The progressive media production of stories of manmade global warming doom as gone into overdrive with the approach of a Paris conference attempting to arrive at an treaty compelling the citizens of the developed world to stop using oil, natural gas and coal and to pony up several trillion dollars to redistribute to the less developed countries. They hope to scare you into supporting this latest exercise in mass theft.
The Watts Up With That? blog has recently posted three essays which are the perfect antidote to the latest round of manmade global warming hysteria.
John Goetz’s essays reveal that 66% of the surface temperature data reported by the Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN) and 92% to 99% of the data reported by the U.S. Historical Climatological Network (USHCN) are nothing more than estimates, rather than the raw data from actual weather stations.
Mike Jonas’s essay notes that the reason the UN’s computer climate models were all wrong and projected temperatures far higher than the estimated data we are being fed by GHCN and USHCN is because they do not account for the vast majority of the actual climate.
In sum, a small group of computer modelers is offering manipulated and demonstrably inaccurate data upon which hundreds of climatologists and dozens of governments are relying to claim that man is somehow warming the atmosphere at a catastrophic rate.
On the Senate floor yesterday, Ted Cruz offered the best description of how our corrupt government works that I have ever heard a politician provide in public, nevertheless to the face of his own party leadership.
Do yourself a favor and watch the entire video below.
A man this fearless deserves our support.
In the late 1990s, Bill Clinton survived impeachment for his felony perjury and obstruction of justice in a large part because the Democrat news media had his back and faithfully repeated his talking points.
Today, Hillary Clinton is free falling in the polls because voters overwhelmingly view her as a liar. In something I never thought I would see in my lifetime, the Democrat media called a Democrat presidential front runner out on her policy lies.
If the Democrat establishment has turned on the Clintons, who are they supporting now?

Where was your Secretary of State when the 3 am call arrived?
In the good old days of Climategate, British climatologists would “hide the decline” in atmospheric temperatures by “adjusting” the data behind closed doors to support their manmade global warming claims. A decline in temperatures became a sharp increase.
Today, our government climatologists at NOAA commit their fraud in broad daylight by openly manipulating the data to erase the fact that temperatures have not significantly changed for the past 18 years and to now claim that there is uninterrupted warming since the bottom of the last cooling cycle in 1950.
How do they accomplish this feat?
Until this study, there was general agreement that temperatures had not changed significantly since 1997.
Imagine a graph of the temperatures since 1997 as a teeter totter at balance.
What NOAA did in its latest manipulation of the data was to increase the weight they gave certain sea buoy temperature readings, eliminated an entire category of ARGO sea buoys, and then further manipulated the land temperature readings more than they had in the past.
The result was that NOAA reduced the temperature results before and increased them after 1998 to make it look like the trend line was going up.
This is the statistical equivalent of putting a big guy on one end of the teeter totter to make the other end point upward.
How can the government get away with this?
When you have an unquestioning news media which credulously publishes government propaganda as fact, it’s easy as 1, 2, 3.
Having successfully hogtied their economy and unemployed millions of their citizens, socialist France came up with the brilliant idea of wasting taxpayer money to send their unemployed to fake businesses to pretend to work.
There is no better illustration of the end state of a progressive economy.
