Yes indeed, S.O.P. for all who work for Obama.
After a many years long campaign, the government is closing some 600 weather stations that they finally admitted were compromised and giving false data, data that distorted overall climate data with false readings that made warming look worse than it was.
They probably still need to close thousands more.
#11031 of 11211 Will Al ever give up the GW scam??

The New York Times, a faithful shill for Al’s snake-oil elixir, following the wagon from town to town, got an advance copy of the U.N. report and gives out with the “good” news: It’s a “near certainty” that humans are responsible for the rising temperatures of recent decades, and warns that by the end of the century all the little people — small children, midgets and others whose growth was stunted by drinking coffee and smoking cigarettes at an early age — will be up to their belly buttons in salt water. The seas will rise by more than three feet.
President Obama tried the other day to elbow Al aside to lead with his assertion that hurricanes are getting worse and that only he has the power to put them in their place. Hurricanes are actually getting not worse, but fewer. Only three major hurricanes have made landfall so far in Mr. Obama’s presidency. Grover Cleveland, who was president between 1885 and 1889, entertained 26 major hurricanes during his presidency, and that was before global warning was invented.
On the contrary, what frustrates Al and the snake-oil industry is that the skeptics can no longer be shut out of the conversation. “We can expect the climate crisis industry to grow increasingly shrill, and increasingly hostile toward anyone who questions their authority,” Kenneth P. Green, a former member of the U.N. panel, predicted three years ago. Another former panelist, Dr. Kimimori Itoh, a Japanese physical chemist, calls the phenomenon “the worst scientific scandal in history. When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.”
That’s too bad, because when science and scientists one day discover a genuine crisis, nobody will listen. We’re up to our ears already in snake oil.

Ah, the Washington Times. Uh huh.
Down here in New Mexico, our friends have a neighbor who's a retired resource prof and he's following the drought. He likes the theory that the jet stream has shifted due to arctic changes. The idea is that the loss of sea ice is causing the loss of rain down here due to jet stream or circulation pattern changes. I recently picked up on it because of this headline, even though I don't plan on running the Grand again.
Unprecedented Cut in Colorado River Flow Ordered, Due to Drought (wunderground.com)
Come to think of it, if the river shrinks below 1,000 cfs, maybe I could canoe it without swimming every 100'.

They did not bother to mention that the 3 states using that water have had massive increases in population and water usage. CA is double from 50 years ago, AZ has 5 times the population, and NV almost 10 times the population. That is a lot of toilet flushing. As for drought we are a desert. Hopefully we get some rain. Our friends spent 5 days in Prescott AZ and it rained 4 of the 5 days they were there. I am sure the firefighters would appreciate rain as well.
If it happened 800 years ago, do you think Al would blame that on Man as well.
GEOFFREY NORMAN says
Reverend Gore, of course, doesn't deny climate change. Climate change has been very good to him, though he hasn't made any notable personal sacrifices to curtail it or, even, set an example of saintliness. Does not fly commercial or live, at last report, in a yurt.
He has, in short, the same sort of relationship with "carbon" that Elmer Gantry had with sin.

"Up to our ears in snake oil". LOL, love it.
In the 70's, these "scientists" told us to prepare for global cooling... nothing happened.
In the 80's, it was the ozone hole that was going to do us in...nothing happened.
Starting about 15 years ago it was global warming...nothing happened.
Now it is the enigmatic "climate change". Well, maybe they finally found something that can't be disputed... the climate has been changing for the last few billion years, so I am sure it will continue to do so.

The only thing successful about the MP was that it was successfully ratified by several countries. It was just another misguided attempt to correct a problem that did not exist.
The only place the ozone thinning was ever noticed was at the south pole. It has probably been that way for a few million years and just recently noticed. Certainly there aren't a lot of people at the south pole running around haphazardly spraying hair care products.

That's not the way I heard it.
Saw a woman on C-SPAN book talk not long ago saying global warming has plateaued. Something along the lines of this story from The Week. Ah, this was the show. She just mentioned GW in passing.

So why isn't Al toning down his lies and rhetoric? He wants to get his CC stocks to shoot back up. He is a GREEDY low life scumbag, that has Lied to the World and is trying to keep the lie alive. He can call those that are skeptical every foul name on national TV, we that have a brain to think for ourselves should reciprocate.

Beats me - are you watching TV or something again? It's been at least a couple of years since I've seen or read anything about Al - really nothing much since the divorce.
 - if this leak is true, then we'll have some new ammo next month to play with. (theweek.com)
