Did you catch this in the news? Probably not if you rely on any of the biased left-wing news sources that dominate print and broadcast media.
Over the weekend, news broke that Dr. John Bates, the former principal scientist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. blew the whistle on NOAA over their 2015 report utilizing the "Karl report" to show that the planet was warming faster than expected and that there was no "pause" in warming. NOAA's report was perfectly timed to coincide with President Obama and the highly touted summit in Paris for the Climate Treaty he illegally signed.
Problem is, the Karl study was fatally flawed (like the bogus 97% consensus study, like Mann's hockey stick graph, like any claim out of Al Gore's mouth, etc.). NOAA arbitrarily doubled historical sea temps, ignoring contrary evidence from ARGO sea buoys and satellites, largely considered the more accurate way to measure sea temps. They then utilized a land temp data set created by what NOAA now claims was "alpha" version software that was loaded with devastating bugs that rendered the data output unreliable and unverifiable.
This is all coming out because Texas Rep. Lamar Smith, via the House Republicans on the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, had subpoenaed NOAA in 2015 to get the records relating to the Karl Study.
Not surprisingly, NOAA claims that the data and records regarding the methodology for producing the study's claims were never properly archived. Which means they memory-holed them. Like the East Anglia debacle all those years ago. Caught in a provable lie, NOAA just shredded the evidence.
That seems perfectly in keeping with how the entire scam of man-caused climate change has been operating from the first hysterical and totally debunked IPCC report way back when.
These people lie, they fabricate data and reverse engineer studies to fit their claims. They ignore any historical data that contradicts their preferred conclusion on climate change and just threaten and insult and try to silence anyone who dares to challenge their hysterical adherence to the religion of man-caused climate change.
And lefties call conservatives anti science.
Mad props to Dr. Bates for having the testicular fortitude to blow the whistle on this scam. And the same for Rep. Smith. He was roundly mocked back in 2015 for looking into the study and subpoenaing NOAA scientists, who at the time refused to turn over anything to the committee. But he hung in there. It's things like this that restore my faith in government just a tad.
Btw, refusing a congressional subpoena, isn't that a jail-able offense? Why aren't these asshats in the slammer? Also, not un-coincidentally, Dr. Tom Karl, author of the fraudulent study has left NOAA.
Gee, there's a shocker, eh?
Oh well, it's another blow to this fake science scam. Maybe folks will begin to open their eyes one day. Hopefully sooner than later.
Also over the weekend, somnambulant songstress Lana del Rey was spotted out and about, looking remarkably bustier than usual. Has she had some work done? She's always gone in for the lip injections to get those duck lips everyone seems to think are so desirable (me: no). Who can say. I'm sure my old Lana troll will be happy I posted these if he still comes around:
