See the big gaps in the recent data in Canada, Greenland, Africa, South America, parts of western Asia, parts of Australia.

I have to thank two individuals for giving me a reason to do this research and write this article. The first is fellow Hubber Storytellersrus. She recently left a comment on my article about the way forward in 2010 and advices me that my ideas on the CAP and Trade legislation were naïve and that it was a complicated issue better left to experts. So first let me say all the opinions expressed here are my own and do not represent any organization, group, or other individuals. When I speak (write) it is my view and you are all welcome to agree or disagree.

That comment led me to intensify my study of the Nat Gas and Oil and Carbon Credits issues on my own when Whalllah! I get an unsolicited email from my brother Bill. Now let me tell you a bit about Bill. He is a Purdue Engineering School Graduate, and is an industrial engineer. He studies data for a living. But what you should also know that Bill is a rare breed as he is one of the guys that does what he does for a living because that’s what he is. That is to say my brother when confronted with a glass of water that others would see as half empty or half full, Bill sees it at 50% volume and will immediately start doing the fluid dynamics computations in his head for more efficient distribution and replenishment. That’s Bill that’s what he is. His political biases are unknown to me as we live 500 miles apart and when we see each other we have other stuff to talk about.

So when I received an email that says you’ve got to tell people about this, I take him seriously. Now to be fair and so you understand I’m not pushing anyone’s agenda. He sent me a link to a site –American Thinker – That is unabashedly biased and conservative. They say so in their “About Us” tab. So suspicions were raised and off I went to check their data. Which is included in the links below.

KUSI TV San Diego-The only independent TV station in the San Diego Television Market. Further more John Coleman did the Video Report and John’s credibility goes back a long way for many of us; he was doing weather at Good Morning America in the 70’s. This is a guy America has trusted for many, many years. So now I’m listening loud.

The next source checks were the Authors of the report “Climategate: Leaked Emails Inspired Data Analyses Show Claimed Warming Greatly Exaggerated and NOAA not CRU is Ground Zero” This report was compiled by Meteorologist Consultant Joseph D’Aleo, and Computer Analyst E.M Smith. Can’t find any political bias in these two. So I am now paying attention to their preliminary report. You should too; it’s only ten pages but the information presented is an astounding indictment of the National Oceanographic and Atmosphere Administration and in particular the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN) and concludes NOAA is “seriously complicit in data manipulation and fraud.”

These allegations are made by the GHCN’s systemic elimination of data collection points throughout the globe(from 6000 in 1989 – to less than 1500 today); not by closing them down mind you; but by failing to include them in the data. To top that off the ones kept are systemically biased towards warmer temperature reading. There now only 35 of 600 data points in use for all of Canada just one in use for everything North of 65 deg Latitude, five for the great state of California, four in Los Angeles, and one in San Francisco, (none in the mountains), and so on. Even after that the temperature data used is ‘homogenized’ and manipulated with a warming bias, then compared to statistics gathered when all 6000 points were used, furthering the bias towards warming.

Russia issued a special report claiming data manipulation as only 25% of the stations were used to report temps for 40% of its territory.

This of course puts the entire thesis of global warming, and Carbon Dioxide emissions into question, and thus Cap and Trade Legislation as well. So now I ask the question, if we continue with a whole new tax and a new exchange where carbon credits are going to be bought and sold, Who is going to profit? This is a question unanswered in the legislation thus far, but I just get the feeling it’s certainly not going to be you or me. I would suspect we need to look to the left and see who’s on the sidelines ready to get involved with “trading” these credits like cattle or corn futures or maybe currency futures like maybe George Soros ( a strong supporter of the President). That’s not to say he is or isn’t a designated Carbon Trader, but business is business and traders don’t care about the commodity; they get paid for executing the trade. Somewhere in this mess there is a money trail. It’s time we started looking for it.

Additionally, since the Al Gore Book and Movie "An Inconvenient Truth" is currently being taught in our public school systems as environmental truth; it now seems it was based on junk science data we need to get that out of our schools now.

      wyes lets GO wayyy BACk Back Back all the way to the mid Cretaceous that’s approximately 100 million years ago for you non-geologic folks. It was estimated by a collaboration of Professors (1) in the Applied Science Department at NYU (Rampino et al) that Carbon-dioxide releases associated with a mid-Cretaceous super plume and mountain building activities in the Ontong-Java Plateau have been suggested as a principal cause of the mid-Cretaceous global warming. CO2 emissions resulting from super-plume tectonics could have produced atmospheric CO2 levels from 3.7 to 14.7 times the modern pre-industrial value of 285 ppm (that’s1100 to 4000 ppm). Based on the temperature sensitivity to CO2 increases used in the weathering-rate formulations, this would cause a global warming of from 2.8 to 7.7 degrees Celsius that is 37-44 degrees Fahrenheit (toasty) over today's global mean temperature. Altered continental positions and higher sea level may have been contributed about 4.8 degrees C to mid-Cretaceous warming. Thus, the combined effects of paleogeographic changes and super-plume related CO2 emissions could be in the range of 7.6 to 12.5 degrees C, within the 6 to 14 degrees C range previously estimated for mid-Cretaceous warming. TRANSLATION- the earth was warmer … why yes global warming your correct BUT what caused the “Global warming?” Was it dinosaurs in hotrods?

      j arnold - I concur with you, we've got to follow the money and figure this one out; and more importantly we have to get good info. The folks that made this report are not beholding to anyone that I can determine in government or out, so from here we have to keep following up and make sure we really know what we are doing and how to fix it.

      I have one set of simple observations:

      Everyone here agrees that data can be manipulated, and expresses their surprise that they were duped into believing in Global Warming.

      Yet I ask, what is the profit of inventing global warming? Why would someone want to do that, simply to prophecy doom and give the trees they love to hug cleaner air?

      Then I ask, what is the profit of discrediting global warming? Big oil, big coal, and big electricity certainly know the profit of that... their entire companies have a vested interest in people NOT believing their products are destroying our earth.

      So while I find myself unable to say who is telling the truth, or even find facts I can believe are not skewed... I AM inclined to believe that we'll find our data manipulation to be the work of those who's motivation is their company's well being, and not those who's motivation is to save our planet.

      It is all of our responsibility to find the truth in all of this, and never believe what we read immediately. Facts, we all agree, can be skewed or mistaken. How and why they are is the path that will lead us to the truth.

      Hello Hmrjmr1 this was an interesting read and I when I saw An Inconvenient Truth because I was giving Mr Gore the benefit of the doubt I knew it was so exaggerated and I didnt't believe it and they are teaching this Al Gore crap in our schools? Are they teaching that this guy invented the internet too?? good hub.

    • Hmrjmr1 profile image

      Dan - Thanks for commenting! I concur, that's why we have to study it for ourselves and come to a conclusion based on data with integrity.

      BPOP - Thanks for stopping by! Yep we gotta fix the science, and get down to fixing what needs fixing. As for the Al Gore thing, the science is junk that makes the book and the movie so as well. To be brutally honest, The data manipulation identified in the report has taken away any accountability for the books conclusions since they were based on bad data.

      This hub reminds me of two things I have learned in the past.

      First, you can manipulate statistics to say just about anything. You can see this everywhere, from advertising wars, to fans arguing about who the better baseball player is.

      Second, scientists have a disturbing tendency to throw out data they can't explain and just keep trying until they can prove their hypotheses. (See for an interesting article on this)

      Combine the two of these, and add a political charge to it, and you can't really believe anything that anyone says on either side. I am quite sure our actions are doing some damage to the earth, but it is nowhere near as disastrous as the left would have you believe, or as meaningless as the right would have you believe.

      Storytellersrus - I wanted to make sure I double checked, and nowhere did I state or imply that you told me I wasn't authorized an opinion. That would have been a whole different argument. Further I think I accurately characterized my summation as here (in quotes) is the portion of your comment that stimulated me to further research,

      "I don't know much about Health Care, but my husband is in the Oil and Gas business and I studied this area in college, so this is one area where I know your opinions are a bit naive. Enthusiastic, yes, but things just aren't that simple.

      This President's reign has opened my eyes to the reality that it is very easy to come up with solutions for problems when viewing them from the outside in. When moved inside, the issues become extremely complex and it is easy to lose your way. "

      And having recognized that things aren't that simple I have begun to do more homework on studying the legislation at hand. I thank you for that, and in deference to you; I simply made it clear that many other independent voters may well differ with my opinion.

      Now as to the other pollution issues you raised, from my limited reading so far, I am not certain that the legislation in question (HR 2454) will solve any of it. Further the independent report I have cited makes no conclusion about global warming but clearly shows the science is not only in question since 1990 but is in fact bias.

      So recognizing I do not have all the answers, and I would certainly like some, I also know what any high school chemistry student would know, when conducting a study, Garbage In Garbage Out. The fact that it is so is a matter that every voter ought to take seriously as now instead of making progress based on reliable data we have to waste time trying to figure out what is really happening in this arena.

      I would not assume that because I point this out that I am indifferent to environmental issues. I share each and all of your stated concerns and many more.

      My study and comments will in fact continue and I say Thank you with out equivocation for your inspiration to do so.

      Well done Hmr. I really appreciate your research on this matter. I have read so many reports by credible scientists that disagree with current thought about climate change that I am highly suspicious of those who are staunch supporters. I believe that this movement has more to do with the redistribution of wealth than global warming. Having just said that, I also admit that I am not an expert, but instead rely on the expertise of others to form an opinion. I think we need to look into this further before enacting any policies. And yes, get Al Gore's book out of our schools.

      Okay, first of all, I did NOT say you should leave energy issues to the experts. I simply said that it is more complicated than you represented and that I knew this because I studied Energy Resource Management in graduate school and that my husband had been making somewhat of a living in the oil and gas business for 25 years. I did not say you didn't have a right to an opinion.

      SO here is MY opinion...

      I don't know much about the Global Warming debate, though I have heard arguments from both sides. What I DO know is that I cannot drink the water from mountain streams anymore because it is polluted and that is not all from urinating animals. I know that there are bodies of water that burn. I know that when I look at Denver some days, there is a brown cloud hanging over the city. I know that children are having respiratory problems and that nutritionally void fast food has created obsese children and the list goes on and on.

      Sure, these things might not have much to do with Global Warming. But they do illustrate logically that man can harm the environment and future generations in pretty obvious ways.

      The problem amulets is that the science that told us global warming was happening is false. So now no one knows if it is even taking place, some think that we may even be cooling instead of warming. It was very poorly done as so much of the world relies on this data. Thanks for stopping by and Commenting

      Well, Global warming is going to hurt the future generation and if nothing is to be done now. I do hope that people who are contributing to Global warming start thinking about their future generation and save the world.

      WMH - That's one I've known about for some time since a friend of mine had to take it to the school board to get the class to be presented a differing point of view that her daughter was in. In fairness, the data presented by NOAA is the world wide holy grail of the Global Warming Thesis and being a US Government entity has been trusted. She won but not with out a fight and I would suspect it was just for that one class..Keep vigilant!!

      This was a good hub albeit something I really keep track of and I knew the data was off and there were things rotten in Denmark so to speak.....WHAT I DIDN'T that they are teaching some garbage in school that Gore wrote....I mean come on....they take prayer and the pledge of allegiance out of the school systems and teach Gore as truth and something to follow????? And we wonder what is wrong with our country...sorry to go on so long, but this is wrong, wrong, wrong....not your hub...what they are shoving down childrens throats .....This has been a good read Hmrjmr1.....shall we have a book burning at the schools next??? (they have tea parties don't they? LOL )
