He worked for a Global Warming company and found out they were cooking the books on their statistics to show Global Warming is real. So a fellow scientist killed him!

More evidence to support global warming...
:cool:
Global warming 'confirmed' by independent study
20 October 2011 - Weather stations are giving a true picture of global warming, the group found
The Earth's surface really is getting warmer, a new analysis by a US scientific group set up in the wake of the "Climategate" affair has concluded. The Berkeley Earth Project has used new methods and some new data, but finds the same warming trend seen by groups such as the UK Met Office and Nasa. The project received funds from sources that back organisations lobbying against action on climate change. "Climategate", in 2009, involved claims global warming had been exaggerated. Emails of University of East Anglia (UEA) climate scientists were hacked, posted online and used by critics to allege manipulation of climate change data.

Fresh start

The Berkeley group says it has also found evidence that changing sea temperatures in the north Atlantic may be a major reason why the Earth's average temperature varies globally from year to year. The project was established by University of California physics professor Richard Muller, who was concerned by claims that established teams of climate researchers had not been entirely open with their data. He gathered a team of 10 scientists, mostly physicists, including such luminaries as Saul Perlmutter, winner of this year's Nobel Physics Prize for research showing the Universe's expansion is accelerating.

Funding came from a number of sources, including charitable foundations maintained by the Koch brothers, the billionaire US industrialists, who have also donated large sums to organisations lobbying against acceptance of man-made global warming. "I was deeply concerned that the group [at UEA] had concealed discordant data," Prof Muller told BBC News. "Science is best done when the problems with the analysis are candidly shared." The group's work also examined claims from "sceptical" bloggers that temperature data from weather stations did not show a true global warming trend.

The claim was that many stations have registered warming because they are located in or near cities, and those cities have been growing - the urban heat island effect. The Berkeley group found about 40,000 weather stations around the world whose output has been recorded and stored in digital form. It developed a new way of analysing the data to plot the global temperature trend over land since 1800. What came out was a graph remarkably similar to those produced by the world's three most important and established groups, whose work had been decried as unreliable and shoddy in climate skeptic circles.

More evidence of global warming in increase of carbon emissions and gases...
:eusa_eh:
Record spike in global warming gases seen
Sun, Nov 06, 2011 - ‘VERY BAD NEWS’: Carbon emissions jumped by an unheard of 512 million tonnes, causing scientists to initially believe that there had been a mistake in compiling data
Harmful carbon emissions from burning fossil fuels made their biggest ever annual jump last year, according to the US Department of Energy’s latest world data released this week. China led the way with a spike of 212 million tonnes of carbon last year over 2009, compared with 59 million tonnes more from the US and 48 million tonnes more from India in the same period. “It’s big,” said Tom Boden, director of the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center Environmental Sciences Division at the department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. “Our data go back to 1751, even before the Industrial Revolution. Never before have we seen a 500 million tonne carbon increase in a single year,” he said. The 512 million tonne boost amounted to an almost 6 percent rise between 2009 and last year, going from 8.6 billion tonnes to 9.1 billion tonnes.

Large jumps in carbon emissions from burning coal and gas were visible in China, the US and India, the world’s top three polluters, according to the figures that were posted online this week by the Oak Ridge Lab. Significant spikes were also seen in Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Russia, Poland and Kazakhstan. Some countries, like Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Slovakia, Spain, New Zealand and Pakistan, actually showed slight declines from 2009 to last year, but those nations were uncommon. Much of Europe showed a moderate uptick. The pollution measurements could indicate economic recovery from the global recession of 2007-2008, Boden said. “At least from an energy consumption standpoint, companies were back to manufacturing levels that rivaled pre-2008 levels and people were traveling again, so emissions from the transportation sector rivaled those of pre-2008,” he said.

However, the data also raised concerns about the health of the environment. “This is very bad news,” said John Abraham, associate professor at the University of St Thomas School of Engineering in Minnesota. “These results show that it will be harder to make the tough cuts to emissions if we are to head off a climate crisis.” The data are derived from UN statistics gathered from every country in the world about fossil fuel energy stockpiles, imports, exports and production, as well as energy data compiled by oil giant BP. “If you know how much of a fuel is consumed and you know the oxidation rate and you know the carbon content of the fuel, you can derive the emission estimate, so it is a pretty straightforward algorithm as far as the calculation,” Boden said.

The US team has been calculating the data in the same way over the past two decades, so the hike last year was initially viewed with disbelief by Boden and some of his colleagues, he said. “We were a bit shocked. Our first reaction was: ‘Gee, there must be some problems in the underlying energy data.’ Then, when we actually started to explore other data streams, like the population data, like GDP data, and when we started to look at the actual atmospheric data, all of it paints a consistent picture and we believe it,” he said.

Um dude... Dude? Um yeah.... um.... well ya se.... everyone else already read the least sentence of the op.
You know. That part where it says this was all just the storyline of an episode of the tv show "Law & Order"? Yeah that part.

Jus sayin...

World is growing warmer, U.N. says
Nov. 30, 2011 - Weather office says planet could see irreversible changes in future
World temperatures keep rising and are heading for a threshold that could lead to irreversible changes for the Earth, the U.N. weather office said Tuesday. This year is tied for the 10th-hottest year since records began in 1850, the office said in its annual assessment of average global temperatures. The Arctic sea ice has also shrunk to record-low volumes this year, it said. The 13 hottest years on the books all have occurred in the past 15 years.

"The science is solid and proves unequivocally that the world is warming," said R.D.J. Lengoasa, deputy director of the World Meteorological Organization. Human activity is a significant contributor, he said. "Climate change is real, and we are already observing its manifestations in weather and climate patterns around the world," he said on the sidelines of the U.N. climate conference under way in South Africa.

The WMO's preliminary report, based on the first 10 months of the year, was released in Geneva and at the U.N. climate talks in South Africa. It provided a bleak backdrop to negotiators who are seeking ways to limit pollution blamed for global warming. This year has been one of extreme weather, the weather service said. Drought in East Africa has left tens of thousands dead, and there have been deadly floods in Asia and 14 weather catastrophes in the United States with damage topping $1 billion each.

Climate negotiators have set a goal of keeping temperatures from rising more than 3.6-degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial levels. They already are 1.4 degrees above the 1750 average. Small islands want that target reset at 2.3 degrees, saying their very existence is threatened by rising sea levels. Michel Jarraud, the WMO's secretary-general, said the 2.3-degree target already is out of reach. "Forget about it. It's too late," he told the Associated Press in Geneva, adding that 3.6 degrees is now a very challenging target. "Technically, if action is to be taken quickly, 2 degrees is reachable."
