    This says it all! Here is an excerpt from Hansens latest plea for help. This sort of verbiage only exists in the minds of the mentally challenged.i





    "The precision achieved by the most advanced generation of radiation budget satellites is indicated by the planetary energy imbalance measured by the ongoing CERES (Clouds and the EarthÂ’s Radiant Energy System) instrument (Loeb et al., 2009), which finds a measured 5-year-mean imbalance of 6.5 W/m2 (Loeb et al., 2009). Because this result is implausible, instrumentation calibration factors were introduced to reduce the imbalance to the imbalance suggested by climate models, 0.85 W/m2 (Loeb et al., 2009)."

    I don't pretend to understand the science of this, but that except above says that the real world results are being changed to match the results predicted by a model.

    I just don't understand if the instruments are any good, why they would collect the data then throw it out in favor of a conclusion that is not supported.

    That is the stuff of politics, not science.

    I was desiring to see if he could make that leap himself! Now we'll never know!

    He's saying they didn't get the result they wanted so they "adjusted" the instrumentation until they did get the result they wanted.

    Hansen and cronies should be arrested and charged with fraud for stuff like that. he just admitted he's doctoring the data to put a hoax over on the American public.

    For implausible, substitute "contrary to predetermined results"
    Now! Doesn't it make more sense.

    A computer model is not able to accurately predict weather or temperature in the future. We simple do not know enough to properly program the model.

    And temperature on the surface at temperature stations is adjusted also. No one claiming global warming is man made uses actual readings they "adjust" them all to fit what they want to believe.

    When the data fails to fit the theory, you adjust the data
