John Christy

Associate of known TASSC science-fraud felons Patrick J. Michaels, and Steve Milloy, also continuous association with felony fraud organized crime operation APCO Associates. Court records ordered to be publically posted online for the nation to see unequivically shows that TASSC was conceived as a criminal fraud operation by Philip Morris Tobacco and engaged in a years-long series of public deceptions using compliant science-hoaxers known as "whitecoats" by the crime masterminds and moneybags.

Christy uses the "TASSC METHOD" of inserting errors into the public record, which when caught are reluctantly retracted, but the false results are quoted endlessly into the future by collaborative operators.

[Background evidence passed through due process in a Federal Court of Law establishing the criminal fraud nature of TASSC has been ordered posted online on the internet by the judge so that every citizen can examine this evidence of fraud for themselves. The trial ended with $280,000,000,000 settlement by the tobacco paymasters, so this is hardly a trial which wasn't fought tooth & nail. This is a very partial listing of evidence.

Satellite temperature record

Christy became famous as early as 1993 [creation of TASSC] for claiming the global temperature was actually decreasing based on the "more accurate" satellite data. But others over the years have shown errors in his interpretation of the data which has slowly and consistently increased his results. This is in addition to the improving accuracy of the short data set [4] (it begins in December 1978). In 1997 his testimony to the Committee on Environment and Public Works pointed out that his (and Dr. Roy Spencer's) data indicated a decrease in global temperature. Before the same committe in 2001, he stated it was at an increase that was "a rate less than a third that observed at the surface" at 0.045 C/decade and it showed "remarkable consistency between independent measurements [by radiosonde] of these upper air temperatures". In 2003 before the U.S. House Committee on Resources he stated his data was "less than half of the warming observed at the surface." In 2004 his published results showed a 0.08 C/decade increase. A new error in his interpretation of the data found in 2005 has now increased his results by 60% in only a year to 0.13 C/decade but he still claims "all radiosonde comparisons have been rerun and the agreement is still exceptionally good" [5] as was claimed in 2001 when his results were 1/3 as high as now.

In new global warming special, Fox News interviews scientists with industry ties, records of misinformation

Fox News employs Executive Director of TASSC, Steve Milloy.

No reputable and law-abiding organization will have any TASSC fraudster on their payroll, or quote them, or give them a platform. Christy's affiliation with organizations employing TASSC fraudsters is beyond accidental coincidence.

  • --- CEI-Registered website sitemap has two links that go off-site to TASSC-Ally Fred Seitz's old lair at George C. Marshall Institute: Brief Synopsis of the Global Warming Issue, and Guide to Global Warming - Questions and Answers on Climate Change. The pretends that "Consumer Alert" still exists, but the link is a dead parked page. Further down the page "National Consumer Coalition" link leads to the same dead parked page. They are not even trying to keep up appearances of all their phoney front operations any more. They do have a link to their roots as tobacco fraudsters from the Good Old Days, in The Smoker's Club website, with Competitive Enterprise Institute clearly on the bottom of the page. Who knows how many more fly-by-night websites they have out there posing as citizen's groups and grassroots coalitions?
