More fraud reported in global warming scam.
The leaked Climategate emails and data that’s sent shock waves through the warming camp lately dealt directly with a British climate data center. Data produced at the NASA Goddard Space Center at Columbia University by James Hansen has been shown to suffer from similar manipulations.
Hansen is a global warming extremist and close advisor to Al Gore, who captured international attention for speeches in which he’s called for Nuremberg style trials against oil executives and Ã¢â‚¬Å“deniersÃ¢â‚¬Â who criticize his work. When questioned by Bush administration officials, he made news when a leftist Washington law firm sued for Ã¢â‚¬Å“whistle blowerÃ¢â‚¬Â status. His claim was that the Bush administration was trying to suppress the truth about catastrophic man-made global warming.
Computer programmer E. Michael Smith and Certified Consulting Meteorologist Joseph D’Aleo looked into the analysis underlying Hansen’s global warming claims. Not surprisingly, they discovered that Hansen’s results were fraudulent, the result of Ã¢â‚¬Å“tricksÃ¢â‚¬Â similar to those used in Britain.
In particular, Smith and D’Aleo discovered that; of some 6,000 weather stations, Hansen cherry-picked about 1,000 that gave higher temperatures and ignored the rest. Since this still resulted in evidence of cooling, he applied a mathematical formula to Ã¢â‚¬Å“hide the decline.Ã¢â‚¬Â The fake results consistently showed warming in support of his political and financial interests.
