If You Put Junk Science In, You’ll Get Junk Science Out

By Chris Martz – Re-Blogged From WUWT

 

There are plenty of climate scientists in the world that I highly respect, many of whom I don’t share the same views with on climate change. However, these scientists are respectful towards others, they’re pretty honest with their data, and still have scientific integrity.

There are a select few scientists out there, however, whom I have lost all respect for - Dr. Michael Mann being one of them.

Slowest Start to Atlantic Hurricane Season Since 2004

By Anthony Watts – Re-Blogged From WUWT

Weather Station (Lack Of) Maintenance

By Anthony Watts – Re-Blogged From WUWT

In Spain, Paco Eslava García has been following my lead on the poor quality of weather stations that produce record-high temperatures.

I also pointed out that high temperature records in the Los Angeles area could be a product of poor siting. Such as this station on the roof of the Santa Ana fire station:

Why Houston Flooding Isn’t a Sign of Climate Change

By Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D. – Re-Blogged From http://www.WattsUpWithThat.com

In the context of climate change, is what we are seeing in Houston a new level of disaster which is becoming more common? Water levels were 16 feet higher in the flood of 1935. The flood disaster unfolding in Houston is certainly very unusual. But so are other natural weather disasters, which have always occurred and always will occur.

(By the way, making naturally-occurring severe weather seem unnatural is a favorite tactic of Al Gore, whose new movie & book An Inconvenient Sequel [ currently #21,168 in Kindle] is dismantled in my new e-book, An Inconvenient Deception [currently #399]).
