global warming, we have carbon footprints, pollution producing power plants, and greenhouse gases, etc. to worry about?
This is all related to the spiking cost of energy production, and billions of dollars of tax money being funneled into federal bureaucracies designed, allegedly, to stop the world’s masses from going extinct on a planet too hot to support human life.
Well, now we’ve learned that the climate scientists who are responsible for monitoring the planet’s increasing temps may be fudging the figures and hiding the truth!
What the whistleblowing NOAA insider John Bates has just done is prove beyond reasonable doubt what some of us have long claimed: that from NASA GISS and NOAA across the pond to the UEA and the Met Office’s Hadley Centre, the world’s leading temperature data sets have been hijacked by climate activists and abused to advance a political agenda.
As we reported, with perhaps a hint of snark, in ‘Hide the Hiatus!’. How the Climate Alarmists Eliminated The Inconvenient Pause In Global Warming the paper seemed to have been produced by two alarmist shills at NOAA – Tom Karl and Thomas Peterson – with the express purpose of confounding sceptics in the run up to Paris.
The thrust of Karl’s paper is this: that far from staying flat since 1998, global temperatures have carried on rising. It’s just that scientists haven’t noticed before because they’ve been looking in the wrong place – on land, rather than in the sea where all the real heat action is happening.
And how did Karl et al notice what everyone else has missed until now? Well, by using a specialised scientific technique called “getting your excuses in early before the Paris climate conference in December.”
Essentially, this technique involves making adjustments to the raw temperature data (sound familiar?) and discovering – lo! – that the sceptics were wrong and the alarmists were right all along.
Karl’s paper makes much of the fact that the methods used for gathering sea temperature data have changed over the years: in the old days it used to involve buckets; more recently, engine intake thermometers. Hence his excuse for these magical “adjustments”. Apparently (amazingly, conveniently), the measurements used since 1998 have been “running cold” and therefore needed correcting in a (handy) upward direction in order to show what has really been happening to global warming. Once you realise this – global warming turns out to be as real and present and dangerous as ever it was.
Mail on Sunday reported:
In an exclusive interview, Dr Bates accused the lead author of the paper, Thomas Karl, who was until last year director of the NOAA section that produces climate data – the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) – of ‘insisting on decisions and scientific choices that maximised warming and minimised documentation… in an effort to discredit the notion of a global warming pause, rushed so that he could time publication to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy’.
In other words, the climate scientists have been lying to make the problem look much worse than it is so that money would continue to flow into their hands.
This is a big part of the swamp of corruption that President Trump wants to drain and now he may have the data he needs to get it done by proving that the skeptics were right and the global warming alarmists were wrong.
