Quote of the day—Karl Denninger

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.

For starters.

Climate Alarmist Profiteers: Go To Prison
[Emphasis in the original.

Denninger is referring to a new report: On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data  &  The Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding. This report is, shall we say, “quite skeptical”, of global temperature data sets which claim to show rising global temperatures.—Joe]

  1. On and off I’ve looked at temperature data sets, trying to find one that is raw data. I haven’t found one yet. At one point I downloaded half a gigabyte or so that sounded like it would be. Then I read the description, and found it was not raw at all. Some plausible sounding tweaks like change occasional degree F to degree C mistakes, ok. But also “adjusted for seasonal variations”. Feh. If I want yearly averages I can do them perfectly well myself, f*** you very much. So I threw away those files.
    The fact that raw data is considered a deep secret by the “researchers” who say they have it is a very large red flag. Actual scientists don’t hide their data, only kooks and quacks do.

    • I remember from about 20 years ago, or so, when Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming first began to be a “thing” the TV Weatherman would announce the day’s highs and lows and the year when the record high or low for that day occurred. What I noticed was that these highs and lows were distributed literally all over the last 130 years when records were first kept.

      Those days of record highs and lows were distributed all over the record. There was no pattern, there was no cluster of temperatures towards the later years of the record as one would expect in a breakout or a general trending towards warming as the AGW hypothesis predicts. I have been skeptical ever since, and all this business about smoothing and massaging the data shows me that I’m not wrong to be skeptical.

      If there were some way to test this hypothesis, like Dr. Semmelweis and handwashing to prevent childbirth fever, that would be different, but no, I’m supposed to take this on faith and give all my money in the form of taxes and living expensively but uncomfortably on the chance of preventing something in 100 years. And these new AGW priests condemn the priests in the middle ages .

  2. There’s the fraud, and the theft, and then there’s the pressure, influence, bribes, and downright threats perpetrated against skeptics and whistleblowers. Within this issue we’re living the Soviet Union system, worldwide.

    Of course, once we start prosecuting them for their crimes, they’ll accuse us of being the Soviets, same as they’d accuse a libertarian of being a “Fascist” for “taking away” someone’s subsidies.

  3. This AGW scam started in the 1890’s, IIRC. They would reverse the direction between cold or hot about every 25 years.
    Start with prosecuting that clown that’s a former VP.

    • The former VP who became as rich as a TV evangelist preaching Catastrophic AGW to Leftists hungry for another religion.
