Retiring NOAA Scientist Exposes Another Warming Scandal

Posted by Tina

Kudos to the retiring NOAA scientist, John Bates, who exposed another global warming fraud perpetrated in 2015 to influence the world’s leaders, including Barack Obama, at the UN Climate Conference held in Paris. The offending paper, known as the “Pausebuster,” was rushed into existence and outlandishly claimed the pause in warming since 1998 didn’t happen and that temperatures had been rising faster than they projected. John Bates asserts that the data was unverified because it “was never subjected to NOAA’s rigorous internal evaluation process.” He should know; he created the process. Even more damning is the fact that his superiors dismissed his objections in order to advance the false information. The Daily Mail has the complete story.

I have to wonder how many of these revelations it will take to blow the lid completely off the tightly packed climate crisis meme generated by scientists willing to compromise their principles. Surely the scientists aboard the consensus view have at least a modicum of pride left…or conscience. Mr. Bates found his limit. Let’s hope others will follow.

    Here’s another scandal to add to the long list. Turns out the Dept. of Ed. was cooking the books on the student loan repayment programs. Leaving taxpayers stuck with tens of billions of dollars to pay.

    Report: Obama Department Of Education Drastically Underestimated Student-Loan Debt

    “With the media’s focus on the Inauguration and the new president’s first week in office, a recent Wall Street Journal report has gone little noticed. According to the report, on January 13 (just one week before the outgoing administration up and went), the Obama Department of Education dropped a memorandum confessing that it had “overstated student loan repayment rates at most colleges and trade schools.”

    The “updated numbers” provided by the Department were analyzed by the Journal’s staff, who found that the new data “revealed that the Department previously had inflated the repayment rates for 99.8% of all colleges and trade schools in the country.”
    This number (99.8 percent) is about as close as you can get to being completely wrong in measuring the extent of a crisis that higher education reformers have been warning us about for some time. In short, for the last eight years, the American people have not been told the whole story about just how bad the student-loan default crisis really is.

    A note on translating federal bureaucratese is needed at this point: When the federal government says that one of its departments, in this case, the Department of Education, “expects these plans to have costs to the government,” this means it will have costs to the taxpayers. For how much are federal taxpayers going to be on the hook for student loans defaulted on and/or “forgiven”? Apparently, more and more each time the government “updates” its data. When the student-loan repayment rates were originally published in 2015, more than half of the students at 347 colleges and vocational schools were found to be in arrears in their payments. Then, in September of last year, the Department raised that number to 477. Now, the “update” shows the number grew to 1029 schools. “Worse, no college saw its repayment rate improve under the revision, and some schools saw their seven-year repayment rates fall by as much as 29 percent.”

    In short, things are getting worse on the student loan front—and have been for some time; something we would and should have known earlier, had it not been for the federal government’s “technical programming error.”

      I read somewhere that the actual default rate was 50%. That’s horrible.

    • Tina says:

      We should close the Education Department. The bureaucracy costs the American taxpayer $73 billion last year. What a waste! When the department was formed (Carter 1980) American students were in the number one slot academically with respect to other nations. We have now slipped to number 28, tied with Italy, in the world rankings.

      • Bryan H. says:

        The solution to that is definitely to stop teaching about evolution and climate change, and to give more funding to religious schools that teach neither. That will definitely make us more competitive, since no other country teaches those things.

    The Global Warming scam is about taxing us more and controlling our lives more.

    And now the scamming Republowclowns are trying to pressure Trump into a carbon tax.

    Just proves Wallace was right regarding these two corrupt political parties when he said that there’s not a dimes worth of difference.
