The global-warming propaganda knows no bounds. NASA and NOAA have just announced that 2015 is “the hottest year on record,” confirming a similar statement by the UN IPCC last fall — a spurious claim that CNN and other elements of the pro-environmentalist establishment media are only too happy to amplify. In other words: Two more government agencies, funded entirely by government money, have found still more evidence that more government will be needed to avert the alleged manmade catastrophe of global warming. The fact that the most ardent proponents of anthropogenic (manmade) global warming are all affiliated with either the UN or with the U.S. government should arouse suspicions about scientific objectivity.
Putting the lie to such pronouncements, as The New American noted only two days ago, is the absurd yet insistent claim that reliable global temperature data stretch all the way back to the 1880s — an era when the high Arctic, Antarctica, Siberia, the Sahara, Sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia, and large stretches of Oceania had yet to be explored, let alone equipped with weather monitoring facilities. Virtually nothing was known of the high Arctic, for example, until well into the 20th century, when airplanes gave access to areas unreachable by boat. Yet we are expected to believe that the data pre-1979 is as reliable as that furnished by the satellites and sophisticated weather monitoring equipment of the past few decades.
