Data, data, data. It’s all about the data.
When the Left attacks us on the right, the refrain usually consists of many various (and wrong) epithets. One of their favorites is that we on the right are “anti-science,” because our coalition contains some who are Creationists, and others who are opposed to the destruction of life even in the furtherance of science.
However, let’s be honest. It’s the Left who believes there are more than two genders, it’s the Left who believe that murdering children for the sake of their parents comfort is reasonable, it’s the same Left that argue that pre-born children are “just blobs of cells,” even as all of the biological evidence says otherwise. It’s the Left who believes that men can be women, and women can be men.
Reason.com had a short list of a few other anti-science leftist beliefs to remind us of:
And it’s largely liberal Democratic politicians pushing anti-vaping laws, despite public health agencies estimating e-cigarettes to be around 95% safer than conventional tobacco cigarettes and early evidence they help smokers quit. And vaping products don’t contain any tobacco or its resultant tar, yet the FDA still wants to treat them as tobacco products.
The big science policy issue of the day, though, seems to be global warming. Sixty-four percent of Democrats believe in man-made global warming, while only 22 percent of Republicans do. But when it comes to realistic solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Democrats still aren’t always science-minded.
Only 45 percent of Democrats support expanding the use of nuclear energy, as compared to 62 percent of Republicans, despite the fact that except for Chernobyl, not a single person, including nuclear workers, has ever died due to a commercial nuclear reactor accident.
This is, of course, not an exhaustive list, but you get the point, right? The left is as “anti-science” as the right and in some ways perhaps even moreso.
While their views on human sexuality may be the most glaring blind spot on the Left, their beliefs on climate change may be their most fervent religious belief. What is most interesting is that in the conversation on Climate Change we find that they have even less reason to hold to their beliefs because while on sexuality they have some on their side who claim to “know” that they are right (through experience), they have no evidence of their claims on Climate Change. That fact is once again being proven as the research on climate change advances.
A recent peer-reviewed report is blowing up the myth of Climate Change and showing that the data does not support the hysteria.
In this research report, the most important surface data adjustment issues are identified and past changes in the previously reported historical data are quantified. It was found that each new version of GAST has nearly always exhibited a steeper warming linear trend over its entire history. And, it was nearly always accomplished by systematically removing the previously existing cyclical temperature pattern. This was true for all three entities providing GAST data measurement, NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU.
As a result, this research sought to validate the current estimates of GAST using the best available relevant data. This included the best documented and understood data sets from the U.S. and elsewhere as well as global data from satellites that provide far more extensive global coverage and are not contaminated by bad siting and urbanization impacts. Satellite data integrity also benefits from having cross checks with Balloon data.
The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever –despite current claims of record setting warming.
Finally, since GAST data set validity is a necessary condition for EPA’s GHG/CO2 Endangerment Finding, it too is invalidated by these research findings. (Full Abstract Report)
MarketTicker.org cuts to the heart of the matter:
It is therefore quite-clear that the data has been intentionally tampered with.
Since this has formed the basis for plans to steal literal trillions of dollars and has already resulted in the forced extraction of hundreds of billions in aggregate for motorists and industry this quite-clearly constitutes the largest economic fraud ever perpetrated in the world.
I call for the indictment and prosecution of every person and organization involved, asset-stripping all of them to their literal underwear.
Folks, the data simply does NOT support the premise that the world is facing a Climate Change crisis. It just doesn’t and the people saying that it does are making a ton of money for preaching their alarmist religion.
