Congress has announced that it has ramped up its efforts to investigate a “key” climate change study after a whistleblower revealed evidence pointing to the use of fake science.
Some are referring to this scandal as “Climategate Two,” which is escalating quickly after Dr. John Bates, a former top scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, revealed that an ex-colleague “mishandled” a report regarding global warming right before an international climate conference in 2015.
House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith said during a Tuesday hearing that NOAA “has deceived the American people by falsifying data to justify a partisan agenda.” He will now push for all documents related to the climate study, materials he requested via subpoena in 2015 after Obama Administration officials refused to disclose them.
In a statement to The Daily Mail, Bates alleged that former NOAA director Tom Karl manipulated temperature readings and failed to archive data as well as ignoring proper protocol.
At the time, climate activists were in a panic because the premier scientific body in charge of climate science—the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)—admitted the rise in global temperatures had basically stalled from 1998 to 2012. This bombshell was included in the IPCC’s 2013 report, which would serve as the main primer leading up to the United Nations’ Climate Conference in Paris two years later.
It’s not surprising to think that there are people manipulating the numbers in an attempt to control the behavior of the people, but I hope that the Trump administration does everything they can to get to the bottom of this scandal.
Maybe we can finally debunk the idea that climate change is anything more than an Earthly cycle.
Comment: “Partisan science”, “partisan agenda”, “partisan judges” and “partisan rules”. “Partisan” as in DISHONEST! Everything from the left these days are just dishonest and fake.
