Scientists seek better way to do climate report
WASHINGTON (AP) – A steady drip of unsettling errors is exposing what scientists are calling “the weaker link” in the Nobel Peace Prize-winning series of international reports on global warming.
The flaws – and the erosion they’ve caused in public confidence – have some scientists calling for drastic changes in how future United Nations climate reports are done. A push for reform being published in Thursday’s issue of a prestigious scientific journal comes on top of a growing clamor for the resignation of the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The work of the climate change panel, or IPCC, is often portrayed as one massive tome. But it really is four separate reports on different aspects of global warming, written months apart by distinct groups of scientists.
No errors have surfaced in the first and most well-known of the reports, which said the physics of a warming atmosphere and rising seas is man-made and incontrovertible. So far, four mistakes have been discovered in the second report, which attempts to translate what global warming might mean to daily lives around the world.

Scientists seek better way to do climate report
I’m not a PhD. I don’t play one on TV, but I can sleep at a Holiday Inn if that will make me as credible as these climate change and Glo-Bull Warming nuts-jobs.
I don’t think a PhD, in and of itself, makes you any more intelligent than a person with a lesser degree. A PhD means you spent a lot of time in your studies and your dissertation impressed a group of other PhDs. It doesn’t automatically make you a genius. In fact, I can think of at least one PhD that I know of that’s nothing more than a well spoken idiot.
But, I digress. ðŸ˜ˆ
All of these scientists, buoyed by the efforts of Al Gore and the United Nations, are feeding the world a mix of rehashed Globull warming nonsense. And now that they have been caught in a few less than factual answers, it’s not so much Globull warming as it is Climate Change!
Semantics, the well educated idiots best friend. ðŸ˜›
It’s been a dismal winter for climate scientists after the high point of winning the 2007 Nobel, along with former Vice President Al Gore, for championing efforts to curb global warming and documenting its effects.
_In November, stolen private e-mails from a British university climate center embarrassed a number of scientists for their efforts to stonewall climate skeptics. The researchers were found to have violated Britain’s Freedom of Information laws.
_In December, the much anticipated climate summit of world leaders in Copenhagen failed to produce a meaningful mandatory agreement to curb greenhouse gases.
_Climate legislation in the United States, considered key to any significant progress in slowing global warming, is stalled.
_Some Republican U.S. senators, climate skeptics and British newspapers have called for Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, to resign. They contend he has financial conflicts of interest involving his role with the climate panel and a green-energy foundation he set up. He has vigorously denied any conflicts.
_And in recent weeks, a batch of mistakes have been uncovered in the second of the four climate research reports produced in 2007.
Here’s the deal science guys; you presented a crock of CRAP to the public. Some weak minded libbers and tree huggers bought into it 100%, hook, line and sinker.
Al Gore won a Nobel prize for his part in this fraud. The United Nations tried to gain some sense of credibility by riding his coat-tails, and those of the egghead climate alarmists. These guys need to try using SCIENCE and TRUTH instead of sensationalism!
In the news right now is this: Storm pounds snowbound Mid-Atlantic, East Coast, the 2nd blizzard to hit the East Coast in recent weeks.
WASHINGTON (AP) – A blizzard howled up the East Coast on Wednesday, making roads from Baltimore to New York City so treacherous that even plow drivers pulled over and bringing more misery to a Mid-Atlantic region poised to have its snowiest winter on record.
In Pennsylvania, the governor closed large stretches of major highways because the second major storm in less than a week was making travel too risky. In Washington, snow fell so hard that people on the National Mall could not see the Capitol. Many in the region were still without power from the historic storm over the weekend, and even more were expected to lose it during this one.
“The snow has just been relentless,” said Washington Fire Chief Dennis L. Rubin, a D.C. native who said the back-to-back storms are like nothing he has ever experienced. “It doesn’t seem like we’re getting much of a break.”
Up to 16 inches fell in parts of western Maryland and Reagan National Airport in Washington had nearly 9 inches by midday, just short of the amount needed to make it the snowiest winter on record in D.C. That was on top of totals up to 3 feet in some places from the weekend storm. And it was still snowing.
The streets of downtown Philadelphia, also hard hit by the last storm, were nearly vacant as people heeded the mayor’s advice to stay home. In Arlington, Va., streets that had been packed with people playing in the snow over the weekend were also empty.
So, I just have to ask, how’s that Globull Warming thing working out for you?
It’s 37Â° here in my part of Texas. Not too bad actually, but we’re supposed to get wet snow here tomorrow. We had low temps in the mid teens 2 weeks ago. That’s not going to happen this time around, so, it’s all good here.
By the way, where in the hell IS Al Gore? ðŸ˜•
