“The government proposes to enable in legislation the introduction of a mechanism that would place a restriction on the proportion of international units a participant can surrender to meet their ETS obligations,” Groser said. “Under current settings, there is a serious danger of NZ essentially exporting capital for no good reason resulting in a loss of economic welfare."
Given the high profile story today about the 49 NASA astronauts, engineers, and scientists who wrote a scathing letter to NASA director Charles Bolden, Jr. saying Jim Hansen and NASA GISS are exemplifying the “wrong stuff”, I thought I’d share this poster contributed by WUWT reader NickFromNYC:
FAMOUS NASA ENGINEERS BREAK RANKS: Hansen and Schmidt of NASA GISS under fire for climate stance: Engineers, scientists, astronauts ask NASA administration to look at empirical evidence rather than climate models. “When Chris Kraft, the man who presided over NASA’s finest hour, and the engineering miracle of saving Apollo 13 speaks, people listen.”
Axiom # 1 for climate data : All adjustments trend towards increased funding.
Un … freaking … believable. The same story of upwards global warming adjustments gets repeated over and over and over again – by many different government funded agencies.
One would expect a Gaussian distribution of error, but we see adjustments that are almost exclusively skewed in one direction – to match a political agenda.
