...But average global temperatures peaked in 1998 and since have fallen slightly, even as carbon dioxide levels continued climbing. Thousands of scientists say CO2 has little effect on planetary temperatures, and there is no climate crisis. The legislation would cost millions of jobs and trillions of dollars, for a hypothetical 0.1 degree F reduction in global temperatures.
The administration responded to these inconvenient truths by issuing another "report" by government scientists carefully selected to include only climate crisis believers......The sham "report" conflates and confuses human activities and emissions with powerful natural forces that have caused major and minor climate changes and weather anomalies since the dawn of time. It relies on conjecture, conformist thinking and conspicuous elimination of contrary, skeptical, realist scientists and studies that do not support climate cataclysm conjecture.
The authors "largely ignored" critical comments to earlier drafts and made the final version "even more alarmist," says Joseph D'Aleo, first director of meteorology at the Weather Channel and ex-chairman of the American Meteorological Society's Weather Analysis and Forecasting Committee.
The report "misrepresents my own work," says University of Colorado environmental studies professor Roger Pielke, Jr. It makes claims that aren't supported by citations provided, relies on analyses that were never peer reviewed, ignores peer-reviewed studies that reach opposite conclusions from those proclaimed by the report, and cites papers that don't support conclusions.
The report also relies heavily on surface temperature data from monitoring stations located next to parking lots and air conditioning exhaust ports — falsely skewing temperature records upward. It relies on long chains of assumptions and speculation, but provides little supporting evidence.... Full Story
As I have said many times, if my weatherman has trouble predicting the weather for this weekend, why should I trust computer climate projections for 20 -30 years from now?
