I'm not trying to insult your intelligence but aren't you the least bit concerned?
No. Not one little, itty, bitty bit.
We've broken the record for the hottest year for 3 years in a row from 2013-2016 and we've been breaking heat records since 1998!
Have we ... or has someone manipulated the data? Has someone changed the way the data is collected? You see, once 'they' have broken trust with you
(changed the formula) ... they can never earn that trust back again.
Let's go back to something your Krazy cohort mentioned in this thread. That thing about the greatest temperature uptick occurring in the atmosphere
above the oceans. Where does that come from? Well ... if you go all the way back to the source ... it comes right from the people who got caught
manipulating the data once already. And guess what, there's no way to fact check their work because they control every aspect of it.
I've said it on the boards before. There are methods of verifying temperatures over the oceans. They're expensive to conduct ... and so they're not.
We look at some display, from some reading, from some satellite ... and we're told to believe it. Somebody asks, "When was that satellite last
calibrated?" And somebody else says, "Well ... that's classified." or "You don't have a need to know."
So the boys in the background already know this ... see? And because they know the satellite has NEVER been re-calibrated ... they're compelled to
adjust the data to what it should be. And how do they manage to do that with accuracy? Well, they get the narrative that's going public in advance
... so they can make proper adjustments and keep everyone on the same sheet of music.
And the whole thing with the UN supporting anything NASA said. NASA is part of the US Government. The US Government fronts almost 25% of the UN's
required budget. If I was the UN, I don't think I'd excite my single largest bill-payer, would you?
And getting back to the ocean temperature thingy. I've been to sea. It can be pretty damn hot on a boat. But the ocean will kill you quick if you
fall in (it's pretty damn cold for a human). Get off that 'boat' and onto a raft ... you'll find out it was the sun baking the snot outta that boat
that made it so damned hot ... cause you're gonna be cold in that raft.
Now, let's get you on an airplane on the hottest day of the year. Let's get you out on the wing. Let's fly you up to 30,000 feet. How cold are you?
Here's a little picture.
As you can see, the temperature is so friggin' cold you would die within minutes (if not seconds) if you weren't insulated from that extreme. Far far
faster than if you fell off the boat ... but so fast in either instance that it's relative.
Now that air up there ... it's anything other than standing still. And that air up there ... it's anything other than uniform in temperature or
density. And that air up there ... it's miles in depth. And you think NASA's got a satellite up there that can peer down through all of those
variables and tell you what the temperature is, what the average temperature is, and what the consistent temperature is? Yeah ... that same satellite
that ain't ever been calibrated ... that's the one.
I've got a bridge right over there I can let you have at a good price.
I take everything I hear from the Climate Science Department with a grain of salt. **Note To Self: See if Trump University had a Climate Science
Department -chuckle** They, by the way, were the exclusive
group that was polled for their opinions on climate change (not all Scientists).
They're 'one' of the laughingstocks of the Scientific community. You do know what the definition of Science is (note my use of uppercase Ss in this
paragraph), don't you (I hope I'm not insulting YOUR intelligence) (now would be a good time to read my tagline).
Anyway, I think I've given all of the readership sufficient reason to doubt. Hint: Real Science (see that capital S again?) leaves no room for doubt
and is not preceded by the word 'Settled' ... ever. I wish you all a skeptically wonderful day.
