Contessa Brewer, on MSNBC yesterday, attempted to show she knows more about global warming climate change than most people. She tries vainly to refute Senator Jim DeMint’s hilarious Twitter status in which he said the snow would continue until ‘Al Gore cries uncle.’ She essentially ignores the weatherman in the video. Kudos to the weatherman who is on screen with her who attempts to show both sides of the AGW argument but ends up knocking it right down the middle.
If Ms. Brewer had done any research on her own, she would know that Judicial Watch, a public interest group that investigates and prosecutes Government corruption, recently uncovered NASA documents through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies that shows NASA’s involvment in climate gate and how NASA actually revised their temperature data. If this is so, how can one link to NASA with a straight face?
NASA has been stonewalling requests for years. Much of the data used for the “consensus” that manmade global warming is real came from the CRU and NASA’s GISS. If that data is not accurate and/or has been manipulated it undermines everything. NASA was forced to revise much of its data concerning global warming. Among the revisions found were:
- Only 4 of the top 10 warmest years occurred in the past 10 years (1998, 1999, 2006)
- Out of the top 10 warmest years half occurred before 1940
- The years 2000, 2002, 2003 and 2004 were cooler than the year 1900
- 1996, just two years before what Al Gore called the hottest year in the history of the planet, was actually cooler than average.
- 1921 was the third warmest year in recorded history (behind 1934 and 1998).
As you can see above, NASA’s data revision clearly changes things. So, we’re almost back to the 1970’s theory of global cooling! The fact remains that the planet has been cooling since 1998. If there was global warming, then all of this snow would be rain as the Earth is supposed to get WARMER not colder. One of my favorite things the alarmists have tried to say is that global warming will bring more violent thunderstorms and hurricanes. Only one (1) major hurricane occurred in the 2000s (Hurricane Katrina) and many experts say that Katrina was NOT caused by climate change.
Dr. Michael Mann, who co-authored the famous graph of temperature trends dubbed the “hockey stick graph,” was implicated in Climategate. Renowned statistician and software engineer Eric S. Raymond (ESR) says the global warming “hockey stick” graph data was “hard-coded” or purposefully “fudged.” Mann’s controversial work has been challenged in the past.
Oh, and last but not least, remember when the IPCC and the global warming advocates like Al Gore talk about sea level rising? It is a lie.
For example, the IPCC scientist who made the bogus claim that Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 included the unsubstantiated claim in a report purely to put political pressure on world leaders. Also, Al Gore started telling folks in 2007 the bogus claim that the polar ice caps would melt in five (5) years. He was called out on this by the very scientist he supposedly got the information from.
If Ms. Brewer bothered to do ANY research, she would definitely know this.
