The Dog ate it.

Oh, really? They've lost the data? It seems so.
Imagine if there were no reliable records of global surface temperature. Raucous policy debates such as cap-and-trade would have no scientific basis, Al Gore would at this point be little more than a historical footnote, and President Obama would not be spending this U.N. session talking up a (likely unattainable) international climate deal in Copenhagen in December.
As it turns out, we don't have to imagine it.
Steel yourself for the new reality, because the data needed to verify the gloom-and-doom warming forecasts have disappeared.
How the hell did something like that happen?
Apparently, they were either lost or purged from some discarded computer. Only a very few people know what really happened, and they aren’t talking much. And what little they are saying makes no sense.
Well of course, that would explain the whole thing.

The problem with the Global Warming argument is that it's based on data. If you don't have data, then you don't have a scientific argument. Anyone telling you different is full of crap.

The other big problem with the global warming data -- they are trying to project centuries based on decades....

And their data is skewed due to locations of the instruments. The effect IS that they have NO data and so don't know what they are talking about. We might be going back into a little ice age.

It doesn't stop them from doing SOMETHING no matter how wrong it is.

Excuse me, I hear Chicken Little calling...
