How many times have you heard that? Time and again, I’ve heard that throughout my life…and usually, the speaker was right. But this time, I’m not the one they’re talking to. They’re talking to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The weather dudes and dudettes have screwed up big time this time.
We all know that NOAA has been screwing with the temperature data for years, trying to convince us that we’re in the midst of this hoax called “climate change”, right? I mean, they’ve been found with their fingers in the cookie dough, and now it’s time to pay the piper (another mixed metaphor). This time it’s Judicial Watch who is actually suing NOAA to gain access to raw data. What’s happened is Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with NOAA to gain access to their data from the end of October, 2014 to the end of October, 2015. NOAA failed to respond to the request thinking that if they ignored it, like a quick rain shower, it would go away. Unfortunately, they didn’t realize they were dealing with the pit-bulls of FOIA requests. When Judicial Watch doesn’t get what they want, they have an army of attorneys that know how to get it through other means. That means law suit. And usually it leads to them getting what they want (you’d figure the government would learn that one by now!)
According to the Judicial Watch website, here is what they are looking for:
The methodology and utilization of night marine air temperatures to adjust ship and buoy temperature data;
The use of other global temperature datasets for both NOAA’s in-house dataset improvements and monthly press releases conveying information to the public about global temperatures;
The utilization and consideration of satellite bulk atmospheric temperature readings for use in global temperature datasets; and
A subpoena issued for the aforementioned information by Congressman Lamar Smith on October 13, 2015.
OK, so why is this such a big deal? Well, because the US Government based on the Paris accord that was just signed by John Kerry and Bobo Obama, is about to spend billions of your tax dollars trying to defeat Mother Nature’s will, without any real data that man is causing any real harm. That’s because NOAA, whose job it is to collect environmental data, has been lying to the rest of the world on the data they’ve been collecting. They’ve been fudging the numbers. That, by the way, isn’t an accusation. That has been proven as fact. So in essence, what Judicial Watch is doing is going after NOAA because they no longer have any credibility, at least they won’t when JW is done with them. They are about to be exposed to the core as a group of eco-terrorists following the blindly led direction of Bobo Obama and Al Gore.
Just the mere fact that we’re heading down that path should send off alarm bells. But in the overall scheme of things, with “climate change” rated #6 on the list of hot topics this election season with only 5% of the people concerned with it, it probably won’t be on many people’s radar. But exposing NOAA to the blatant lies that it has been proven to be making IS important. That needs to be exposed, and the people that are involved need to be fired and never work in the industry again. What will they do? Well, there ARE a few bridges out here in the desert that don’t have panhandlers working the streets. They could try that. I understand the hours are long, but the pay isn’t bad. Those people make upwards of $50,000 a year (and its tax free!).
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
