Climate Change Hoax: NOAA Caught MASSIVELY Manipulating Temperature Readings AGAIN
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught exaggerating ‘global warming’ again by massively manipulating the raw temperature data for the recent record-breaking cold across the northeastern U.S.
According to the NOAA’s charts, there was nothing unusual about this winter’s record breaking cold weather. Yet it caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.
Note NOAA’s January 2018 chart for the Northeast U.S. covering regions that had just experienced record-breaking cold.
But compared to the National Weather Service who wrote at the end of the winter:
The winter of 2013-14 finished as one of the coldest winters in recent memory for New York State. Snowfall across Western and North Central New York was above normal for many areas, and in some locations well above normal. This winter comes on the heels of two previous mild winters, making the cold and snow this winter feel that much harsher.
Temperatures this winter finished below normal every month, and the January through March timeframe finished at least 4 degrees below normal for the two primary climate stations of Western New York (Buffalo and Rochester)…..
Relentless cold continued through the month of January across the region
In other-words, the charts the NOAA used to prove that there is no warming hiatus for 20 years do not match up, even remotely, to reality.
Paul Homewood has discovered, NOAA has been cooking the books. See his article for a full consideration.
The impact of these adjustments is simply staggering. If Jan 2014’s temperatures are reduced back down by 3.3F, they become 14.5F. This would make the month the 9th coldest on record in Central Lakes, ranked between 1940 and 1981. This would certainly correlate with the NWS report, mentioned above, which stated:
The winter of 2013-14 was one of the coldest and snowiest in decades across Western and North Central New York.
NOAA has adjusted past temperatures to look colder than they were and recent temperatures to look warmer than they were.
We’re not talking fractions of a degree, here. The adjustments amount to a whopping 3.1 degrees F. This takes us well beyond the regions of error margins or innocent mistakes. It runs deep into the realm of fiction and political propaganda.
This is not the first time that the NOAA has been caught manipulating the data it puts out to make global warming look like fact.
U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space, and Technology members responded recently to reports about the NOAA 2015 climate change study (“the Karl study”).
In the summer of 2015, NOAA scientists published the Karl study. The study retroactively altered historical climate change data. That resulted in the elimination of a well-known climate phenomenon known as the “climate change hiatus.”
The hiatus was a period between 1998 and 2013 during which the rate of global temperature growth slowed. This fact has always been a thorn in the side of climate change alarmists. It has become very difficult to disprove the slowdown in warming.
This caused a major headache for the global warming hoaxters.
The Karl study refuted the hiatus and rewrote climate change history to claim that warming had in fact been occurring. The committee heard from scientists who raised concerns about the study’s methodologies, readiness, and politicization. In response, the committee conducted oversight and sent NOAA inquiries to investigate the circumstances surrounding the Karl study.
Over the course of the committee’s oversight, NOAA refused to comply with the inquiries, baselessly arguing that Congress is not authorized to request communications from federal scientists. This culminated in the issuance of a congressional subpoena, with which NOAA also failed to comply. During the course of the investigation, the committee heard from whistleblowers who confirmed that, among other flaws in the study, it was rushed for publication to support President Obama’s climate change agenda.
According to Dr. John Bates, the recently retired principal scientist at NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center, the Karl study was used “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.”
Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) stated:
“I thank Dr. John Bates for courageously stepping forward to tell the truth about NOAA’s senior officials playing fast and loose with the data in order to meet a politically predetermined conclusion.
In the summer of 2015, whistleblowers alerted the Committee that the Karl study was rushed to publication before underlying data issues were resolved to help influence public debate about the so-called Clean Power Plan and upcoming Paris climate conference. Since then, the Committee has attempted to obtain information that would shed further light on these allegations, but was obstructed at every turn by the previous administration’s officials. I repeatedly asked, ‘What does NOAA have to hide?’
Continually, we find that the data to prove the man-made global warming hoax has been manipulated.
Continually, Al Gore continues to use the conclusions to prove that the sky is falling. And he just gets richer and richer.
Scam artistry at its finest.
