EPA Malfeasance? Fantasyland, Part 2

From a memo suppressed by EPA:

"...Our conclusions do represent the best science in the sense of most closely corresponding to available observations....and are sufficiently at variance with those of IPCC, CCSP, and the draft TSP that we believe they support our increasing concern that EPA has not critically reviewed the findings by these groups."...

"...we believe our concerns and reservations are sufficiently important to warrant a serious review of the science by EPA before any attempt is made to reach conclusions. ..."

[In critiquing the EPA's TSP] "The principal comments are as follows:

"The current draft TSP is based on the IPCC AR4 report which is at best three years out of date in a rapidly changing field.

..."Global temperatures have declined, extending the current downtrend to 11 the same time, atmospheric CO2 levels have increased and CO2 emissions have accelerated.

..."A new 2009 paper finds that the crucial assumption in the GCM models [used by IPCC concerning water vapor] is not supported by empirical evidence and that the feedback is actually negative."

There is plenty more.

In short, the reservations are extremely serious--flawed/faulty premises, observations contradicting IPCC projections, and new criticisms of Global Warming Theory which deserve a very close look.

Fantasyland Exposed, folks.
