Folks like Contessa Brewer and her cohort Dylan (“Ratfink” as Mark Levin calls him) Ratigan and the many ‘warmers’ (the global warming zealots) out there would have you believe that the extreme snow we folks in the mid-Atlantic are experiencing is because of global warming.
Um, no. That would be a false statement.
Just like when the liberal ‘warmers’ like Senator Byrd, Senator Boxer, et al tried to tell us several years ago that when it WASN’T snowing, that was because of global warming/climate change. Brietbart TV has a collection of clips from Democrats blaming the lack of snow in previous years on global warming.
Which is it warmers? You can’t have it both ways…
BTW, one of the chief scientists at the center of the “Climategate” scandal admitted this weekend that there has been no significant global warming in the last 15 years. He also stated that data vital to Professor Mann’s hockey stick graph has gone ‘missing,’ and warming periods HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE – but NOT due to man-made changes. Sounds like settled science? No.
The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
The admissions will be seized on by sceptics as fresh evidence that there are serious flaws at the heart of the science of climate change and the orthodoxy that recent rises in temperature are largely man-made.
