NOAA Says there is No “Pause” But Refuses To Turn Over Their Evidence. by The Elephant's Child

10648glider_with_glacier4_edited_EvansTemperature has long been a problem for Climate science. We have weather stations all over the country to measure temperature, but when volunteers looked into the siting of the stations, it was found that many were situated next to air-conditioning outlets or vast expanses of concrete that are heat collectors. Tree-rings are fallible, but we now have a satellite record that is the gold standard. The RSS satellite record shows clearly the inconvenient truth that there has been no global warming since January 1997.

The U.S government’s main climate research agency has refused to release to Congress the key documents that support their conclusion that there has been no pause in global warming. What could they be trying to hide? James Delingpole supplies the answer:

But if there has been no “global warming” for nearly 19 years how can alarmist proselytizers like President Obama and John Kerry possibly hope to convince an increasingly skeptical public that this apparently non-existent problem yet remains the most pressing concern of our age?”

Step forward the Obama administration’s helpful friends at NOAA. It’s not supposed to be a politicized institution: its job is to do science, not propaganda. But the memo must have been missed by NOAA scientists Thomas Karl and Thomas Peterson who, in May this year, published a “study” so favourable to the alarmist cause it might just as well have been scripted by Al Gore and Greenpeace, with a royal foreword by the Prince of Wales, and a blessing from Pope Francis.

Data show no slowdown in recent global warming” declared NOAA’s press release. “The Pause”, in other words, was just the construct of a few warped deniers’ twisted imaginations.

There’s a lot of money and a lot of big grants, and new departments all invested in the urgent problem of global warming, not to mention the wind farms and solar arrays, as well as the farmers growing corn to put in your gas tanks.The farmers can go back to supplying food, but the climate modelers may need to find something more worthwhile to do.

Vladimir Putin Says the Climate Change Scare is a Fraud. by The Elephant's Child

vladimir_putinRussian President Vladimir Putin has stated that he thinks that the scare in Western culture over climate change is a fraud, and designed to restrain industrial development in countries like Russia.

President Obama has promised to reduce U.S. carbon dioxide emissions by 25 to 28 percent by 2025. Not going to happen. But the attempt will be very costly, and useless. That pledge was meant to get China to sign on, but that’s not going to happen either. President Obama wants the country to reduce its emissions by 1.2 billion tons by 2025. The administration has already imposed $26 billion in costs to cut carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases from cars and power plants. Those 15 rules will cost $230 billion and stop just 0.06 degrees Celsius of global warming — that’s 6 one-hundredths of a degree. There’s more variation in temperature from one day to another.

The American people, in poll after poll, rank climate at the very bottom of their long list of concerns, but Obama soldiers on. Even the U.N.plan is only to have the capacity to limit temperature rise to around 2.7 degrees Celsius, by 2100. It is raining and 63º here today, and the forecast is for 56º tomorrow. Of course that’s Fahrenheit, not Celsius. What’s the difference? We need more carbon dioxide, not less. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, but a necessary building block of life. And Mr. Putin is correct, it is a fraud — but not to hold Russian industrialization back.
