The lead article references the U.N. World Meteorological Organization and the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Britain; both are suspect sources because of their partisan nature regarding the earth's climate which was adequately demonstrated through their involvement with the now discredited U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and subsequent reports, and, the latter, with Climate-gate.
The NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is also referenced in the lead article and is the source for the second article. This article quotes Jim Hansen, director of the GISS who is also known to be an advocate for AGW (see, e.g., The Threat to the Planet).
So, the bottom line is, there is nothing new here; just more global warming/climate change alarmism from the AGW cabal and their water-carriers, the MSM.
Update: Why Is NASA Hiding James Hansen’s Ethics Records?
The climate change fanatic has plenty of outside income. Did he obtain the proper waivers from NASA as he must according to the law?
