First MIT climate program priority? Protect funding…

The MIT letter (here) objecting to the letter sent by Richard Lindzen and other scientists is a good example of what happens when government funding gets out of control. Programs such as MIT depend on it.  Dr. Lindzen has responded here.  MIT is hardly to blame as other institutions would take the very same action if major government funding depends on maintaining and advancing a particular point of view (dogma). Until science is once again the focus no meaningful progress will be made towards lasting solutions to real problems resulting from climate changes.

 

Australia is well on its way to energy poverty

“A combination of green inspired state moratoria on gas exploration, coupled with growing gas export capacity, and politically motivated closures of coal plants, has created a looming shortfall in Australian energy supply.”  click here

California Climate Policies are Self-Defeating, Counter-Productive

“California has committed to moving forward with its job destroying climate policies, regardless of vocal complaints from business leaders.” click here for post at WUWT

Inconvenient Truths About Climate

An excerpt from the The Climate Truth File 2016:

“The scientific reality is that on virtually every claim — from A to Z — the promoters of manmade climate fears are falling short or going in the opposite direction.

 Global temperatures have been virtually flat for about 18 years according to satellite data, and peer-reviewed literature is now scaling back predictions of future warming.

 The U.S. has had no Category 3 or larger hurricane make landfall since 2005 – the longest spell since the Civil War.

 Strong F3 or larger tornadoes have been in decline since the 1970s.

 Despite claims of snow being ‘a thing of the past,’ cold season snowfall has been rising.

 Sea level rise rates have been steady for over a century, with recent deceleration.

 Droughts and floods are neither historically unusual nor caused by mankind, and there is no evidence we are currently having any unusual weather.

 So-called hottest year claims are based on year-to-year temperature data that differs by only a few HUNDREDTHS of a degree to tenths of a degree Fahrenheit – differences that are within the margin of error in the data. In other words, global temperatures have essentially held very steady with no sign of acceleration.

 A 2015 NASA study found Antarctica was NOT losing ice mass and ‘not currently contributing to sea level rise.’

 2016 Arctic sea ice was 22% greater than the recent low point of 2012. The Arctic sea ice is now in a 10-year ‘pause’ with ‘no significant change in the past decade’

 Deaths due to extreme weather have declined dramatically.

 Polar bears are doing fine, with their numbers way up since the 1960s.”

Mr. John Podesta Emails Reveal Media Bias, Manipulation

“From the “say anything” department, comes this email where the League of Conservation Voters asks Hillary’s campaign manager John Podesta to “…help us pressure the evening news programs at CBS, NBC, and ABC to make climate science central to their extreme weather coverage this year?”. ” click here for WUWT

Climate Change RICO Lawsuit Filed

Given the wild claims being made in California and elsewhere it is certainly plausible that more is going on here than meets the eye.

“The lawsuit accuses the defendants of misappropriating tens of billions of dollars from public funds, and re-investing a large part of the misappropriated funds back into the allegedly illegal scheme.  The lawsuit singles out defendant Ceres, Inc., claiming it intends to steal $36 Trillion of public money over the next 36 years.  Workers and pensioners of California and New York are among the most vulnerable, but public funds and even private investments in other states are also in danger, according to the plaintiff.” click here for full post at WUWT

NASA Changed the Data To Get the Answer it Desired?

Sure looks like it here.

Unfortunately, i’ve seen this type of data manipulation in other university contexts.
