The fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

New data shows that the “vanishing” of polar ice is not the result of runaway global warming

When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.

Two weeks ago, under the headline “How we are being tricked by flawed data on global warming”, I wrote about Paul Homewood, who, on his Notalotofpeopleknowthat blog, had checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the temperatures that had originally been recorded. In each instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming.

This was only the latest of many examples of a practice long recognised by expert observers around the world – one that raises an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.

Following my last article, Homewood checked a swathe of other South American weather stations around the original three. In each case he found the same suspicious one-way “adjustments”. First these were made by the US government’s Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN). They were then amplified by two of the main official surface records, the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) and the National Climate Data Center (NCDC), which use the warming trends to estimate temperatures across the vast regions of the Earth where no measurements are taken. Yet these are the very records on which scientists and politicians rely for their belief in “global warming”.

Homewood has now turned his attention to the weather stations across much of the Arctic, between Canada (51 degrees W) and the heart of Siberia (87 degrees E). Again, in nearly every case, the same one-way adjustments have been made, to show warming up to 1 degree C or more higher than was indicated by the data that was actually recorded. This has surprised no one more than Traust Jonsson, who was long in charge of climate research for the Iceland met office (and with whom Homewood has been in touch). Jonsson was amazed to see how the new version completely “disappears” Iceland’s “sea ice years” around 1970, when a period of extreme cooling almost devastated his country’s economy.
One of the first examples of these “adjustments” was exposed in 2007 by the statistician Steve McIntyre, when he discovered a paper published in 1987 by James Hansen, the scientist (later turned fanatical climate activist) who for many years ran Giss. Hansen’s original graph showed temperatures in the Arctic as having been much higher around 1940 than at any time since. But as Homewood reveals in his blog post, “Temperature adjustments transform Arctic history”, Giss has turned this upside down. Arctic temperatures from that time have been lowered so much that that they are now dwarfed by those of the past 20 years.

Homewood’s interest in the Arctic is partly because the “vanishing” of its polar ice (and the polar bears) has become such a poster-child for those trying to persuade us that we are threatened by runaway warming. But he chose that particular stretch of the Arctic because it is where ice is affected by warmer water brought in by cyclical shifts in a major Atlantic current – this last peaked at just the time 75 years ago when Arctic ice retreated even further than it has done recently. The ice-melt is not caused by rising global temperatures at all.
Of much more serious significance, however, is the way this wholesale manipulation of the official temperature record – for reasons GHCN and Giss have never plausibly explained – has become the real elephant in the room of the greatest and most costly scare the world has known. This really does begin to look like one of the greatest scientific scandals of all time.

I guess we should be grateful for some things, like the warming hoax, err, losing steam. So many questions about "climate change". What if warming, even anthro warming, is real, but is actually helping stave off an ice age? What if anthro warming is real but effects nowhere near the popular worst-case scenarios?

People like to live near oceans & rivers & constantly deal with floods, maintenance etc. & even bigger buildings only last so long anyway. Seems easier & cheaper to just gradually move things back away from the damper spots rather than change the whole global economy.

But of course, only deluded hippies believe in the climate change nonsense. & very few of them support nuke power which makes sense anyway.

More likely that their climate control science doesn't work (too many jews at the helm), and the next ice age is impending.  God > Man.

Rather bizarre how Jew Climate admits shorter-term (> 1 month) predictions are not valid but claim that long-term predictions are "settled science". Sheer Chutzpah. We've only been taking extensive measurements since mass industrialization began anyway. Hard to figure out the motive for the climate change crap. Almost as if the Elders sat around working up the most absurd scam they could think of, just to see if they could make it fly.

If there is any change in climate it's climate shift due to Earths axis moving, some places get colder , other places get warmer.

you can gan get evidence for both theories ( warming/cooling ) by measuring only at specific spots.


Saving the planet from warming up by deploying windmills is a joke, wind cools, thus to take energy out of the wind means less wind = less cooling. So if anything is causing global warming it's windmills.

Besides, they ignore deep sea ocean temps collected by the Navy, which on average have remained unchanged over decades.

You also have efforts by competing programs to manipulate weather for regional benefit, which in the end would also obviously be a wash (despite short-term chaos).

In the Beverly Hillbillies Jethro got the idea to fight smog by putting huge exhaust fans in the LA mountains. Makes about as much sense as Climate Change & Green Energy theories. Windmill might make sense for folks going off the grid but for mass production they're dumb. BTW I realize that in all the JMSM hoopla about lower oil/gas costs, they forget to shed crocodile tears for wind/solar manufacturers/installers who must be hurting bigtime now.

Even before the price drop solar adopted by very few homeowners, even in sunbelt. Surprising really since in many areas of US installing roof panels pays off in a few years. I guess many of the folks who have money to install either not sure how long they'll keep current house or else don't want the hassle of dealing with crappy US builders.
