Despite a general warming and greening of Arctic lands in North America, some areas in northern Russia and along the Bering Sea coast of Alaska are showing recent cooling trends and declines in vegetation productivity. "We don't know why," Bhatt said.

A paper in open review for Climate of the Past finds no significant difference between the atmospheric variables of sea-level pressure, surface temperature and wind speed between the winters of 1783-1784 [during the Little Ice Age] and 2009-2010 in Europe, and finds the 2009-2010 winter in France was colder than 1783-1784, in spite of a large volcanic eruption that occurred in 1783.
Articles: Socialist Science in the Climate Science Neighborhood
During my 35 years of practice in the atmospheric science profession, in government, consulting, and academia, the socialist techniques that have become apparent include blatant dishonesty stemming from arrogance -- a hallmark of socialism -- and its offshoot, a sense of supreme superiority.

Haughty socialism has no problem with twisting the truth or simply lying. Although for most people, "honesty is the best policy," in socialist ideology the ends justifies the means and so, even though verity can be useful, it's not absolutely necessary.
