Bolivia – Coldest temps in nearly half a century kill 6 million fish
This is an “environmental catastrophe” brought on by the lowest temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov. Ruben Costas told reporters.
11 Feb 14 -Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an alert following the deaths of 6 million fish from the unusually cold weather gripping the country in recent weeks.
The provincial government said the fish died in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers that run through the tropical region.
Temperatures in southern and eastern Bolivia dropped severely, even falling below 0 C (32 F) in areas where the thermometer is usually above 20 C (68 F).
Bolivia’s weather service warns that a new cold front will enter the southern and eastern parts of the country this week.

Have we progressed?! 2013: Warmists blame Syrian drought on man-made global warming — Flashback 1933: ‘YO-YO BANNED IN SYRIA – Blamed For Drought By Moslems’
Drought and severe cold is disast-rously affecting the cattle in Syria,and the Moslem chiefs at Damascushave attributed the wrath of the heavens to the recent introduction of the yo-yo. They say that while the people are praying for rain to come down fromabove the yo-yo goes down, and before reaching the ground springsup through the subtle pull of the string.
The chiefs interviewed the PrimeMinister, and exposed the evil influ-ence of yo-yos, so they were immediately banned. To-day the police paraded the streets and confiscated the yo-yos from everyone they saw playing with them.…

NASA Apollo Astronaut Walter Cunningham says trust in NASA and science has been abused
Donn F. Eisele, Walter M. Schirra, Jr. and Walter Cunningham. Walter Cunningham is a fighter pilot and a physicist and was the Lunar Module pilot on the Apollo 7 mission. In a 263 hour mission in October 1968 the three astronauts covered four and a half million miles. Over forty years later, he describes how the public trust built by the astronauts and technical specialists who put man on the moon has been abused by opportunists. NASA and science has changed. … * * * Below are selected snippets of Larry Bell’s interview with Walter Cunningham: Those of us fortunate enough to have traveled in space bet our lives on the competence, dedication, and integrity of the science and technology professionals who made our missions possible…In the last twenty years, I have watched the high standards of science being violated by a few influential climate scientists, including some at NASA, while special interest opportunists have abused our public trust.” Many of NASA’s retirees have grown increasingly concerned that GISS, a NASA organization located in a midtown Manhattan office building, was allowing its science to be politicized, compromising their credibility. Our concern, beyond damage to the NASA’s exemplary […]Rating: 8.0/10 (2 votes cast)

Skeptic Murry Salby responds to the attacks on his record: ‘Salby was sacked from Macquarie U., & Macquarie struggled to explain why, among other things, it was necessary to abandon, and strand him in Paris and hold a ‘misconduct’ meeting in his absence’
Murry Salby responds to the attacks on his record
Murry Salby was sacked from Macquarie University, and Macquarie struggled to explain why, among other things, it was necessary to abandon, and strand him in Paris and hold a “misconduct” meeting in his absence. Since then he has been subject to attacks related to his previous employment. I’ve asked him to respond, which he has at length in a PDF here. The figures listed below refer to that PDF, which encompasses 15 years of events. I don’t have the resources (unlike the National Science Foundation, the NSF) to investigate it all, but wanted to give Murry the right of reply. On closer inspection the NSF report used by people to attack Salby does not appear to be the balanced, impartial analysis I would have expected. Indeed the hyperbolic language based on insubstantial evidence is disturbing to say the least. Because of the long detailed nature of this I cannot draw conclusions, except to say that any scientist who responds to a question about Murry Salby’s work with a reference to his employment is no scientist. Remember the NSF report was supposedly an inhouse private document. It was marked “Confidential”, subject to the Privacy Act, with disclosure outside the NSF prohibited […]Rating: 10.0/10 (1 vote cast)
