The inorganic section of the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) Energy Geochemistry Laboratory in Lakewood, Colo. manipulated data on a variety of topics – including many related to the environment – from 1996 to 2014. The manipulation was caught in 2008, but continued another six years...
“Tell me what you want and I will get it for you. What we do is like magic,” a former USGS official told auditors a former employee linked to the manipulation would say, according to Westerman.
A Huffington Post columnist thinks that replacing climate change with 'massive worldwide death machine' or 'crazy killer weather' will do the trick. And if this does not scare people enough, the writer thinks that 'maybe we need to tell a few lies'
'Global cooling is causing causing erratic weather changes...early frosts from Texas to the Dakotas, typhoons in India, drought in Siberia...are evidence of the unfavorable shifts in the Earth's climate'
The Pittsburgh Press - October 9, 1974 - 'Experts Watch Gradual Global Cooling' - 'Shifts In World Climate Since 1945 Help Explain Severe Food Crisis' - By Peter J. Bernstein - The devastating food shortage that has millions of the world's poor in its grip is directly related to what climatologists increasingly suspect is a gradual global cooling process that is causing erratic weather changes from one year to the next. Early frosts from Texas to the Dakotas, typhoons in India, drought in Siberia, expansion of the desert south of the African Sahara are evidence of the unfavorable shifts in the Earth's climate that have been occurring since 1945, U.S. weather experts say.
The drop has already shortened the growing season in England by two weeks and caused a dangerous southward shift of monsoon winds in rice-growing regions of Southeast Asia.
Here in Washington the economic and political consequences of global weather changes are increasingly obvious as U.S. Agriculture Department experts post the latest disappointing estimates of world grain crops. The wheat estimate for instance, released this week, is down nearly four million tons from last month's. And world grain productions this year will fall more than 25 million tons below last year's crops, department figures show. This shortfall is more than the food need for 100 million people in hungry nations. Altogether 400 million, or one-tenth of the world population are believed to be undernourished or starving... "We're skating on a very narrow margin" says Dr. James D. McQuigg, the government's leading climatologist.
Climatologists: 'Humans just can’t make it warm enough up there to melt all that much ice'
History shows the current goings-on in Greenland to be irrelevant, because humans just can’t make it warm enough up there to melt all that much ice. For example, in 2013, Dorthe Dahl-Jensen and her colleagues published a paper in Nature detailing the history of the ice in Northwest Greenland during the beginning of the last interglacial, which included a 6,000 year period in which her ice core data showed averaged a whopping 6⁰C warmer in summer than the 20th century average. Greenland only lost around 30% of its ice with a heat load of (6 X 6000) 36,000 degree-summers. The best humans could ever hope to do with greenhouse gases is—very liberally—about 5 degrees for 500 summers, or (5 X 500) 2,500 degree-summers. In other words, the best we can do is 500/6000 times 30%, or a 2.5% of the ice, resulting in a grand total of seven inches of sea level rise over 500 years. That’s pretty much the death of the Greenland disaster story, despite every lame press release and hyped “news” article on it.
Former Obama Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Charles McConnell: 'The Clean Power Plan has been falsely sold as impactful environmental regulation when it is really an attempt by our primary federal environmental regulator to take over state and federal regulation of energy.'
'What is also clear, scientifically and technically, is that EPA's plan will not significantly impact global emissions.'
'All of the U.S. annual emissions in 2025 will be offset by three weeks of Chinese emissions. Three weeks.'
