NASA Declares Global Warming an Elaborate "Hoax"

NASA scientists today reported that global climate change is an elaborate "hoax" perpetuated on the world by scientists seeking to get out of the office to attend conferences.

Senior climate administrator, I.M. Gold said, "It is clear from all of the data that the scientists involved with global climate change research were just trying to attend conferences and stay at hotels with fancy breakfast buffets and free wireless internet." 

Several scientists were put on administrative leave pending an investigation.

A spokesman from the energy industry had very little comment except to say, "Told you so."

A review of satellite images demonstrated that the scientists used ball point pens to block out areas of sea ice and glaciers on photographs of the arctic and northern latitudes.  Glaciers are actually expanding and have been seen in the Porcupine Mountains of Wisconsin and in the Catskills of New York. 

The harbor master of Baltimore stated, "I've been wondering what they've been talking about with all that global warming crap.  Chesapeake Bay has been iced in for the last five years."
