96% of Data Used to Support Democrat Climate Bill Is Flawed: Study

In December 2008, politician Al Gore predicted the North Polar Ice Cap would be completely ice-free in five years.

Gore made the prediction in front of a German audience on December 13, 2008. The Gateway Pundit reported on this at the time.

This wasn’t the only time Al Gore made his ice-free prediction. Gore had been predicting this dire scenario since 2007.

The North Pole is still covered with ice 13 years later.

In 2021 Arctic sea ice melt was at its lowest level in 15 years. Antarctic sea ice was above average.

In January 2021, Democrat mouthpiece Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced that life on the planet is going to end in 12 years unless the US addresses the threat of global warming.

We have less than 11 years left according to AOC.

On Saturday the US Senate passed a $369 billion deal for the “climate emergency” agenda. The legislation is not even based on factual data.

And they passed this behemoth in a straight party line vote during a recession.

With Senator Krysten Sinema’s approval, the last Democrat holdout for the Manchin-Schumer deal they called “The Inflation Reduction Act”, has finally given in to the $369 billion climate blowout.

Half of the funds raised by this deal will come from Americans earning less than $400,000 according to the Joint Committee on Taxation.

Even worse, a new study at The Heartland Institute shows that 96% of climate data used to justify this climate push is flawed. Climate experts have consistently pushed back against climate alarmist narratives.

A new study, Corrupted Climate Stations: The Official U.S. Surface Temperature Record Remains Fatally Flawed, finds approximately 96 percent of U.S. temperature stations used to measure climate change fail to meet what the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) considers to be “acceptable” and uncorrupted placement by its own published standards.

The report, published by The Heartland Institute, was compiled via satellite and in-person survey visits to NOAA weather stations that contribute to the “official” land temperature data in the United States. The research shows that 96% of these stations are corrupted by localized effects of urbanization – producing heat-bias because of their close proximity to asphalt, machinery, and other heat-producing, heat-trapping, or heat-accentuating objects. Placing temperature stations in such locations violates NOAA’s own published standards (see section 3.1 at this link), and strongly undermines the legitimacy and the magnitude of the official consensus on long-term climate warming trends in the United States.

“With a 96 percent warm-bias in U.S. temperature measurements, it is impossible to use any statistical methods to derive an accurate climate trend for the U.S.” said Heartland Institute Senior Fellow Anthony Watts, the director of the study. “Data from the stations that have not been corrupted by faulty placement show a rate of warming in the United States reduced by almost half compared to all stations.”
