– NOAA caught with its pants down – Temperature fraud (Ice Age Now, Aug 22, 2015):
“I thought you might like the temperature fraud that had been uncovered by the Capital Weather Gang in Washington DC at Reagan by NOAA since 2014,” says reader Kingbum.
“Sensors been found to be giving at least a 1.7F warming bias….This time NOAA was caught with its pants down and by their response its obvious this is all politically driven.”
“When confronted with an obviously broken weather station that was reading way too hot, they replaced the faulty sensor — but refused to adjust the bad readings it had already taken,” says this exposé by Patrick Michaels.
“When dealing with “the pause” in global surface temperatures that is in its 19th year,” says Michaels, “the agency threw away satellite-sensed sea-surface temperatures, substituting questionable data that showed no pause.”

– University press release warns that falling solar activity may bring new ice age (Ice Age Now, July 19, 2015):
“There is no strong evidence, that global warming is caused by human activity. – Dr Helen Popova
This warning of a potential ice age comes from an international group of scientists including Dr Helen Popova of the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics and of the Faculty of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Professor Simon Shepherd of Bradford University and Dr Sergei Zharkov of Hull University, and Professor V. Zharkova of Northumbria University.
Diminishing solar activity may bring new Ice Age by 2030
Lomonosov Moscow State University Press Release
The arrival of intense cold similar to the one that raged during the “Little Ice Age”, which froze the world during the 17th century and in the beginning of the 18th century, is expected in the years 2030—2040. These conclusions were presented by Professor V. Zharkova (Northumbria University) during the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno in Wales by the international group of scientists, which also includes Dr Helen Popova of the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics and of the Faculty of Physics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Professor Simon Shepherd of Bradford University and Dr Sergei Zharkov of Hull University.

– Snowfall in Hawaii – In mid-July (Ice Age Now, July 18, 2015):
An overnight storm dropped 1½ to 2 inches of snow on the summit of Hawaii’s tallest peak in July.
Cameras at the summit of 13,800-foot Mauna Kea showed some snow still on the ground midday Friday.
National Weather Service meteorologist Maureen Ballard says snow can fall on the summit any time of year, though there’s a greater chance in the winter.
Ballard says temperatures at the summit were about freezing overnight. Continue reading »

– Climategate: Obama’s boot boys strike back (Telegraph, Dec 15, 2011):
By James Delingpole
When I first read this morning that the police had paid a nocturnal visit to the blogger Tallbloke to confiscate his computers I thought at first it was a non-story. Jolly annoying and inconvenient for Tallbloke, obviously, but nothing too sinister. Tallbloke was one of the first people contacted when mystery whistleblower FOIA 2011 leaked the Climategate 2.0 files onto the internet; the ongoing investigation by Norfolk police into the identity of the Climategate leaker has been singularly unsuccessful; so it seemed sadly inevitable that in their flailing desperation to be seen to be doing something, anything, to get their man, the Norfolk plod would resort to tactics like this. (H/T Sir Gawain Towler)
(To give you an idea of the spirit in which Tallbloke is taking it, here’s what he says at Climateaudit: “The detective- insprctor and his colleagues were polite, well mannered and did not over-react when I declined to give them my wordpress password. I politely explained that they had a warrant to search my house, not my head.”)
But no: it seems the true instigator of this vexatious abuse of power by arbitrary authority may be none other than President Obama.
Here’s Chris Horner with the lowdown in the Washington Examiner:
I have seen apparent proof that the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), Criminal Division, is working with United Kingdom police to pursue the leaker of the 2009 and 2011 “Climategate” emails. Continue reading »
– 60% Reduction in Solar Activity Means a 5C Drop by 2030 – Video (Ice Age Now, July 15, 2015):
This video is definitely worth watching.
“When the temperature drops like this, it has taken down dynasties, kingdoms, feifdoms.” – David DuByne
“A majority of our wheat-growing productivity, corn and soy beans, is going to be affected in these areas,” says DuByne.
DuByne includes a chart showing temperature patterns during a Little Ice Age so you can see which areas are likely to get cooler.

This Members-Only content from Suspicious0bservers.org has been shared on YouTube because it describes and frames what is probably the single most significant heliophysics discovery of the year. The subject of a coming grand minimum, despite some of the experts’ concurrence and the data suggesting only one near-term outcome for the sun, has drawn controversy from many in the heliophysics community; I have fallen on the side of a coming grand minimum and am not shy about my praise for this mathematical model. I don’t like most models; they tend not to match observational data – this one does. Continue reading »
