    Ironic, considering the millions of dollars going to Kansas schools each year through oil and natural gas production taxes.

    Did you know for the last 50 years 12.5% of the EARTH's land mass WAS NOT included in the temperature readings that
    Who would you believe then in this situation where there were only 4 recording stations for 12.5% of the EARTH's LAND MASS.. in other words

    We found [U.S. weather] stations located next to the exhaust fans of air conditioning units, surrounded by asphalt parking lots and roads, on blistering-hot rooftops, and near sidewalks and buildings that absorb and radiate heat.
    We found 68 stations located at wastewater treatment plants, where the process of waste digestion causes temperatures to be higher than in surrounding areas.
    Are surface temperature records reliable?

    In fact, we found that 89 percent of the stations – nearly 9 of every 10 – fail to meet the National Weather Service’s own siting requirements that stations must be 30 meters (about 100 feet) or more away from an artificial heating or radiating/reflecting heat source." (Watts 2009)

    "The number of [Siberian] stations increased from 8 in 1901 to 23 in 1951 and then decreased to 12 from 1989 to present only four stations, those at Irkutsk, Bratsk, Chita and Kirensk, cover the entire 20th century.
    IEA analysts say climatologists use the data of stations located in large populated centers that are influenced by the urban-warming effect more frequently than the correct data of remote stations…
    The scale of global warming was exaggerated due to temperature distortions for Russia accounting for 12.5% of the world’s land mass.
    The IEA said it was necessary to recalculate all global-temperature data in order to assess the scale of such exaggeration.

    Is that the kind of controversial information that IS NOT taught in global warming classes/

    Would you believe they are looking for oil in the Arctic circle.. Why?
    Oil is formed by decaying trees and we ALL know the Arctic circle has been very cold forever right so why are they looking for oil that came from decaying trees that could grow in arctic cold?
    HMMMM... another topic NOT discussed in global warming classes I bet!

    Yea... those ignorant Kansas people I bet they didn't know what Al Gore recently told us..
    Ellen: “Mm hmm.”
    Gore: “And of course, there are a lot of problems with what they’re proposing.
    It turns out plants need sunlight,”
    » Al Gore Talks About Chemtrails on Ellen Show Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

    And of course der leader of Global Warming... very smart man tells us..
    "but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, 'cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, .."

    Al Gore: Earth's Interior 'Extremely Hot, Several Million Degrees' | NewsBusters

    Again those poor ignorant farmers in Kansas that KNOW from birth that plants use sunlight, that tell you.. yea it gets real hot when harvesting sun flowers probably because
    of the several millions of degrees right under their FEET!
    The nickname “Sunflower State” calls to mind the wild flowers of the plains of Kansas

    Hell, it wasn't that long ago that all the best minds in the world thought the earth was flat and the center of the Galaxy.

    YOU MEAN based on this survey???
    Where of the 10,257 survey sent..
    ONLY 3,146 returned and of that 75 climate scientists said yes
    $98_percent_climate_scientists_graph.png

    That “98% all scientists” referred to a laughably puny number of 75 of those 77 who answered “yes”.
    About that overwhelming 97-98% number of scientists that say there is a climate consensus? | Watts Up With That?

    The earth is warming. The ice is melting. Seas will rise. There will be consequences...

    Global warming mystery: Why are some glaciers growing? Around the world, ice caps are melting due to climate change, scientists say.
    But a few icy masses in the Himalayas are, weirdly enough, getting bigger
    Global warming mystery: Why are some glaciers growing? - The Week

    Anyone bet that won't be a topic allowed in any global warming evangelistas classes???
