Global Warming’s A Hoax

As global warming is a hoax, as I speculate the Bush administration thinks, there’s certainly no need to both bother monitoring warming of the earth from space:

The Bush administration is drastically scaling back efforts to measure global warming from space, just as the president tries to convince the world the U.S. is ready to take the lead in reducing greenhouse gases.

A confidential report to the White House, obtained by The Associated Press, warns that U.S. scientists will soon lose much of their ability to monitor warming from space using a costly and problem-plagued satellite initiative begun more than a decade ago…

The American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Academy of Sciences have both cautioned that downsizing the satellite program will result in major gaps in the continuity and quality of the data gathered about the Earth from space.

NASA and NOAA agreed in April to restore sensors that will enable the satellites to map ozone. NOAA Administrator Conrad Lautenbacher said that would give scientists a better idea of the content and distribution of atmospheric gases.

But seven other separate climate sensors are still being eliminated or substantially downgraded by lower-quality equipment to save money, according to the report to the White House. Most of the satellites, which were scheduled to launch starting next year, have been delayed to between 2013 and 2026.

Along these lines, I’ve decided to drastically reduce the incidence of diabetes and breast cancer among my patients by discontinuing monitoring of blood sugars and ordering Mammograms.

    Ron, This made me laugh–even though it is so…shaking head…sad and ridiculous. But it was your comment at the end–I guess because I just had my mammogram.
