We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
ARGH. Just went back to check on synthetic production. Apparently - I have no memory of this at all - we're not doing observed rain days! It's all synthetic from 1990 onwards. So I'm going to need conditionals in the update program to handle that. And separate gridding before 1989. And what TF happens to station counts?
OH FUCK THIS. It's Sunday evening, I've worked all weekend, and just when I thought it was done I'm hitting yet another problem that's based on the hopeless state of our databases. There is no uniform data integrity, it's just a catalogue of issues that continues to grow as they're found.
As far as the hacked emails from the CRU in East Anglia area concerned, it's what we climate skeptics have been saying all along. The smoking gun, so to speak. And will it be believed? Of course not There's too much money, invested by too many con men all over the Western world, in this for it to be believed. Just saw two more "we' ll all be fried by global warming" stories today on the 'Net. Lord Monckton had a posting somewhere on the Net today. Very well written, as usual, and very convincing. But the climate warming cabal won't let the mainstream media cover it. And the MSM has become the propaganda arm of the Liberal Left. And the climate conference in Copenhagen is less than a month away.
People believe what they want/need to believe, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Very depressing.
Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch, nay, you may kick it all about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, The Professor at the Breakfast Table
