From the Austral Regions - Sons of Botany Bay Roar!

Bureau of Meteorology accused of Criminally Adjusted Global Warming

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists.

     At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century.
    At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century.
    Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia's hottest year on record. This prompted Australia's alarmist-in-chief Tim Flannery - an English literature graduate who later went on to earn his scientific credentials with a PhD in palaeontology, digging up ancient kangaroo bones - to observe that global warming in Australia was "like climate change on steroids."
     But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies.
     Though the Bureau of Meteorology has insisted its data adjustments are "robust", it has been unable to come up with a credible explanation as to why it translated real-world data showing a cooling trend into homogenized data showing a warming trend.
She wrote:
“Repetition is a propaganda technique. The deletion of information from records, and the use of exaggeration and half-truths, are the weapons for cloaking the lies. The Bureau of Meteorology uses all these techniques, while wilfully ignoring evidence that contradicts its own propaganda.’’
     This is a global problem. Earlier this year, Breitbart reported that similarly dishonest adjustments had been made to temperature records by NASA and NOAA.   Similarly implicated are the UK temperature records of the Met Office Hadley Centre and at Phil "Climategate" Jones's disgraced Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia.
     One of the many disingenuous arguments used by climate alarmists against sceptics is mockingly to accuse them of being conspiracy theorists. "How could global warming possibly not be a problem when all the world's temperature data sets from Australia to the US to the UK clearly show that it is? Are you seriously suggesting that so many different scientists and so many distinguished institutions from across the globe would collude in such a massive lie?" their argument runs.
Our answer:   Yes!  We bloody well are!
El Gringo Viejo takes over from the estimable Mr.  Delingpole, who both lights the candle and curses the darkness, quite effectively.

  We must be assertive when we say that we are more than seriously suggesting that the Climate Change Hustlers are liars....socialist internationalist elitists....and arrogant, sophomoric snips.   In the 1800s there were a couple of volcanoes that could teach them a lesson, if only they were academic enough to learn anything.  But alas, they are not to be instructed in truth, they were born to instruct the unwashed with lies.  To wit:

      While justifiably rated as one of the most destructive volcanic eruptions of modern times, Krakatoa was not the largest eruption in the recent history of Indonesia. That “honour” belongs to the eruption of Mount Tambora on April 10, 1815.

Anak Krakatoa
Mount Tambora and the
 Year Without Summer
     Tambora is the only eruption in modern history to rate a VEI of 7. Global temperatures were an average of five degrees cooler because of this eruption; even in the United States, 1816 was known as the “year without a summer.” Crops failed worldwide, and in Europe and the United States an unexpected outcome was the invention of the bicycle as horses became too expensive to feed. 


Krakatoa Eruption
May 20, 1883

Tephra and hot volcanic gases overcame many of the victims in western Java and Sumatra, but thousands more were killed by the devastating tsunami. The wall of water, nearly 120 feet tall, was created by the volcanoes’ collapse into the sea. It completely overwhelmed small nearby islands. Inhabitants of the coastal towns on Java and Sumatra fled toward higher ground, fighting their neighbors for toeholds on the cliffs.  The steamship Berouw was carried nearly a mile inland on Sumatra; all 28 crewmembers were killed. Another ship, the Loudon, had been anchored nearby. The ship's captain Lindemann succeeded in turning its bow to face the wave and the ship was able to ride over the crest. Looking back, the crew and passengers saw that nothing was left of the pretty town where they had been anchored.
     The explosions hurled an estimated 11 cubic miles (45 cubic km) of debris into the atmosphere darkening skies up to 275 miles (442 km) from the volcano. In the immediate vicinity, the dawn did not return for three days. Barographs around the globe documented that the shock waves in the atmosphere circled the planet at least seven times. Within 13 days, a layer of sulfur dioxide and other gases began to filter the amount of sunlight able to reach Earth. The atmospheric effects made for spectacular sunsets all over Europe and the United States. Average global temperatures were up to 1.2 degrees cooler for the next five years.
      And so it goes.  These are but a couple of the more famous ones because their names are romantic and exotic sounding.   But there have been many, many more.   Any of several of these politically incorrect geological phenomena poured more ambiential contaminant into Earth's atmosphere than all the efforts of mankind since the appearance of Adam and Eve.   But wait....there's more!   Any of these volcanoes poured more contaminant in one day, during the early episode discharges, than mankind has poured into the atmosphere.
     And yes this even includes the fog and carbon-fire smogs, mixed with open, unregulated sewerage, and mainly unkempt streets of London from Shakespeare's time until the 1950s.
     This is a movement of marxist elitists who call truth that which advances their objective of nationalising all human activity so as to be controllable by an more well-endowed ruling group, better prepared to manage humanity.  One volcano might possibly come along at one of AlGore's speeches and then be followed by a snowstorm of epic proportions so as to give witness to their arrogant lunacy.   We must remember that AlGore bought a love-nest on the California coast, well within the zone that he, himself, had assured the little children and the Polar Bears would be underwater due to the melting Polar ice caps.
