They’re cooking the books. They’re actually adjusting the numbers. Enron used to do their books the same way.
True. Official record-keepers such as NASA GISS and NOAA simply cannot be trusted. Their unexplained adjustments to the raw temperature data have turned cooling trends into warming ones. This isn’t science. This is fraud.
The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened,”. “You know, back in the ’70s — I remember the ’70s, we were told there was global cooling. And everyone was told global cooling was a really big problem. And then that faded.
True. But it’s typical of the climate alarmists’ breathtaking chutzpah and wanton disregard for history that you often find them claiming that the “ice age is coming” stories promulgated by scientists and magazines in the 70s are a right wing myth. Here are a few examples.
Climate change, as they have defined it, can never be disproved, because whether it gets hotter or whether it gets colder, whatever happens, they’ll say, well, it’s changing, so it proves our theory.
True. Now Cruz is really showing his intellectual mettle. What he is talking about is one of the main problems with Anthropogenic Global Warming theory: that the null hypothesis is so weak as to make the theory almost meaningless. Yes, it seems highly likely that human activity does contribute – in however small a way – to climate change. But what the alarmists won’t admit is that the difference we make is so infinitesimally small as to be insignificant.
Climate change is not science. It’s religion.
True. For more details see here passim. Science is only science when it follows the scientific method: openness; rigorousness; reproducibility. Instead it has been suborned by political activists with the zeal of religious converts.
The very existence of theClimate Feedbacksite which produced this bogus survey is proof of the problem. It purports to be an unbiased source – a “community of scientists” motivated by “civic duty” – to inform the public about the truth of climate change. In fact, there’s not a single person among theirmembershipwho is not a committed climate change alarmist.
