Satellitegate: Scientists Speak

GOES-8 Satellite that will be missing 14 sensors it should have to see if we have global warming or not

From John O’Sullivan, via Canada Free Press, we get further information on Satellitegate. Satellitegate refers to problems that have been discovered with old satellites, satellite data, and even problems with satellites that have yet to be launched. This evidently has caused lots of action about this at NASA, NOAA, GISS and elsewhere.

In his article titled “Top Scientists Speak out on the Satellitegate Scandal” you can read about how this being exposed has affected things and some opinions of some scientists. It appears that one satellite has been shuttered and datasets may be disappearing.

US Government admits global warming satellite sensors “degraded” – temperatures may be out by 10-15 degrees. Now five satellites in controversy. Top scientists speak out.

In an escalating row dubbed ‘Satellitegate’ further evidence proves NOAA knew of these faults for years. World’s top climate scientists and even prior governmental reports cite underfunding and misallocation as the trigger for spiraling satellite data calamities. Key flaws with five satellites undermines global data.

Most disturbing of all is that it took publication of my article last week to persuade the authorities to withdraw the errant NOAA-16 satellite from service. But as Dr. John Christy indicates, the real Satellitegate is not about one satellite. The scandal is endemic with comparable flaws across the entire network; the scandal is also that it took a tip off from a member of the public and the widespread broadcast of my article before one of the offending junk boxes, NOAA-16, got taken down.

  1. Thank God you told us about this!
    These last three weeks I though Russia had been covered by wildfires and one third of Pakistan had been flooded and landslides were still going on in China and Mongolia has so little water the people there had to migrate and the tundra has been thawing and glaciers had been melting and water was causing huge tensions between neighbors due to lack of water and that people were starving because of drought, floods and disease.
    Thank God we know that the instead of 145 degrees F in Russia it was only 135 degrees F. By God, why are those Russians crying about fires anyway. It happens right – get a knew house – bury the ashes from where you think your Dad was burned to death. Hey Carbon Dioxide has nothing to do with science and global warming so screw you and your floods and wildfires. Quit whining!

    • Vicki,
      Both of those calamitous events were forecast weeks and months ago by Weatheraction.com in the UK. Piers Corbyn who runs the service is the most successful long-range forecaster out there.
      He’s been doing this work with an 85% success rate for decades. Read my latest article and look him up. He’s the guy who knows. He’ll also tell you these events are entirely caused by a combination of solar and lunar activity. But of course, you’ll still prefer to blame human emissions of CO2, won’t you?

  2. Try prozac lady. Here’s your heat wave, caused by the jet stream not global warming.

    “The immediate cause of the problems is the behaviour of the jet stream, a band of high-level wind that travels east around the world and influences much of the weather below it. Part of the jet stream’s meandering is tied to regular shifts of air towards and away from the pole, called Rossby waves. The Rossby waves set up wiggles in the jet stream, wiggles which, left to themselves, would move westward. Since the jet stream is flowing eastward, though, the net effect of the Rossby waves varies. When the waves are short, they go with the jet’s flow and the resultant wiggling heads downstream to the east. When they are long they go against the flow, and the jet’s wiggling is transmitted upstream to the west. In between, there is a regime in which the waves move neither west nor east, and the weather stays put.”

    Here’s your fires….caused by man….not global warming. This is from the warmer New York Times who never miss a chance to call global warming, but even they tell the truth sometimes.

    When will you people learn not to believe liars?

    In John O’Sullivan’s latest load of crap he says:

    “Most disturbing of all is that it took publication of my article last week to persuade the authorities to withdraw the errant NOAA-16 satellite from service.”

    This is an utter lie. I dare you to find any proof for that claim. I found this:

    http://www.oso.noaa.gov/poesstatus/spacecraftStatusSummary.asp?spacecraft=16

    That spacecraft has not been taken offline at all. Not even a single subsystem has been taken offline.

    O’Sullivan is a LIAR. It is that simple.

    • Karmakaze, oh, how I wish! Being that I’m now in receipt of correspondence from NOAA’s Senior Legal Counsel you can be sure that my wildest dream is that NOAA are still carrying on business as usual selling sub-standard data!
      To all intents and purposes NOAA-16 is ‘dead’ and is most certainly ‘offline’ as a source of saleable climate data since my first article ‘killed’ it last week.
      As anyone who examines NOAA-16′s Subsystem Report will ascertain, there is no note anywhere in that documentation showing the satellite’s “sensors” were “degraded.”
      I take it you’re not legally trained so I’ll overlook your failures here. But NOAA has been selling its data to national and international researchers for 10 years and has never made it official that its data was “degraded.”
      Last week the statement of “sensor degradation” was the reason the entire data set was taken offline. By the evidence given to me by several international climate scientists its clear NOAA knew since 2005 its sensors were shot.
      If any private corporation had carried on with a multi-million dollar export business for five years or more fraudently passing off substandard goods as pristine, they’d be prosecuted for fraud. Please tell us what theory of law excuses NOAA from such charges.

  4. Alex the skeptic

    Vicki, I assure you that what John O’S has written about Piers Corbyn is true. Corbyn has been successfully prediciting weather for years now and h is accuracy is increasing, due to the fact that he is continuously refining his science based forecasting. Now I tell you, who would you believe, a scientist who gets his forcast wrong 100% of the time, like Mann, the IPCC and such like, or Corbyn, who gets it right?
    I do not know what level of scientific knowledge you possess. It would be opportune to note that most skeptics have at least a good scientific knowledge, while AGW followers do not knoe the difference between water and H2O.
