Spectacularly Poor Climate Science At NASA Dr. James Hansen of NASA, has been the world’s leading promoter of the idea that the world is headed towards “climate disaster.” There is little evidence to back this up. [Please read full article here]The key point is that in order to use science to back up your theory, the data should support your theory. However, in the case of NASA and Dr. James Hansen, the data has been adjusted to fit the theory. Below are extracts from the full article.
The animated image below shows the changes which Dr. Hansen made to the historical US temperature record after the year 1999. He cooled the 1930s, and warmed the 1980s and 1990s. The year 1998 went from being more than half a degree cooler than 1934, to warmer than 1934.
But the effort wasn't limited to the U.S. record:
He has done the same thing all over the planet. Below is one recent example in Iceland, where he dramatically cooled the first half of the century, and warmed the present. He appears to be trying to erase evidence that there was a very warm period in much of the Arctic around 1940.
If this were just a case of scientific dishonesty, we could all just yawn and go on our way with the thought that the perpetrators would go down in history as buffoons and nothing else would come of this. We would be sadly mistaken. This is the federal government we are talking about. This is tax money we are talking about. What has science to do with it?
