Climate experts complain about research to Congress
The Heartlander is reporting that 300 climate experts are protesting climate data from the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that they claim inflates the amount of global warming which is actually occurring. The experts also take issue with the idea that carbon dioxide is involved with any small warming that might be occurring.
Highlander talks about the expert’s letter to U.S. House Science Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), saying:
“The letter said NOAA’s research failed to comply with Data Quality Act (DQA) guidelines established by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget requiring agencies to ‘ensure and maximize the quality, objectivity, utility, and integrity of information, including statistical information.’ DQA notes it is especially important for data to be accurate and of the best quality when it involves ‘highly influential scientific assessments’ used to inform the public and shape public policy.”
