Thanks in part to Michael Mann Climate Alarmists like President Obama are wasting billions of dollars in Climate Change mitigation policies in a futile effort to regulate Climate Change . http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/10644867/We-have-failed-to-prevent-global-warming-so-we-must-adapt-to-it.html What is even more despicable is that the billions of tax payer dollars he is spending on Climate Mitigation is actually doing more harm to the environment than good. All pain for no gain.
The land use issues involved in current wind and solar energy initiatives are so horrific that they might be accurately described as a war on nature. If one does the math the US would have to dedicate 500,000+ square miles or approx. 15% of her entire land mass to solar to provide all of the US energy needs. Wind is no better. Wind energy providers in the US provide between 25 and 50 acre buffer zones for each wind mill and many of these wind farms are gobbling up prime farmland in the process; reducing America’s ability to produce food. Bottom line wind and solar are not ready for primetime that kill thousands of birds, bats and eagles and in the deserts of California and Arizona birds are literally burned alive when in flight over the vast array of solar panels that scar the desert. Climate Alarmists like Mann’s zealotry in pushing these currently unsustainable solutions boarders on fascistic. And as with all fascism it is never the poor or the environment that benefit from such efforts, but the corrupt and incestuous political and economic elites.
In today’s post, I’ll consider a fifth investigation – by the NOAA Office of the Inspector General OIG here- and show that, like the other four considered so far, Mann’s claims that it “investigated” and “exonerated” Mann himself were untrue. In addition, I’ll show that Mann’s pleadings misrepresented the findings of this investigation both through grossly selective quotation and mis-statement. Finally, the OIG report re-opened questions about Mann’s role in Eugene Wahl’s destruction of emails as requested by Phil Jones. In Mann’s pleadings, Mann claimed that each of the investigation reports was “commented upon in the national and international media”. But, in this case, much of the coverage focused on renewed criticism of the apparent obtuseness of the Penn State inquiry committee. The episode even included accusations of libel by Mann against CEI’s Chris Horner as well as a wild and unjustified accusation of “dishonesty” by Mann against myself.

The National Academy of Science should rename themselves as The National Academy of Science Disinformation.
The National Academy of Sciences just released a new temperature graph (black and brown) which has been massively altered since their 1975 report (red.) Note that they have eliminated most of the 1940-1970 cooling.
Here is why the have to eliminate the the 1940-1970 cooling and the 1940 spike. The next graph appends the post 1970 2014 data to the 1975 data, normalized to 1968. If they didn’t tamper with the data, there is no global warming since 1940.
In 1978, NOAA reported 0.5C global cooling from 1960-1965. NAS has almost completely erased that.
This graph shows the 1978 NOAA data in red, and the 2014 NAS data in black/brown. NAS has warmed 1965-1975 temperatures by about 0.3C.
Bizarre: Anti-Defamation League apparently gives a green light to defamation of climate skeptics by comparing them to Holocaust Deniers
It appears the Anti Defamation League is oblivious to the fact that anti fossil fuel policies that deny poor access to cheap and reliable energy from fossil fuel are responsible for untold death from fuel poverty. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/03/15/james-hansens-policies-are-shafting-the-poor/
Boy, this is ugly, and I hope this boils down to simply an error in judgement by a lower tier administrator because this is like some bizzaro-world episode; on one hand the Anti-Defamation League is coming down against the “…type of comparison diminishes and trivializes the Holocaust.“, while on another they are giving a “get out of jail free card” to the people who have repeatedly done that very thing over several years.
Two telephone calls and two emails today requesting comment from ADL’s Southeast Interim Regional Director Shelly Rose have gone unanswered. She’s aware of my calls. I asked for her directly, gave my name and affiliation, and after a pause on hold her assistant asked if it would be OK to “send you to voice mail”. Ms Rose did provide a copy of the press release below, after I queried the main organization in New York…

Moreover, instead of trying to do something great for mankind Environmentalists are trying to do something great for a 3 inch smelt fish. Saving a 3 inch smelt fish is more important to Environmentalists than the lives of people and farmers in the Central Valley of California who have been denied water that is needed to grow food crops for people. The people most hurt will be the lives of poor people as food prices skyrocket due a manmade drought that will result in scarcity of food supply to feed people. http://www.kcra.com/battle-brewing-over-calfiornias-delta-smelt/24474942#.Uw0ZnVCI4QA.twitter
“: ‘When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an Ice Age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today. There is some correlation, but little evidence, to support a direct causal relationship between CO2 and global temperature through the millennia. The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming.’
A look at the behind the scenes legal battle with the EPA over the ‘social cost of carbon’ and looming carbon tax
The EPA Social Cost Of Carbon criterea is not based on reality
While this submission to OMB from Attorney Menton may look forbiddingly legalistic document to many WUWT readers, a number of you may well have signed one or more of the Amicus Briefs and other materials cited in it.It is important to read this because it provides a window into the future of a potential carbon tax in the USA.
I consider it a “must read” for those of you who are very concerned about the EPA’s current and proposed CO2 –related regulations. EPA uses its Social Cost of Carbon estimates to justify all such regulations. And, these estimates are also being used as recommended starting points for future carbon taxes. Enough said as to why it makes sense to read and think about the submission?

Overwhelming Evidence Of Temp Data Tampering At NASA to “prove” #climatechange theory are being used as a justification to “skyrocket” fuel prices and convert land for food crops to land for biofuel crops to “save the earth” from Climate Change. Climate Change Policies like these are responsible for killing millions via fuel poverty and starvation due to loss of land for food crops to grow biofuel crops. Climate Change data tampering should be designated as a crime against humanity. http://wp.me/p7y4l-lnm
In 1961, there was 100% consensus that the Earth was cooling
In 1978, NOAA published this graph of global temperatures, showing 0.4C cooling from 1958-1960 and 0.7C cooling from 1958-1976
This cooling agreed with other studies done at the time.
But NASA’s current global temperature graph doesn’t show any cooling around 1960
The next graph overlays NOAA 1978 in red on the same section of NASA. You can see that NASA has deleted the unanimously agreed upon late 1950’s warmth and much of the 1970’s cold.
As late as 1981, NASA’s James Hansen knew about this cooling
The National Academy Of Sciences knew about this cooling
NCAR knew about this cooling

Secretary John Kerry should be calling NOAA the flat earthers given the fact their weather forecasts got it so wrong.
By Paul Homewood
Apparently, it’s not just our beloved UK Met Office that failed so miserably to forecast this winter’s weather. It seems that NOAA did not do any better!
Surprised by how tough this winter has been? You’re in good company: Last fall the Climate Prediction Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that temperatures would be above normal from November through January across much of the Lower 48 states. This graphic shows just how wrong the official forecast of the U.S. government was:
The big red blotch in the top map represents parts of the country in which the Climate Prediction Center forecast above-average temperatures. The frigid-looking blue blotch in the bottom “verification” map shows areas where temperatures turned out to be below average.

Climate Change Theory Jumped the Shark a long time ago but con men like Obama keep pushing the lies.
Arctic ice increased 12% in 1972, and did not drop back down to its normal size by late 1974.
FORECAST FOR – FORECASTING – CLOUDY In the long term, climate is cooling off-or is it warming up? As for tomorrow’s weather, even the world’s biggest computer can’t sayfor sure what it will be. Forecasting ‘ A really accurate three-day weather forecast would result in savings of $86-million a year just for growersof wheat in the state of Wisconsin.’ – View Article – NYTimes.com
Now let’s look at the IPCC SAR Arctic sea ice graph, below. The lowermost circle is an approximation what “normal” ice is, based on the description above. By contrast, climate liars start their graphs in 1979 (uppermost circle) and want people to believe that is normal.
