The massive climate change hoax has, once again, been outed as the obvious fraud that it is as a former Obama administration official claimed that data had been fudged to fit the narrative.
The Obama administration’s scam. The Daily Caller reported: “Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.”
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin explained.
The manipulation is a team effort, with press officers that work with scientists in agencies such as the National Oceanic Administration (NOAA) and NASA, who then put together misleading press releases about the climate data, Koonin noted.
Koonin gives an example. Koonin, who worked in the Obama administration between 2009 and 2011, went on to reference a National Climate Assessment from 2014 which claimed to show that hurricane activity increased since 1980 — an assessment that, according to Koonin, was misleading.
“What they forgot to tell you, and you don’t know until you read all the way into the fine print is that it actually decreased in the decades before that,” Koonin said.
Koonin’s claim is also backed up by U.N.-published reports in 2014.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported that there “is limited evidence of changes in extremes associated with other climate variables since the mid-20th century.” The panel went on to report that according to current data, there are “no significant observed trends in global tropical cyclone frequency over the past century.”
Others are working to expose the scam. The DC reported:
Koonin is not the only one claiming wrongdoing. House lawmakers with the Committee on Science, Space and Technology, for instance, recently jumpstarted an investigation into NOAA after a whistleblower said agency scientists rushed a landmark global warming study to influence policymakers.
Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith, the committee’s chairman, will “move forward as soon as possible” in asking NOAA to hand over documents included in a 2015 subpoena on potential climate data tampering.
Koonin explained why this is important. He discussed his frustration over how political science has become and expressed that scientists should seek to “tell it like it is. You’re a scientist and it is your responsibility to put the facts on the table.”
What NASA and NOAA have done is a problem because “public opinion is formed by the data that is formed from those organizations and appears in newspapers.”
