Top Ten Warmest Years or Hoax?
Posted by hanson807 on January 20, 2009
2008 was ranked as one of the top 10 hottest years on record. Unfortunately, the temperature data has slowly but steadily removed weather stations that didn’t agree with the preconcieved idea that it is getting warmer. The person who is in charge of this data is Jim Hansen. So what are the odds there is no professional malficiance? John Goetz has been keeping records of the temperatures around the world and the country and has found that the historical temperature data is being modified. This data falls under the department run by Jim Hansen. Jim Hansen has a reason to modify this data. He wants it to fit his idea of what should be happening. Even though it is ancedotal evidence, do you as the reader consider 2008 a warmer year than average? I sure didn’t. Of course, I can go to some fairly reliable sources like the weatherunderground and actually look at historical data. It doesn’t appear to be the warmest by a long stretch. The data is beginning to be questioned by people within the field.
I think it is time we really start questioning this government employee. Jim Hansen works for us, or at least he derives his pay from our tax money. These results and the trends in the loss of weather stations and changed data point to someone working diligantly to make the data fit a preconcieved idea. In other words, he is falsifying data and doing it on the public dole. He wants global warming because it fits his preconcieved ideas. Not only that, it makes him important and right. That puts him in a position to guide public policy. Is this what we want?
