more evidence that THEY LIE!
and now this:
...GISS's computerised temperature maps seemed to show readings across a large part of Russia had been up to 10 degrees higher than normal. But when expert readers of the two leading warming-sceptic blogs, Watts Up With That and Climate Audit, began detailed analysis of the GISS data they made an astonishing discovery. The reason for the freak figures was that scores of temperature records from Russia and elsewhere were not based on October readings at all. Figures from the previous month had simply been carried over and repeated two months running.
The error was so glaring that when it was reported on the two blogs - run by the US meteorologist Anthony Watts and Steve McIntyre, the Canadian computer analyst who won fame for his expert debunking of the notorious "hockey stick" graph - GISS began hastily revising its figures. This only made the confusion worse because, to compensate for the lowered temperatures in Russia, GISS claimed to have discovered a new "hotspot" in the Arctic - in a month when satellite images were showing Arctic sea-ice recovering so fast from its summer melt that three weeks ago it was 30 per cent more extensive than at the same time last year.
read the whole article here.i don't know exactly why the pholks behind the whole global warming hysteria are doing what they are doing, but i can make a few educated guesses. i think the main reason is that the truth is not what is important, but the message. the message is that mankind is bad for the planet, and since we (those folks stirring the pot) can't kill everyone to save mother earth, we (again, you know, those folks) will concoct something really frightening, get a big time politician to pimp the idea, and force everyone into doing as we say, and thinking as we want them to think.
just a guess.
but THEY LIE!
UPDATE11/17/08. Gus has his own take on the article here. interesting stuff.

10 days and counting
my goal is to get to the point where i can actually sit down and enjoy the occasional manly cigar and adult beverage without having to worry about my sliding back into the pack of cigars a day routine.
a special thanks to Beeb for the tip on Swedish Snus. a very old friend of mine Skoal just wasn't making it. peppermint is one of my favorite flavors anyway, so this is my version of the patch. it's working, so what can i say.
Hey Beebs, i found it at the Briar Shop at Arden Mall in Sacto in case you don't want to drive into SF....

bummer. bye Opus.
for a detailed explanation of why he has pulled the plug on one of America's most beloved modern comic character, follow this link to an article exploring the end of Opus.
Good night, little fellow....
i know, it's kind of sad to see a grown man bummed about the demise of a comic strip in this world of upheaval and turmoil. but then, that's probably why i'm so bummed out. and Opus has been watching over me in the computer room for a long time. he was a Christmas gift from my ever so insightful daughter.
