Nature Geoscience, a scientific journal, issued a retraction on February 21st about a claim made in the famous joke that was the 2007 IPCC report that sea levels would rise by 18cm-59cm by 2100.  As reported by the Guardian (notice once again it's a British newspaper, not a US paper).

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.

The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.

Back in November, servers at the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University in England, ground central for scientists intent on proving that catastrophic global warming is happening and is man-caused (as compared to going wherever the science leads), were hacked, and thousands of emails were made public. A number of things were revealed by this data, primary among them that *

  • The data does NOT show increased warming
  • The scientists did everything they could - including manipulating the data (like Penn State's Michael Mann's "hiding the decline") - to hide this fact

Here's another example of how foreign press will cover the disaster that is the Global Warming hype machine and how the movement continues to melt down because of outright lying and manufacturing of data, but the U.S. media will cover it up because it doesn't fit their agenda.

It’s not just the threat of Himalayan glaciers disappearing by 2035.

By the way, that reference is to a clam made in the famous IPCC report that the Himalyaan glaciers would melt by 2035. The UN eventually issued a retraction, which was, of course ignored by the US media.

With the typical liberal urges of more taxing and more spending running rampant in Oregon - as evidenced by the recent passing of measures 66 and 67 - here's something you would never see pushed in the pages of the Dead Fish Wrapper; lower taxes help increase jobs.

One story that has been gaining more and more traction in the media lately is how the Obama administration is inflating their number of jobs "created or saved."  In particular, the data on the recovery.gov site has shown things such as millions of dollars going to congressional districts that don't exist.  As reported by Jonathan Karl at ABC News (hardly a right-wing organization, for those FOX News whiners):

Here's a stimulus success story: In Arizona's 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the Web site set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There's one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts.

Steve | Health Care Reform, Ignored Stories, Molly K Hooper, The Hill

Here's yet another story on the staggering cost of the health care fiasco that was passed in the House by Nancy Pelosi et all last week; it would increase costs by $289 billion.

The House-approved healthcare overhaul would raise the costs of healthcare by $289 billion over the next 10 years, according to an analysis by the chief actuary at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

The CMS report is a blow to the White House and House Democrats who have vowed that healthcare reform would curb the growth of healthcare spending. CMS's analysis is not an apples-to-apples comparison to the cost estimate conducted by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) because CMS did not review tax provisions, which help offset the price tag of the Democrats' measure.

Steve | Abortion, Editorials, Health Care Reform, Stupak Ammendment

As anybody who hasn't been living under a rock for the past 40 years know, abortion is one of the most sacred cows of the liberal left and the Oregonian (but I repeat myself).  Any restrictions on abortions cause murderous screams of anger from the left, because they can't stand to have someone tell them they can't murder their unborn children.  There isn't much gray area there.  This screaming and anguish is continued in the editorial from Novermber 9th, and the title says it all: "An unacceptable cutback in access to abortion".

Health care reform should not be pursued as a mission so impossible that it justifies restricting women's access to abortion.

That, however, is exactly what the House did Saturday night in passing the most significant health care overhaul in 44 years. The legislation was historic, but at what price? It was amended at the last minute with antiabortion provisions so restrictive that they would undermine the civil rights of American women.

Steve | Gallup, Healthcare, Ignored Stories

Here is another story for the ever-growing Ignored Stories category.  A Gallup poll was just released that shows that most Americans believe that healthcare is not the federal government's responsibility.

In their ongoing quest (along with the rest of the MSM) to destroy any conservative who dares to question libaralism, the Fish Wrapper makes a front page link of an AP story that supposedly "fact checks" Sarah Palin's new book "Going Rogue" (you know, the book that was so popular, it was #1 on Amazon.com before it was even available).

Steve | Climate Change, Editorials, Editors, Global Warming

The Fish Wrapper editors have shown in the past that they like to follow lock-step with the global warming/climate change hysteria/religion, and they continue their path with the latest editorial perpetuating the global warming hype, "Walking Out on Global Warming".

The main thrust of the editorial is that as usual, the U.S. needs to be a leader in climate change legislation that would trash our economy while major polluters such as Inda and China continue growing their economies.  And, of course, if we don't, the world will come to an end because of climate catastrophes.

The whole world saw a jarring, embarrassing contrast in leadership this week: There was German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressing a joint session of the Congress and pleading for U.S. action to combat climate change "in the interest of our children and grandchildren."

And there were Republican senators shunning a key committee meeting on climate change, literally walking away from their responsibilities to address the greatest environmental challenge facing the world.
