Climate science denier Lord Lawson’s appointment as chairman to the Vote Leave...
Here is the latest bizarre twist in our investigative series on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR).
To recap, NASA was given over $100 million in taxpayers money to build a spacecraft that would look at the energy budget of our planet from a unique perspective. Even though it is fully completed over five years ago, it is still sitting in a box at the Goddard Space Centre.
According to leading scientists in a recent paper in the esteemed journal Science, this spacecraft would dispel much existing uncertainty about the pace of climate change.
No offense to NASA, but as far as maintaining the official US surface temperature records, it's the job of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
And according to the official NOAA records, the 10 hottest years begin with 1998, followed by 2006.But according to recent histrionics from the climate change denial industry, 1998 is no longer the hottest year in the US, it's 1934.
Okay, you can't check today's “carbon-weather” but you can see what it was in the past. Check out this site created by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that provides a global perspective of carbon uptake and release.
The image above is the North American carbon weather on January 1, 2005.
The watchdog Government Accountability Project has released a 138-page report (pdf.) on the White House-orchestrated plot to suppress climate-change research that deviated from Bush administration policy.
Here's a realplayer webcast of the House Science Committee hearing where the report was release today.
Despite beginning the year with a chilling La Niña, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) advises that 2006 was the fifth-warmest year in recorded history and the hottest year in the U.S.
The 2006 average annual temperature for the continental U.S. was the warmest on record, scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said. The agency began keeping such records in 1895.
