It’s coincidence that Public Relations (PR) and Peer Review (PR) have the same initials, but apparently there’s a connection in Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Climatic Research Unit (CRU) science.
The Impact Group observed that Canada collects "less climate science data per-square-kilometer of any other major country." Anne Thompson <a href="<a href="http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/02/13/oh-canada/" target="_blank">blames</a> the political government, but it was the bureuacracy of Environment Canada and the IPCC that caused the problems when they decided to use science for a political agenda.
The science is settled and the debate is over for the Warmists. However, science continues with the Skeptics, as it should.
Why don't we know who released the emails from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU)? Is it an attempt by the CRU and the University of East Anglia (UEA) to divert even more attention from their involvement in this scandal?
Barack Obama was forced to challenge the cardinal rule of stealth politics: Don’t do anything too extreme or too quickly. This prompted him to bypass the legislative process and use executive orders to achieve his revolution. Given more time, he could have relied on gradualism, the process by which people slowly drift into bizarre patterns of behavior.
Science must have accurate and adequate data; without it, results are meaningless. Inadequate data seriously limits climate research, but scientists and governments who manipulate it for political goals make it impossible. This occurs because most government weather and climate agencies work to create and confirm the results of the IPCC.
Arctic ice pack is melting at approximately 54,000 square kilometers a day as the world warms. Why haven’t we seen this headline? Possibly because when journalists check, it’s the average rate of summer melt as the ice decreases from winter maximum of 14 million square km2 in April toward a minimum of 4.5 million km2 in September. Few people know this much ice melts every summer, but they don’t know a similar amount of ice forms every winter.
No matter what political committees try to absolve corruption of climate science of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), they cannot hide the complete failure of the computer models to make a single accurate prediction. Leaked emails from the CRU received media attention, but the emphasis must shift to the computer models.
History of attempts to distort climate science and use it as a vehicle for political ends is a sequence of shifting goalposts. It moved from global warming to climate change to climate disruptions. CO2 became greenhouse gases then carbon. CO2, a gas essential to plant life for oxygen production and thereby life on earth became a toxic substance.
May 24 2011 is the fifth anniversary of release of Al Gore's movie <em>An Inconvenient Truth</em>. Shortly after release, Lord Monckton identified over "35 serious scientific errors or exaggerations". The film remains uncorrected, and continues to be shown in public schools.
