Skewing the data = lying

Do go and read this interesting post about how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) does "science".
So it was not a measured thing, but a figure introduced from outside. I accused them of this at the Academy of Sciences in Moscow—I said you have introduced factors from outside; it's not a measurement. It looks like it is measured from the satellite, but you don't say what really happened. And they answered, that we had to do it, because otherwise we would not have gotten any trend!

That is terrible! As a matter of fact, it is a falsification of the data set. Why? Because they know the answer. And there you come to the point: They “know” the answer; the rest of us, we are searching for the answer. Because we are field geologists; they are computer scientists. So all this talk that sea level is rising, this stems from the computer modeling, not from observations. The observations don't find it!

As you read it, bear in mind that what the IPCC has done with the sea levels "rises" is precisely the same as they have done with the surface "warming".

It is worth stating for the record: there is no global warming and there is no sea level rise. The IPCC has made the whole thing up. The IPCC are a bunch of stinking, fucking liars.

Well, there might be a warming trend, just as there might be a cooling trend; it's all part of the earth's climate being a dynamic system driven by a fuckoff big furnace a couple of million kilometers away. Hell! Mankind could even be partly responsible for all we know. The problem is that by doctoring the numbers we can't tell.

Also bt fiddling results so the outcome conforms to an ideologically dictated answer the "scientists" have damaged the reputation of all science. When this whole climate change hoohah finally dies the ignominious death it so richly deserves hardly anyone will trust a scientist again. So what happens when they really do discover a problem?

Somehow I doubt the greenies givea damn about that.

Mincing your words again, then.

No, we really are fucked. Allegedly.

not the first time, by a long shot:

In 1985 a consensus conference convened by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommended that men and women be considered “overweight” at BMIs of 27.8 and 27.3, respectively. In 1996 an NIH-sponsored review of the literature found that “increased mortality typically was not evident until well beyond a BMI level of 30.” Yet two years later [1998], the NIH yielded to a World Health Organization recommendation that “overweight” be defined downward to a BMI of 25, with 30 or more qualifying as “obese.”

Never mind the volume, feel the heat. The gullibility of mankind is awesome, especially when extremely well-funded special interest groups are behind the scam.

The latest news is, as of two weeks ago, there never was an AIDS crisis. It never was a generalised threat. Yes, of course, it did kill thousands of gay men who, in those more naive days, had unprotected sex. But the general population, including women, who were going to be dropping dead in the street, was never at any risk whatsoever. It was mainly confined to those who practised unprotected anal sex (and that includes Africans who use this interesting method as a means of birth control). But now, it is admitted that there was never the slightest risk to the population in general. Dump the fright movies and TV shows.

Does anyone remember the "population time bomb"? Starving Africans ... you know the drill. Does anyone remember Global Cooling - a mere 30 years ago? It used to take several centuries for the planet to go through a cooling period, but this is the computer age and we want our climate change fast! - so we can see it! Anyway, it didn't happen, although starving Africans were involved in some way.

Then, there was the END OF OIL!!!! We had become so dependent on petroleum and we only had 20 more years until the entire West ground to a halt! Goodbye cars! Goodbye aeroplanes! Coaches and horses were going to make a comeback, which would slow down the aid to Africa, and Africans would starve.

Latest estimates by geologists with PhDs, working for actual huge, rich oil companies with century-long track records in exploration: known supplies should see us through around another hundred years, although my guess is, the inventive, innovative West will have developed alternative forms of energy long, long before that. I don't know whether this will involve starving Africans, but the Saudis would do well to put a few dinars aside.

This brings us to Al Gore, whose family made its vast fortune out of coal mining and tobacco - nothing wrong with that, and nothing wrong with his family being the biggest shareholder in Occidental Petroleum - but Al needed a political platform - not least to rid himself of the hanging chads fantasy - and had the money to finance it. Enter hundreds of little pilot fish swimming under the feeding shark, in the form of hungry academics. Those academics got papers published (a necessity for getting tenure), got speaking engagements, got interviews in the media - a high profile for a noble cause. And the media, who got free first class flights to places that were already warm, like the tropics, and sipped pina coladas by the pool to assuage their worry, and speeches to report on which involved spiffy lunches, and cocktail parties and dins.

The fact is, the sun, and the activity on its surface, controls our climate. We came out of the Ice Age OK, and we didn't even have sleds in those days. We didn't even have people who walked upright.

There is about a TRILLION barrels of oil in the form of shale oil in North America and would cost about $25 per barrel to produce! enough to last the free west about hundred yrs+.
Why the fuck is the west paying the Muslims $100 PB when there is a secure source costing much less? Is the free west on a fucking suicide mission or what?
I despair at the way the free west is smashing itself to pieces when it should be building the new world.

Well, Cassandra, I agree with you, but it is our old friends the "environmentalists" and the Sierra Club and Al and The Gorettes aka Stone Agers, who fight further drilling on N America because it just fuels cars and factories and causes global warming.

Presumably the oil from Third Worlders is less incendiary, global-wise.

These fighters against progress have been jacking up this programme of control of progress for 30 years now.

I wonder how long it will be before "man made global warming" will be seen for the fraud that it is.

And you are right. Many of these save-the-earthers are also islamo-collaborators, or at least share a mindset.

You certainly live up to your name, by the way!
