WRITTEN BY JOHN O’SULLIVAN | 20 JUNE 2011

As Earth enters deepest solar minimum in centuries NASA caught hiding sunspot data to prop up dying global warming cult. Inconvenient new ice age imminent.

A solar scientist insider who wishes to remain anonymous gives us the scoop that government officials are falsifying solar data to suit a political agenda. Below is his damning indictment of how deeply entrenched and desperate is the climate fraud. We see how observational data is being deliberately faked to hide the decline in sunspot activity; an event which independent scientists say could trigger a new ice age if it is prolonged.

The source, who fears losing his position if identified reveals, “The fact is for years we have been watching the magnetic fields wane both here on Earth and on the Sun.”

But NASA has conspired with advocates of the man-made global warming cult to ‘hide the decline’ which would make a mockery of their trumped claims mankind has created a new and warmer Anthropocene Climatic period.

Continued Rate of Cooling to Cause New Ice Age

Our nameless expert explains that since the 1990’s and into the 21st century magnetic fields have dropped by about 50 gauss per year. No one denies that in itself, this is not a remarkable drop if it were to be soon reversed. However, if such a trend continues for a decade or more then the fears of solar scientists that we are entering a new Ice Age will be realized with potentially devastating consequences for life of Earth.

The unidentified insider explains that one of the doomsayers guilty of propping up the false global warming story and who has now been forced into an embarrassing recant is NASA’s solar physicist, David Hathaway. Hathaway had claimed that Solar Cycle 24 would be strong but it wasn’t. But like many scientists wedded to the doomsaying cult it was not until recently that Hathaway felt forced to drop the bar and suggest that Solar Cycle 24 may be weak and not the 50 percent stronger he had suggested in 2006.

Now Hathaway drops the bar further admitting that Solar Cycle 25 will be even weaker. So what does prolonged weak sunspot activity mean? Well, look no further than the last long period of low sunspot activity when the Earth suffered the misery of the Maunder Minimum and Little Ice Age and devastating episodes of famine and bad harvests swept Europe. The climate became so cold that winter Frost Fairs were held on the thick ice that formed over the River Thames in London, England.

With no rises in global temperatures since 1998 and global cooling this century, the wider scientific community is discovering that a clique of self-serving climatologists have deliberately misinterpreted data from the Sun’s Great Conveyor Belt.

Weakest Solar Cycle in Centuries

Government funded researchers were first caught out by the double peaked nature of Solar Cycle 23. They did not consider the double minimum we are currently in that will take us into the weakest Solar Cycle in centuries putting us into potentially ice age territory.

The unnamed whistleblower says, “Within a few years time the magnetic field will be too weak to support any sunspots on the face of the Sun.”

Sunspots form only when the magnetic field is stronger than 1500 gauss.

Gravy train government researchers persisting in ignoring the facts are fast losing their credibility. These ‘scientists’ have turned a blind eye to important historical works on the Sun such as that by Pieter Zeeman who, back in the 19th century gave us “Zeeman splitting.”

Our whistleblower warns, “this brings us to how sunspots have been counted over the last few years and the counting of areas that would not have been seen much less counted in the past. It is entirely possible that these short-lived micro sunspots have shown up at every Solar Minimum and they were not seen so they were not counted. But that does not mean they were not there during periods such as the Maunder Minimum.”

Sadly, revisionists within the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have succeeded for two decades in re-writing the Earth’s temperature records. They have also succeeded in obscuring the proven key role the Sun plays, as witnessed by Judithgate whereby the 2007 IPCC Report relies on the work of ONE biased solar scientist, Judith Lean who positively ‘reviewed’ her own work.

Inconvenient Sunspots Shame NASA

The IPCC’s fraud with Judithgate is now matched by what is currently taking place behind closed doors. Our anonymous friend gives us the scoop on some of NASA’s latest shenanigans:

“The first example is the current fourth place record for total blank days in the period from July to September 2008, in which for 52 days just one micro sunspot appeared. Many in the science community were not at all to happy this was recorded as such because the area did not last 24 hours [a minimum requirement] and looked to many solar experts as nothing more than an aggravated pore.”

But still the doomsayer fraternity counted it.

“A second example is the current fifth place record for total blank days which is the 51-day day period from July to August 2009.”

Both of these blank periods have occurred in the current solar cycle and both were only days away from taking third place in all time spotless sun days since modern records began back in 1850. They were conveniently ‘stopped’ by counting areas that prior to the 21st century would have not been counted as true sunspots – a clear case of cherry-picking.

Now here is the kicker some of you amateur solar watchers may or may not know about. “In early July 2009 we had the best defined sunspot of this cycle to date (# 1024). But you probably won’t realize there was a second area that formed that month lasting less than one day and that was catalogued as # 15 on July 23rd 2009.”

My anonymous source tells me the reason it was not counted was because solar experts were expecting more sunspot activity and because the fact this area belonged to Solar Cycle 23.

“Now fast forward to August 31st 2009 and facing the fact that we were now only days from taking out the third place in all time blank periods. A micro sunspot appears and also lasts less than 24 hours. It got numbered right away but before September 1st was finished the spot was gone lasting less than 24 hours.”

Thus deliberate false accounting distorted the record books. Our faceless insider friend laments, “In the future solar scientists will look back on this period just as we now look back at the Persecution of Galileo.”

With the IPCC and NASA now discredited, the records need to be made public with all those responsible for doctoring the data brought to account; while independent and principled researchers should he heard without fear of recrimination.

For anyone interested in actual Independent Solar Research rather than the discredited hype about man-made global warming more information may be found here.

Fake Sea Level Rise Approved by NASA in Climate Fraud

By John O’Sullivan

NASA researchers admit adding fake inches to sea level rises. Skeptics denounce desperate attempt to salvage government global warming policies.

In a disturbing development in the ongoing global warming fiasco the U.S. government-funded Sea Level Research Group has been given a green light from NASA to exaggerate sea level rises way above actual recorded measurements. The reason? So that policy makers can falsely blame humans for adding to natural rises in sea levels.

Land Mass Rise Used as Excuse to Fiddle Data

The NASA-funded Sea Level Research Group is based at the University of Colorado. It made the announcement last week that it will begin adding a nonexistent 0.3 millimeters per year to its Global Mean Sea Level Time Series.

Reporting in Forbes Magazine on this farce is James M. Taylor, senior fellow for environment policy at The Heartland Institute. Taylor pinpoints that NASA’s reason for this latest trick is to “compensate” for rising land mass.

Most folk have now cottoned onto the shenanigans of government paid climatologists since Climategate. In 2009 a clique of secretive scientists were caught fudging world temperatures to make it appear the earth was warming unnaturally when it wasn’t.

But with interest in global warming now bottoming to a 20-year low desperate new measures are being dreamt up to scare voters into accepting more tax rises to stem non-existent ‘human caused climate change.’

Now government ‘experts’ claim they need to add the bogus extra 0.3 millimeters each year onto satellite measurements of our ocean levels, which will conjure up an 1.2 inches over the course of the 21st century, to ‘compensate’ for the rise in land which has been occurring without any human interference since the end of the last ice age 11,000 years ago.

Last Ice Age Melting Still Changing Our Planet

Back then Manhattan and most of England was buried under one mile of ice that compressed the ground like squeezing water from a sponge. Over time the land has slowly been springing back up as the weight of billions of tons of ice has melted.

Taylor points out that this steady pace of an 8-inch rise in sea levels for the last century is very much in line with previous rates of sea level rise during our current Holocene interglacial period.

But Taylor, managing editor of Environment & Climate News adds, “with an artificially enhanced 9.2 inches of sea level rise, alarmists can claim sea level is rising 31 percent faster than it did last century.”

He notes, “While this is not monumental in and of itself, it will allow alarmists to paint a dramatically different picture of sea level rise than is occurring in the real world.”

Skeptics are accusing NASA of needless fiddling to bail out the discredited United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which had hyped computer model guesstimates that we’d see 15 inches of sea level rise during the 21st century, which is double the rate recorded over the past century.

Even Al Gore No Longer Believes Sea Level Spin

However, rises in global temperatures have also stopped since the start of the 21st century and global cooling appears to have set in; according to independent researchers we may be on the cusp of a new ice age. Another clue that the global warming cult is on it’s last legs comes from former U.S. President, Al Gore, who first whipped up the frenzy about catastrophic sea level rises in his film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth;’  Gore is now the proud owner of a $9 million oceanfront villa in Montecito, California.

As the old saying goes, ‘follow the money’ and with so little real world data to back up increasingly discredited climate alarmism public interest in the global warming doomsaying continues to fall off a cliff.

US Govt Caught Hiding Earthquake Data to Discredit Climate Skeptic Expert?

By: John O’ Sullivan

New evidence shows US is not reporting worrying increase in earthquake activity predicted by independent skeptic expert.

Independent observers are monitoring an upsurge in seismic activity that began occurring across the United States during April 5 and 6 2011. It is feared that an earthquake similar in magnitude or greater than that which recently devastated Japan may hit the U.S. any time.

A live feed from the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) internet seismic server inexplicably went offline several times in a two-day period at a time when it appears increased seismic activity was occurring across the United States. The ANSS has offered no explanation for the anomaly.

The tremors are occurring at the precise time forecasted by Piers Corbyn, a leading British astrophysicist and weather forecaster. Corbyn believes heightened solar activity impacts not only our climate but also sets off earthquakes. Lately charged particles from solar flares have impacted our planet’s upper atmosphere at speeds of 560 miles per second.

Citizen Scientists Expose Government Cover Up

Reaction in the blogosphere has been instant. A YouTube video ‘New Madrid — multiple charts show movement — USGS censors data again’graphically illustrates how increased seismic activity is showing up via publicly accessible government data yet the U.S. authorities themselves are not reporting this latest worrying development.

The main agency responsible, United States Geological Survey (USGS) is another arm of corporate government like NASA, the EPA, the FDA which has been under sustained criticism for similarly manipulating global warming data.

Instruments show signs of significant seismic activity in a wide arc across Missouri, Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and Georgia. A 3.6 magnitude quake (minor) yesterday occurred in Greenbriar, Arkansas but conspicuously, the Helicorder for Portageville Missouri showed nothing on their maps. According to Richter scale seismic activity of 6 or above is considered ‘strong’ and is destructive in areas up to about 160 kilometres (100 mi) across in populated areas. A magnitude 3.6 quake caused Nevada’s PEPCON fuel plant explosion in 1988.

Latest Graphic Earthquake Images Shown on Youtube

In a 9-minute video commentator, ‘dutchsinse suggests that such a broad spread of so-called “harmonic movement” across the continent as “concerning.” Coincidentally, the Pacific Northwest volcano webcorders also showed earthquake activity for this same period.

‘Dutch’ is also concerned that government-funded researchers may be intentionally censoring inconvenient seismic activity that would lend credence to Corbyn’s claims that lunar gravitational forces are instrumental not only on Earth’s climate but also on earthquake activity.

Corbyn has only recently launched his new earthquake forecasting service encouraged by the dramatic upsurge of interest in his highly successful long-range weather forecasting. It seems he may also be well set to provide an equally indispensable public service with his earthquake predictions.

On his WeatherAction.com website Corbyn announced:

“The 6-9th April is our first major (Trial) Earthquake risk period of April and comes with related extreme weather events forecasts. In these trial periods we expect an increase in the serious M6.0 and above quakes in quake vulnerable locations (and related increases in lower level activity) around the world such as the Pacific ‘ring of fire’. This includes the WEST USA which in this time period is probably more vulnerable than for decades.”

Coincidentally, the Kentucky Division of Emergency Management issued a press release (April 5, 2011) cancelling a media conference scheduled  for yesterday on earthquake preparedness.

Public Not Being Advised as to the Dangers

The greatest concern is for the Yellowstone National Park’s super volcano that also recently took a deep “breath” causing miles of ground to rise dramatically. Yellowstone’s caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) area of Wyoming, is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago.

Volcanologists say the simmering giant volcano is due another cataclysmic event. Such an eruption would be a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helen’s 1980 eruption.

Concerned citizens may wish to Twitter @USGS and demand to know why they are not reporting the data about these known earthquake events.

Satellitegate – The saga continues

 

Like the Ark of the Covenant in Raiders of the Lost Ark, it appears the government warehouses satellites, too.

 

We have items on here about satellites that don’t work properly and satellites that have been destroyed during launch that you can read about here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

While I am not a big conspiracy person, I don’t see why I can’t wonder just what is going on with all of this and who or what is behind these problems?

Is it a conspiracy? Stupidity? Vanity? Someone upstairs quashing things? Inter-agency arguing? All of the aforementioned? Sheer coincidence? I can’t really say with any certainty one way or the other, but with all the goings on, I do feel perfectly justified in asking questions, as do others.

What are they hiding, if anything? Are the warmers afraid these new satellites will disprove all their global warming theories? Are the denialists afraid the satellites will prove that the warmers are correct and we do indeed have global warming? Is the government hiding something from us? I ask that last one because the article does mention that the USAF is interested on how solar rays affect their equipment. What equipment? HAARP? Something else we don’t know about?

Too over the top? Well maybe yes, maybe no. It may be something no one will ever know, or not find out for a hundred years. JFK was assassinated in 1963 and no one’s even seen what the whole deal was with that and we may never be privy to that information.

For those who are interested in this, Popsci has a very enlightening article today titled “Who Killed the Deep Space Climate Observatory, which was originally proposed by Al Gore in 1998 and then killed right after George W. Bush was elected.

In what sounds like the end to the Indiana Jones Movie, Raiders of the Lost Ark…….

Nearly a decade ago, NASA built an Earth-monitoring satellite that could have observed global warming in action. Then the agency stashed it in a warehouse in Maryland, where it remains to this day.

It’s an excellent article that will open your eyes to some of the CO2 Insanity that goes on behind the scenes at NASA, NOAA and the White House.  I, for one, would like to know why we have a very expensive piece of equipment ($100 million of your tax dollars) sitting in a warehouse for almost a decade that will shed some more light upon the global warming theory, regardless the outcome.

NASA designs new weapon for ICE Agents in Mexico

 

The latest technolgy from NASA?

 

Even after two unarmed ICE Agents in Mexico were murdered because they are left defenseless by government edict, Obama and Big Sis (Janet Napolitano) still do not want them to be armed. This is what I call a big fail!

This morning we had another failed satellite launch by NASA, that no doubt cost hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars, another bug fail!

I do not know who came up with this as I found it on Craigslist Rant & Raves, but it seems to me that based on the aforementioned, this just could be the latest in weaponry for ICE Agents in Mexico.  It seems logical to assume NASA may have invented this and it also seems logical to assume that Big Sis and Obama heartily approve of it.

Personally, regardless of what you think about Homeland Security or ICE, there are brave men and women going to Mexico unarmed. I find this rather appalling to say the least and I sincerely hope that the people in charge see the light and either start arming these agents or quit sending them to Mexico until the Mexican government relents. We’re sending these people to help them, not to start a revolution, or to usurp their authority. These people should be allowed be armed for self-protection – period.

Now, this is all just an educated guess, but if you connect the dots it makes sense to me anyway. More CO2 Insanity, minus the CO2.

As another NASA Climate Satellite Explodes – Conspiracy or Incompetence?

 

NASA Glory Satellite end up crashing in glory

 

 

By: John O’Sullivan

Cynics suggest foul play as NASA rocket explodes and yet another crucial space mission to measure global warming ends in disaster.

Reports are that a catastrophic system failure of the second NASA’s ‘Glory’ Satellite is believed to have caused the craft to crash into the ocean somewhere near Antarctica. The onboard Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO) was a satellite system designed to measure how tiny airborne particles in the atmosphere affect the earth’s climate.

Satellitegate conspiracy talk reared its ugly head again as soon as the rocket exploded shortly after take off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California.The satellite was, in fact, a replacement for the first OCO that also exploded in 2009 in similarly strange circumstances. Again, cynics are suggesting foul play.

The OCO system was designed to be instrumental in finally settling the global warming debate.The observatory would have been able to show scientists precisely how much energy is falling from the Sun onto Earth.

Thus researchers could have precisely calculated how much, if at all, human emissions of carbon dioxide were altering the climate; perhaps even proving that the scare over man-made global warming has been a hoax all along.

Lightning Strikes Twice’ to Thwart Climate Researchers

According to experts it appears the same problem that doomed the 2009 OCO launch has led to a second explosive failure causing further embarrassment to the faltering trillion-dollar US space agency. The back-to-back ‘Taurus XL’ failures have resulted in losses totaling nearly $700 million.

Despite NASA’s “ thorough investigation” and assurances that a problem with a detachable heat shield on the nose of the satellite had been fixed ‘lightning struck twice.’

“Exact same rocket, exact same failure” said BBC’s Science Correspondence Jonathan Amos who told BBC News viewers (March 4, 2011) that the “clam shell” nose cone covering that protected the rocket failed to detach properly five minutes into the launch.

The BBC speculated that the rocket might have been either too heavy or too slow precipitating the failure of the nose cone to detach; thereby the rocket’s trajectory fatally altered causing the craft to explode mid-flight.

More Proof to Deepen the SatelliteGate Scandal?

With yet another $250 million investment now laying on the bottom of the ocean floor the world is again left without reliable measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

As this author first exclusively reported in 2010, there are grave and persistent problems not only with both the OCO rockets but other satellites designed to measure climate change as shown herehereherehereherehere and here.

The OCO was “the only satellite in the world that will do the kind of global collection we need,” said James Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and one of the authors of a 2010 report on satellite monitoring of climate change. “And we haven’t thought about how to replace it.”

So will this turn out to be yet another ugly chapter in the Satellitegate scandal? A news conference is scheduled for later today to discuss this failure and how NASA will proceed. For updates check the NASA website here.

Is NASA going to hire Kim il-Jong?

Send me 100 of those babies and I'll cure global warming and compensate for my small dick all in one fell swoop!

Well, I thought the so-called science of global warming couldn’t possibly get any nuttier. Well, that’s what I get for thinking because those crazy computer models at NASA are now telling them that we can solve global warming with a nuclear war. Yes you heard right they claim they can cool off the planet’s temperature with a nuclear war! Per NASA Scientist Luke Olman at Goddard Space Flight Center we get the looniest f’in solution I’ve ever seen.

“I’m drawn to extreme scenarios,” said Luke Oman, a climate scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Perhaps the most extreme scenario in his portfolio is nuclear conflict. Using a NASA computer simulation, Oman and colleagues model the climate’s response to the smoke from fires brought about by regional nuclear war. His work, performed with colleagues at Rutgers University prior to joining NASA, is part of a larger panel discussing the issue on Feb. 18 at the meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in Washington.

Well all we  seem to need is about 100 of what’s in the below photo going off and global warming is solved. So easy a caveman could do it!

Well hot damn! Let’s call Kim il-Jong and get him to fire those nuclear warheads up and solve global warming in one fell swoop! If this is what NASA scientists get paid to do all day then perhaps there’s some more places that Congress can do some budget cutting! Taxpayers everywhere should be going nuclear over this one.

Others are finally starting to get Satellitegate

NASA's Carbon Observatory Crashed and Burned (NASA)

Finally it appears that others are awakening to the fact that there are problems with those satellites that we reported about months ago, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. From the Washington Post we get this article titled “Aging and failed satellites jeopardize efforts to collect data on climate change.”

Shortly after it lifted off in February 2009, NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory crashed into the Pacific Ocean near Antarctica. With that, a $250 million investment became scrap metal on the ocean floor and an effort to begin using satellites to measure atmospheric carbon dioxide and trace emission-reduction actions was dealt a huge setback.

The OCO was “the only satellite in the world that will do the kind of global collection we need,” said James Lewis, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and one of the authors of a 2010 report on satellite monitoring of climate change. “And we haven’t thought about how to replace it.”

There are other problems in the works……

2005 report by the National Research Council sounded the alarm about the climate satellite system, declaring it was “at risk of collapse,” largely because of weakening of U.S. financial support for such programs. The 2010 report by Lewis and others asserted that half of all climate satellites will have outlived their design life within the next eight years.

The bottom line is the computer models suck (garbage in and garbage out) and they are desperate for good satellite data to really get a handle on what or what isn’t going on with the Earth’s climate. While I believe anthropogenic global warming is a sham I would be happy if they actually got some good data on things to give us a better idea of what is really going on. The way things are now they might as well toss the dice.

You can read their article about all the other failures and problems at the source below. Just don’t say we didn’t tell you about it. More CO2 Insanity.

Vast Solar Eruption Shocks NASA and Raises Doubts on Sun

Vast Solar Eruption Shocks NASA and Raises Doubts on Sun Theory

By: John O’Sullivan

NASA reports an entire hemisphere of the sun has erupted. The U.S. space agency now admits the cataclysm puts existing solar theories in doubt.

We are forever being told that the sun is a vast gas ball of hydrogen and helium at the center of our solar system. But new evidence may help prove this isn’t the case after all, according to solar experts who say the sun has an iron core.

A stunned NASA admits, “Astronomers knew they had witnessed something big. It was so big, it may have shattered old ideas about solar activity.”

The vast global solar eruption covers ~10^9 km of the solar photosphere. The US space agency reports, “The whole solar hemisphere erupted simultaneously in an avalanche effect that had been triggered in the tiny solar core and propagated outwards” (NASA: Dec 13, 2010).

Scientist have confirmed that the explosion that occurred on August 1, 2010 is unprecedented in recorded history and caused filaments of magnetism to snap and explode creating enormous shock waves that raced across the stellar surface. This caused billion-ton clouds of hot gas to billow out into space.

This unprecedented event is claimed to give support to an alternative theory long held by Professor Oliver K. Manuel, a Postdoctoral Fellow of the University of California, Berkeley.

Event believed to be a Self Organized Criticality

In a never seen before occurrence, an entire hemisphere of the sun erupted simultaneously in an avalanche effect triggered from inside the compact solar core and propagated outwards; scientists are describing the astonishing happening as like the sand pile effect in Self Organised Criticality.

Self Organized Criticality (SOC) occurs in physics when a critical point is reached in a dynamic system in flux whereby the system radically alters its behavior or structure, for example, from being a solid to acting like a liquid.

SOC is one of a number of important discoveries made in statistical physics and related fields over the latter half of the 20th century, discoveries which relate particularly to the study of complexity in nature. Such new evidence, say Manuel, must now force solar scientists to think again.

Cliff Saunders, working for the Neutron-Repulsion Group, describes how our sun may now, in fact, be more like an atom rather than a huge gas ball. He explains, “In the atom, electrons occupy 99% of the volume and have less than 1% of the mass. In the Sun, the atmosphere and planets occupy 99% of the volume and may also have less than 1% of the mass.”

Is NASA Bonkers?

Is NASA or someone at NASA bonkers? I was just going over my news stuff on Yahoo and from the NASA Earth Observatory box  I saw an item titled “Arctic Sea Ice Melting and Moving” that was noted as put up 7 hours ago (it’s 6:03PM in New York right now). I found the premise interesting, especially since it’s getting to be winter in the Arctic and the sea ice is building again.

Clicking upon the link I went directly to this page at NASA Earth Observatory. (I took a screen shot for posterity in case it “inconveniently” disappears at a later date – if so, put a comment up and I’ll put the screenshot up.

Nice pictures eh? The same ones are at the top of my post. Their post is dated today (November 10, 2010), so it’s not an old article. If you look underneath each photo there are dates. Note the year on those photos. RADARSAT mosaic April 2008, April 30, 2008 and November 30, 2008.

Now, I don’t know about you but I have to question why NASA would publish what I consider to be an alarmist article about the melting sea ice in the Arctic that’s based upon data from 2008? Is it funding time? Are they worried about what’s going to happen with the Republicans taking over the House of Representatives and feel the need to (pardon the pun) turn the heat up?

Or, is it merely that someone at NASA is trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes? As you can see from the below chart the sea ice really is building already, it’s not melting. Moreover, it’s slightly above 2009 and also above 2007 which is a good sign it could be building back up from the 2007 low. Perhaps a mistake?

Well, at least they didn’t include a touchy-feely photo of mama polar bear and her cubs supposedly stranded on a small iceberg. Seems like more CO2 insanity to me.
