It seems like eons ago since the last time I posted anything regarding our climate.  And, what I’m about to post isn’t going to be news to many of the readers here.  Still, as I’m now cross-posting to my Facebook page, sort of, I may reach more readers and cause more people to know the absolute charade “climate science” has become. 

Today, Breitbart has this ….. my bold …..

H. Sterling Burnett: Climategate Redux! NOAA Scientists Fudge, Lose Data

To paraphrase the immortal words of Britney Spears, “Oops, climate scientists did it again!”

The award-winning scientist responsible for creating, collecting, and maintaining the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) data archive, John Bates, recently disclosed leading NOAA’s climate scientists violated the agency’s rules, rushing to publication data which had yet to be tested and confirmed in order to influence the outcome of the Paris climate negotiations in 2015.

In a second breach of agency protocol, the scientists involved, led by Tom Karl, failed to properly archive and store their datasets for testing and public disclosure.

Subsequently, some of the original datasets were lost when the computer used to process the data suffered a complete failure.

Karl, et al.’s 2015 “pause busting” research purported to show, contrary to every temperature dataset in existence at the time, Earth had not experienced an 18-year pause in rising temperatures, claiming instead everyone else’s data had been wrong and temperatures had continued to rise at an alarming rate right along with carbon-dioxide levels. As Bates put it, Karl’s team put their “thumb on the scale” to produce the results they wanted.

Much of the climate science community became suspicious of Karl’s claims over the months after the study was released, when it was discovered in the words of David Rose in the Daily Mail, “[Karl, et al.] took reliable readings from buoys but then ‘adjusted’ them upwards – using readings from seawater intakes on ships that act as weather stations … even though readings from the ships have long been known to be too hot.” As a result, the ocean temperature dataset used by Karl exaggerated the warming.

When you take good data and mix it with bad data and then average it, you no more produce reliable results than adding muddy river water to purified bottle water produces safe drinking water.

Karl’s actions show climate scientists wedded to the theory humans are causing catastrophic climate change learned nothing from the Climategate scandal of 2009. In Climategate, hacked e-mail exchanges between prominent climate scientists advising world leaders on climate policy exposed the scientists behaving badly.

The scientists involved used a “trick” to remove inconvenient data from their datasets to “hide the decline,” in a critical set of proxy temperatures. In addition, the e-mails showed they collaborated to persecute and have fired an editor of a prominent climate science journal who allowed articles questioning the extent of humanity’s role in global warming to be published.

The e-mails also showed the scientists actively sought to avoid releasing their taxpayer-funded data to other researchers and government bodies with oversight responsibility for testing and confirmation.

In the aftermath of the Climategate scandal, in order to ensure scientific integrity and regain the public’s trust, scientific bodies called on scientists to allow access to their raw data, assumptions, methodologies, and software and to promptly and completely respond to all Freedom of Information Act and government requests for information.

Karl and his team not only violated NOAA’s own protocols, they also ignored all the suggestions made by the scientific community to improve transparency and accountability for research. When the U.S. House of Representatives’ House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, the committee with oversight over federally funded research, requested and eventually subpoenaed NOAA’s documentation for its pause-busting claims, NOAA refused to turn over all the materials requested, citing concerns about confidentiality and the integrity of the scientific process. New investigations are being launched into NOAA’s research in light of Bates’ disclosures.

Ahh, good times, good times!!!!  This is yet another example of why I’ve totally lost interest in the climate debate.  None of the data is real.  The people in charge of collecting, storing, and providing the data either eliminate the data which contradicts their world view, or they simply manipulate it to where it isn’t even close to reality. 

To date, none of the temperature gathering institutions can demonstrate any veracity towards their stated notions on a “global temperature”.  From NOAA, to GISS, to HADCrut, none of them can show any accuracy in determining a “global temp”.  Even the satellite people, UAH, and RSS can’t demonstrate any accuracy.  It’s all farcical. 

More importantly, none of them can show a proper historical context and relationship to today’s readings towards any notion of a global time in our history.  It simply cannot be done.  It wasn’t until the mid-2000s that we even got some actual temp readings from our oceans of any relevant coverage.  This earth’s surface is mostly water, and we are just now starting to get actual ocean surface temp readings with any sort of distribution and coverage.  WTF are we talking about “global warming” when there is no context to an actual global temperature of our past?  It’s all sophistry, based upon a hypothetical notion, taken as fact by a bunch of lunatics.  Anyone doubting this are free to peruse my archived posts.  At least in my mind, I’ve adequately demonstrated what I’ve just commented above.  When the historical context is simplified and boiled down to its base, this is the only conclusion a rational person can have. 

There are too many problems to have any degree of precision or even accuracy to overcome. 

Land temperatures …….. well, golly, we don’t have the same temp stations as we did say 70 years ago.  Sure, we have some which are the same, but, we have many which are not.  Even the thermometers are not the same, and they don’t measure temperature the same.  But, even if they did, it wouldn’t be right because the land area surrounding the thermometers are not the same.  Of course, all of this is known, but, the lunatics have convinced themselves and many other people that they can create a formula which makes allowances for such incongruences.  But, you can’t, because the incongruences are not the same.  It’s supreme idiocy and hubris to believe one can do so.  

What?  Because a tree ring looked one way and an actual thermometer looks differently today we can be sure we have “global warming”?  Are we f’n serious?!?!?!?!?!?!?!  Get real.  Oh, wait!!!!  I know!!!!!!  We have sediment!!!!  Which, of course, in no way presents any sort of global coverage, but, ….. hey!!!  We can average a couple of centuries and know the last 2 years were the hottest evuh!!!!!  What idiot believes that?

But, then, we still don’t have good thermometer coverage in 3 continents of the world, so, there’s that.  And, again, we have no good historical reference for most of our surface temps because, well, ……. oceans!!!!!!!  What sort of stupid thinks 10% of something means 100% of the same something is trending in the same manner of the 10%, especially with something as dynamic as temperature?

But, that brings me to the satellite temps.  They actually have the same problem, except more acutely, as one of the land temps.  That is to say, their measuring devices are not the same.  The way they interpret their measuring devices are not the same.  They continually revise their interpretations, meaning, what we’ve taken for fact from the satellites today, will be done away with tomorrow, yet, they’ve somehow managed to make people believe they can make apples to apples comparisons with the satellite readings we have today with the satellite readings we had 35 years ago.  Sure you can, buddy, sure.  Now, just slip into this nice white jacket with the funny sleeves and everything will be okay.  No, no, the belts make the outfit!!!!  Don’t worry about the belts!!!! 

It’s a farce.  It’s always been a farce.  Happily, I believe because of Trump’s election the farce will become more and more well known.  Indeed, this story about NOAA has reached a much larger audience than the Climate-gate emails ever did.  I believe very soon most people will come to regard the climate lunatics in the same way they now regard the “doomsday clock” “scientists”.

    The fraud squad caught with their nickers down, It’s just too beautiful!

  2. dirkhblog says:

    Unfortunately the billion Dollar fraud machine called renewables subsidies is running at a faster speed than ever. I’m not calling it trillion because I am not sure the annual fraud exceeds a trillion worldwide. In Germany it was 32 billion EUR alone last year, about the same in USD.

    So we have entrenched oligarchs fighting for the continuation of their junket. This alone explains a lot of the war against Trump. That includes the Vatican who makes money hand over fist being the biggest land owner e g in Spain, earning rent from the wind turbines. Yes, broke Spain just like broke Portugal has massive amounts of wind turbines and subsidies for them.

    • suyts says:

      I think, maybe, some of that money will cease pretty soon. Well, some of it already has. But, I believe more will soon stop. And, yes, that’s why there are some who are unnaturally antagonistic towards Trump.

  3. TG says:

    OT – More good news the leftist elite are really gonna cry in their entertainment soup, the half billion dollar leftist propaganda programming is getting the royal drain the swamp treatment.

    President-elect Donald Trump intends to eliminate the National Endowment For The Arts and the National Endowment For The Humanities, and privatize the Corporation For Public Broadcasting, the government entity that partially funds both NPR and PBS.

    This is music to my ears!!!!!

  4. Lars P. says:

    Great you found time to post on the climate swamp that really needs some draining. Hopefully we will see some consequences.
    There have been some posts at WUWT too referring GISS.

    OT, found a nice photo referring feminism & hypocrisy. This is a canadian feminist. Reminds me of the swedish feminist that visited Iran in a delegation not long ago:

    This is the one thing I have never understood … and in my opinion should be the main sticking point.
    Forget accurate temperature measurements….and everything else.

    They run a algorithm every time they enter new temp data.
    They say any adjustments to the new data… more accurate than the old data. the algorithm retroactively changes the old data….every time they enter new data.

    And yet every thing published about global warming is based on the temp history today.
    …which will be entirely different tomorrow

    We will never know what the temp is today…..because in the future it’s constantly changing

    oddest thing about it all….the models reflect all of that past adjusting
    and inflate global warming at exactly the same rate as all the adjustments

    More from Sweden with the translation of Peter Springare’s facebook post ( a policeman speaking the truth in a moment of desperation):

    Btw Peter (the author not the policeman 😉 ) says he has been locked out from twitter, here his comment on youtube:

    “Thanks for all the views, if you like this video please subscribe, that encourages me to continue making more videos. Also, if you come from twitter, i am currently lokced out. There has been several things happening in Sweden the last day which i haven’t been able to report on because of this.”

    James, I only partly agree with you. As you will remember, I downloaded the Death Valley temperatures back in about 2003. That downloaded dataset does not match their current graphs.

    However, (thanks to a comment by Anthony on WUWT), I’ve been downloading a few of the original B-91 forms for Death Valley. I wanted to check them against my original dataset. The only problem is that these are daily min-max temps, and my original dataset was annual averaged temps. (Plus you have to hand enter all the temps from the form images.) I found another NOAA site where you can download the original daily min-max temps. It took about a week or so to get all of the data, and it looks like the original stuff. I checked some of the values against the B-91s, and they match. (Unfortunately, the online B-91s only go back to April 1961.) I also averaged these values (in the old way), and it seems to match my original dataset values.

    The real problem is that they don’t show you the original data, but their modified stuff. That modified stuff is easier to access, and those are the graphs they show. That’s where I agree with you.

    …but it was ok when Obambi banned FOX

    The New York Times, Politico, Buzzfeed & Others Are Stunned After Trump Admin’s News ‘Ban’

    Out: NYT, Politico, BBC, LA Times, Buzzfeed, The Hill, Daily Mail, New York Daily News, and most of the foreign press….

    …screaming butt hurt heard around the world…..lying pieces of crap

    Bottom line, they got caught in Climate gate, nothing happened to them, so they continued to carry on as per norm! Right?

  10. Me says:

    Hey, look! Using it to talk business, like the box seats at other sporting events????? Imagine that?????

  11. Me says:

    Anyway, bottom line is you believe what you believe! When money is involved there are those that will do everything to make you believe, and when there is power involved there are those what want you to believe in what they believe. And when there is prestige involved there are those what want you to believe in what they believe! And then there is freedom that cost you nothing but to believe in the country you wish to protect! It is freedom that needs protection, or nothing else matters. And borders and walls and laws and culture and identity is what it means! Or all is lost! That is the Bottom line!

    • Me says:

      Here is another thing, and you know it is coming, The Fed will increase the interest rates, Just in time to make someone look bad? Just another control measure! The gold standard wouldn’t hold up! There isn’t enough gold out there to run anything anymore for more than a month. That is reality and you all know it! So if the fed is going to try and control the Government then it is time the people control the Fed and really take control and not let a title control them. After all it is imaginary money that is paying to control on interest! If the Government is responsible for that then why do the government need a middleman to finance their control?

      • Me says:

        Answer is they don’t, It is all debt based on income that they don’t want to payout! And when they can’t get the work done they have to make promises and take them back, after it isn’t paying off for them anymore! So the bottom line for those is, they better make good or they lose all those that make good and be like all those they pissed on! So take care of yours and they will take care of you!

      • DirkH says:

        “There isn’t enough gold out there to run anything anymore for more than a month. That is reality and you all know it!”

        There is always the same limited amount of Gold (Well it does grow with half a percent a year due to mining).
        You can ALWAYS run the world economy on a Gold standard. It is only the price that is in question.
        That’s what *I*’m banking on and it’s currently working just fine. Dollar and Euro and all the even weaker currencies continue their perpetual fall against Gold.
        Measured in Gold, currencies *AND* goods and services LOSE in value all the time, as currencies as well as goods and services are produced in ever greater amount – the former with the printing press / debt+money creation; the latter due to rising industrial productivity.
        The repricing of Gold is not finished by any means.

        • Me says:

          Well when the shiny thangs like gold and diamonds wears off like is for those that promote and toot their own horns to impress and dis-guard real thangs that actually does something and is plentiful! If SHTF GOOD LUCK!

        • DirkH says:

          Gold doesn’t “wear off”. That’s why it’s the prime monetary metal.

        • Me says:

          I hope it doesn’t come to that time, that if someone likes the gold your are using will take that away from you with lead! Ya know if the unthinkable happens that you all claim gold will be worth something! Water and food will be worth something, try eating your gold!

        • Me says:

          Just like paper money can be worthless so can everything else when there are shortages of necessities!

    Like I predicted…the dams have no choice now but to move even further left
    …..exactly why they lost the election

  13. Latitude says:

    ” — but the truth is Americans don’t want to do this work,”

    I’m sick and tired of seeing this repeated….there’s not one word of truth in it.

    These farm workers run a monopoly…if they are Mexican, they will run off any other nationality…same with Guatemalans and Hondurans. It’s not that Americans don’t want to do it…’s the other nationalities that won’t let them do it.

    Heh, had to share this – crazy what nature can do:

    Just like Mikey Mann, they cannot allow others to see the fraud. So the dog eats the homework
