In its most recent report, it stated that observed reductions in mountain ice in the Andes, Alps and Africa was being caused by global warming, citing two papers as the source of the information.
However, it can be revealed that one of the sources quoted was a feature article published in a popular magazine for climbers which was based on anecdotal evidence from mountaineers about the changes they were witnessing on the mountainsides around them.
The other was a dissertation written by a geography student, studying for the equivalent of a master’s degree, at the University of Berne in Switzerland that quoted interviews with mountain guides in the Alps.
The revelations, uncovered by The Sunday Telegraph, have raised fresh questions about the quality of the information contained in the report, which was published in 2007.
Friday: “We need to trim the budget” Monday: “Let’s increase the deficit to a new record high” Thanks, Obama
And he wonders why the GOP laughed at his lies. There is NOTHING worth a damn in this ass. He lies, badly, to the US. He undermines our security. He bows to everyone he can find, except for the people he is supposed to serve.
Two days ago Barack Obama told the American public that trimming the budget deficit was as important as creating jobs. This was after he tripled the budget deficit in 2009.
President Barack Obama said Saturday that trimming budget deficits is as important as creating jobs, his top domestic priority this year, to continue the economic recovery that appears under way.
But that was Saturday…
Today Barack Obama proposed a record budget that will increase the US budget deficit by at least $100 billion dollars. Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget will cause the deficit to skyrocket to a record $1.6 trillion.
President Barack Obama will propose on Monday a $3.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2011 that projects the deficit will shoot up to a record $1.6 trillion this year, but would push the red ink down to about $700 billion, or 4% of the gross domestic product, by 2013, according to congressional aides.
The deficit for the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30, would eclipse last year’s $1.4 trillion deficit, in part due to new spending on a proposed jobs package. The president also wants $25 billion for cash-strapped state governments, mainly to offset their funding of the Medicaid health program for the poor.
GETTING weird? Been there, done that, moved onto crazy.
OK. This is getting really weird.

At least it wasn’t a full waiter’s bow.
