If The Facts Don't Fit The Theory, Change The Facts

Einstein joked :

If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.

He was mocking fake scientists who tamper with data, like the ones in the US government which create fake temperature graphs.

Sadly by doing the manipulation which that are the politicians and there (bought) scientists are corrupting the public's view of what use to be an honorable profession.

Roy Spencer asks the reasonable question--how does warming cause colding?

Or how does warming cause more snow or the polar vortex or more polar ice? 94 more words

Good analysis but I would expect nothing less here!

About That "97% Science Is Settled" Meme ... Never Mind

Only 50% Of Scientists Blame Mankind For Climate Change In New Study

” Rather than claiming 97 percent of scientists believe in man-made global warming, hopefully now some media outlets will revise that number closer to 50 percent.

Personally I think is less than 50% but 50% is way more accurate that 97% In poles the question format is very important and so without seeing the details all I can say is that its in the right direction!

Proper Use Of Principles

Greenhouse gases are "real" the only issue is what the real sensitivity value is? Hansen and the IPCC think it is 3.0 degrees C per doubling and more current work supports that it is less that half that value (I agree with the half crowd). If the half group is right than the entire concept goes away!

Men Are From Mars - Climate Scientists Are From Venus

Climate scientists blame the high temperatures on Venus on the greenhouse effect.

Given that Venus surface receives very little sunlight, and that nights there are months long with no drop in temperature, it is absurd to compare the Venusian climate to a greenhouse. 30 more words

Its my understanding that Hansen's climate change theories are based on his work that height Carbon Dioxide levels on Venus are the sole reason that Venus is so hot (not with standing that hot women are cool) and that he translated that into the situation here on earth. Its also my understanding that the upper atmosphere where this "heat" was supposed to appear isn't getting hot; so that would seem to me to dis create the whole concept?

Data Torture in Gergis2K

Sir Karl Raimund Popper (28 July 1902 – 17 September 1994) was an Austrian and British philosopher and a professor at the London School of Economics. He is considered one of the most influential philosophers of science of the 20th century, and he also wrote extensively on social and political philosophy. The following quotes of his apply to this subject. If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmations, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our pet theories. Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one, take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory nor the problem which it was intended to solve. S)cience is one of the very few human activities — perhaps the only one — in which errors are systematically criticized and fairly often, in time, corrected
