This is a post I made a few years ago.  It seems it needs to be addressed again with all the AGW decisions that have been made by some pretty dubious scientists and some very political non-scientists.

I have a few questions for the AGW alarmists that are really puzzling. 

The IPCC has based all their science on a computer model comparing average global temperatures since the turn of the last century (100 years +). I am sure the temperatures they have collected in the last 40 or 50 years have been pretty accurate as scientific instruments distributed worldwide are probably pretty well calibrated and collected automatically.  But the data is based on what the average temperature was in the 1890's.

So let's look at the world at the turn of the century.

The western US was just being settled.  

Where was the data collected and by what method?

How many collection sites were there and how many more are there today?

Were there collection sites in the Antarctic and Arctic areas, the jungles, the deserts, the remote areas of the world as there are today?

What type of thermometer was used?  Was it accurate to the tenth of a degree?

How often was it collected?  Daily? Weekly?  Who collected it?

Where was it recorded and where is that data?  What was the agency that oversaw the collection?

Are some of these temperatures based on tree rings?  Are those accurate to the tenth of a degree?

The IPCC settled on a temperature from that time and who knows how accurate or scientific it is.  They say the temperature today is 0.5 degrees higher than it was back then.  And that is runaway warming over 100 years.  They can't explain why the warming has stalled for almost two decades.  

What if they had picked a starting point just 1 degree higher than they did with very dubious starting data?  What if?  

Then we would be in a 100 year cooling period, and this whole premise would be moot.

Well Said - Trying to create a legacy for a failed certain someone? This may be why over 500 environmental scientists have written EPA and asked them to please stop politicizing climate change!

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
