The Greatest Scientific Fraud Of All Time — Part XXIII

Genesis cover

On Christmas Eve 1968 three Americans became the first humans to visit another world. What they did to celebrate was unexpected and profound, and will be remembered throughout all human history. Genesis: the Story of Apollo 8, Robert Zimmerman's classic history of humanity's first journey to another world, tells that story, and it is now available as both an ebook and an audiobook, both with a foreword by Valerie Anders and a new introduction by Robert Zimmerman.

The ebook is available everywhere for $5.99 (before discount) at amazon, or direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit.

The audiobook is also available at all these vendors, and is also free with a 30-day trial membership to Audible.

"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News

Link here. The author continues a long running series outlining the data manipulation and tampering that has been going on at NOAA and NASA to distort the global temperature record so it will confirm the theories of global warming activists. As he notes,

Sure enough, there have been additional adjustments, as always in the same direction — older down, and newer up. But those adjustments between v.3 and v.4 have been relatively minor. More significantly, Kirye discovered a different maneuver which is even more incredible, and which he proves by direct links back to NASA’s own website: In the v.4 graphs that it provides, NASA has relabeled the hugely-adjusted v.3 data as “unadjusted.”

He pinpoints how NASA is now taking its adjusted data and labeling them unadjusted, so that it can justify even more adjustments, all always cooling the past and warming the present. As he adds,

Funny that once again, each one of the adjustments somehow enhances the warming trend. Is it really possible that never once does any new data, or adjustment to data, lead to a change in the other direction?

This is political hackwork disguised as science. Until the climate science community does something to stop this and clean up the mess in its global temperature data, they will find themselves unable to convince anyone of their scientific credibility. Which by the way is generally in the sewer.


We are now in the third week of my annual July fund-raiser for Behind the Black. My deep thanks to everyone who has so far donated or subscribed. The response this year has been wonderful.

We are not done yet. This monthly fund-raiser is now half over, and I am hoping the second half will result in as many donations as the first half did. If it does, I will remain free to continue my writing as I see fit, unblemished by the efforts of others to squelch my perspective in this increasingly intolerant world.

This year's fund-raising drive is also significant in that it celebrates the 10th anniversary of this website's founding. It is hard to believe, but I have been doing this for a full decade, during which I have written more than 22,000 posts, of which more than 1,000 were essays and almost 2,600 were evening pauses.

Therefore, I hope you will please consider donating to Behind the Black, by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below. Your support will allow me to continue covering science and culture as I have for the past twenty years, independent and free from any outside influence.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:


If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to

    Thank you. Bookmarked.

    The data indicates glaciers are, on average, shrinking for the past couple of hundred years. Well, at least from the “Little Ice Age” (LIA) in the mid 1800s.

    I took a day and went up to the Athabasca glacier last week to look at the documented recession. Interesting that Parks Canada is now admitting that this glacier was not there 5000 years ago but forest covered the mountains there. This was a discovery by a prof from the U of A (Alberta not Arizona).

    When looking at a toe marker, there was a map of where the toe was dating from the end of LIA. Looking at the time frames for markers, it is clear that the recession is slowing, being greatest in the early 1900s (after the Dalton minimum). This was not easy to see as markers were placed a times where it appeared to be speeding up. One had to look at the time intervals.

    Interesting to see what lay below the ice we used to do crevasse rescue teaching; shocking too. The surface was pretty smooth in comparison to the underlying rock; by a long shot.

    The thing is: the recession rate is slowing. Should the current solar minimum and cycle change continue as the last 20 years, things could change to advancing. The Athabasca at this time is stil receding, do not get me wrong.

    I still say the real fraud is the proposed solutions.

    You shouldn’t believe everything you read on blogs just because it suits what you want to believe.

  • wayne

    That, is good advice.

    That having been said— I distinctly recall in the mid 1970’s, we were facing an “imminent catastrophic ice-age.” (requiring massive government intervention, dontchaknow) And concurrently, “all the oil on earth would be gone by the year 2000.”

  • Cotour

    Thats great for the Norwegians, but all they have really done is exported their pollution to “other” places that produce the electricity that they charge their autos with and burn the oil that they themselves draw from the ground and introduce into the market place.

    One way or another the work must be done to produce the electricity, and that work is either accomplished by burning oil, or burning natural gas or through nuclear processes. All three have their draw backs.

    “But I charge my auto using solar panels”. Fine, but what work was done to produce the materials that constitute the solar panels and the batteries and other components in your auto? One way or another the work must be done, no way around it.

    The Ecat may be an interesting solution to dial down the amount of power required to do that work through the phenomenon that allows it to apparently produce more output power than input power.

  • Phill O

    Cotour remember coal is a big unit for power production as are hydro dams.

    You are absolutely correct in the concept of what is required to get the electricity and looking at the production of solar panel, windmills, tidal projects, geothermal etc.

    That being said, new technology is required to find optimal solutions. Just think about the technologies used in North America for clean coal versus what China is doing. If solar panels could be developed where printers would be used, the productions costs could drop orders of magnitude. New battery technologies and more efficient battery production is also required.

  • Cotour

    Yes, lots of interesting and innovative ways to do the work, both old and new.

    But the Out of sight / Out of mind technique can be deceiving.

    One way or another the work must be done.

    What is the “carbon” foot print of a hydro electric dam amortized over its life? Its clean while in operation but on the back end massive work has been accomplished to achieve the front end “clean” operation.

    There are not many ways around the equation. I propose the Ecat as a possible “way around” the equation but we have not heard a lot about it even though it does seem to be being tested and apparently proven on an ongoing basis.

    This is a site that does this work, also, alot of programming.
