In the midst of ongoing revelations of malfeasance, fraud and lies from the global warming believers, the Obama administration is still using the climate change excuse to increase government power over the economy.
Today, the Daily Mail is reporting that Dr. Phil Jones, the inventor of the infamous hockey stick graph, admits that there hasn’t been any warming at all in the last 15 years and that there have been other warmer periods in history.
The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ‘keeping track’ of the information.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ‘not as good as it should be’.
The data is crucial to the famous ‘hockey stick graph’ used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now – suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ‘statistically significant’ warming.
Every day we are learning of how data was manipulated, destroyed or invented to further the claims of manmade climate change. Despite this, Dr. Jane Lubchenco, administrator of NOAA has announced that she will seek to create a new NOAA Climate Service.
Dr. LUBCHENCO: NOAA is getting more and more requests from all sorts of different places for information about climate: How is the climate changing? How can we plan for the future? How can we prepare our cities? What crops should we be planting, et cetera?
And we realized that although we currently provide a wealth of climate services, we aren’t currently organized to do it most effectively. So on Monday of this week, Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke and I announced the intention of creating a new NOAA Climate Service.
As you mentioned, this would be somewhat analogous to the National Weather Service in providing information for people to use to make decisions, but in this case, about longer-term events instead of the shorter-term events that characterize the weather.
So, while we can’t predict the weather still, and the entire climate change industry is collapsing into a pile of lies, Dr. Lubchenco thinks a climate change service is the best thing to spend taxpayer money on.
We are actually getting millions of requests a year already about: How should coastal cities plan for sea-level rise? How should various other agencies in the federal government or in state governments make plans for everything from roads to managing water supplies? And a lot of that is going to be changing as the climate changes.
Millions of requests? Really? I’m gonna have to see those records. In fact, I’m gonna go ahead and flat out accuse Dr. Lubchenco of lying. I don’t for one minute think that NOAA has received millions of requests for climate predictions.
Here’s the thing. Although Dr. Lubchenco is the head of NOAA, she isn’t a meteorologist. She is a biologist who’s “…research interests include biodiversity, climate change, sustainability science, and the state of the oceans.”
Following her confirmation to head NOAA and to serve as Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere, Lubchenco declared that science would guide the agency and that she expects it to play a role in developing a green economy
Yet another environmental socialist with an agenda.
