This is getting to be like reporting “dog bites man”: Once again, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught cheating in an effort to sell “man-made climate change” ( http://climatechangedispatch.com/climate-change-skeptics-scoff-as-noaa-quickly-links-global-warming-la-floods/ ).
This time NOAA rushed to publicize, before a scientific peer review could be completed, “research” that supposedly shows that human activity caused torrential rains in Louisiana. Gee, I wonder why no one thought of performing that activity in the Gobi Desert.
University of Colorado’s senior climate scientist, Roger Pielke Sr., called NOAA’s rush to publication, and extravagant claims, “manipulation of science for political reasons.” Ya think? He also rapped NOAA for studying man-made computer models instead of nature. What a pill. Everybody knows computer models are much easier to study–and a lot more cooperative, too.
Please always bear in mind this general principle:
When a certain public policy is strongly advocated by persons with well-earned reputations as liars, swindlers, and thieves, and where such a policy, if enacted into law, would bring them fabulous wealth and greatly enlarge their political power… do not under any circumstances believe them.
