Antarctic ice is greatest since the last cooling cycle which happened to be the 1960-1980 cycle and so the global warmists have declared that The Planet Just Had Its Warmest September On Record, Continuing Hot Streak. And which continent had the most ‘warming’? Why, Antarctica! And Canada and more than half of North America which had a frigid winter that was much longer than usual and a very cool spring and summer, was ‘warmer than averge’ which is pure insanity.
The entire NASA map is insane. The above map was done by computer, not by obvious observation and careful tracking of temperature because the computer program is designed to homogenize temperatures from cities to expand this to 1,200 miles beyond the cities.
Facts like the length of time the Great Lakes was frozen, for example, are ignored by the California based NASA global warming crew. It WAS hot in California but this was probably the only place on earth seeing ‘heating’.
The place that NASA thought was heating up greatly was mainly Antarctica which saw record cold this last year. There are very, very, very few temperature stations in Antarctica, only one of which is in the center, the others being on the perimeter. This bogus map shows the entire continent as ludicrously warming when it is obviously not doing that. Nothing is melting there. Below is a screen shot of other Huffington Post silly weather stories:
First off, a number of ‘scientists’ disagree that California is warming due to ‘climate change’ because…climate changes all the time and California has had identical droughts like clockwork, frequently over the last 10,000 years. It has nothing to do with CO2 levels or it would have not happened during the last 1,000 years which had low CO2 levels compared to say, 2,000 BC.
The craziest story is about how we will see coastal flooding due to Antarctica freezing to an extraordinary degree. I scratch my head on this one. Both the Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets are growing rapidly as the planet begins a typical 30 year cooling cycle. The NASA map pretending it is super warm carefully cherry picks the previous cooling cycle in its entirety and compares it to the beginning of the present cooling cycle so it looks as if it is heating up when it is cooling.
An honest NASA map and NASA is no longer honest about anything anymore which is why our space program is falling apart, too, would compare a map showing COOLING from 1960-1970 to today’s cooling cycle. By including the coldest part of the cooling cycle while including in the data for today’s map, the heating cycle’s complete transit so that warm temperatures of 1990-2000 are included, thus hiding the truth about this cooling cycle beginning.
Anyone who lives in the freezing cold parts of the country know that last year could not possibly be the warmest ever, that is insanity. Doctored Data, Not U.S. Temperatures, Set a Record This Year
Raw temperature data show that U.S. temperatures were significantly warmer during the 1930s than they are today. In fact, raw temperature data show an 80-year cooling trend. NOAA is only able to claim that we are experiencing the hottest temperatures on record by doctoring the raw temperature data.
Doctoring real-world temperature data is as much a part of the alarmist playbook as is calling skeptical scientists at Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, MIT, NASA, NOAA, etc., “anti-science.” Faced with the embarrassing fact that real-world temperature readings don’t show any U.S. warming during the past 80 years, the alarmists who oversee the collection and reporting of the data simply erase the actual readings and substitute their own desired readings in their place. If this shocks you, you are not alone.
The bureaucracy at NOAA and NASA who report the U.S. temperature data undertake what they term “correcting” the raw data. These corrections are not just one-time affairs, either. As time goes by, older temperature readings are systematically and repeatedly made cooler, and then cooler still, and then cooler still, while more recent temperature readings are made warmer, and then warmer still, and then warmer still.
Science blogger Steven Goddard at Real Science has posted temperature comparison charts (available here) showing just how dramatically the NOAA and NASA bureaucrats have doctored the U.S. temperature data during the past several decades. As the before-and-after temperature charts show, government bureaucrats with power and funding at stake have turned a striking long-term temperature decline (as revealed by the real-world data), into a striking long-term temperature increase.
One of the saddest part of this campaign of deception is: the fact that many temperature stations have been gradually surrounded by asphalt and city heat islands and instead of lowering the heat readings today to reflect this fact, NASA and NOAA do the exact opposite.
They ‘cool down’ past temperatures so that the hot 1930-40 cycle vanishes and becomes colder than usual! By being dishonest about past temperatures, they can then gleefully make maps and statements that it is ‘hottest ever!’ when it was much hotter and drier in the past.
All over the planet last year were reports of severe cold records being shattered and it even snowed in Egypt which is amazingly unusual. Examples this early winter also abound. Heavy snow in Kyrgyzstan – Four people frozen to death, Snowfall warning for Northwest Territories, Rare snow in the Urals hits crop production, New-All time Record!! North America Sept Snow Cover Highest Ever in 45 years of Data, Kansas – Earliest frost on record – Growing season now third shortest on recordand NASA Stumped – Deep oceans have not warmed since at least 2005 which kind of wrecked NASA’s previous bellowing that all the heat we are supposed to be seeing is hidden at the bottom of the oceans.
Using Asphalt To Influence Politics In Canberra | Real Science is today’s example of temperature rigging by ‘climatologists’:
The BOM thermometer at Canberra Airport is cleverly located adjacent to a huge parking lot, and showed 2013 as the hottest year ever. That thermometer shows Canberra warming at 3.3°C/century since 1996
Satellite photos show that the temperature gage today is situated right next to a huge asphalt parking lot whereas data from the same thermometer in the past came from open countryside with no parking lots within a ten mile radius. So comparing temperatures from 1930 to today gives a false reading of it being warmer today.
The satellite data of the same area from the last ten years shows clearly that it has cooled, not heated up. Instead of examining why the data diverges so badly, NASA simply doctored previous data to negate information from satellites showing the cooling.
They are rewarded with more money for ‘climate studies’ now that they have surrendered leadership in space to other countries. Because we have punitive ‘global warming’ taxes on everything, governments love this and are using these taxes to fund wars and other activities, so they have to keep up the fiction that the planet is going to roast to death or there will be taxpayer revolts.
United States is expected to overtake Saudi Arabia this week and become world’s biggest liquid petroleum producer thanks to fracking. The price of fossil fuels continue to drop. And anti-global warmists continue to fly and drive all over the planet with impunity and live in palaces while lecturing us all about consuming fossil fuels.
Meanwhile, yes, the Hubbert Oil Peak still looms in the future and yes, we won’t be able to use fossil fuels forever. That is impossible which is why we have to figure out how to create other forms of energy eventually. But not because of global warming but because the planet isn’t a ball of fossil fuels. It does have considerable internal energy (volcanoes show this most clearly). And we still have the sun, too.
NASA doesn’t talk about tapping solar energy 24 hours a day via satellite transmission to the earth. This is the real future. There are people pushing for work on this but are being ignored.
