The global warming hoax which began in the late 1980s continues to unravel faster than Barack Obama’s credibility. At a joint press conference officials of NOAA and NASA released data showing there has been no warming of earth during the last 16 years, since 1997. Doesn’t mean they still aren’t trying to cook the books on anthropogenic global warming.
The AGW con artists are still claiming to have found a 1° C temperature rise over the past 125 years. Steve Goddard of Real Science Blog has found that the U.S. Historical Climatology Network (USHCN) has adjusted pre-2000 temperatures downward thus creating data that show the increase over that period. This could be due to bug in the computer software, but given the disingenuous dissembling of the AGW alarmists for years now, that would be too charitable a conclusion without more proof.
“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.”
So, another “hockey stick.” Cute. From “hide the decline” to “hide the stasis.”
Bob Livingston at Personal Liberty Digest:
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.
Instead of AGW, the earth may be heading for a period of global cooling that has nothing whatever to do with human activity:
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 BBCthey are baffled because they didn’t expect sun activity to be this low.
Obama claimed recently 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.” But, as we all now know, he lies.
