Check out the latest from the crooks at NOAA
Instead of talking about the return to just below the post-1979 mean, they spin an event from last summer.
But it is much worse than it seems. NOAA claims that the satellite record began in 1979, but IPCC FAR and SAR said that NOAA has satellite data back to 1973 – when extent was much lower than 1979.
These dishonest government agencies are a cancer on our nation.
Successful technology firms hire people to find things wrong with their product. These individuals are rewarded for finding things that are wrong, and fired for not finding them. Verification people have completely different motivations and a different set of objectives from developers.
By contrast, academic research is a disaster, because they rely on pal-review. Everyone has basically the same objectives, and rely on the same sources of income. This guarantees that no serious problem will ever be found which could threaten the broad base of funding.
When I hear people using the terms “peer-review” and “climate science” in the same sentence, I feel like busting out laughing. It is a joke.
As of 1995, neither NOAA radiosonde nor NASA satellites showed any post 1958 warming. Graph below is from the 1995 IPCC report.
Since 1996, there has also been no global warming.

Apparently all global warming occurred during 1995.
In 1922, the poles and glaciers were rapidly melting – and people were happy about it.
The ice fringes of both poles are retreating. Even during the comparatively short space of time that the Antarctic has been visited by man the, ice has retired some 40 miles. So let us cheer up.

Since the end of October, Arctic sea ice extent has been at a 10 year high almost every day.

Those “illegitimate skeptics” who predicted this, were called “breathtakingly ignorant” by Mark Serreze.
It is about time a legitimate skeptic showed up here.
Twilight Zone music playing in the background.
