CLIMATEGATE 4.0: Whistleblower Reveals NOAA’s Long History of Manipulating Temperature Data

While there is documented proof that climate change has occurred over the years, a whistleblower is claiming that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association is directly responsible for pushing the existence of man-made “global warming” by forging temperature data.

After retiring as a scientist at the National Climatic Data Center last year, John Bates emerged on the front of the “global warming” debate as a whistleblower to cool the heated battle on man-made climate change by calling attention to the NOAA.

Bates said he decided to speak out after he read an article from the Washington Post titled, “Scientists Are Frantically Copying U.S. Climate data, Fearing It Might Vanish Under Trump.” Bates saw this as a joke, having worked for the NCDC and reportedly seeing the fraud firsthand.

Bates accused Thomas Karl, the lead author of the 2015 NOAA “pause buster” report of trying to “discredit” the temperature pause through “flagrant manipulation of scientific integrity guidelines and scientific publication standards.”

The report originated from the UN in 2012 and shook up the entire scientific community, which cast doubt upon hundreds of models predicting a trend of accelerating warming.

Additionally, Bates told the Daily Mail that Karl did so by “insisting on decisions and scientific choices that maximized warming and minimized documentation.”

“Gradually, in the months after the report came out, the evidence kept mounting that Tom Karl constantly had his ‘thumb on the scale’ — in the documentation, scientific choices, and release of datasets — in an effort to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy,” John Bates said on Climate Etc. blog.

The June 2015 report shows “possible artifacts of data biases in the recent global surface warming hiatus,” which updated the ocean temperature record, was published six months before the UN’s Paris summit.

This chart below provided by climate depot shows a gap of warming for 18 years and 9 months:

Bates is not the only whistleblower who has disputed the report. House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who subpoenaed for NOAA’s internal communications, also alleged that the same study refuted claims that global warming had “paused” or slowed over the past decade, challenging a popular argument used by those who deny that the scientific consensus that man-made pollution is behind global warming.

NOAA denied the subpoena and in December 2015, Judicial Watch subsequently sued for documents that were withheld from Congress in the new climate data scandal.

Smith recently thanked Bates “for courageously stepping forward to tell the truth about NOAA’s senior officials playing fast and loose with the data in order to meet a politically predetermined conclusion.”

“Don’t believe it. The pause is real and in all other data sets. – NCDC-NOAA and Science may end up with egg on their collective faces. It does look a little suspicious that NCDC arrived at this earth-shaking ‘discovery’ after all these years, after ‘massaging’ its own weather-station data, just before the big policy conference in December in Paris,” Physicist Dr. Fred Singer said.

“The global surface temperature data sets are clearly a moving target. So while I’m sure this latest analysis from NOAA will be regarded as politically useful for the Obama Administration, I don’t regard it as a particularly useful contribution to our scientific understanding of what is going on,” climatologist Dr. Judith Curry said.

Congress launched an investigation into NOAA’s data manipulation in 2015. However, this has been going on for far longer than 2015, and it is not the only scandal that the concept of “global warming” has suffered; another scandal dubbed “Climategate” also broke out before the UN climate summit in 2009.

Climategate was the leak of thousands of emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit between climate scientists that suggested they manipulated and hid data. Further, these scientists played a key role in the forming of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the body responsible for producing the reports on global warming.

What’s more, one year later in 2010, the academic Professor Phil Jones, director at University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, admitted that for the past 15 years there has been no “statistically significant” warming. He also admitted that he was horrible at keeping records, something that would be crucial to prove Global Warming existed, reported Daily Mail.

A series of inquiries into the 2009 release found no evidence of scientific malpractice but did criticize some of the scientists for their unwillingness to share their data, including Eugene Wahl of the National Climatic Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, who admitted to deleting e-mails, as requested by Jones.

Despite this ruling, around 1,000 scientists dissented and called Global Warming a fraud in a senate minority report.

But it doesn’t end there. In 2011, right before the UN conference on climate change, another 5,000 emails were leaked, and their release was dubbed Climategate 2.0. The emails were from 1995-2009 and they depicted a conspiracy to cover up more data that seemed to indicate that Global Warming may be a fraud internally, reported Forbes who called the emails incriminating.

“What if climate change appears to be just mainly a multidecadal natural fluctuation? They’ll kill us probably,” Tommy Wills, Swansea University, wrote in March 2007.

“I also think the science is being manipulated to put a political spin on it which for all our sakes, might not be too clever in the long run,” Peter Thorne of the Met Office wrote.
An official at the Environment Department appeared to be pressuring researchers, “I can’t overstate the HUGE amount of political interest in the project as a message that the Government can give on climate change to help them tell their story. They want the story to be a very strong one and don’t want to be made to look foolish.”
In addition to the 5,000 emails, hackers also encrypted an additional 220,000 emails, but never released the key. Instead, they left a cryptic that said, “Every day nearly 16,000 children die from hunger and related causes, the rest, some 220,000, are encrypted for various reasons.

The note added, “We are not planning to publicly release the pass phrase,” reported the NYTimes.

In 2012, Forbes reported that it was doctored data, not U.S. temperatures, that set the record that year.

Then, in 2013, climategate 3.0 happened when documents were released to the Associated Press that showed the government struggling to explain why global warming appears to have slowed down the past 15 years, even though greenhouse gas emissions kept rising.

That answer you can get from Phil Jones, the victim of the original climate gate and founding father of man-made climate change. “There is no statistically significant warming,” he said.

Again, these are the same people who were responsible for the IPCC’s conclusions. This is important because they served the scientific backbone of UN negotiations that ultimately lead us back to 2016 and the Paris Accord, which President Trump is so outspoken against.

They knowingly buried data that didn’t fit their model; you can read 10 years worth of the leaked emails here at Wikileaks.

The telegraph.co.uk reported in 2015 that fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever.

Next, is the case of carbon emissions in which scientists, in 2014, warned that CO2 levels on plant growth had been underestimated by at least 16 percent and that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are overstated, due to failure to take into account how plants absorb carbon dioxide, as reported.

The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center or CDIAC will be shutting down, ceasing operations on Sept. 30, 2017 according to its website.

It’s also worth noting that while science tries to attribute Global Warming to carbon emissions, that, too, has been debunked.

Even The Weather Channel founder John Coleman and computer programmer E. Michael Smith have admitted that Global Warming is fraudulent. Further, forget that the 15 years since 2010 haven’t shown a warming period, the New York Times reported in 1989 that there hasn’t been a warming trend since 1895.

NASA is even alleged to be a part of the temperature cover up, according to Coleman, Smith and Dr. Friedrich-Karl Ewert, another German scientist, retired geologist and data expert.

But the conspiracy doesn’t end there, NOAA has had three separate weather satellites explode: NOAA 16, NOAA 13, and the Defense Meteorological Sattelite Program Flight 13. The NOAA 16 and The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 13 exploded during 2015 with the last NOAA 13 happening in 1993. All three were attributed to a faulty battery.

For even more information, Mike Brakey, an engineering physicist and heat transfer specialist, catches NOAA revising historic temperature data all the time on his blog.

Here is a blast from the past from our sister chapter, We Are Change Chicago, confronting Al Gore on his claims about Global Warming:

The Senate voted in 2015 on whether climate change is real or a hoax, and determined that it is real, and humans are not to blame.

With so many scandals heating up on Global Warming with various institutions and over 30,000 emerging scientists against the political agenda, it raises legitimate questions about why the agenda that climate change is not a natural occurrence has been promoted.

Forget our own planet’s cycle, this is happening all over the solar system on other planets as well, which don’t have any carbon producing factories or cars, so what is causing the climate change on other planets? Well, scientists are now blaming solar warming.

Rogue National Park Tweets Climate Facts In Defiance Of Trump Administration

Badlands National Park posted several facts about climate change on its official Twitter account Tuesday afternoon, sharing statistics that might contest the beliefs of President Donald Trump’s new administration.

“Today, the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is higher than at any time in the last 650,000 years. #climate,” the park tweeted on Tuesday.

Trump has called climate change a “hoax” and said he will roll back measures aimed at stopping global warming, sparking concern among climate scientists.

The tweets didn’t last long, and had been deleted by early Tuesday evening.

The tweets were followed by a brief suspension Friday of all National Park accounts. The U.S. Department of Interior was ordered to suspend operations of its Twitter accounts after the National Park Service’s official account retweeted two posts that were unflattering toward the Trump administration. One of the tweets had noted the changing language around certain issues, including climate change, on the new White House website. The tweets were later removed from the feed, and the National Park Service apologized for sharing them.

The suspension appears to have been lifted in the past few days, based on social media activity on Interior Department accounts.

Representatives for Badlands National Park did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Regardless of your opinion about climate change, it is clear that Badlands’ twitter stunt served as great publicity for the park.

In only 50 Years Humans Are Close To Killing Off Two-Thirds Of All Wildlife

Two-thirds of wild animals will vanish by 2020, largest mass extinction since dinosaurs.

“At some point the earth is going to say ‘enough.”

A damning new report from the World Wildlife Fund has found a precipitous decline in the world’s animal populations as thousands of species scramble to survive against a sole enemy: humans.

The 2016 version of WWF’s biennial Living Planet Report, published Thursday, found a 58 percent overall decline in vertebrate populations from 1970 to 2012, the latest year with available data. The nonprofit warned that if current trends continue, the world could lose more than two-thirds of wildlife by 2020.

“As humanity continues to demand more and more of the earth and puts pressures on our natural capital, what we’re seeing is the fraying of wildlife,” said Colby Loucks, senior director for the WWF’s Wildlife Conservation Program.

Humans have affected the entire spectrum of vertebrate life ? fish, birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, the report says. The document’s warning of vanishing wildlife refers to total population size, not the number of species that will go extinct. That’s an entirely different problem.

we_are_in_the_midst_of_a_sixth_mass_extinction_by_armonah-d5fc0pt-png

Loucks linked wildlife losses to what he called the “five horseman” of the environmental apocalypse: habitat loss, over exploitation, pollution, invasive species and climate change. Those factors have undercut the 3,706 species documented by the WWF on land and in ocean and freshwater habitats.

Freshwater species have been hit hardest, with populations declining 81 percent, according to the report. The freshwater biome covers less than a 0.01 percent of the planet’s surface, but holds about 1 in 10 known wildlife species.

“There’s less of the cuddly panda phenomenon going on there, because humans need water to survive, to grow crops,” Loucks said, noting that “oftentimes we see freshwater for human use,” and not for conservation.

Why are there massive die offs of different species of animals around the world ?

Humanity has expanded so much ? clear-cutting rainforests, poaching big game, overfishing the seas ? that it now requires the equivalent of “1.6 earths to provide the goods and services we use each year,” the report says.

WWF ranks what it calls the “ecological footprint” of this consumption ? basically the amount of resources a human lifestyle requires in a defined region. Rich nations, including the United States, Canada and Australia, have some of the biggest footprints in the world.

“I don’t think people really know the extent of these declines,” Loucks said. “Ultimately, we’re going to need collective action to try and maintain both humans and what we need, as well as the natural world.”

WWF ranks what it calls the “ecological footprint” of this consumption ? basically the amount of resources a human lifestyle requires in a defined region. Rich nations, including the United States, Canada and Australia, have some of the biggest footprints in the world.

“I don’t think people really know the extent of these declines,” Loucks said. “Ultimately, we’re going to need collective action to try and maintain both humans and what we need, as well as the natural world.”

Other major endeavors this year documenting animal populations have revealed similarly shocking declines. The first full census of African elephants found a 30 percent drop across the continent in just seven years. Wide swaths of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef have become a coral graveyard. Even the loneliest frog on Earth died, a symbol of “the extinction crisis.”

The WWF report says there’s still time to stop mass extinction. Major worldwide initiatives to halt climate change and recent shifts toward renewable energy ensure we are not “starting from scratch,” the report says.

“The facts and figures in this report tend to paint a challenging picture, yet there is still considerable room for optimism,” the report reads. “If we manage to carry out critically needed transitions, the rewards will be immense.”

Changes should include a revamped food system that balances human need with planetary capacity.

“Sustainability and resilience will be achieved much faster if the majority of the Earth’s population understand the value and needs of our increasingly fragile Earth,” the report says. “A shared understanding of the link between humanity and nature could induce a profound change that will allow all life to thrive.”

Loucks noted that such changes are “really, really hard” and mandate long-term thinking.

“When we’re going to start seeing impacts more locally, your favorite lake dries up or your favorite species is no longer there, maybe at that point you start thinking longer term,” he said. “Each individual is going to have their threshold when they’re going to start saying, ‘Wow, I care.’

“But at some point the earth is going to say ‘enough.’ And that’s going to be catastrophic.”

George Soros Paid Al Gore Millions To Lie About Global Warming

Via http://yournewswire.com/

Newly leaked documents reveal that billionaire George Soros bribed former Vice President Al Gore with millions of dollars in order to fabricate data about global warming. 

According to a document published by DC Leaks, Soros used his Open Society Institute to pay Al Gore $10 million dollars per year in order to make Gore exaggerate claims about man-made climate change to the public.

Dailycaller.com reports:

“U.S. Programs Global Warming Grants U.S. Programs became engaged on the global warming issue about four years ago, at George Soros’s suggestion,” reads a leaked OSI memo.

“There has been a budget of $11 million for global warming grants in the U.S. Programs budget for the last several years,” the memo reads. “This budget item captures George Soros’s commitment of $10 million per year for three years to Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, which conducts public education on the climate issue in pursuit of creating political space for aggressive U.S. action in line with what scientists say is necessary to put our nation on a path to reducing its outsize carbon dioxide emissions.”

 It’s unclear what year the memo was sent, but the Gore co-founded Alliance for Climate Protection (ACP) was established in 2006 and lasted until it became The Climate Reality Project in July 2011. In 2008, the Alliance launched a $300 million campaign to encourage “Americans to push for aggressive reductions in greenhouse gas emissions,” The Washington Post reported.

ACP got $10 million from the Open Society Institute (OSI) in 2008, according to the nonprofit’s tax filings. OSI handed over another $5 million to ACP in 2009, according to tax filings. The investigative reporting group ProPublica keeps a database that has OSI tax returns from 2000 to 2013. TheDCNF could not find other years where OSI gave money to ACP.

 OSI is primarily a grant-making nonprofit that hands out millions of dollars every year to mostly left-wing causes. Now called the Open Society Foundations, Soros’s nonprofit has handed out more than $13 billionover the last three decades.

OSI didn’t only plan to fund Gore’s climate group to promote global warming policies in the U.S., OSI also planned on giving millions of dollars to spur the “youth climate movement.”

“This budget item also allows for the renewal of U.S. Programs’ long-standing support of the Energy Action Coalition, which is the lead organizer of the youth climate movement in the U.S., the memo reads.

“We are also including a placeholder for an additional $2 million, pending discussion about and development of OSI’s global warming agenda,” the memo reads. “There is a memo from Nancy Youman in the strategic plans binder that recommends pathways forward for OSI on the climate issue – in the U.S., as well as in other parts of the Open Society Network.”

Intense Floods Sweep Through Maryland and Delaware VIDEO

Severe Flash Flood Hits Maryland/Delaware Over the Weekend

Unbelievable video shot by Dave Arditti during Saturday night’s flash flood in Northern Maryland. Watch as he and several other men rescue a woman from her car floating down Main St right in front of  their family business, Still Life Gallery, located in Ellicott City, MD. at about 8:30pm July 30th. Dave was the one at the top of the human chain holding onto the next man’s hand while filming with the other.

“The man who got washed away was incredibly lucky to make it” Said Sara Arditti 

The historic storm struck hardest just north-west of Baltimore County. Very close to home with over 5 inches of rain falling where I live in Salisbury,Md. In other areas thunderstorms dropped 8-9 inches of rain in under 3 hours, resulting in massive flash flooding; “another thousand-year flood.” People from all over the South and South East of America have experienced similar floods recently. A 1.5 °F warmer atmosphere may not sound like much, but it means there’s 6 percent more water overhead, and that is more fuel for extreme summer rains like this one.


Rain-bomb-thumb-1

Ever heard of a rain bomb? Also known as a microburst? Nope? Nah, me neither! Rain bombs are a rare weather phenomenon where hot, dry air rises and mixes with heavy rain-bearing clouds. The hot air then evaporates the water droplets in the cloud, causing a swift cooling of the air around them, which starts to sink. The descending cool air pulls the remaining raindrops with it, creating the mother of all downpours.


The massive burst of precipitation sent a wave of floodwaters cascading down the hillsides in the historic downtown area where it turned into a wall of water smashing it’s way through Main Street, sweeping cars, trees, signs all downhill, sending restaurant-goers scurrying for higher ground and carving away the road and sidewalks, leaving behind debris and massive sinkholes.

Two people in cars that were swept away died in the floods, according to officials in Baltimore County, where their bodies were found nearly two miles down the Patapsco River.

Records are not kept for rainfall in Ellicott City specifically, though residents used to moderate flooding events said this one was the worst in recent memory. The last major flood to hit Ellicott City was in 2011, and this one was about 3 feet higher, said Jason Elliott, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service’s Baltimore/Washington forecast office. These extreme rain events are way up over the last 50 years across the Northeast U.S. and the fact that the oceans are the warmest on record is not something to over look. The warmer ocean temperatures are “an obvious factor” according to on air meteorologist Dan Satterfield

1 in 1,000 Year Rainfall Event. So says NOAA;  with nearly 6″ of rain falling in 90 minutes, rainfall totals approaching 10″ north and west of Baltimore Saturday night.

Based on records for a gauge five miles away in Woodstock, there is a less than 0.1 percent chance of such intense rainfall happening in any given year, Elliott said — making this a once-in-1,000-years storm.

“We were in an extremely moist air mass leading up to this, and to some extent, still are,” Elliott said. “Every bit of moisture there was to wring out of the atmosphere after this heat wave we’ve had all came out mainly over that one hour.”

The difference for Ellicott City was that it was caught in an area where, as one storm system moved off to the east, another developed right behind it. Other parts of the region saw a single 30- or 45-minute burst of heavy rain, instead, Elliott said.

The storm also stacks up with record-breaking rainfall events around the region in recent years.

Warming Waters. So far we haven’t seen a significant uptick in hurricanes in the Atlantic basin, but the Pacific (bigger and even warmer) has seen record numbers of extreme category 5 hurricanes and typhoons in recent years. Graphics above: Climate Central.

Conditions may be ripe for a future Tropical Storm Earl, currently aimed at Mexico’s Yucatan.
