|A Channel 4 documentary claimed that climate change was a conspiratorial lie. But an analysis of the evidence it used shows the film was riddled with distortions and errors|
One graph they use to "debunk" reality is labeled as coming from NASA.
Curious people began to look and it turns out the graph didn't come from NASA, but from an industry-funded anti-site.
Even better, the graph from that site only goes up until 1980, but the TV show labeled the X-axis as extending to 2000 (rescaling the years apparently to make it appear the "no warming as recently as 1980" extend to 2000 - oops!).
NASA actually has at least one graph on their climate science [sub?]site bringing that data up-to-date which directly contradicts the graphs given in the documentary.
The show's producer, who happens to be an anti-environmental recent communist (no shit! the right is riding the back of a friggin' ultra-leftist), said "oh, our graphics designers re-did the X-axis, that was a mistake".
Yeah, that's what graphics designers do, uh-huh. I work with them all the time. None I know would do so without asking for approval.
As for the rest of the problems with this "documenfictionary", go read Real Climate.
Again I'm shaking my head wondering that some people here, well-schooled in the bullshit techniques of the ID crowd, would fall for such dreck.
Oh! Just remembered. Roy Spencer, whose analysis of satellite data once purported to show that the temperature of the troposphere was cooler than measured from the ground and that temperatures had actually cooled, not warmed, in the 1990s .... is an ID advocate. Wrote so in Tech Central Station a year or two ago! Re-gargles all the standard creationist/IDist canards without a single original thought.
(BTW his and Christy's analysis of the satellite data collapsed due to simple algebraic and one sign (!) error. Even God can't protect evangelical southern baptists like Christy and Spencer from mistaking "+" for "-" ... after correction the satellite measurements in question confirm the GCMs).
aw sh!t dhogaza.
Next you'll be saying the scientific method should be renamed to "Darwinism". And Darwinism (a well known leftist konspiracy) has a "reality" bias. Who knows where this will end up, people believing in reality? Only in Heaven.
