This quote from meteorologist Joe D’aleo speaks for itself. (Read the full post on the NoTricksZone.com blog.)
The problem is that the same staff responsible for creating the reports about the climate (USGCRP, State of the Climate, EPA TSD, IPPC) and running some of the greenhouse models that project the scary scenarios (NOAA and downstream NASA) are also responsible for the databases that validate the forecasts. The actual data should be constructed independently of the forecasts with people who do not have a financial and personal interest in seeing their forecasts verify. Indeed we see in the independent datasets like the satellite and balloon based ones, widespread model failures.

Two satellites which will answer the question of what impact carbon dioxide (CO2) content in the atmosphere has with real data, not models, are on track with NASA: the Orbital Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) and The Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO). OCO-2 launches this summer; CLARREO is in the development stage for launch or locating on the International Space Station during the next decade.

Using faulty computer models to forecast climate chaos condemns millions to untimely deaths

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sensibly refuses to attend yet another climate summit — this one called by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in New York for Sept. 23, under the auspices of the United Nations, which profits handsomely from the much-exaggerated climate scare.
