NOAA : Using Garbage Data To Prove A Garbage Theory

NOAA claims that Oklahoma during July 2011 was the “hottest month in US history.”

Turns out it wasn’t even the hottest July in Oklahoma history. The raw data shows that both July 1936 and July 1956 were hotter than July 2011.

But it is worse than it seems. August 1936 was also hotter in Oklahoma than July 2011.

NOAA’s hottest month in US history  was actually beaten by at least three months which occurred when CO2 was below 320 ppm. They are using garbage data to prove a garbage theory.

    As a good friend of mine once said, “Orwell’s ‘1984’ was a warning, not a bloody blueprint!”

    Hey Steven, It’s not garbage data it’s outright lieing. They are liars and propagandists , you are being too nice to them.

    Back in July 1936 and July 1956 they we using the primitive thermometers that had the error-prone linear scale. In modern times they now use the all new, computer controlled, error-correcting, exponentially scaled Hansenometer.
    When converting old, primitive, temperatures to the new improved scale, the obvious error readings are removed.

  4. johnmcguire says:

    Hey tckev , you don’t even have to buy the new Hansenometer to approximate the new temperatures either. All you have to remember is if the old temperature is higher you subtract 2 and then add 2 to the current temperature and you have the correct reading. Hey if that dunce hansen can do it , anybody can.

    Interesting that they have an error estimate for the adjustments of USHCN.

    Interesting link on the cdiac.orgl.gov site …

    We’d be naturally skeptical of a 99.9999% off sale, but we’ll easily swallow the concept of a 70% off clearance sale.

    The benevolent caretakers know this. They also know that people’s belief in global warming goes up and down with perceived temperature.

    For this reason, the adjustments to historical data weren’t extreme at first, or no one would believe them. A few tenths here, a few tenths there…

    Just a few more adjustments and they will achieve critical-mass-panic…
