Who Exactly Are The Science-Deniers Again?

I think it’s a valid question, especially in light of this little gem from Breitbart.  

 

From the Breitbart post:

…NOAA has been cooking the books. Yet again – presumably for reasons more to do with ideology than meteorology – NOAA has adjusted past temperatures to look colder than they were and recent temperatures to look warmer than they were.

Say it ain’t so.  There’s more, too.

One excuse NOAA’s apologists make is that weather stations are subject to changing environmental conditions. For example, when the station sited at Syracuse in 1929 was located at what was originally just a sparse aerodrome. Since then, however, as Homewood notes, it has grown into a large international airport with two runways servicing two million passengers a year. Its weather station readings therefore will certainly have been corrupted by the Urban Heat Island effect: that is, its temperature readings will have been artificially elevated by the warmth from the surrounding development and aircraft engines.

So you’d think, wouldn’t you, that to compensate for this NOAA would adjust the recent temperatures downwards. Instead, for no obvious reasons, it has adjusted them upwards.

This is a scandal. NOAA’s climate gatekeepers are political activists not honest scientists and the U.S. taxpayer has no business funding their propaganda.

You need to read the whole post, and see the evidence presented for yourselves.  I’ll warn you, though, that it’s going to be hard for you to come away with any impression other than it seems that our government-funded “scientific” institutions are the ones who have a problem with good science.  I’m just sayin’.
