The lie that is anthropogenic global warming continues to unravel as fast President Barack Obama’s credibility.
In a joint press conference, NOAA and NASA released data showing that statistically there has been no increase in temperatures since 1997. In fact, statistically speaking there has been no significant trend whatever during this period. The annual temperatures fall within the error bars of .1 C.
Steven Goddard at the Real Science blog has been digging into data from the U.S. Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) and has found discrepancies in the data that AGW charlatans claim show a continuous rise in temperatures.
In the first version (V1) of USHCN’s Contiguous Temperature chart covering the past 125 years, they adjusted recent temperatures upward and made little adjustment to older temperatures. But when they switched to a second version of the chart (V2), they adjusted older temperatures downward and left temperatures since 2000 intact. This adjustment created a jump of more than 1 degree downward for all years prior to 2000. Goddard believes a software bug is partially to blame and plans to make a Freedom of Information Act request for the code.
“Bottom line is there is clearly a huge error in the USHCN adjustments which has added a non-existent one degree hockey stick warming to the official US temperature record, and I now know just where to look for it in their code,” Goddard writes. “NOAA made a big deal about 2012 blowing away all temperature records, but the temperature they reported is the result of a huge error. This affects all NOAA and NASA US temperature graphs, and is part of the cause of this famous shift.”
When compensation is made for the adjustments, there is actually a decline in U.S. daily temperature of about three-fourths of 1 degree over the past 100 years, as opposed to the increase of almost 1 degree the jiggled numbers show.
Scientists are saying the sun has fallen asleep. Its activity is dropping to levels not seen since the 17th century, a time known as the Maunder Minimum. It was called a mini ice age and Englanders saw the Thames River freeze over with ice a foot thick. Scientists told the BBC they are baffled because they didn’t expect sun activity to be this low.
Despite Obama’s repeated claims that “the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even 10 years ago” and “the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago,” temperatures are stable. No AGW promoting climate model anticipated this.
Maurice Strong, longtime Canadian environmentalist and secretary general of the first global Earth Summit, stood beside Al Gore and proclaimed in 2012: “China is outpacing Canada in determination to tackle climate change and rein in greenhouse gas emissions.” He now advises the Chinese government on climate issues and serves as an active honorary professor at Peking University.
U.N. Climate Chief Christiana Figueres said recently that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. The Daily Caller reported: “Communist China, she says, is the best model.”
Last week, the U.K.’s Daily Mail published an astonishing photograph. Like a population living in a dystopian future, Chinese people, wearing face masks, sauntered out of their homes into smog so dense the sun couldn’t penetrate. To see the sunrise, they gazed at a smog-shrouded huge digital TV screen beaming to them a virtual sunrise.
