“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Dakota Voice Week in Review, Ending Nov. 28, 2009

j0442207These are the best of the best from Dakota Voice last week. These are the articles our readers found most interesting and compelling.

If you missed one or just want to read one again, this is your big chance!

Leaders Worldwide Call for Probe into Leaked Global Warming Emails – Senator James Inhofe is calling for a probe into the global warming fraud emails and documents which came to light last week. With a cap and trade global warming tax on the table here in the United States, and a UN climate change treaty which would hamstring the U.S. economy, we cannot afford to ignore this compelling evidence that the theory of anthropogenic global warming is a complete fraud.

Socialists in a Panic Over ClimateGate…to Pass UN Climate Treaty – Now that the cat is out of the bag over Climategate (while the American “mainstream” media is still desperately trying to keep it hush-hush), we hear President Obama is wearing some of the emperor’s new clothes and headed to Copenhagen with the intention of subordinating our free nation to a UN climate change treaty.

Climategate May Spur Lawsuit Against NASA for Denied Information Requests – There is a new development in the Climategate scandal. The Competitive Enterprise Institute has filed a notice of intent to sue NASA for refusing for three years to turn over information requested under the Freedom of Information Act.

Climategate: Falsified Research Scandal Rocks the UK – The scientific principle of “falsifiability” asserts that “the criterion of the scientific status of a theory is its falsifiability, or refutability, or testability.” Apparently the folks at the Climate Research Unit took a different slant on “falsifiability,” deciding that the only way to prove that their theory was true was simply to falsify the facts.

The Manhattan Declaration, an historic document – We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are: 1.the sanctity of human life 2.the dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife 3.the rights of conscience and religious liberty.

‘The Blind Side’ should trouble as well as inspire – “The Blind Side” is a beautiful new film based on a magnificent and heartwarming true story. But I hope that the many who see it do not simply walk out all aglow. It should also produce concern. This story about hopelessness transformed into achievement should be a typically American story–but is increasingly NOT the case.

Man in 23-Year Coma was Conscious All Along – Can you imagine being completely paralyzed but completely conscious for 23 years, all the while listening to people talk about you–perhaps even about ending your life–as if you weren’t there?

ClimateGate: Hide the Decline – Newsbusters draws our attention to a great video by Minnesotans for Global Warming on the exposure of some emails from a global warming “scientific” group which seem to reveal a pattern of data manipulation and monkey business.

150,000 Americans Sign Manhattan Declaration in First Week – More than 150,000 people have so far signed the Manhattan Declaration, just a week after the document was unveiled. And one of the document’s drafters, Chuck Colson, hopes the number will soon reach a million so that Christians would put America on notice that they will not compromise their faith, no matter what.

Creationists to Distribute 1 Million Copies of Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species’ – One million more copies of a special pro-Intelligent Design edition of On the Origin of Species will be given away to college students, marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.

Thank you, Faithful Readers, for making these the best of the best!

  1. An easy explanation of what ClimateGate means,

    ClimateGate emails and computer programs were taken from a main server at the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia. It is not known if this was a theft or the actions of a whistleblower, disgusted with what the lead scientists at CRU were doing.

    ClimateGate exposed the cabal of 20 – 30 scientists (not just at CRU) that peer reviewed each others papers, strong-armed scientific journals to only print their views, and then sat on the IPCC panels as authors judging which published studies go into the IPCC final reports. This is why they always keep shouting “peer reviewed studies, peer reviewed studies, peer reviewed studies”. They owned the peer review process.

    ClimateGate exposed that this small group has been adding positive corrections to the raw global temperature data, inflating the amount of published temperature rise over the last 50 years. Both CRU in the UK and NASA-GISS in the US add these biases. At CRU, the programmers did not even know what and why some corrections were added every month. Only since satellite monitoring for comparison have the amounts of biasing leveled off.

    ClimateGate exposed the leaders of this cabal instructing each other to delete emails, data files, and data analysis programs ahead of already filed Freedom Of Information Act requests for raw data and computer codes, clearly a crime.

    ClimateGate exposed the “trick” about the Hockey stick figure and other studies that performed proxy construction of past temperatures. After all, reconstruction of the last 1,000 years of climate is the first step in predicting the future with super computer programs as explained below:

    Everything about all 21 super computer programs used by the IPCC to determine future global warming rely on best-determined past sensitivities to solar and volcanic effects (climate forcings) from the proxy temperature record.

    1. The elimination of the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age (the handle of the hockey stick) was necessary so that past solar effects could be minimized, thereby allowing almost all of the warming in the last 75 years to be blamed on Greenhouse Gasses. Raw data (like tree-ring thickness, radioisotope of mud layers in a lake bottom, ice core analyses, etc.) are used as a proxy for reconstruction of the temperature record for 1000 AD to 1960 AD. To ensure desired results, statistical manipulation of the raw data and selecting only supporting data, cherry-picking, was suspected and later proved.

    2. The slope of long-term 10-year running average global temperature using thermometers from 1900 to present (the blade of the hockey stick) was maximized with the sloppy gridding code, Urban Heat Island effects, hiding the declines, and even fabricating data (documented in the leaked source code comments revealed with ClimateGate). This ensured that the Greenhouse Gas effect coefficient in all 21 of the super computers was maximized, and that maximizes the temperature result at year 2100 based on Greenhouse Gas increases. This thermometer data was used to replace the tree ring-divergence after 1960 and plot this over the climate history data of (1) above giving the false impression that the reconstructed 1000 AD to 1960 AD results are more accurate than they are.

    3. Because tuning of the super computer programs uses back casting, the computer outputs could always replicate the 20th Century (by design); therefore it was assumed that the models had almost everything in them. Because of (1) and (2) above, nearly all climate change predicted by the models was due to CO2 and positive feedbacks and hardly any of the climate change was for other reasons like solar, understood or not.

    4. Over the years, when better numbers for volcanic effects, black carbon, aerosols, land use, ocean and atmospheric multi-decadal cycles, etc. became available, it appears that CRU made revisions to refit the back cast, but could hardly understand what the code was doing due to previous correction factor fudging and outright fabricating, as documented in the released code as part of ClimateGate.

    5. After the IPCC averages the 21 super computer outputs of future projected warming (anywhere from 2-degrees to 7-degrees, not very precise), that output is used to predict all manner of catastrophes. (Fires, floods, droughts, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, insects, extinctions, diseases, civil wars, cats & dogs sleeping together, etc.)

    So shut-up or be called a denier,
    live the way we tell you to live,
    pay more for everything, and
    just send money for my research on the effects of global climate change on horseshoe crabs (which have been around for about 440 million years through all possible temperature ranges).

    I hope that this makes the ClimateGate controversy easier to understand.

  2. Anyone that would like to copy or repost my explaination of ClimateGate may do so.

    Have a nice day.

  3. global warming is a gigantic fraud.

    the actual hacked climate model source code explained by a software developer:

    this puts the emails to shame.

  4. I was gathering more information to refute some of Dr. Theo's comments in the “Creationists to Distribute 1 Million Copies of Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species’” thread (such as his open-ended “the plantaris muscle has now been shown to have subtle but definite functions” – such as what?) only to find the thread closed to further comments after Dr. Theo's “Gish Gallop” of disrespect. I'll try to be back for more, next time you have comments open on another thread involving creation apologetics and particularly my favorite, intelligent design. Thanks for the opportunity to explore and exchange comments.
