President Joe Biden has long made addressing climate change a central part of his governing agenda. However, new data suggests that his agenda is based on a lie.
The study suggests urbanization has led to inflated temperature estimates
Dr. Roy Spencer and Professor John Christy are atmospheric scientists at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and The Daily Sceptic reported that Spencer has posted research to his blog which suggests that temperature readings from urban areas has created a false narrative regarding global warming.
Specifically, they argue that increased urbanization around airports (where climate readings are often taken) has caused localized temperature increases, which has in turn led to inflated climate change estimates.
“Once the de-urbanization procedure is applied to the individual ISD (Integrated Surface Database) stations, the results show an average trend fully 50% below that produced by the official NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) product,” Spencer wrote.
That evidence runs contrary to the president’s position on climate change, a fact he made clear while speaking at an event in Somerset, Massachusetts this past July.
“As President, I have a responsibility to act with urgency and resolve when our nation faces clear and present danger,” he said according to White House transcripts.
Biden boasts of shutting down coal-fired power plants
“And that’s what climate change is about,” Biden declared. “It is literally, not figuratively, a clear and present danger.”
The president raised eyebrows last week when he boasted at an event in California that coal fired plants will be “shut down” throughout the country.

“And all they’re doing is, they’re going to save them a hell of a lot of money and they’re using the same transmission line that transmitted the coal-fired, uh, electric on,” the president said, adding, “We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America.”
Fox News reported that West Virginia’s moderate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin was angered by Biden’s remarks and pushed back on them Saturday.
“President Biden’s comments are not only outrageous and divorced from reality, they ignore the severe economic pain the American people are feeling because of rising energy costs,” Fox News quoted him as saying.
