In case the more pedestrian prose of spokesmen, scholars, and scientists doesn’t do it for you, here are some humorous quips from Mark Steyn. They hammer home points I’ve passed along previously—Climate Change hysteria is a product of temperatures that do not, and have never existed in the real world—they are manipulations of reality:
“NOAA’s are the most dramatically adjusted figures since, well, Caitlyn Jenner’s three days earlier.”
And then quoting Judith Curry (whom I have written about before):
“The greatest changes in the new NOAA surface temperature analysis is to the ocean temperatures since 1998. This seems rather ironic, since this is the period where there is the greatest coverage of data with the highest quality of measurements – ARGO buoys and satellites don’t show a warming trend.”
“How long are the French and the Japanese and the Russians and the Germans and the Chinese going to let les Anglo-Saxons dictate the global temperature? Especially when they’re in effect declaring that they don’t care what the thermometer actually said when you went out to read it at the crack of dawn on a freezing morning in 1999. They’re going to tell you 16 years later what it ought to have said, to comply with their ‘models.'”
And also this:
“…before the ‘adjustments’, there was less than two-fifths of a degree’s difference between January 1915 and January 2000. Since then, NCDC/NOAA has made regular ‘adjustments’ cranking up 2000 and dialing down 1915. If these computers are that good, it makes you wonder why anybody bothers keeping an observed daily instrumental temperature record at all.”
From economic and unemployment data at the Federal Reserve, to temperatures released by yet more peons on the government payroll at NOAA, it’s become fairly clear that to rely on government information is to put your life and your freedom in the hands of people who couldn’t tell the truth if their lives depended on it.
