Government Scientist Gets Fired for Telling the Truth

Global warming is the cornerstone of politically correct science. Yet, a simple logic makes it at best an interesting observation than a provable fact. It is based on a warming trend from 1980 to 1996. The clarion call from this simplistic approach to global climate was that man is putting to many greenhouse gases into the air causing warming. Since then enviormental Nazis have been on the warpath against carbon based energy. This continues despite, by their own methodology, global average temps are the same at the end of 2012 as at the beginning of 1997 though emissions have increased significantly. Now, this is using their own methodology. I won't mention the changes in 1980 to less reporting stations, the questions about data (cont)

manipulation, and the lack of consideration of other factors such as fluctuations in sun cycles, gradual polarity changes, and plate techtonics. It is a complicated enviroment, But it is easy to just take some readings in cherry-picked parts of the world and start the chicken little screaming as the ill-informed and non-critical masses try to explain a single weather event with some general theory. It has become a lucrative business for the Al Gore's of the world and the enviromental Nazis. As usual, follow the money and you will see where government science goes.

When you mention plate tectonics, you put yourself in the camp of the crackpots. Plate tectonics move the continents around. This is very important to the climate of a continent: if it goes to sit over the South Pole, it will have a cold climate! But wait. Continents move about as fast as human fingernails grow. So over the past century, North America may have moved a few inches.

NO WAY can that have any measurable effect on our climate. You're way off base to bring it up.

rivenburg pretty much got you on the plate tectonics.

Next, I'd like you to make up some argument that ignores and refutes how the recorded temperature variations on Mercury, Venus, Mars, and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn just happen to correlate with that of Earth?

Something’s amiss at the Department of Interior. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?”

Fictional book authors operate in a convenient world, unconstrained by facts and experiences of the real world. The antithesis of works of fiction are scientific findings solely based on provable facts and experience. For agenda-driven environmental science, facts can sometime prove inconvenient. It’s far easier to advance an agenda with agreeable science, even if that means creating science...
