“If The Present Refuses To Get Warmer – Then The Past Must Become Cooler”

Great quote from a reader at Climate Audit a few years ago. (I don’t remember who it was.)

The graph above shows how USHCN has progressively cooled the past in Liberty, Texas. They have subtracted 3.4 degrees from measured temperatures in the 1920s and 1930s.

What a brilliant way to create a warming trend! Texas hasn’t warmed, so the past had to get cooler.

    Nice work, if you can get it of course; and better still; keep on getting away with it!

    Read it and weep Mr Madoff, no confined spaces or interesting shower companions in this li’l scam it would appear; and there’s the added big plus of maybe a gong ex Norway too.

    So there will be a double-dip in the past, the little ice age and the 1920s-30s cooling. Terrible style.

    The adjustments noted here seem different from the adjustments shown in the previous thread, which also deals with the Liberty TX temperature trend, but covers mean monthly temperatures.
    Here the largest adjustment is in the 20s and 30s, but there the biggest gap seems to be in the 50s, while the 20s and 30s track very closely..
    Are there multiple adjusted series drifting around?
    I find it difficult to reconcile the large adjustment in the 20s and 30s with the graphed mean monthly data.

    What The GOP House Should Do First To Fix Climate Science: Stop The Fabrication of Bogus Temperatures

      Mike:
      That is one of the places where I figured out the historic temperatures must be fluid. And reading the QA at NASA GISS I learned that their surface temperature records are “Loosely” based on measured temperatures.
      If you record in full degrees then adjust in tenths of a degree you can get wonderful results. I wonder if they do their taxes that way?

      It would be really hard for Chris to dispute such malfeasance. It would be easier if people were just making this stuff up, but who would think of doing such stuff? Adjusting(altering) historical records? And then tell us “all time highs have been reached on unprecedented levels? They are partially correct, this is unprecedented. Did I mention, I hate history revisionists?

    What do all of these studies do with the fact that Texas, 1i the early 1900’s was a major source of oranges and now this crop is an agriculture has-been forgotten in the past. How do they explain away how it was once the largest producer of oranges and grapefruits and now there are only minor specialty farms. No one is investing any money into producing oranges in Texas. They should also look at how the imaginary line for growing oranges has moved from South Carolina to southern Florida over the last 100 years. I remember watching news a report on TV sometime back around 1948 – 53 (can only remember where I was living and not the exact year) about a severe freeze ruining the orange crop in South Carolina and the resultant increase in the prices of oranges. How many oranges come from SC today?

    How do they correlate these fudged temperatures with historical facts?
