The National Weather Service said that March temperatures in Michigan were 1st-4th coldest, yet NCDC reported them as 5th coldest – due to NCDC data tampering of course.
Never mind that the Great Lakes blew away all records for ice in March, NCDC claims peer review for their data tampering. Perhaps their peers changed the freezing point of water.
For the second year in a row, NCDC adjusted US March temperatures upwards by 1.5 degrees, making for a total adjustment since the 1920s of about 3 degrees.
NCDC has adjusted Michigan March temperatures by a mind-blowing six degrees since 1895, and managed to make March only fifth coldest – ignoring record Great Lakes ice, common sense, and any concept of integrity.
A 1933 flood in China drowned 50,000 people, starved a million, and brought rats, heat, cholera and locusts.
Joe Romm reported today that missing Arctic sea ice caused the cold winter in the East, and the California drought. This stunning new research is worth a closer look. In fact you may need a magnifying glass to find the missing ice, which controls all evil things on the planet.
Climate scientists are blaming the cold weather on Arctic ice loss.
Bombshell: Study Ties Epic California Drought, ‘Frigid East’ To Manmade Climate Change

Natural variability alone cannot explain the extreme weather pattern that has driven both the record-setting California drought and the cooler weather seen in the Midwest and East this winter, a major new study finds.
We’ve reported before that climate scientists had predicted a decade ago that warming-driven Arctic ice loss would lead to worsening drought in California. In particular, they predicted it would lead to a “blocking pattern” that would shift the jet stream (and the rain it could bring) away from the state — in this case a “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge” of high pressure.
A new study in Geophysical Research Letters (subs. req’d) takes the warming link to the California drought to the next level of understanding. It concludes, “there is a traceable anthropogenic warming footprint in the enormous intensity of the anomalous ridge during winter 2013-14, the associated drought and its intensity.”
Other than the facts that Arctic ice extent is almost exactly at the 30 year median, and that the same weather pattern has happened lots of times before – I see no problem with this junk science.
In 1977, a nearly identical pattern set up with warmth in Alaska, drought in California, and cold in Florida. Arctic sea ice was near a peak at the time.
