Trenberth used this slide yesterday during his political rant in Boulder.
He didn’t show the same map from 2013, with 78% of the US below normal temeprature.
He didn’t mention that the thermometer data showed 2013 as tied for eighth coldest on record in the US. He didn’t mention that three other years averaged just as warm as 2012 before tampering.
He didn’t mention that the warmth of 2012 was primarily due to mild winter and spring temperatures, rather than summer heat. He didn’t mention that the summer of 2012 didn’t rank among the 10 hottest, and that the 10 hottest summers came below 350 PPM CO2.
He didn’t mention that east of the Rockies, the US is having its coldest year on record.
The purpose of his presentation was to mislead the people who pay his salary. Isn’t there a word for that?
The word Judy Curry used was “propaganda.”
