GOP House Science Member: "Global Warming Is A Total Fraud"

    Re: GOP House Science Member:

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released its “State of the Climate in 2012” report, which states that “worldwide, 2012 was among the 10 warmest years on record.”

    But the report “fails to mention [2012] was one of the coolest of the decade, and thus confirms the cooling trend,” according to an analysis by climate blogger Pierre Gosselin.

    “To no one’s surprise, the report gives the reader the impression that warming is galloping ahead out of control,” writes Gosselin. “But their data shows just the opposite.”

    Although the NOAA report noted that in 2012, “the Arctic continues to warm” with “sea ice reaching record lows,” it also stated that the Antarctica sea ice “reached a record high of 7.51 million square miles” on Sept. 26, 2012.

    And the latest figures for this year show that there’s been a slowdown of melting in the Arctic this summer as well, with temperatures at the North Pole well below normal for this time of year. Meteorologist Joe Bastardi calls it “the coldest ever recorded.”

    The Associated Press had to retract a photo it released on July 27 with the caption, “The shallow meltwater lake is occurring due to an unusually warm period.”

    “In fact, the water accumulates in this way every summer,” AP admitted in a note to editors, adding that the photo was doubly misleading because “the camera used by the North Pole Environment Observatory has drifted hundreds of miles from its original position, which was a fe

    NOAA also reported that the “average lower strastospheric temperature, about six to ten miles above the Earth’s surface, for 2012 was record or near-record cold, depending on the dataset” even while the concentrations of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, continued to increase.

    "Even with all this data manipulation, the trend is down as shown by this Hadley global plot," writes Joseph D'Aleo, former director of meteorology at The Weather Channel. (See D'Aleo - Real Story About Temps.pdf)

    "Last year was the 8th warmest but 7th coldest since 1998. They explain it away with the predominance of La Ninas or a solar blip, but say it was the warmest decade nonetheless, so stop questioning us," he said.

    On August 7th, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten quoted Irish solar expert Ian Elliott predicting that lower levels of sunspot activity over the next few years “indicates that we may be on the path to a new little ice age.”

    “If you think scientists just couldn’t get any more incompetent, then think again. NOAA scientists even appear to believe that cold events are now signs of warming,” Gosselin points out.

    “When one carefully reads the report, we find that the NOAA findings actually do confirm precisely what the skeptics have been claiming all along:

    1. The Earth has stopped warming.

    2. The climate models exaggerated future warming [caused by] CO2 climate sensitivity is much lower than we first thought.

    “That’s the real issue at hand,” he added.w dozen miles from the pole.”

    In response to ppannos' comment:


    In other words, Watts says the data show that global warming is due relatively more to increased urbanization than to greenhouse gases. Such a finding would be relevant for whether government should further restrict greenhouse gasses.



    Hence, "anthropomorphic climate change".

    The warming trend is observed in both rural and urban regions.  Obviously, we know urban areas are hotter, but this is irrelevant to the overall warming trend.

    So, global temps are rising, and so are global greenhouse gases.  Both are unequivocal, and the effect of the latter is just basic physics.




    If a significant portion of the sensors used to measure global temperature are placed near sources of heat supplied by man and that fact is ignored, wouldn't that data create a false impression of the true gloal temperature?

    What if the right wing loons decided they were going to immerse all of the global temperature sensors in a continual ice bath? Would you be able to figure out that might not reflect a valid data point for measuring the global temperature?

    The greenhouse gas theory is based upon increasing levels of CO2, methane, etc. trapping heat within the atmosphere and causing global temperatures to rise. If the cause of global warming iwere heat islands associated with cities then why would the solution be to control man made CO2 emissions vs controlling man made heat islands?

    Why do you hate science?

    Re: GOP House Science Member:

    we have more pressing issues right now than this theory


    Not a single person showed up at the Georgetown waterfront Tuesday for a climate change agenda event put on by Organizing for Action, the shadowy nonprofit advocacy group born out of President Obama’s 2012 campaign, the NRCC wrote in its blog.

    The event page for the “Climate Change Day of Action Rally” disappeared after rainy weather appeared to drive away whatever people planned to attend. The embarrassing showing follows the news that only one volunteer stayed for an OFA Obamacare event in Centreville, Va., last week to work the phones:

    No. You fail.  And you spent too much time trying to disprove it.  Here is you much loved abc confirming it:




    here is Bolden himself talking about it:



    so, sorry to put you to all that work, trying to walk around the facts.

    you fail.

    How does NASA find time to do research on global warming when their primary goal is muslim outreach?

    NASA's primary mission is muslim outreach?



    Have another quart of fromaledhyde.

    "President Obama told NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering." 



    Bolden was talking about muslims in the context of outreach and international relations. 


    He was not discussing muslims in the context of NASA's primary missions of science, and aeronautics.



    Yawn. Stop with the lame excuses and posturing. Did Obama say it or not?

    as far as your context claim: NASA has some sort of feel good outreach to the Muslim world? How does that put satellites in space?

    i don't want to hear another word from you on how we need to raise taxes.
