Climate scientists, media enablers…and selective memory loss

Memory loss has become epidemic amongst climate scientists and their media enablers.

Alaska – 100 Degrees In 1915

The official record high in Alaska of 100F, was set at Fort Yukon on June 27, 1915.

“If you think about it, that’s pretty dumb.”…there’s really no evidence that we’re in the midst of an extreme weather era – whether man has influenced climate or not, said University of Colorado professor Roger Pielke, with the Center for Science and Technology Research.

“If you look over the long term, and buy long term I mean 100 years or more, there’s actually no up or down in United States hurricane landfalls,” he said. “Within that period, there are time periods where there are more or less.”

“Over the long term, there is no evidence that disasters are getting worse because of climate change,” Pielke said.

But we’re seeing more extreme weather because of phone videos, the internet, cable news, weather chasers and high tech radar…

1941 Heat Wave Caused DC Cherry Trees To Blossom In October, Missing History1910-1940 Warming Was Faster, 1948 Shock News : Hurricane Force Winds At Forty Below Zero,

Labor Day, 1935. 

It really does go on and on. Drought, floods, cold, hot, snow, hurricanes and cyclones. Many of the worst weather events also happened in the 19th century, especially in Australia. But that is all it is…weather.

Various climate scientists and meteorologists, including our own BOM have adjusted weather data until it’s completely out of shape, pre 1970 downward, and upward since, to try and show a steep warming to suit ideology and government grants.

The New Zealand  weather service (NIWS), were actually taken to court to prove their adjustments were wrong, but they ended up disowning the data instead. The same person doing this adjustment also had long connections to the University of East Anglia where the Climategate fiasco originated. The same university that employed the News of the World scandal detectives for their Public relations exercise, (Neil Wallis and the “Poor Phil” Article) following the Climategate scandal.

Memory loss is just a nice way of putting it. Fraud, scandals, grant and funding scams are more likely the real plot for ‘climate scientists’ and media enablers.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level. If you note a photo or description may be wrong, please e-mail to
