  1. And the US Extremes Index says Jan-March is one of the “most unextreme” on record!

    Well, yeah. I guess they’re still stuck in the global warming orientation. If things have cooled, they haven’t warmed. And if they haven’t warmed higher than average for that time span, the temperature change isn’t extreme. “most unextreme” is a way of saying “way, WAY lower than what we expected or what is useful for our polemics.”

    By summer all this will be adjusted to the hottest on record by the ministry of truth.

    • Marian says:

      Yeah. Or they will just ignore the 79% and claim the other 21% of temps were unprecedented. πŸ™‚

    • J Doug says:

      As Orwell put it:
      β€’ β€œDay by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary.” George Orwell

  4. And we’re also nearing the height of the Solar Max. I guess the glaciers will start moving this winter!

    Tweet, tweet.

    What a difference a year makes: As of 4-22: 2013 US hot temps broken 9931, cold 11041; in 2012 US hot temps broken 27,755, cold: 2,354

    It looks like the ‘climate’ is changing after all. πŸ˜‰

    Steve, As you repeatedly point out, the “adjustments” in the historical data end up corrupting it rather than correcting it. The current graphs, stories, of extremes, records, current deviations from averages, etc. all become moot because of the “adjustments”. That is a true travesty!

    Revising history leads to other “issues” like documented historical events like the Dust Bowl. You’ve done posts on it, but I don’t recall you using the ‘Climate at a Glance’ graphs found here:http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/

    Check out the “annual” temperature & precipitation for Oklahoma. You’d never know there was a Dust Bowl from that “adjusted” data. It would be interesting to see the same charts with raw, unadjusted data. Perhaps you’ve done it & I missed it when I searched.

    In 2084 … The Dust Bowl? Nah, never happened, just like the global cooling of the 1940-1970s never happened. All those pictures of the Dust Bowl? Nah, photoshopped.

    It’s clearly worse than we thought.
