Whilst the allegations of data tampering at NOAA are themselves reason for a full scale fraud investigation, what many commentators are missing is that we now know the reason why NOAA refused to comply with the Subpoena from NOAA’s oversight committee. As Lamar Smith puts it:
“Now that Dr. Bates has confirmed that there were heated disagreements within NOAA about the quality and transparency of the data before publication, we know why NOAA fought transparency and oversight at every turn. Dr. Bates’ revelations and NOAA’s obstruction certainly lend credence to what I’ve expected all along – that the Karl study used flawed data, was rushed to publication in an effort to support the president’s climate change agenda, and ignored NOAA’s own standards for scientific study. The Committee thanks Dr. Bates, a Department of Commerce Gold Medal winner for creating and implementing a standard to produce and preserve climate data, for exposing the previous administration’s efforts to push their costly climate agenda at the expense of scientific integrity.” (Committee Press Statement)
A Subpoena is a legally binding instrument, and it is a criminal offence to fail to comply. As such it was the President’s duty to enforce the law and either insure compliance or prosecute those who failed to obey by the law.
But NOAAgate was not just a few rogue “scientists” pushing their FakeScience. Nor was it the whole of NOAA pushing FakeScience. Instead it was a whole Democratic administration for whom this FakeScience was a religion – a religion that ignored the laws both of man and nature.
The origin of the criminal behaviour at NOAA are simple. The climate continually failed to show the demanded warming, despite the clear attempts by NOAA and NASA to mould garbage data from ground (and tarmac) sensors to tease out a a warming. And after 17 years without warming, the FakeScientists finally cracked.
They gave up any pretence of real science and instead hit on a scheme to add in FakeWarming. They had noticed that the system of measuring ocean temperature had changed from one of of dipping buckets into the sea, to one using Ship intake temperature to one of using buoys (controlled by them). As such warming could easily be created by simply “recalibrating” one of these different methods. In their case they chose to “recalibrate” the far better buoy data to the ship engine intake water temperature.
The result was that a temperature change so small it was arguably just an instrumentation error, could be scaled up massively to completely change the global temperature trend and “get rid of the pause” … something which the Satellites clearly showed existed as global temperature had not changed significantly for nearly 19years.
And what, you may well ask, was the point in putting all those sophisticated satellites up in space to measure temperature – if you then go back to the garbage ground data that was the supposed reason for justifying putting the satellites up in space. The reason is simple: the satellites show the real temperature – and that real temperature does not show their predicted warming.
Undoubtedly as rumours of this unscientific politically motivated changes to global temperature reached Senator Lamar Smith, he stood out against all the FakeNews media and the FakeScientist and demanded that NOAA explain their behaviour.
If NOAA had acted lawfully, all this would have come out before the US election revealing the climate scam for what it is. But Obama was president, he conspired with NOAA’s illegal withholding of their documents. And that was criminal.
