The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data.
This time, that data concerns the recent record-breaking cold across the northeastern U.S. which NOAA is trying to erase from history.Basically, NOAA has changed the record cold that the Northeast suffered into something, well, normal. Rather than the coldest winter on record (remember, cold record were set all over the Northeast), this was kind of in the middle of the pack.
If you believe NOAA’s charts, there was nothing particularly unusual about this winter’s cold weather which caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.
I saw this and my reaction was what, again?
We're told that it's the hottest year ever and yet the record temperatures for most (39) States were set over 50 years ago.
Peer reviewed scientific articles say that NOAA's temperature record does not reflect reality.
The National Academy of Science is worried about the quality of the temperature data.
Government data used for Paris Climate Accords is wildly inaccurate.
This, by the way, is where all the science action is: how trustworthy is the historical record (specifically, has it been modified beyond all resemblance to reality)? I've been posting about this for going on 10 years now, and so the conclusion that I've reached is that modifying data by 50% or more is considered business as usual among climate scientists. I see no reason to change any of this from that post:
At this point, climate science in general and Anthropogenic Global Warming in particular are shattered. Nothing in the peer-reviewed journals can be trusted. Any climate data that is not available to John Q Public needs to be dismissed out of hand. Any adjustment process that is not 100% transparent - fully documented procedures, as well as adjustments published on a station-by-station basis, with a justification for each change - needs to be dismissed out of hand.Think about that - this is considered normal by this branch of science. There's a reason that there is a tag for posts here called "Junk Science".
