After falsely claiming that July, 2012 was the hottest month since the beginning of the world (well, 1895, actually – records don’t go beyond that,but neither does the collective memory of the global warmists – NOAA has now conceded that in fact July, 1936 was hotter. This data manipulation has ben going on since NOAA joined in the global warming scam, and the lying is not limited to our government’s “objective scientists”. In fact, the hottest decade since 1895 was the 30s, and the earth has been cooling since then. But that would be an inconvenient truth for the bunkum artists.
“Goddard shows how, in recent years, NOAA’s US Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has been ‘adjusting’ its record by replacing real temperatures with data ‘fabricated’ by computer models,” writes Christopher Booker for the Telegraph.
“The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the Earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data,” Booker writes. “In several posts headed ‘Data tampering at USHCN/GISS,’ Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time.”
“These show that the US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph, nearly half of it based on ‘fabricated’ data, shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than 3 degrees centigrade per century,” Booker adds.
When asked about climate data adjustments by the DCNF back in April, NOAA send there have been “several scientific developments since 1989 and 1999 that have improved the understanding of the U.S. surface temperature record.”
Our current government is attempting to shut down the First World’s economy, transfer wealth in the trillions to the poor of the earth and condemn Americans and western Europeans to a return of the peasant existence of their ancestors, and justifies this reversion to the middle ages by cooking up phony data. So far, a slight majority of Americans has bought into the plan – that’s changing, and exposure of fraudulent science like this will hasten the process; or I hope so – the idea of living in a cave gnawing on sticks and dirt repels me.
UPDATE: Oops! Another disruption of the “settled science”: Gigantic ocean vortexes may force changes to climate models. When the authorities cut off debate, especially scientific debate, it’s a safe bet that they’re up to something.
