As Ronald Reagan would famously say, “There they go again.”
The news is full of 2016 being the “hottest” year on record. Of course. All that is required is to change a little number here… change a little number there.
I don’t know about you but I was freezing in December. January is worse. I could really go for little global warming today!
Let’s look at some facts.
[Modified but largely copied from: 100% Of US Warming Is Due To NOAA Data Tampering, by Tony Heller]
The first problem with the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA) analysis is that the US had very little hot weather in 2016. The percentage of hot days was below average, and ranked 80th since 1895. Only 4.4% of days were over 95°F, compared with the long-term average of 4.9%. Global warming alarmists are conflating mild temperatures with hot ones.
NOAA shows that US temperatures rose 1.5°F since the 19th century. (I mean seriously, that’s in Fahrenheit degrees, not even Celsius. That means temperatures rose an average of 0.01 degrees Fahrenheit per year. No wonder us mortal humans can’t notice a difference. We need NOAA to help us.)
We seem to up to our eyeballs in fake news these days. NOAA is going for the “fake news Pulitzer Prize.” The NOAA graph is fake data. Their data is altered. If one instead looks at NOAA’s RAW DATA it shows no warming over the past century. If one analyzes the raw data below one can see that the big push by global warming alarmists was based on the run up of temperatures from 1980 to 1995. Prior to 1980, however, the alarmists were warning of an Ice Age because of the fall in temperatures from 1955 to 1980. And in measured raw data, the 1930s remain “the hottest” – preceding the time when mankind began to use large amounts of fossil fuels. And in terms of dramatic run ups, the period from 1915 to 1930 was the most impressive.
So how is it and why were their adjustments made to the “final reported temperatures?” First, and importantly, the “adjustments” correlate almost perfectly with atmospheric CO2. NOAA is adjusting the data to match global warming theory. This is known as PBEM (Policy Based Evidence Making.)
Isn’t that amazing.
In 2016, more than 42% of their monthly station data was missing, so they simply made it up. This is easy to identify because they mark fabricated temperatures with an “E” in their database. Isn’t it amazing that the spike in “interpolated data” corresponds perfectly with when the ecoterrorists started to harp on global warming (and the beginning of “the pause” which could not be allowed to stand).
When confronted by Mr. Heller with claims of fraud, NOAA states: They use gridded data and Heller uses un-gridded data. And they “have to” adjust the data because of Time Of Observation Bias and station moves.
Both claims are easily debunked. The only effect that gridding has is to lower temperatures slightly. The trend of gridded data is almost identical to the trend of un-gridded data.
Now that is a correlation one can wrap one’s brain around.
It is so sad to realize we can’t trust the institutions that are supposed to guide the nation. It’s a tragedy. It is no wonder Americans’ trust for government is at an all time low.

And thanks to CAG for sending this data to me.
