This is getting serious. NOAA defied efforts at Congressional oversight when President Obama was in charge. I doubt NOAA will enjoy the same immunity from oversight under President Trump.

 

You can’t prosecute a scientist for making a mistake. You can potentially prosecute a civil servant if they are grossly negligent, cut corners, and provide misleading information to the public.

 

It will be interesting to finally get to the bottom of this "scandal" that began back in 2015.  What do you think?  Surely you would not want policy makers to recommend policy based on inaccurate information would you?


As others have said.  There is NO scandal because the report it is based on is fictitous.  David Rose wrote a biased article and left out information that the data was independently confirmed by others using the same data and confirmed by data from other areas.  I have looked up Eric Worrall, but have been unable to see what qualifications he has.  Do you have any background on him that would show he actually knows what he is talking about?

There is no "scandal" about the total debunking of the imaginary "pause" in global warming.

 

There is only a gaggle of elected Republicans in Service To BigCarbon seeking to keep the financial support for their campaigns and lifestyle by PRETENDING there's a scandal.

 

Produce a SINGLE peer-review paper that demonstraits your absurd lie about any "pause" in Global Warming". If it's ACTUALLY a scandal in academia, there will be thousands of papers for you to choose from.

 

If you cannot produce any actual evidence, then stop pretending it exists.

I am not sure what the scales of justice have to do with this argument.  Does the preponderance of the evidence support the theory of MMCC? Yes. Do independent studies from different scientific institutions around the world come to the same results? Yes. Does the preponderance of scientists conclude that the theory of MMCC has not been disproved though all the studies done? Yes. 

 

Ok, the we should operate on the assumption that the theory of MMCC is accurate and adjust our behaviours accordingly. 

 

Next question?

Do you have any relevant comments on the content of the article?  

 

Or are you just wanting to argue with someone?

 

 


If you don't believe that discussing climate change for an article claiming data was faked, how do you want to talk about it?  By the fact that other research scientists say the data was independently verified?  By talking about how David Rose is a discredited author who omitted facts?  By talking about how unreliable wattsupwiththat is?  You set the rules and we'll talk about what you want to talk about.

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

In the wake of revelations by whistleblower Dr. John Bates, Congressman Lamar Smith, Chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, has renewed demands for access to documents and correspondence relating to the release of the flawed Karl “Pausebuster” paper.

 

 

US Congress launches a probe into climate data that duped world leaders over global warming

  • Republican Lamar Smith has announced an inquiry to acting chief of NOAA
  • He has demanded for all internal documents and communications between staff
  • It follows an investigation by the Mail on Sunday and information leaked by Dr John Bates

By David Rose for The Mail on Sunday
PUBLISHED: 13:14 +11:00, 19 February 2017 | UPDATED: 19:10 +11:00, 19 February 2017

Revelations by the Mail on Sunday about how world leaders were misled over global warming by the main source of climate data have triggered a probe by the US Congress.

 

Republican Lamar Smith, who chairs the influential House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology, announced the inquiry last week in a letter to Benjamin Friedman, acting chief of the organisation at the heart of the MoS disclosures, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

 

He renewed demands, first made in 2015, for all internal NOAA documents and communications between staff behind a controversial scientific paper, which made a huge impact on the Paris Agreement on climate change of that year, signed by figures including David Cameron and Barack Obama.

What you are denying is that the present change is proceeding at a rate never before seen in history and correlates with Humans producing excess CO2.


Please stop HIJACKING MY THREAD!!!

Start your on TOPIC on YOUR SUBJECT

 

 


How am I "hijacking your thread" that is about Human Induced Climate Change not happening because the Science Committee is investigating it?


You just illustrated it AGAIN!

 

Start your own thread and stop trying to take this thread about a legal probe OFF TOPIC.


So, what is the original point of your post?  A non-existant scandal?  If so, then everything we have posted is relevant.
