Scott Pruitt Needs to Go Further; Demand Transparent Peer Review, Temperature Reconstructions and “Adjustments”

The New York Times is spittin’ mad at Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt. In just the past week, the paper has attacked Pruitt four times – from the front-page to the editorial page — following his announcement that the agency would not longer be permitted to rely on so-called “secret science” as a basis for taking regulatory action. And at no point in this onslaught has the Times allowed the truth to intervene. Since 1994, EPA and university researchers it funds have been hiding scientific data from Congress and the public data. EPA has used the data and studies in question since 1997 as the basis for issuing unnecessary and draconian (if not outright punitive) air quality regulations. During the Obama years, EPA relied on these studies to issue regulations that wiped out 94 percent of the market value of the U.S. coal industry. The largest companies were forced into bankruptcy. Thousands of miner jobs were killed, wreaking havoc on communities that depended on the jobs. Continue Reading Scott Pruitt is dead on with his demand to end “secret data.” How justifying trillions of dollars of public spending could have been based upon “secret data” is beyond me, but that policy needs to end. Transparency is the key to exposing the man-made climate change hoax, and it needs to be applied to more than just the data. Scott Pruitt, the EPA and Congress should demand a public/open source approach to Peer Review. My bet is that the “Peers” on these Peer Review Panels are the same corrupt cabal of usual suspects. These undemocratic, unscientific, unethical, and untrustworthy conspirators corrupt the scientific process and misallocate trillions of public funds based upon undisclosed data supporting junk science. Congress should investigate and expose the corrupt “Peer Review” process. The Climategate emails are a good place to start. They expose collusion, corruption, and behavior often found in elementary school playgrounds. As the following quote demonstrates, the truth is out there, but no one is doing anything about it. It is time for the EPA and Congress to start doing their jobs and investigate this corruption. The Enabler in Chief Obama is no longer in office, it is time for the adults to start cleaning up these messes. Scientists sometimes like to portray what they do as divorced from the everyday jealousies, rivalries and tribalism of human relationships. What makes science special is that data and results that can be replicated are what matters and the scientific truth will out in the end. But a close reading of the emails hacked from the University of East Anglia in November exposes the real process of everyday science in lurid detail. Many of the emails reveal strenuous efforts by the mainstream climate scientists to do what outside observers would regard as censoring their critics. The Congress and EPA should also demand a public/open source approach to temperature reconstructions and “adjustments.” A few months ago we wrote about the RSS data and why it was likely that they would cave to pressure to “adjust” their data to fall more in line with the corrupt and highly “adjusted” ground measurements. Sure enough, that is exactly what has happened. The RSS data has been “adjusted” to more align with the ground measurements. We and plenty of others were able to not only predict the coming adjustments, but the direction of the adjustments, and the reasoning for the adjustments. When people can predict with extreme accuracy the events that happen in the future there is a problem. Our prediction of corruption of the RSS data was infinitely more accurate than the IPCC Climate Models prediction of temperatures. Once again, the truth is out there, but no one is paying attention. It is time for the Congress and EPA to start demanding transparency to the data “adjustments.” BTW, just look at MODTRAN and compare altitude of 0.1 km to 30km. Weather balloons rise to an altitude of 30km which is very dry air, cold air. There is no reason static ground measurements should fall in line with highly dynamic balloon measurements. They are measuring temperatures in a different layer of the atmosphere with different humidity and no urban heat island effect. The Balloon measurements should fall more in line with the satellite measurements than the ground measurements. The fact that they are coming more in line with the ground measurements is clear evidence of fraud. Not only are the “adjustments” suspect, the temperature reconstructions are a complete and utter joke. Just look at the “Hockeystick” graph. The thing “dog legs” 2 times EXACTLY when the construction methodology changes. The first dogleg is in 1902 when instrumental data is added, and again in 1980 when proxies are dropped. Instrumental data is also ignored until 1902. The longest continuous dataset of temperature is Central England, and it shows no material warming since 1650. The Hockeystick shows extreme warming of almost 1°C over that same time period. Who do you trust more, a thermometer or Michael Mann? Other longterm thermometer data sets don’t contradict the Hockeystick as well (Click here to read more). Once again, all the evidence of fraud is out in the public. Why isn’t someone doing something about it? The most damning aspect of the Hockeystick is that it is not independently reproducible. It used a bizarre collection of “proxies,” ignored far more accurate and representative instrumental data, and used RESEARCHER SPECIFIC “unconventional” statistical methods like “Mike’s Nature Trick…To Hide The Decline.” No way in Hades could this temperature reconstruction ever have passed the scrutiny of a public/open source methodology. Michael Mann would have been laughed off the stage faster than the Emperor put on his clothes once people recognized the fraud. It is time for the EPA and Congress to pull away the curtain and expose the Wizards of Climate Change as the frauds that they are. Once again the truth is out there for all to see. We just need Toto to expose it to the public at large. Please Like, Share, Subscribe and Comment…and forward to Scott Pruitt
