In Hansen’s 1999 paper, he claims that he lowers Phoenix temperatures by nearly 3C due to UHI adjustments.
Sounds great – the only problem is that he doesn’t actually do what he says he does. Below is his current fully adjusted version of the Phoenix graph. It looks like he has actually been bumping temperatures up above what he was reporting as raw data in 1999.
It appears that he is ignoring the huge Urban Heat Island issue which he reported in 1999.

It is also curious how the raw data is higher now than it was 13 years ago. Perhaps Hansen went back in time and remeasured the temperatures.
Why am I no longer surprised by these revelations ? It’s because I now know that you can not trust any of the cagw activists that hold positions in the government . Not only that , my own observations have revealed to me that liberals will lie in a heartbeat . The people I know and associate with would not be able to sleep if they discovered they had mislead someone . “They would be looking for a way to let the others know the truth. I’ve not found that to be true with liberals as they think lying is accepable and a usefull tactic .
At the core of every leftist is a lie. They have lied to themselves for so long, that lying to others is now covered by the golden rule.
Be careful in condemnations, not all liberals are leftists, but all progressives are.
Honestly, I thought liberal and leftist were synonyms (the only distinction is that liberal carries a more upscale elitist sense; a ‘leftist’ may be more working class); so I’d think you could say: all leftists are not necessarily liberals [elitist leftists], but all liberals are leftists.
But, Gator, educate me if you can, then, what liberals are not leftists? And I don’t mean the classic 19th century “small L” liberals or whatever … you know, the liberal- (open) minded types.
Hey Eric! I am indeed referring to the classic ‘liberal’. As a Libertarian, I still know some of those rare breed, and they have not bought into the leftist lies. They prefer not to be lumped in with progressives, and true leftists.
You need no education from me.
Ok Gator, and I share with you the libertarian leaning, though I guess I’m not a “theoretical” libertarian that calls for a bare-bones military and doubly extreme cuts in govt. I just want extreme cuts in govt, that’s good enough for me.
I think we agree. I am a Libertarian that understands the necessity of a strong military to defend the liberties we enjoy, and a federal government that respects and supports individual freedoms.
I had that explained to me by a Liberal. Overlooking these things is for the “Greater Good.”
Another observation: every progressive I’ve faced has immediately informed me that he/she is an atheist and hates Christianity.
I believe this is a war of religion. The enviros have their dogma down pat – far more so than Christians do.
Too bad scientists are not held to the same high standards as bankers. Hansen would be Madoff’s prison bitch by now.
Nothing major here. Just more evidence that Hansen is consuming the excrement from NOAA and regurgitating it with only adding his digestive juices to the offal rather than sending it all the way through his digestive tract.
Hey Mike Davis!! Welcome back, as they say!
Exactly as you said… the “new” predictions of doom from the Chicken Little Brigade, are just regurgitated. Just warmed over, and here you add the appropriate term, offal. In case a reader doesn’t know what offal is, it’s, in a literal sense, organic waste as from the slaughter house: a mnemonic, think offal (pronounced AH-ful) is -awful- stuff.
Hansen’s own version of fight club with Hansen 2012 kicking his own 1999 ass.
Maybe someone can help me with what I am seeing. Looks like there were three breaks in readings in the latest adjustments perhaps due to change in location of reading, instrument change, time of day or whatever. In comparing the latest adjustments to the 3 degree drop graph, the 1925 break was followed by a downward trend, the 1960’s remained the same, and the 1990’s had a subsequent upward trend. Any comments or clarifications?
An interesting side note. As a teacher I am expected to be fluent in the new national standards. The Core Science standards came out last year, and AGW is embedded in them. National standardized tests will include climate change questions.
janef20–I am a retired physics, chem teacher.—– glad I do not have to deal with it. It has been depressing to see that human nature and methods of indoctrination have not improved since witchcraft, McCarthyism, eugenic beliefs and so much more. Forced to teach a subject and being allowed to give balanced info is one thing. National standard tests is quite another. Best wishes.
