"All government agencies lie part of the time, but NASA is the only one I've ever encountered that does so routinely."
– George A. Keyworth, Science Advisor to President Reagan and Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, in testimony before Congress, March 14, 1985
If you’ve read Dark Mission, it should come as no surprise to you that NASA lies. However, there is still a sizable portion of the populace that clings to the idea that NASA is somehow exempt from even the notion that it would withhold the truth about anything. As I stated in my essay in Secret and Suppressed II, pointing out NASA’s mendacities makes you about as popular with the press as crosses are with vampires.
Still, there are plenty of examples from the past, and now, yet another example from the present. Monday, NASA announced through the Goddard Institute for Space Studies that last month was the hottest October on record. This flew in the face of the empirical evidence, which suggested that cold, rain and snow were actually a bit more common than usual for October.
Fortunately, a couple of climate watchdog blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit (who both helped debunk Al Gore’s infamous “hockey stick” climate fraud), sifted through the data and discovered that the reason for the incongruity was that NASA had taken temperature readings from Russia from September, and simply copied and pasted the same figures into the October sample. Once the “blunder” was exposed, NASA hurriedly revised its figures, only to suddenly discover a new “hotspot” in the Arctic which once again pushed the temps into the record range. The only problem? Arctic ice is currently growing so fast in the Arctic that it is now 30 percent ahead of last year.
The fact these temperature readings are coming from GISS, one of four bodies responsible for monitoring global temperatures and certainly the most influential and most pessimistic, should alarm us all. The UN uses figures from the GISS primarily to justify its attempts to regulate and enforce controls over the economies of developed nations, like the US. Using the myth that man made “global warming” is causing calamitous climate change as its justification, the UN is trying to force nations like the United States surrender national sovereignty and place draconian restrictions on major industries to “combat” what is obviously a non-existent problem. The GISS is run by Al Gore's chief scientific collaborator, Dr James Hansen, who has been a major global warming alarmist since the late 1980’s. He's also the nutbag that recently called for CEO's of oil companies to be put on trial for "high crimes against humanity and nature." Hansen, who despite giving more than 1,500 media interviews in the last 8 years, continues to insist that the Bush administration is “muzzling” him, must be held responsible for this fraud. It is patently obvious that Hansen has deliberately cooked the books, to use a bad metaphor, and given the policy influence his office has, he should be fired immediately. Since this is not the first time that Hansen’s (cough) methodology has been called into question, it’s time for him to go. He is obviously not a scientist with any sense of integrity, but rather a political activist who has misused his position of authority to further a personal agenda.
It has by now been conclusively shown that human industrial activity has no influence whatsoever on global temperatures, and that in fact global temps are dictated almost one to one purely by the waxing and waning energy output of the sun. The flowing graph succinctly illustrates this:
Furthermore, global temperatures have been dropping in the last few years, while the concentration of Co2, the most commonly cited “greenhouse gas,” has been increasing. This has also lead to a measureable increase in plant growth, which is a good thing.
With a new administration coming into Washington that is certain to try and impose the economically ruinous Kyoto protocol on us, Bush could leave a lasting legacy by firing Hansen, disbanding the GISS and declaring it to be an unethical and hopelessly politicized agency that serves no useful purpose.
So once again we see that with NASA, the Lie is Different at Every Level, and the lies go on.
