New Claims Made About Global Warming

Last week, claims were made regarding the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,

as they have been said to have rushed a landmark study claiming that the planet was warming

much faster than expected in order to influence international climate negotiations.

Dr. John Bates, a former principal scientist at the National Climate Center, told the Daily Mail

that the NOAA’s study was meant “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush

to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on

climate policy.”

It turns out that when NOAA compiled what is known as the ‘version 4’ dataset, it took reliable

readings from the buoys used to measure the sea temperatures but then ‘adjusted’ them

upwards – using readings from seawater intakes on ships that act as weather stations even

though reading from the ships have long been known to be too hot.

David Rose, the writer for Daily Mail, explained that “no one, to be clear, has ‘tampered’ with

the figures. But according to Bates, the way those figures were chosen exaggerated global

warming.”

This is very unwelcoming, considering that humans’ effects on the environment and global

warming have been very highly discussed and debated within the past couple of years, and

dozens of scientists study global and explain the importance of protecting the environment in

order to protect the Earth.

David Rose, also explained how his team’s “revelations were met with fury by green

propagandists. Some claimed the MoS had published ‘fake news’.”

It is interesting to use the words green propaganda to describe people who want to improve

the environment. Clearly global warming is happening, even if it is not happening as fast as one

group of scientists falsely claimed it was, why do we need to wait until the world has gone

completely up in flames to try and improve it? Why not start now when scientists have the

technology to make the world more environmentally friendly.

I also find it interesting that they mention fake news, when in research, I found that the only

places articles about this have been published on, instead of Daily Mail’s Science section, Daily

Mail’s Right Minds section, which have posted articles such as “Men are the REAL oppressed

sex today”, Breitbart, and The Daily Caller.
