NOAA Refuses to Hand Over Climate Change Documents to Congress

global warming

Last summer, scientists published a study that challenged the notion that global warming has been slowing down in recent years. Their analysis was based on temperature data that was provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Since that time, Congressman Lamar Smith has asked NOAA for the data and internal communications that were related to the study, but they have refused to hand them over.

On October 13th, Smith filed a subpoena for the documents. The Congressman has long been skeptical of climate change, and has accused NOAA of fabricating temperature data. Smith told The Examiner that “Congress cannot do its job when agencies openly defy Congress and refuse to turn over information…When an agency decides to alter the way it has analyzed historical temperature data for the past few decades, it’s crucial to understand on what basis those decisions were made. This action has broad national and policy implications.”

Despite the subpoena, NOAA still isn’t backing down on the grounds that there is a “long-standing practice in the scientific community to protect the confidentiality of deliberative scientific discussions” and Congressman Eddie Bernice Johnson has backed them up by calling Smith’s subpoena an “illegitimate harassment of our nation’s research scientists.”

    I am thinking we may need to go over there and pull those documents from their cold dead hands.

    • Rick E.

      I’m thinking that you’re right! This is ridiculous and a bunch of contrived bullshit, we need to know the truth.
      They’re trying to obscure the truth, and that should be obvious to congress AND Obomba.

      • Gene

        Except 97% of ALL climate scientist say climate change is real and caused by man. When was the last time we agreed on anything?

        This is not a worldwide conspiracy, you, YES YOU , have been fooled by corporations causing climate change. Wake up sheep! http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/

        You say Obama like there’s a difference between R & D. You’re a fool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeCpLcjxOq4

        • Hp B

          We know it’s real Gene, it’s called spring, summer, winter, fall. Same as it ever was, just like the snake in the grass politico bureaucRats are the same as they ever were.

          • Gene

            Yeah and the most powerful storm ever recorded on earth the other day was just a magic show? This by the way , IS BY FAR, the dumbest answer I’ve gotten. You sir are an ignorant FOOL, never post again.

          • Hp B

            Yeah, until tomorrow, next week, next year and then THAT will be the harbinger. Oooooooo, the world’s gonna end!
            I thought we grew up and left that nonsense to the children.

          • Hp B

            It was a dud, dud. It petered out real quick. Please save the Texas worst rain recorded in history (shiver shiver) because I lived there for thirty years and saw a lot worse rains than your baloney (haha) most powerful ever recorded on earth.
            You sound like a little girl.

          • Skye Bowen

            Haha when do your records start, and how old is the earth?

          • john haggle

            How can I trust ANYONE that says “magic show”, “dumbest”, & “FOOL”. These are emotional words that have no logic, reason, or evidence backing. One reason I am drawn to dispute human caused climate change is that so often the proponents eventually resort to name calling. If they strongly based their opinions and comments on reliable evidence, then why do they have to engage in name calling?

          • AnotherLover

            Maybe it was a show. The strongest-ever-recorded hurricane sure didn’t do much damage, did it? Good luck getting the real scoop from NOAA, whose scientists now function under a GAG ORDER. Nothing unusual about that, I suppose.

          • lzman49

            I read the winds never exceeded 80 miles per hour, the official story is more government propaganda to support BS climate change.

        • Rick E.

          Explain why NOAA is not handing over the documents, I want to hear a rational explanation that actually makes sense! People usually attempt to obscure data for a good reason!
          I’ll let your bird brain figure out why that is so.
          Also explain why your hero Al Gore was blathering on and on about moving away from the coasts because of rising sea levels, THEN he goes and buys an $8,875,000 mansion right on the coast of California!
          YOU are the sheep and a fool.

          • Gene

            I don’t care. What I do care about is what the scientist say and NOT FKING CONGRESS. They are the liars. You think somebody went around to most of the scientist in the world and paid them off? You think that? Really? Lol.

          • masterblaster

            The Scientists that are getting checks from their Government will do as they are told. That’s about 97% of all of them

          • john haggle

            We don’t believe you Gene, because you are engaging in name calling and emotionalism, instead of responding to logical accusations. You really might consider doing daily exercise and eating a healthy diet. Prayer, meditation, and reading of highly intelligent classics might be good….. unless you are just a troll.

          • Gene

            Touche, I’m a combat veteran with PTSD, I get emotional and it degrades my integrity. I’m fed up (PTSD) with ignorance.

          • Richard Kwasneski

            Uh, 90 something percent of “scientists” say they are Democrats. If they were really scientists wouldn’t they be independent?

          • Gene

            Politics have nothing to do with science, dumb, dumb.

          • Richard Kwasneski

            Really? First of all it would be “ignorant” not dumb. Dumb is someone incapable of learning. I look at your posts and well I am pretty sure that you have surpassed ignorant and have traveled well into the dumb zone. Your lack of understanding or willingness to listen instantly triggers some sort of name calling response, Who is dumb? Lets look at the history. We had cooling, didn’t work out. We had warming, didn’t work out, we had change, didn’t work out. We had a “pause” and apparently it has failed as well? If it is science and there is no agenda, turn over the research! Nope, these people feel they are above us and do not need to justify their work (which we pay for most of it)? Now, I will probably not respond to whatever name you are going to spew at me. I have a job and I have to pay for all of this bullshit and don’t have time to be a troll. Wonder what the temperature is in fantasyland?

          • masterblaster

            For starters the Justice dept would have to issue the subpoena. You Know the odds on that right?

        • SOIA

          Hello Gene
          The 97% consensus myth has been analysed and exposed as a lie ( or shall we call it severely bending the truth?)a while ago , as some simple internet search will show.
          That everyone who doesn’t support the A(CO2)GW is fooled and/or on the payroll of big corporations is the same ‘warpropaganda’ as the 97% myth.By the way ,accusing corporations of fooling the people on the CO2 and climate change issue is also a ‘conspiracy’ theory.
          Not only corporations produce CO2 but also YOU , YES YOU with your car , AC, and other energyslurping products like big TV’s ,refrigerators etc.or other products you use and ,by the way, buy from those same corporations.How about those chrismas-lights, or those billions of carbonated drinks consumed every year? If CO2 is such a problem why not ban them also?How about all those politicians and climate hotshots flying and driving all over the world with their private jets and limousines telling others to reduce their “carbon footprints” ?
          Funny you use NASA as a reference , because NASA and NOAA are the ones who keep ‘adjusting’ the data to their liking,some people( also scientists) call this fraud.
          Maybe it’s time for you to get out of bed and smell the coffee ?

          • Gene

            Link please. I’m not an idiot who’s going to take some dude’s word for it, like you. You think it’s a worldwide conspiracy? Lol. It’s the corporations who are lying, you fell for it. About that link……

          • PJ London

            Here you go, now apologise and move on.

            “Global warming alarmists and their allies in the liberal media have been caught doctoring the results of a widely cited paper asserting there is a 97-percent scientific consensus regarding human-caused global warming”

            http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamestaylor/2013/05/30/global-warming-alarmists-caught-doctoring-97-percent-consensus-claims/

            “The question Cook and his alarmist colleagues surveyed was simply whether humans have caused some global warming. The question is meaningless regarding the global warming debate because most skeptics as well as most alarmists believe humans have caused some global warming.”

          • SOIA

            First , unnecessary namecalling is ,besides being rude , a sign of the weakness of ones own arguments.

            Some links : – stevengoddard.wordpress ,a few years of posts. If you don’t understand or think something is wrong ,you can contact the guy who runs the site.
            – Don Easterbrook , congressional hearing and other.
            Or do some re-seach yourself ,
            (like most of us did) within a few seconds you will have thousands of links to sites , vids,docs,articles , filtering out the serious ones still gives you hundreds at least.
            About ‘conspiracy’ , Two or more people coming together to plan some illigal act , like for instance the guys at NASA and NOAA ‘adjusting’ the data to their liking.(who pays them and others?)Ex-politicians and others who tell or repeat lies and stand to make millions with a “carbon-credit”scheme. Also see the Climategate email scandals. So yes ,you could speak of a conspiracy.
            (besides things like ‘peerpressure’,stopping of funding and maybe destroying ones reputation ,not being published etc)
            Also a lot of honest scientists who are given the ‘adjusted’ data will come up with ‘adjusted’ answers.
            Like all the computermodels.

            The proposition that people (scientists) who don’t believe and/or criticize the A(CO2)GW theory are on the payroll of the big corporations is also a conspiracy theory , can you give some hard facts about serious scientists who are on their payroll?
            Where can I sign up to get paid as well ?
            Keep on LOLing.

          • john haggle

            I’m considering the concept that “Gene” might be a hired internet troll designed to distract we readers from the substance of the article?

          • SOIA

            Gene…? About that link…..
            Gene…? ? ?

        • Joel W

          100% of people know climate change is real. It used to be called weather. Its just that the intelligent ones KNOW it has exactly ZERO to to with carbon dioxide aka plant food.

        • john haggle

          “Except that 97% of ALL climate scientists, that have agreed to say climate change is real and caused by man, have said that climate change is real and caused by man”, according to climate change caused by man proponents.

        • AnotherLover

          Yaaaaaaaaaaawn…
          97% of climate scientists were created by taxpayer-funded grants to push the phony scheme. We’re talking save-the-world grad school youngsters stepping up to the climate-fund collection plate. In real-world scientific research, money talks, and science walks.

        • lzman49

          Only scientists that agree with climate change get grants.

          • Gene

            You know this how?

          • SOIA

            Gene , good to see you’re back.
            Now , how about that link……
            You know , all those serious scientists who are on the payroll of the big corporations and who have fooled me and many others.
            If you please ,between all the LOLing,
            can give us a link….thanks.

          • Richard Kwasneski

            And you know what how?

        • Mike Carrick

          Gene, they were warning about ‘global warming’ when I was a kid back in the mid SEVENTIES!! That’s almost a half fukcing DECADE and guess what? NOTHING, nada, not a single degree difference in averages so I’m calling complete and utter BULL$HIT on your claim! It’s ALL a scam to prevent 3rd world countries from industrializing, keeping the ‘1st world’ countries technologically on top AND one giant fukcing MONEY scam from Wall St. and it’s ilk!! They were telling us kids we would see oranges growing in Canada and longer summers up here when the truth is, our winters were WORSE, then warmer, then even worse AGAIN over the decades!! The system is FAR too complex for scientists to even come CLOSE to guessing outcomes and there are FAR greater effects LIKE THE SUN other than self important ‘mankind’!!

          • Richard Kwasneski

            Nope, that was global cooling, we have since had “warming”, “change”, “paused”, & whatever bullshit they try to disguise this last study as.

      • masterblaster

        They are acting on orders from the president. Remember when bush fired the director at NOAA? I do the director refused at that time to generate more political approved forecasts specially when it related to Hurricanes and identifying Chemtrails in forecasts. How many days have you seend clear sky forcats and we have white out white skys from chemtrails. Under Bush the step up in spraying and harp was initiated. Obama is just carrying the water bucket for the NWO just as Bush. So on election day remember you still only have a choice between a hemorrhoid or the ahole period and it wont change as long as people sit back in thier easy chairs never look up and question anything.

        Massive protests are the only way for change

  • Pete752

    NOAA is under a GAG order. They ain’t going to release jack shit as far as the gov ‘official story’ has been spun. Think ‘Climate Change’ hoax.

  • SovereignPatriot88

    If they won’t hand over the data, then congress has no reason to follow their phony climate change suggestions. Not that they should anyway. If they want people to believe in the climate change fairy, than prove it. Otherwise they should STFU.

  • Jonny rRingworm

    This just reaffirms, (at least in my mind) that they don’t ant s to know the truth about global warming. They have even gone as far as trying to outlaw different views. None of this adds up, if it were real there wouldn’t be an issue with handing over anthing

  • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

    Looks like someone doesn’t want to let the results of their “settled science” see the light of day.

  • Hp B

    Maybe they should send the cops to fetch them and when the bureaucRats resist, tase, beat and/or shoot them dead like they do to the average person who “resists”

  • Herman Nelson

    Fixable. Defund NOAA for the next fiscal year. Won’t comply? No paycheck!

  • Mike

    Of course they don’t want to hand over the documents, they have been falsifying and modifying data for the climate scammers.

  • Frank Energy

    Folks I have the real data right here…..I downloaded the data early last year before they fiddled with the data…..to remove the “pause”.

    you can also download my spreadsheet, see the construct of the charts. please download it so real data can be preserved.

  • ccambridge

    What is this alphabet agency hiding? Climate change is an excuse to defund everyone with out of control taxes which will not help the planet just the greedy elitists. They are more of a threat to our culture than any agency fabrication. Congress needs to defund them immediately.

  • SOIA

    They were asked nicely months before (as the first paragraph of the article states) and they wouldn’t comply , hence the subpoena.
    They had months to hand over the data , not two weeks. The email request is for making sure no fraud has been committed. So who’s whining here?

  • SonsofAnarchy5768

    Way to let people know you have been lying the whole damn time!

  • MW Hohimer

    They can’t hand over the “real” data because it would likely contradict their “global warming” scam. Give them time. I’m sure they are this minute cooking up some “phoney” data, to turn over, that will support their claims.

  • Geoengineering

    “Global warming”, or whatever you wish to call it, IS caused by man: it’s called GEOENGINEERING. Please go to http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org for the truth. There are many sites on this subject now. There’s nothing hypothetical about it; it’s been going on for about 60 years. Our current situation is the result. NOAA and the National Weather Service ARE under gag orders. You can see the documentation at the above web site.
