Now that were all in the mood to question extravagantly funded scientists, perhaps we should take a look at the tomfoolery involved in global carbon dioxide monitoring. C02 is the boogy-man, right? Well, it seems that taking a close look at how the big guy puts up the big numbers is in order right about now.
The U.S. NOAA openly admits to producing a CO2 record which contains no actual data. Two of the five NOAA baseline stations are downwind from erupting volcanoes. All five are subject to localized or regional CO2 sources. Hmmm.
Climategate collaborator Dr. Andrew Manning worked with Dr. David Keeling, founder of the Mauna Loa Observatory, where atmospheric CO2 is measured. Manning, whose name appears in 37 Climategate emails, tells BBC:
The goal behind starting the measurements was to see if it was possible to track what at that time was only a suspicion: that atmospheric CO2 levels might be increasing owing to the burning of fossil fuels.
Mauna Loa has been producing a readout which supports Mannings goal by showing steady growth in atmospheric CO2 concentrations since 1959. This is known as the Keeling Curve, a beloved datapoint of Al Gores.
Just thirty miles from the observatory, Kilaueas Pu`u O`o vent sends 3.3 million metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. It has been erupting continuously since 1983. Since 2008 it has been joined by a second eruption even closer to the Observatory from Halema`uma`u Crater at the top of Kilauea. Pu`u O`o sends the equivalent of the yearly CO2 production from an average city of 660,000 people into the air. Air trajectory charts show that most of the air reaching Mauna Loa Observatory first passes over Pu`u O`o and Halema`uma`u.
What about the other 4 baseline monitoring stations? Surprise, surprise. All of them The South Pole, American Samoa; Trinidad Head, CA; and Pt. Barrow, AK are subject to localized, and in some cases regional, CO2 influences.
The first casualty of modern progressivism is truth.
The MSM is suppressing ClimateGate.
Get the word out. Email this to everybody (best ClimateGate clips):
This is the first place I have read about this information. I don't know how these guys sleep at night.
