Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine and others on a U.S. House committee want voters to know about the story revealing the manipulation of global warming data.It headlines their website for the Committee on Science, Space and Technology. “Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data.”
As reported by The Mail newspaper in London, a high-level whistleblower presented evidence showing how the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity. It published a sensational but flawed report aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including President Obama and Great Britain’s David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris two years ago.
The report claimed the “pause” or slowdown in global warming since 1998, revealed by UN scientists in 2013 never existed.
The whistleblower was Dr. John Bates, a top NOAA scientists presented evidence showing the report was based on misleading and unverified data.
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the House committee responded.
“I thank Dr. John Bates for courageously stepping forward to tell the truth about NOAA’s senior officials playing fast and loose with the data in order to meet a politically predetermined conclusion,” said Smith. “Now that Dr. Bates has confirmed that there were heated disagreements within NOAA about the quality and transparency of the data before publication, who know why NOAA fought transparency and oversight at every turn.”
