Overnight Open Thread (21 Nov 2015)

A new taxpayer bailout to cover up Obamacare's failure? Oh I'm sure Speaker Ryan and all his talk about having the power of the purse will fold like a cheap suit as is normal for the GOP these days.


Running Shoes

Glad to see Saucony shoes rated high but I had no idea that Skechers had a running shoe. Expensive running shoes are no better, often worse, than cheaper ones.

Hollywood & Suspension Bridges

Suspension bridges of disbelief.

Drunkest Cities

The drunkest city in each state. Damn. Corpus Christi is the leader in Texas?

Artificial Global Warming

"Massively altered": German professor examines NASA GISS temperature datasets.

Ewert uncovered 10 different methods NASA used to alter the data. The 6 most often used methods were:

• Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.
• Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.
• Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.
• Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.
• Shortening the early decades of the datasets.
• With the long-term datasets, even the first century was shortened.

The methods were employed for stations such as Darwin, Australia and Palma de Mallorca, for example, where cooling trends were suddenly transformed into warming.

Ewert then discovered that NASA having altered the datasets once in March 2012 was not enough. Alterations were made again in August 2012, and yet again in December 2012.
