Is the Western Climate Establishment Corrupt? Part I
JoNova ^ | October 5th, 2010 | Joanne

Posted on 10/16/2010 7:14:20 AM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

For months now, behind the scenes, David and I have discussed just how powerful questions can be. Sometimes it’s not what you know, but what you ask that makes the most powerful point.

For his Heartland presentation last Friday, David delivered a themed compilation of example after example of the Western Climate Establishment allowing mistakes, errors or biases to accumulate — each factor on it’s own might be hard to pin down, but the sum total of actions (and inactions) forms a wholly consistent pattern.

This is Part I. These photos speak for themselves, but as far as I know, they haven’t been assembled in one web page before and David stopped waiting for me to get the time to annotate them and has helpfully used red arrows so even the less technically minded will “get” the implications.

You don’t need to have a PhD to know that the thermometers used to measure global warming are not placed well. There are at least Two Great Burning Questions here:

Burning Question 1:

NOAA is a $4 billion dollar agency. If they were determined to get the most accurate, reliable measurements possible would they leave so many sensors placed near asphalt, concrete, tarmacs, exhaust vents and fermenting vats of sludge?

Burning Question 2:

If the mainstream media will print Brittney’s tattoo, why don’t they have space to print full color photos showing just how we measure the temperatures that billions of dollars of legislation depends on?

Is the Western Climate Establishment Corrupt?

Part 1: Thermometer Placement Tricks

The public might not understand the science, but they do understand cheating

[The first in a series of articles reviewing the western climate establishment and the media.
Many thanks to Anthony Watts and www.surfacestations.org for material in this first part.]

Why Do They Measure Temperature Like This?

Figure 1: An official thermometer at a waste water treatment plant. It gets extra warming from air conditioning and refrigeration exhaust, concrete, a brick wall, and some mechanical equipment. It is protected by windbreaks. In addition, the effluent flowing under the grates is well above freezing in winter when vapor can be seen rising from the grates. (The red lines show possible heat paths; obviously only a small portion of the heat from each source gets to the thermometer.)

Is the Western Climate Establishment Corrupt? Part I

******************************EXCERPT********************************

More than 80% of thermometers in the official global network are in urban areas or at airports, which are both unnaturally warm localities. Take a look out the window when you fly—the vast bulk of the land is not at an airport or in an urban area.

Isn’t the climate establishment measuring urban warming and airport warming rather than global warming? They have placed their thermometers to measure the growth and use of cities, air conditioners, planes, water treatment plants, cars, buses, trucks, asphalt, concrete, and tarmac. They measure temperature in many of the globe’s warmest localities, but not global temperature. Yet they report those temperatures as “global warming”.

How have they been able to get away with this?

Where are the auditors or the regulators to check on the climate establishment? If a financial organization or drug company tried to pull this kind of deception they would get busted.

"Is the Western Climate Establishment Corrupt?"

Well, what do we talk about first in our attempts to answer this question?

a) The defecation habits of non-domesticated mammals of the genus "Ursidae" in sylvan locations?

b) The use of the observable characteristics, such as means of terrestrial & aquatic locomotion and vocal sounds of certain widespread waterfowl in determining its genus?

Now that I have concluded my feeble attempts to dazzle the "hoi poloi", the "unwashed masses" with my pseudo-scientific jargon, here are my answers to the question.

a) Does a wild bear s*&# in the woods?

b) If is walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck then it is probably a duck.

c) or, in the words of the Man who really does know, "By their fruits shall you know them."

The climate gorebots have pulled off such a fraud and the boy has yelled "wolf" has yelled his last time for me.

If I even see the word "climate", I roll my eyes and go on to the next topic. The left is in a tizzy trying to save a hoax; their money is drying up and they are fevorishly trying to introduce the "new and improved" global warming, or some other climate crisis.

This has always been more of a "make Gore matter" crisis than anything to do with the earth boiling over. His envirogorebots are in lockstep, but all the rest of us care about right now is will it rain tomorrow, and when will the jobs come back. Most Americans certainly do not have the disposable cash to be donating to such a flim-flam scheme as GW...and neither does the government.

The pretend-president is trying to pick up the enviro-gauntlet and run with it, but his days of convincing anyone of anything are about over. The stupid things that come out of his mouth are proof positive that there is no scientist hiding in there and that it's all about taxes and control for him...not saving the earth.

These gorebots are like a woman nagging her husband for a new pair of shoes while their house is burning down...we've got a lot more to worry about right now than climate.

Go to the site and look at the photos. Anybody can tell the data from these sites is biased towards hotter readings than would normally be the case.

If that professor’s testimony can’t convince than nothing can.
