'Warmest July on record!' my ass

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced this week that according to their calculations, July 2015 was the hottest month since instrumental records began in 1880. NOAA says that the record was set by eight one-hundredths of a degree Celsius over that set in July 1998. NASA calculates that July 2015 beat what they assert was the previous warmest month (July 2011) by two one-hundredths of a degree.

But government spokespeople rarely mention the inconvenient fact that these records are being set by less than the uncertainty in the statistics. NOAA claims an uncertainty of 14 one-hundredths of a degree in its temperature averages, or near twice the amount by which they say the record was set. NASA says that their data is typically accurate to one tenth of a degree, five times the amount by which their new record was set.

Speaking of climate,
Using DMI’s 30% concentration ice as the measure of extent, 2015 was the shortest melt season on record in the Arctic. Ice peaked around March 25, and bottomed around September 3. The melt season was about three weeks shorter than average.

Now, if this were connected to anyone other than a rich and "I know people" politician,(and even then if it was a 'not friendly to the administration' R) the EffingBI would've been at the door with a warrant for the server, ANYTHING that might've been connected to or had data transferred to from the server, and any records on the matter as soon as they heard about it.  Since it's Clinton, not so much.

But the EffingBI director, we're told, is a very ethical guy who can be trusted.

"And in gun control news, Senators Schumer and Feinstein introduced the Law Enforcement Safety Act of 2015, which calls for the registration of floor tiles and truck bedliner, and requires it only be sold to licensed professionals."

Ok, officers, crap like this really doesn't help you be seen as in-control good guys.

Yes, I still want to see this someday.  As I've noted, preferably not in a "OHGODWE'REGONNA DIE!" circumstance, but I DO want to see it.

I want to hear these questions asked.  Every one of them.
