Is Western Climatology Corrupt?

The obvious cheating of the western climate establishment strongly suggests they are hiding something and that they are wrong. That their cheating is so blatant suggests that the media has not put them under any real scrutiny. ~Dr. David Evans

The attitude displayed in the famous “climategate” emails has a long provenance. This finding was shown in an invited presentation to the American Meteorological Society annual meeting in 1997. A scientist whom I had held in high esteem, Tim Barnett of Scripps Institute of Oceanography, in the discussion after its presentation, threatened to asphyxiate me with the microphone cord “if I ever gave it again”. (From the sworn testimony of Patrick J. Michaels before the US Congressional Committee on Science and Technology, 17-November-2010)

Irrespective of claims to the contrary, astrology is a far more accurate description of the type of ‘science’ that AGW actually is. Given the gross lack of technological competence and substantive knowledge underlying GCMs that has been demonstrated so far, believing in the predictions of AGW alarmist is like believing in readers of Tarot cards.

The global mean temperature anomaly record:

  •  Changes are small (order of several tenths of a degree)
  •  Changes are not causal but rather the residue of regional changes.
  •  Changes of the order of several tenths of a degree are always present at virtually all time scales.

Obsessing on the details of this record is more akin to a spectator sport (or tea leaf reading) than a serious contributor to scientific efforts – at least so far. [Richard S. Lindzen (rlindzen@mit.edu) at the House of Commons, Westminster, London, 22-February-2012]

Hot World Syndrome—fear of a hotter, more intimidating world than it actually is prompting a desire for more protection than is warranted by any actual threat. A Chance Meeting– We toured south along the Bicentennial Bike Trail in the Summer of 1980, working up appetites covering ~70 miles per day and staying at hiker/biker campgrounds at night along the Oregon/California coast (they were 50¢ a day at that time). The day's ride over, and after setting up tents, hitting the showers, and making a run to a close-by store, it was time to relax. The third in our little bicycle tour group, Tom, was about 30 yards away conversing with another knot of riders and treating himself to an entire cheesecake for dinner. He probably figured Jim and I would joke about what a pig he was eating that whole pie and decided to eat among strangers. Three hours later after sharing stories and remarking on a few coincidences that turned up here and there, Tom and one of the former strangers realized they were cousins, meeting in this most unlikely place for the first time. ~Mac
