A surreal scientific blunder last week raised a huge question mark about the temperature records that underpin the worldwide alarm over global warming. On Monday, Nasa's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), which is run by Al Gore's chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, and is one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures, announced that last month was the hottest October on record. This was startling. Across the world there were reports of unseasonal snow and plummeting temperatures last month, from the American Great Plains to China, and from the Alps to New Zealand. China's official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its "worst snowstorm ever". In the US, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th-warmest October in 114 years
But when expert readers of the two leading warming-sceptic blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit, began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.
When will this sh*t end. Nasa has been debunked so many times. Each time they come out with a new hottest month ever it is front page news. Then a month later a correction is printed on page 23 of the classified section.
This is lefty crap at it's finest.
One last kick in the groin to you Global warming idiots:
Yet last week's latest episode is far from the first time Dr Hansen's methodology has been called in question. In 2007 he was forced by Mr Watts and Mr McIntyre to revise his published figures for US surface temperatures, to show that the hottest decade of the 20th century was not the 1990s, as he had claimed, but the 1930s.
"Chelsea Tractors are reviled because these are symbols of middle-class success. You have to remember that trade unionists and antinuclear campaigners didnít go away. They just morphed into eco-mentalists because they realised that global warming was a better weapon than striking, or doing lesbionics for mother Russia in Berkshire."
"Does anyone really imagine for a moment that my wife gives two stuffs about global warming? She certainly didnít appear to be all that bothered on Thursday evening when, during the great carbon-saving switch-off, I ran round the house furiously turning on every light, hair dryer, dishwasher and toaster."
"I derive no pleasure at all from doing 180mph ó if Iím honest, itís a little bit frightening ó but I derive a huge amount of pleasure from covering 180 miles in an hour. It means I get wherever Iím going more quickly. And that means I have more time to do stuff that is worthwhile. This is what the socialists and the environmentalists just canít get into their thick heads. Their lives may be empty and friendless, but some of us donít have the time to dawdle. If I leave London after work in a ponderous and hopeless diesel car, then I do not have sufficient power to overtake slower-moving traffic on the run from Oxford to Chipping Norton. This means I get home after the children have gone to bed, which means they donít see me. And that in turn means theyíll grow up to be glue sniffers or Liberal Democrats."
