Why we can't we trust the global warming figures

This is a map showing the location of surface temperature probes. As you look at the map you will see that the darker the dot the greater the error factor.

And this is a picture of the type of location many have been for years. Not hard to see why the results would be misleading. Driveways, steel poles and air conditioner exhausts produce and retain heat. That's why people go to places with grass and shade. Notice how the temperature chart has a steady rise. My, my. I do wonder why.

And this is a picture of one that will be influenced less by the local environment, although the grayish gravel, steel poles, etc., do retain heat. Notice how the temperature graph shows much higher temperatures a hundred years ago than what we have today. Notice the slight rise.

And this is a pie chart showing the quality ratings of the probes.

Note that 61% have an error rate of greater than 2 degrees C. That is 3.6 degrees F.

8% have an error rate of greater than 5 degrees C. That's 9 degrees F.

Only 10% have an error rate of less than 1 degree C. That's 1.8 degree F.

And these are the measurements that the global warming hoaxers want us to believe justifies destroying our economy?

These are "settled science?"

I don't think so.

GOD Is Busy

A United States Marine was taking some college courses between assignments. He had completed 20 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the courses had a professor who was an avowed atheist, and a member of the ACLU.

One day the professor shocked the class when he came in. He looked to the ceiling and flatly stated, GOD if you are real then I want you to knock me off this platform.. I'll give you exactly 15 min.' The lecture room fell silent. You could hear a pin drop. Ten minutes went by and the professor proclaimed, 'Here I am GOD, I'm still waiting.'

It got down to the last couple of minutes when the Marine got out of his chair, went up to the professor, and cold-cocked him; knocking him off the platform. The professor was out cold.

The Marine went back to his seat and sat there, silently.

The other students were shocked and stunned, and sat there looking on in silence. The professor eventually came to, noticeably shaken, looked at the Marine and asked, "What in the world is the matter with you? Why did you do that?" The Marine calmly replied, "GOD was too busy today protecting America's soldiers who are protecting your right to say stupid shit and act like an idiot. So He sent me."

Shutting Detroit Down

I heard this morning that sales last week were down 5% over a year ago. In the meantime Obamie brags that unemployment has dropped a whole .2% to 10% and gasoline has went up about 80 cents a gallon in a year based on weaker demand.

I think "Shuttin Detroit Down says it all.
