If You Wait Long Enough Some One Else Will Do It

For years I have been noodling the idea of comparing George Orwell’s book 1984 with the current circumstances that we find our selves in dealing with the real truth about global warm, or if you prefer climate change. Today, I discovered that I can quit noodling about the idea as Art Horn, a much better writer than I am, has done the deed, in an article published in the Energy Tribune: We Live in Nineteen Eight Twelve.
You can read the rest of this excellent article HERE. This is my favorite paragraph
The Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is a division of NASA located on the campus of Columbia University in New York. In 1999 it produced a graph of United States temperature anomaly from 1880 to 1999. It clearly showed that the year 1934 was much warmer than the next warmest year, 1998. The anomaly showed that 1934 was 0.6 degrees Celsius or 1.1 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than 1998. By the time the graph of United States temperature anomaly had undergone several “adjustments” by the Goddard Institute the 2010 version showed that remarkably, 1934 had “cooled” 0.3 degrees Celsius or 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit and equally amazingly, 1999 had warmed 0.4 degrees Celsius or 0.7 degrees Fahrenheit! Now in the new reality 1998 was warmer than 1934. These “adjustments” to the temperatures were not done all at once. They were done in tiny steps over a period of 11 years. Does this sound familiar? “If all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed-if all records told the same tale-then the lie passed into history and became truth’’. Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past. By cooling the past gradually and warming the present the new truth will show that the earth is warming much faster than it actually is.
