Roanoke Times, 12-9-09, Pg 11: UN: This decade is likely warmest on record.
-This from reliable sources that admit they falsified temperature data to hide the real facts!http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2009/12/climategate-its-not-man-made-co2.html
This article includes grossly misleading graphics and text from Copenhagen, republished by the Roanoke Times, as if it were factual truth:
World temperature graph is shown as if a one degree temperature increase occurred during last ten years when in fact the one degree occurred over the past ONE HUNDRED YEARS. (Clearly NOT a crisis!) It also doesn't show that there has been NO net warming during the past 10 years!
In fact, the ClimateGate scientists purposely falsified the "official" temperature data to hide the fact that some amount of cooling occured during the past 10 years!
Minimum area of summer sea ice graph totally ignores the increase in the Antarctic ice coverage and the scientific record of 250 years of deglaciation resulting from natural global warming throughout the northern hemisphere, starting in 1750, 200 years before any significant increase in CO2.http://www.roanokeslant.org/GlobalWarmingThoughts/GlacierHistory250Years/index.htm
Rise in sea levels graph of 1.3 inches in past ten years is not inconsistent with the sea level rise of 20 cm from 1880 to 2000 (7.8 inches in 120 years) and is clearly not a crisis. For perspective consider that sixteen thousand years ago the Atlantic was 400 feet below where it is today and the Outer Banks of NC were 50 miles east out at the continental shelf. (That’s an average of 3 inches rise every 10 years or three times what it’s been for the past 10 years!).
4. Throughout this article there’s a lot of lamenting about “how hot it’s become” (as if one degree in past 100 years and no warming in the last 10 years are a crisis) but not one statement of fact that man-made CO2 is causing our 250 years of natural global warming.
The Roanoke Times and their liberal press associates are so committed to the Gore-Hypothesis that man-made CO2 is causing catastrophic climate change that they are unable to be impartial, balanced and evenhanded in their regurgitation of the tripe and misinformation emanating from sources who have now been clearly exposed as unprofessional and unethical practitioners of propaganda designed to ensure they continue to get massive taxpayer grant funding to continue their activities.
Perhaps the Editors of the Roanoke Times like to be associated with these types of people?
-As self-proclaimed stewards of Freedom of Information perhaps the Editors of the Roanoke Times should launch a major effort to determine why all the global warming data, starting in 1750, and paid for by government taxpayer grants are not released into a public database available to everyone without modification by the “tricksters”.
