This Heartlander Magazine report is worth a look just for its tongue-in-cheek graphic called ‘The Scientific Method – Then And Now‘.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), chairman of the Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness, convened a hearing on December 8 titled “Data or Dogma? Promoting Open Inquiry in the Debate over the Magnitude of Human Impact on Earth’s Climate.”

A number of noted scientists gave presentations at the hearing and I thought I’d summarize a few of their remarks [see link below].

Yahoo news quotes Cruz saying, “climate change [is] a ‘pseudo-scientific theory’ by liberals seeking to impose government control over the economy and ‘every aspect of our lives’,” and the scientists who testified reinforced his point.

The hearing provided several important take-away messages. Two of the most critical ones:

* Politics is corrupting climate science
* Earth is benefiting from, not being harmed by, rising carbon dioxide levels.

  1. For those who can’t afford the hours of evidence, I’ve spliced together 9minutes of the key sections regarding the controversy between satellites and ground station evidence:

    In short, the satellites are the best indication of any current trend because they are more global, just a better way to measure and their data corroborates well with the independent meteorological balloon data.

    And surface data sucks with all the warming since 1940 being attributable to the massive adjustments.

    One defender of the ‘faith’ was invoking orbital degradation of satellites to try and rubbish their data.
    He sounded a bit desperate IMO.

    Surely people like Dr Roy Spencer know the score there and wouldn’t be easily fooled by technology errors?
    There’s a lot of ‘satellite experience’ out there.

    Mike: Excellent, thanks for the video. Good post OB.

    I think the tide will be turning once Paris COP21 is seen for what it is – a well lip-sticked pig.

    Already happening TB.

    ‘COP21 agreement is unclear and unrealistic: scientists’

    No surprise really…
