Global Warming Movement Falling Apart
August 10, 2007
A few months ago, a study came out that demonstrated global temperatures have leveled off. But instead of possibly admitting that this whole global warming thing is a farce, a group of British scientists concluded that the real global warming won’t start until 2009. Between 2009 and 2014, they predict temperatures will soar past the record warmth of 1998.
Except guess what? A report was released yesterday that NOAA has been using incorrect data! NOAA has admitted this error, the results of which show the 1930s to now be the hottest decade on record. The bottom line is that it hasn’t been nearly as hot as the alarmists thought it was.
But it doesn’t end there. The National Climate Data Center (NCDC) is in the middle of a scandal. Their global observing network, the heart and soul of surface weather measurement, is a disaster. Urbanization has placed many sites in unsuitable locations — on hot black asphalt, next to trash burn barrels, beside heat exhaust vents, even attached to hot chimneys and above outdoor grills!
The data and approach taken by many global warming alarmists is seriously flawed. If the global data were properly adjusted for urbanization and station siting, and land use change issues were addressed, what would emerge is a cyclical pattern of rises and falls with much less of any background trend.
