This evidence has been compiled by scientists and engineers from around the world, using satellites, weather balloons, thermometers, buoys, and other observing systems. The sum total of this evidence tells an unambiguous story: the planet is warming.”
They added this, as if to pile on to make things sound even worse than the above picture: "Climate change produces a variety of stresses on society, affecting human health, natural ecosystems, built environments, and existing social, institutional, and legal agreements. These stresses interact with each other and with other non-climate stresses, such as habitat fragmentation, pollution, increased consumption patterns, and biodiversity loss."
And just to show you what their goal of all these lies and distortions are, they tell us here: "Large reductions in global emissions, similar to the lower emissions scenario (B1) analyzed in this assessment, would be necessary to avoid some of the worst impacts and risks of climate change. The targets called for in international agreements would require even larger reductions than those outlined in scenario B1 (Figure 1). Meanwhile, global emissions are still rising, and are on track to be even higher than the high emissions scenario analyzed in this report."
And, "Adaptation considerations include local, state, regional, national, and international jurisdictional 1 issues. For example, in managing water supplies to adapt to a changing climate, the implications of international treaties should be considered in the context of managing the Great Lakes, the Columbia River, and the Colorado River to deal with increased drought risk. Both `bottom up' community planning and `top down' national strategies may help regions deal with impacts such as increases in electrical brownouts, heat stress, floods, and wildfires. Such a mix of approaches will require cross-boundary coordination at multiple levels as operational agencies integrate adaptation planning into their programs."

Toward further convincng the nation of their claims, the Warmers have altered past temperature records, making them lower, so that modern temps look much higher relatively.
Here is the proof!!
As of 1999, NASA showed that 1934 was more than one degree (Fahrenheit) warmer than 1998, and that 1921, 1931 and 1953 were all warmer than 1998.
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also published data showing that the 1930s was by far the hottest decade of the last 100-years or so.
Raw temperature data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that US temperatures have been cooling for 90 years, and that 2012 is tied with 1921 at 55.3 degrees.
NOAA then takes this same data, distorts it, and turns it into a Warmers' dream, showing 2012 much hotter than any other year on record. These con-artists are blatant and bold liars.
After having altered past temperature records, the Warmers now show that 1934 is about 0.1C or 0.2F _cooler_ than 1998. In other words, the total downward adjustment of 1934 is almost 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit relative to 1998.
More lies, more distortion of data, more rewriting of history to convince the nation of their phony claims, because otherwise, their predictions never come true.
The result of this skullduggery is that the temperature records just happen to fit their predictive theoretical models, which was one of the purposes of changing the old temperature records.
Never trust anything the Warmers say; never trust their studies or data. Always check them out. For you'll most likely discover that they've rigged the results toward their pet ideology: "global warming."
