The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has been caught red-handed manipulating temperature data to show "global warming" where none actually exists. At Amberley, Queensland, for example, the data at a weather station showing 1 degree Celsius cooling per century was "homogenized" (adjusted) by the Bureau so that it instead showed a 2.5 degrees warming per century. At Rutherglen, Victoria, a cooling trend of -0.35 degrees C per century was magically transformed at the stroke of an Australian meteorologist's pen into a warming trend of 1.73 degrees C per century. Last year, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology made headlines in the liberal media by claiming that 2013 was Australia's hottest year on record. This prompted Australia's alarmist-in-chief Tim Flannery - an English literature graduate who later went on to earn his scientific credentials with a PhD in palaeontology, digging up ancient kangaroo bones - to observe that global warming in Australia was "like climate change on steroids." But we now know, thanks to research by Australian scientist Jennifer Marohasy, that the hysteria this story generated was based on fabrications and lies. Though the Bureau of Meteorology has insisted its data adjustments are "robust", it has been unable to come up with a credible explanation as to why it translated real-world data showing a cooling trend into homogenized data showing a warming trend.
She wrote: “Repetition is a propaganda technique. The deletion of information from records, and the use of exaggeration and half-truths, are others. The Bureau of Meteorology uses all these techniques, while willfully ignoring evidence that contradicts its own propaganda.’’ This is a global problem. Earlier this year, Breitbart reported that similarly dishonest adjustments had been made to temperature records by NASA and NOAA. Similarly implicated are the UK temperature records of the Met Office Hadley Centre and at Phil "Climategate" Jones's disgraced Climatic Research Unit at the Unive
HOUSTON, Aug. 21, 2014 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] recently completed the Phase Two Spacecraft Safety Review of its Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 spacecraft and the Critical Design Review (CDR) of its integrated systems, meeting all of the company’s Commercial Crew Integrated Capability (CCiCap) milestones on time and on budget. The reviews were Boeing’s final two milestones in the current phase of its partnership with NASA. Completed in July, the CDR milestone marks a significant step in reaching the ultimate design that will be used for the spacecraft, launch vehicle and related systems. Propulsion, software, avionics, landing, power and docking systems were among 44 individual CDRs conducted as part of the broader review.
So far this month, Ba has delivered only 34 planes. There are only 11 days left in the month.
Tuesdays are usually a big 737 delivery day but for the last 4 weeks, thay have not managed to get more than one or two delivered.
Production does not seem to be the problem.
On a positive note, the 787 has a number of planes ready and more being added each day.
So the planes are available for delivery.
They need to get teh delivery gates open wide.
The Boeing Co., Seattle, Washington, is being awarded a $30,385,333 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract (N00019-12-C-0112) for the development of a structural repair manual in support of the P-8A Poseidon Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft. Work will be performed in Seattle, Washington, and is expected to be completed in November 2018.
With the month half over, BA has delivered 30 planes.
19 737's, 4 777's and 7 787's.
Given the production rate of 737's, there are a lot of planes sitting on the tarmac waiting for customers to take delivery.
787 delivery has been pretty good.
Hopefuly they can get 64+ planes delivered this month in order to hit the low end target for 715 by year end.
