From Russia With Love

So tell us, Algore, are you feeling it yet?

(It’s at the bottom section of the article, but here are a few excerpts with our highlights added. Do read the rest, though)

On Tuesday, the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) issued a report claiming that the Hadley Center for Climate Change based at the headquarters of the British Meteorological Office in Exeter (Devon, England) had probably tampered with Russian-climate data.

The IEA believes that Russian meteorological-station data did not substantiate the anthropogenic global-warming theory.

The deuce you say? And thank you for, correctly, adding the “anthropogenic” bit. If only the hysterics of the Church of Gore had the honesty to say that instead of calling it Global Warming Climate Change so they can get their jollies from calling people questioning the man-made component of warming “climate deniers/denialists/Nazis/evil elves/whatever”.

Yeah, we’re “denying the climate”, that’s for sure. Earth never had one and it never changed. Careful with that strawman, lest it catches fire and increases your carbon footprint.

But we digress…

Analysts say Russian meteorological stations cover most of the country’s territory, and that the Hadley Center had used data submitted by only 25% of such stations in its reports.

Over 40% of Russian territory was not included in global-temperature calculations for some other reasons, rather than the lack of meteorological stations and observations.

We can’t possibly imagine what those “other reasons” might have been. Dog ate them? They accidentally flew into the shredder, carried by a freak gust of wind?

The data of stations located in areas not listed in the Hadley Climate Research Unit Temperature UK (HadCRUT) survey often does not show any substantial warming in the late 20th century and the early 21st century.

Is that so? That sounds an awful lot like cherry-picking to us but, then again, we’re not impeccably credentialed scientists like Chuckles Johnson who, by the way, would like you to know that Amazon has such a deal on barely used bicycle seats and, of course, Kindles.

The HadCRUT database includes specific stations providing incomplete data and highlighting the global-warming process, rather than stations facilitating uninterrupted observations.

On the whole, climatologists use the incomplete findings of meteorological stations far more often than those providing complete observations.

No, no, no, NOOOOOOOO! The Science Is SETTLED!!!™

IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations.

But, but, but why on Earth would they do that?

Somewhere, Chuckles is sucking on his Phony Tail while desperately putting up six dozen “excellent videos” of compromised “scientists” “brilliantly debunking” every single suggestion that they’ve ever done anything wrong. Scout’s honor. Really. Would we lie to you?

The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass. The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.

Maybe this time we can get somebody who aren’t interested in only one outcome to do the calculations?

Just a thought.

You know, the way science used to be practiced before the advent of NuScience.

Thatisall.

    And we are supposed to be surprised like WHY? These jerks have been lying for so long it is ridiculous. :em38: :em41:

    Anyway, I was first when I started typing!

    “PBS Newshour” had a lengthy segment last night in which their intrepid **snort** ITN reporter traveled to the Amazon to find out just what impact the transfer paymentslooting from a new program, called Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD), would have on the people who would receive them in exchange for allowing the rain forest to revert to its natural state. The segment’s underlying premise was, of course, the same old, same old Western urban liberal bullshit about how we’re doomed, DOOMED! if we don’t “save” the Amazon as a “carbon sink.” Here’s where it got fascinating — it seems our reporter had little luck finding “shiny, happy people, holding hands” when he interviewed actual people living there:

    • Two “illegal loggers” are shown standing next to, and taking a break from, the hard work they do, and one of the guys says, “We don’t want to get paid to do nothing. We want to live here, working at what we do. Why is it that rich countries are so interested in preserving the Amazon when they don’t even preserve their own forest? Tell me that!”

    • A young man working in a traditional placer mine — strip mining the soil for gold using water pressure and pans — said he, too, had no intention of stopping what he was doing because “an illegal miner destroys less land than a rancher. In one year, a rancher can destroy millions and millions of hectares, but we stay in the same place for years.”

    • A woman Indian chief — whose tribe won’t see a dime, of course, because they’ve been doing the “right thing” all along — scoffed at the transfer paymentslooting scheme as “a recipe for conflict and corruption” that “rewards the white people” (i.e., non-Indians).

    IOW, fellow denialist fascists, indigenous, rural Brazilians with little or no edumacation had no difficulty whatsoever seeing this scheme for the stinking load of crap that it is. Maybe it’s time we packed all the spoiled urban liberal nutcases who believe in this nonsense off to places like the Amazon for a little schooling. These three people sounded fully capable of setting “sophisticated” Western knuckleheads straight in no time at all.

    At least it hasn’t been cold, windy and snowy in Copenhagen. Oh, wait, on second thought, I guess it has. The Gore Effect keeps on going.

    Wow, this place is empty during the weekday, isn’t it? What, are all the Rotties Eeeevil Capitalist Running Dogs or some such, going to work at jobs to make massive unsustainable profits by stealing from the little brown people and spending the proceeds in carbon-spewing consumeristic fashions?
    One can only hope.
    I’ll take the Anthropogenic Global Climate Change folks seriously when they volunteer to die first.
    Then I’ll let them die for their beliefs. It’s the least I can do. I’ve tried to think of ways I could do less, but I got nuthin’.

    Once their whining is gone, we can continue to produce abundant cheap energy and advance mankind.

    Abundant usable energy. Without it, there is no life. With more of it, life burgeons.

    I’m stuck at home conserving my energies to combat this lingering cold I have.
    The upheaval that will occur in the scientific and political arenas can only happen if vigilance to expose these Alchemists and Statists is unrelenting.

    Bwahahahahaha! I just knew the Russians would step in at just the right moment and squash all this nonsense. For all her flaws, Mother Russia still kicks ass.

    That she does, Natasha, that she does. :em01: And Russia doesn’t give a rats ass what Gore thinks. And nobody can do a damn thing about it, Russia is simply too formidable.

    Well, I haven’t been at work. Been at Stanford Hospital, all the wifes pre treatments complete, radiation, the works. Tomorrow she gets her bone marrow transplant. Gonna’ be a long day, but it is the finale. Then to watch for a year…hell, the rest of her life in my book. All provided for by capitalist drug companies, insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, nurses and the people making those magnificent machines. So maybe I have been working, taking care of The other Half.

    The faithful will dismiss this as a nefarious Russkie plot to turn Siberia into a farm belt and become a Polar shipping power.

    It’s the new religion for people who consider themselves “too smart” for religion but still crave the apocalyptic prophecies, piety, sanctimony, and righteous guilt (but without any of that unfashionable grace and salvation.)

    Of course, the Helio-centrists must again be demonized, persecuted, and accused of heresy, just as they were in Galileo’s time.

    Actually, Siberia appears to have been warmer even as early as 18th-19th century, when people migrated there or were exiled there and stayed. It appears to have cooled significantly throughout the late part of the 20th century. You know, it amazes me how leftards, when it’s convenient to them, are ready to kiss Russia’s ass and adopt Russian-style socialism, but once it becomes inconvenient, Russia is the enemy #1. I wish the losers would make up their…. Oh wait, they don’t even have minds. Ok, disregard…
    I, personally, would like to see Russia as our ally against assorted climate nazis and jihadis (which is about the same thing, really).

    They got too close to the Data Emulsifier®.
