While there is documented proof that climate change has occurred over the years, a whistleblower is claiming that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association is directly responsible for pushing the existence of man-made “global warming” by forging temperature data.
After retiring as a scientist at the National Climatic Data Center last year, John Bates emerged on the front of the “global warming” debate as a whistleblower to cool the heated battle on man-made climate change by calling attention to the NOAA.
Bates said he decided to speak out after he read an article from the Washington Post titled, “Scientists Are Frantically Copying U.S. Climate data, Fearing It Might Vanish Under Trump.” Bates saw this as a joke, having worked for the NCDC and reportedly seeing the fraud firsthand.
Bates accused Thomas Karl, the lead author of the 2015 NOAA “pause buster” report of trying to “discredit” the temperature pause through “flagrant manipulation of scientific integrity guidelines and scientific publication standards.”
He says there is a 18 years pause that is being covered up by a Thomas Karl, he works for NOAA and is manipulating data to push man made global warming.
Bates accused former colleagues of rushing their research to publication, in defiance of agency protocol. He specified that he did not believe that they manipulated the data upon which the research relied in any way.
"The issue here is not an issue of tampering with data, but rather really of timing of a release of a paper that had not properly disclosed everything it was," he said.
One must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.
That will change immediately if global emission rights are distributed. If this happens, on a per capital basis, then Africa will be the big winner, and huge amounts of money will flow there. This will have enormous implications for development policy. And it will raise the question if these countries can deal responsibly with so much money at all.
First of all, developed countries have basically expropriated the atmosphere of the world community. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.
