Alarmists start many of their graphs close to 1979.

    Propaganda artists were well paid to “cherry pick” data after the end of the Second World War, when frightened world leaders:

    1. Formed the UN on 24 Oct 1945

    2. Hid information about Japan’s atomic bomb production in Konan, Korea and the capture of that facility by the USSR shortly after its first A-bomb test on 12 August 1945

    3. Hid knowledge of “powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction” [1] in cores of

    _ a.) Heavy atoms like U & Pu
    _ b.) Some planets like Jupiter
    _ c.) Ordinary stars like the Sun
    _ d.) Galaxies like the Milky Way

    To understand how “cherry picking” has put the survival of mankind at risk, study the last paragraph of F. W. Aston’s 1922 Nobel Prize lecture [1], P. K. Kuroda’s 1982 book on “The Origin of the Chemical Elements and the Oklo Phenomenon” [2], and Chapter 2 of my biography [3].


    1. F. W. Aston, “Mass spectra and isotopes,” Nobel Lecture (12 Dec 1922), last paragraph:
    “Should the research worker of the future discover some means of releasing this energy in a form which could be employed, the human race will have at its command powers beyond the dreams of scientific fiction; but the remote possibility must always be considered that the energy once liberated will be completely uncontrollable and by its intense violence detonate all neighbouring substances. In this event the whole of the hydrogen on the earth might be transformed at once and the success of the experiment published at large to the universe as a new star.”

    2. P. K. Kuroda, The Origin of the Chemical Elements and the Oklo Phenomenon (Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 1982) 165 pages:

    ….is this the result of global warming, global cooling, or climate change…..?

  3. Billy Liar says:

    No, it was just chance that satellites became available after 3 years of falling winter temperatures and in the year that all the Great Lakes froze over. 🙂

    Not only NSIDC, but DMI graphs as well. I would love the see the average ±1SD of the Arctic Ice Extent if the 1979 outlier were removed. Note, too, that 1979 was the culmination of three years downward temperature trend running. Start from 1980, and I would bet that the Arctic Ice Extent average ±1SD would not only look very different, but that today’s values would lie well within the limits of those data.

    • Send Al to the Pole says:

      And….. as we have all seen here, fraudulent “adjustments” account for all warming. Why should the ice extent be any different? How many times has the extent approached the mean only to jump away suddenly? At least a few I can remember.

      Tuscon is, of course, (in)famous for the weather-station-in-a-car-park at the esteemed climate department of the University of Arizona, headed up by the excreable Jonathan Overpeck.
      [I believe they have moved it now.]

    • Ernest Bush says:

      The operative phrase here is “according to the National Weather Service.” I would be suspicious of any such statement from that organization even if it supplied the correct data to prove it.

      It’s been a warm, wonderful Arizona winter. I haven’t been saying much about it since so much of the rest of the country has been hammered by bad weather – I didn’t want to seem like I was gloating!

      As far as climate change – it doesn’t mean squat. Some winters are like this one: absolutely gorgeous! I rained just yesterday, so the wildflowers will be spectacular this year, but even before the rains, wildflowers have already been spontaneously sprouting all over my property.

      Last year we had cold snaps that killed everyone’s ornamental landscaping plants – nothing like it this year. Maybe the coming summer will be super hot. That would be fun. It has been a long time since we had a really, really hot summer. Climate. Always a surprise.

      But so far it has been freaking phenomenally beautiful in Southern Arizona this season.

    Climate Drones have taken over the BOM and CSIRO in Australia.
    Publishing more rubbish in the lead up to the carbon tax repeal.

  6. Andy DC says:

    We had lots of satellites in the 1960’s. There is no valid reason to start your chart at 1979, except for accentuating warming from a very cold period.

  7. Karl says:

    We had satellites, but the technology was in its infant stage. Be that as it may, the reliable satellite records start coincidentally at the bottom of the trough in the last cool cycle.
