Global Warming Fail

Mark Landsbaum presents a list of incidents which bring the data and assumption of anthropogenic climate change under question. Many of these data are accepted and presented as unquestionable fact, but yet are shown as problematic.

Some highlights:

ClimateGate – This scandal began the latest round of revelations when thousands of leaked documents from Britain’s East Anglia Climate Research Unit showed systematic suppression and discrediting of climate skeptics’ views and discarding of temperature data, suggesting a bias for making the case for warming. Why do such a thing if, as global warming defenders contend, the “science is settled?”

FOIGate – The British government has since determined someone at East Anglia committed a crime by refusing to release global warming documents sought in 95 Freedom of Information Act requests. The CRU is one of three international agencies compiling global temperature data. If their stuff’s so solid, why the secrecy?

[…]

AmazonGate – The London Times exposed another shocker: the IPCC claim that global warming will wipe out rain forests was fraudulent, yet advanced as “peer-reveiwed” science. The Times said the assertion actually “was based on an unsubstantiated claim by green campaigners who had little scientific expertise,” “authored by two green activists” and lifted from a report from the World Wildlife Fund, an environmental pressure group. The “research” was based on a popular science magazine report that didn’t bother to assess rainfall. Instead, it looked at the impact of logging and burning. The original report suggested “up to 40 percent” of Brazilian rain forest was extremely sensitive to small reductions in the amount of rainfall, but the IPCC expanded that to cover the entire Amazon, the Times reported.

PeerReviewGate – The U.K. Sunday Telegraph has documented at least 16 nonpeer-reviewed reports (so far) from the advocacy group World Wildlife Fund that were used in the IPCC’s climate change bible, which calls for capping manmade greenhouse gases.

RussiaGate – Even when global warming alarmists base claims on scientific measurements, they’ve often had their finger on the scale. Russian think tank investigators evaluated thousands of documents and e-mails leaked from the East Anglia research center and concluded readings from the coldest regions of their nation had been omitted, driving average temperatures up about half a degree.

[…]

AlaskaGate – Geologists for Space Studies in Geophysics and Oceanography and their U.S. and Canadian colleagues say previous studies largely overestimated by 40 percent Alaskan glacier loss for 40 years. This flawed data are fed into those computers to predict future warming.

But remember, if you doubt AGW, you’re an unpatriotic “denier” whop doesn’t believe in science.

    Dude:

    You can be as blind as you wish.
    Please, spare the rest of the world with your need to pollute other people’s brain.

      I’m not sure what I’m blind to. There hasn’t been any warming in almost 15 years. Virtually all of the data that support AGW are falsified or manipulated in some way to support a pre-determined conclusion. And examination of the original data — most of which are missing or destroyed — is decried as unnecessary and irrational, even heretical. And all of it is used to justify what amounts to a massive programs to limit economic activity and redistribute wealth.

      Forgive me for having the gall to question something with such far-reaching consequences and such little actual support in fact. I guess I just don’t have the religious faith necessary to give other people such unquestioning and complete control of my life.
