Who do you believe with the weather, much-less fish?

Remember when NOAA echoing the UN IPCC, claimed snow would retreat north with the storm tracks and major cities would get more rain and mild winters. The Union of Concerned Scientists said in 2004 scientists claim winters were becoming warmer and less snowy. In 2008, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. bemoaned that children would be robbed of the childhood joys of sledding and skiing in the DC area due to global warming. A year later, the area set a new seasonal snowfall record with 5 to 6 feet of snow and sleds and skis were the only way to get around. 
I do not know about NOAA but I think it is butt ass cold outside and I live in South Florida. The other day, we had ice on the truck?
They, cannot even get a forecast right and the government wants them to be in charge of our fisheries and anglers to which know more about fish from first hand experiences, rather than test tube fishes in a lab.
NOAA’s Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenko, when she was president of AAAS in 1999, urged “Urgent and unprecedented environmental and social changes challenge scientists to define a new social contract … a commitment on the part of all scientists to devote their energies and talents to the most pressing problems of the day, in proportion to their importance, in exchange for public funding.”

Instead of focusing on where skeptics get their money, the congress should be focusing on whether they can trust the global warming scientists in data centers, labs and most universities who have benefited to the tune of over $73 billion in the last two decades.
Ronald Coase, 
Nobel Economic Sciences, said in 1991
“If we torture the data long enough, it will confess.”
So is 2010 the warmest year?, the 2000s the warmest decade? … Don’t bet on it!
