The Darkening Of Science

Check out the latest BS from the team

18 September 2014

a darkening of the Greenland ice sheet could impact upon the entire world, as the hastening trend reduces the Arctic’s ability to reflect sunlight and increases global warming.

The world’s leading expert on the ice that covers the huge expanse of Greenland has told The Independent that he was “stunned” to see how much darker it has become in the past year – warning it could start a hugely damaging “cascading feedback loop” of the area becoming blacker as less and less light is reflected.

Greenland’s dark snow may start global warming ‘feedback loop’ – Environment – The Independent

Every summer, the snow along a 50 mile strip of western Greenland turns black from soot; glacial grinding and dust. I have seen this from the air since at least 1998, and commented about it several times on the blog. But then new snow falls. The image below is what Greenland looked like yesterday. Zinc oxide white.

Rule #1

When making fake data, always make sure it is consistently fake.

Gavin’s GISS data shows August 2011 at 0.69 anomaly, and August 2014 as 0.70 anomaly

Unfortunately for him, his maps show 2011 as 0.70 and 2014 as 0.68.

Gavin also might have wanted to cross check with some other people at NASA who showed August as second coldest of the last decade.

August Was Coldest In Five Years, Second Coldest In Ten Years

Contrary to the spectacular “hottest August ever” lies being propagated by NASA GISS and NOAA ahead of Obama’s climate conference – August was the coldest in five years and the second coldest in 10 years, according to far more accurate NASA satellite data.

US Government Agencies Just Can’t Stop Lying

For the ocean, the August global sea surface temperature was 0.65°C (1.17°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.4°F). This record high departure from average not only beats the previous August record set in 2005 by 0.08°C (0.14°F), but also beats the previous all-time record set just two months ago in June 2014 by 0.03°C (0.05°F).

Complete bullshit. The oceans were much warmer in August 1998.

More of the southern oceans were below normal than were above normal in August, 2014.

Hottest August Ever Update

Gavin says we are experiencing record heat due to very warm polar temperatures, which explains why global sea ice area is the highest since 1997, above normal and higher than 30 years ago.

Following Up With The World’s Greatest Scientist

When Hansen predicted 5 degrees warming in the US by 2020, what he meant was that 75% of the US would be below normal temperature by 2014.

Michigan September Nighttime Temperatures Plummeting Since The 1890s

Prior to 1950, freezing temperatures in Michigan during the first half of September were rare. Now they happen all the time.
