  1. Gus sent a 'message' yesterday

    Has anyone asked Gus?

  3. Hate groups collide in Charlottesville. KKK, Antifa, BLM etc. No peaceful protest there.

  5. Via: TEMPERATURES PLUNGE AFTER AUSTRALIA’S BUREAU OF METEOROLOGY ORDERS FIX Date: 04/08/17 Graham Lloyd, The Australian Recorded temperatures at the Bureau­ of Meteorology’s Thredbo Top automatic weather station have dropped below -10C in the past week, after action was taken to make the facility “fit for ­purpose”. A record of the Thredbo Top station for 3am on Wednesday shows a temperature reading of -10.6C. This compares with the BoM’s monthly highlights for June and July, both showing a low of -9.6C. The BoM said it had taken immed­iate action to replace the Thredbo station after concerns were raised that very low temperatures were not making it onto the official record. Controversy has dogged the bureau’s automatic weather station network since Goulburn man Lance Pigeon saw a -10.4C reading on the BoM’s website on July 2 automatically adjust to -10C, then disappear. Later independent monitoring of the Thredbo Top station by scientist Jennifer Marohasy showed a recording of -10.6C ­vanish from the record. BoM initially claimed the adjustments were part of its quality control procedures. But bureau chief executive Andrew Johnson later told Environment Minister Josh­ Frydenberg that investigations had found a number of cold-weather stations were not “fit for purpose” and would be replaced. The BoM has admitted that, in addition to Goulburn and Thredbo Top, stations at Tuggeranong in the ACT, Butlers Gorge and Fingal in Tasmania and Mount Baw Baw in Victoria would be replace­d. An in-house investigation that includes two independent experts has been called. The bureau said it rejected allegations aired in some media outlets that it had sought to tamper with temperature data. It has been reported online that electronic smart cards were allegedly fitted to the BoM’s automatic weather stations, which put a limit on how low temperatures could be recorded in official weather data. The BoM declined to comment ahead of the internal review. “The findings of a review into this matter will be made available after completion,” a BoM repre­sentative said. “We do not intend to publish detail prior to that. “The AWS program is part of the observing systems and operations program, separate from the climate areas.” On her website yesterday, Dr Marohasy said it was not the recording­ devices that were at fault. “To be clear, the problem is not with the equipment; all that needs to be done is for the smart-card readers to be removed,” Dr Marohasy said. “So that after the automatic weather stations measure the correct­ temperature, this temp­erature can be brought forward firstly into the daily weather observation sheet and subsequently into the CDO (climate data online) dataset.” Mr Frydenberg rejected any suggestion that he had prior knowledge of smart cards or the cause of problems which made the stations not fit for purpose. He said he only learnt of the issue with the weather station readings when it was raised by The Australian. Graham Lloyd, The Australian
  6. Al Gore Hypocrite

    Al Gore is more than a hypocrite. He is a fraud!

  9. Homer, politics has nothing to do with my conclusions. Al Gore introduced politics to climate science years ago. If you have to modify actual data to justify projections then you have introduced bias to the conclusions. You have chosen to ignore the scientific method and have chosen to accept the religion of AGW. As far as projections are concerned, global warming is based on climate models and the models are wrong. From a real scientist:
  10. Home, Alexva, when you resort to calling us names, you belong in the smack talk, not here. Anyway about that data manipulation:
  11. Ah the anti-science folks weigh in. You can manipulate data to say anything you want. Such as pasting instrumental temperatures to paleo derived estimates to create a graph that resembles a hockey stick.
  12. Depends on where you start your charting. When you omit the hottest weather from the 1930s it looks bad. When you include that data, today's weather looks pretty good.
  13. EXCLUSIVE: Study Finds Temperature Adjustments Account For ‘Nearly All Of The Warming’ In Climate Data A new study found adjustments made to global surface temperature readings by scientists in recent years “are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data.” “Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published [global average surface temperature (GAST)] data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever – despite current claims of record setting warming,” according to a studypublished June 27 by two scientists and a veteran statistician. The peer-reviewed study tried to validate current surface temperature datasets managed by NASA, NOAA and the UK’s Met Office, all of which make adjustments to raw thermometer readings. Skeptics of man-made global warming have criticized the adjustments. Climate scientists often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data. The new study doesn’t question the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend. Basically, “cyclical pattern in the earlier reported data has very nearly been ‘adjusted’ out” of temperature readings taken from weather stations, buoys, ships and other sources. More:
  14. Here we go again. Leftist hate of successful people. The entire system is broken by years of interference by well meaning idiots. How about cutting out the the abuse of medicaid. BTW, If the rich pay most of the taxes, why can't they have a tax break?
