  1. Cheers to Jack Beavers for putting in nice perspective the very long-term ice age history. I’d love to see some data sources on your comments for research sake.

    thanks

  2. If either Trump or Cruz was President, and the NOAA refused to turn over the documents, the next morning there would be a locked door to their building and a notice that they were fired with no pay.
    We can dream-can’t we?

  3. According to the best scientific minds, the earth is 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years old. And since its beginning, the earth has experienced at least five major ice ages, i.e. the Huronian, Cryogenian, Andean-Saharan, Karoo Ice Age and the current Quaternary. In between ice ages, the earth appears to have been ice free – even in high latitudes.

    “Ice age” is a term that implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres. By this definition, we are still in the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago because the Greenland, Arctic, and Antarctic ice sheets still exist. Therefore, the earth is still warming up from the most recent ice age – and is expected to continue to warm until it is ice free.

    There has been no satisfactory theory presented to explain earth’s ice age history. The cause of an ice age is believed to be related to several simultaneously occurring ice-age-factors, i.e. astronomical cycles, atmospheric composition, plate tectonics, and/or ocean currents. Regardless, during the peak of the current ice age, the creation of 1.9 to 2.5 mile thick ice sheets caused a global sea level drop of about 390 ft. Therefore, while we may now be experiencing short-term volatility in our weather cycles, the expectation is that as in the past the earth will warm until it is once again ice free – and the sea level has returned to its ice free level. Thus, if our historical science is correct, we are experiencing “natural” global warming as the earth warms out of its current ice age.

    It is important we understand that the cycles from “maximum ice” to “ice free” and back are not linear transitions. In fact, they somewhat resemble the cycles of the stock market, e.g. short-term volatility within a long term trend. For example, there is evidence that the “dark ages” were actually a reversion to a mini-ice-age due to a temporary variation in one-or-more of the identified ice-age-factors, In addition, in June of 2011, scientists at the US National Solar Observatory (NSO) and US Air Force Research Laboratory announced that the Sun appears to be headed into a lengthy spell of low activity, which could mean that the earth – far from facing a global warming problem – is actually headed into another mini Ice age, e.g. short-term volatility within the upward trend to an ice free earth.

    So just what does this mean, i.e. what does an ice free earth mean to mankind? Will it be the lifeless sweatbox the global warming alarmists believe – or will it be a lush, Garden of Eden? In truth, we really do not know – but earth’s fossil history indicates that many forms of life survived the past ice ages in order to flourish during the ice free periods. And it is an absolute truth that we have no control over earth’s ice age cycles. So instead of exploiting the earth’s normal warming trend by claiming global warming is man-made, perhaps it’s time we acknowledged the situation for what it really is – something over which we have no control – other than to prepare for the future ice free earth.

  4. The Emails were all accidently sent to lois lerner, who did not delete them, but sent them to Hillary Clintons server in the bathroom closet….who did not delete them, but they did disappear.
    Clinton stated today they disappeared because of a video. They all then reported to president valerie Jarrett, who directed Obama to George Soro’s urgent phone call….
    Obama announced the local police department now needs to be taken over by the federal government because this searching for emails is racist, as only black emails matter.
    In an unrelated matter, several NOAA employees were seen sleepwalking and saying the same thing while they walked the streets in the middle of the night.
    “Hide the decline”, was heard repeatedly.

  5. Wow, so hard to get the facts. EVERYONE, both sides of the argument seem to be spinning. Pro global warming seem to suggest the study is over, global warming is real, lets move to phase 2.
    The other side tries to make sensational headlines – is it “Congress” or is it “GOP”? NOAA says look at the facts (data and resultant study) – seem reasonable – unless the facts are in question and you are looking for a conspiracy. (and if it was a conspiracy, why would you do it via e-mail?)

    Just one, I’d like to see a single data point, have everyone agree how and when it was adjusted and then have NOAA explain why the adjustment was necessary. I understand that over the course of 100+ years, very few weather stations haven’t been moved around at least once. If you move to the wall of a different building, the instantaneous temperature reading could be different (sunny side of one building to shady part of another). Then night time temperatures shouldn’t be affected…

    Instead its all about flashy news – no substance.

  6. Of course not, it is just a waste of time and effort. We need to vote in a government like Poland, they have a bunch of political parties, however at this last election they only have two parties in government, both conservative. It is time for a complete overhaul going all conservatives.

  7. NOAA and the rest of the Federal bureaucracy have become unaccountable to the people. They are merely part of the Democrat Party. The Feds have become the enemy within.

  8. Translation: “The final report is unsupportable on facts alone. So we had to to make some unscientific wild ass adjustments to support the AGW narrative.”
