If the Evidence Doesn’t Support Your Policies, Just Make Up a Bureacracy that Will. by The Elephant's Child

Perhaps the Obama administration is vaguely aware of ClimateGate after all. This week they unveiled its National Climate Service (NCS).  Yes, another useless government bureaucracy. The Federal Government is hard at work creating government jobs, by spending more taxpayer money overpaying more  bureaucrats.  Here is their bureau-speak announcement:

Americans are witnessing the impacts of climate change in their own backyards.  They increasingly are asking the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for information about climate change in order to make the best choices for their families, communities and businesses.

The best meteorologists can forecast the weather a few days ahead, but the National Climate Service is going to help us plan for changes in future decades in global temperature, atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), incoming sunlight, sea level, and Arctic ice.  That’s just what you needed to know, is it not?  The NCS says:

People are searching for relevant and timely information about these changes to inform decisionmaking about virtually all aspects of their lives.

Well, no they’re not.  Junk Science’s Steven Milloy responds:

The real purpose of the NCS, of course, has nothing to do with education.  It has everything to do with the politicization of the natural process of climate change for the unnatural ends of egomaniacal profiteers like Al Gore, and international socialists who want to use greenhouse gas regulation as a means of imposing their political agendas.

Cap-and-Trade is dead in the Senate,  Climategate, glaciergate, rainforest gate, the failed Copenhagen conference, and the exposure of IPCC Chief Rajendra Pachauri’s financial conflicts of interest and calls for his resignation have derailed the alarmist climate gravy train.  This Ministry of Propaganda is intended to reawaken Al Gore’s climate panic agenda so they can get the things they want done, done.

Reminder: To all you nice folks in the eastern part of the country. That white stuff in your yards and blocking your streets is not Climate, it’s not global warming, it’s simply weather. Climate is a statistic, and at present, it’s not a very reliable one.

I sure wish we had some of that global warming in Virginia right now. How many SUV’s do we need to fire up and for how long to make some of this white stuff go away?

Sorry Zeus, Belching CO2 just won’t help. We (in Seattle) are having a fairly mild, rainy winter due to La Nina currents (or is it El Nino?). Snow is great as long as you are well prepared, don’t have to go out, have everything you need and the power doesn’t go out.

Go out tomorrow and make a spectacular snowman. Here’s some inspiration from Harbin, China:I should add that I like it better without the colored lights, but it is pretty amazing, even with Comrade Mao.
ADDENDUM:It’s El Nino, I don’t know why I cannot keep this straight, well, yes I do, it’s because I don’t understand El Nino and La Nina.

It’s a fairly useless website. People are pretty unconcerned with climate change. It ranks right at the bottom of the list of what people are concerned about. And thanks, Ron.
