I normally focus on NASA and NOAA altering the temperature record of the past 150 years, but once in a while it is a good idea to remember that the same alteration is being committed with the long term temperature record too. As of 1990, the IPCC showed that the MWP was much warmer than the 20th century.
It is well known that trees grew in Greenland when the Vikings lived there. Greenland is too cold for trees now.

The wineries of England competed with France at that time, but only the southern fringes of England are marginally suitable for wine production now.
But facts don’t matter in modern climate science. It is about keeping politicians like Barack Obama happy, so after the year 2000 they simply erased the MWP and created the hockey stick.
Reblogged this on the WeatherAction Blog.
It’s about to get real.
The lights are going out in Europe:
One of these days, and it won’t be long, we are going to pay, and pay big, for the dildanering of the leftist loons and effete sanctimonious know-it-all elitists that are working overtime to cut the legs off of our ability to produce our own energy.
Not to worry, Europe has renewables, solar and wind.
They will work in lieu of having actual natural gas fuel for power plants … right?
/sarc (if I need it)
LOL on that one!
Al Gore is coming to Melbourne Australia next week.
Gore effect alive and well.
Gore will be trying to save his carbon tax. Why is Australia so important to the alarmists muppets? We hardly make the news in Europe or the US.
Australia makes a nice test case for whatever evil idea is the latest craze. Implement it in Australia, find out what people will or will not stand for. Find out what methods people use for derailing or resisting what the Powers That Be desire. Think of Australia as the site for beta testing what TPTB want to do in the US and Europe.
Anyway, that is my theory of it…
Old link above. Current visit to Oz on one below.
I wonder if he has a work visa and pays tax on his earnings down here. Free training? My ass.
Cool I can lambast the moron.
This was before the IPCC had filled leadership positions with co-conspirators. They had to sort through and discard all the legitimate scientists and promote the activists into leadership.
I also like this story about the Mendenhall glacier. As it recedes, it reveals an ancient forest.
A number of us less technical types who had a reasonable overall view of history, geology, and sciences choked on the Hockey Stick. It simply rewrote too many easily checked FACTS!!! This was the point I started trying to find out what the heck was going on with Climate Science.
Would be interesting to hear candid excuses for why so many did NOT choke on the HS!!
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor
“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” – Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies
“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” – Professor Maurice King
_Jim calls us “Conspiracy Nuts” but Pascal Lamy let the cat out of the bag on what the goals are and how long those in power have been working towards those goals. Transnational corporations DO NOT like dealing with national borders and they do not want tariffs or quarantine (aka “trade barriers”) They also want captive labor and captive consumers so independent small farmers and business people have to be regulated out of existence.
Lamy is no light weight. He was former two term Director-General of the World Trade Organization and “A committed European and member of the French Socialist party, he was Chief of Staff for the President of the European Commission, Jacques Delors from 1985 to 1994. He then joined the Credit Lyonnais as CEO until 1999, before returning to Brussels as European Trade Commissioner until 2004…” ~ Pascal Lamy, Honorary president of Notre Europe Lamy is also one of the PES candidates for [EU] Commission President
This is what he has to say about “Global Warming” and you can connect the dots. Hopefully they are pretty darn clear.
GLOBAL Warming is a GLOBAL problem and is “a clear and compelling [reason] …why a new global order matters” GLOBAL Warming is the reason WHY the “sacrosanct principle of sovereignty” must be questioned and a ” new international order” using the EU as a template must be instituted.

Gail, I appreciate your analysis.
Thanks to Climategate, these folks are now trapped in a web of deceit of their own making, with essentially all the political power.
For the sake of society, skeptics need to identify a face-saving escape route for them.
It’s a far cry from simply citing the Bilderbergers and George H. Bush as the evil over the horizon versus showing documents and plans indicating a desire for global governance; at least you, Gail, provide some references to follow up on …
Gail and Jim,
Their own words identify the problem: Arrogance.
Meglomaniacal sociopaths but unfortunately very rich, very influencial, meglomaniacal sociopaths.
The survival instinct also controls the “very rich, very influencial,” Gail.
In August 1945 they used their wealth and influence to take totalitarian control of society to save themselves (and the rest of the world) from nuclear annihilation.
We might have done the same thing, if we were “very rich, very influencial”
The survival instinct converts everyone into “meglomaniacal sociopaths” in the face of death.
kuhnkat, yes, I choked on it as well. Not immediately though. It took a little while. At first, I honestly could not believe that it was as clearly wrong as it looked. I kept thinking, “Wait a minute… am I misinterpreting this? They can’t really be saying that the MWP never happened! And the Little Ice Age? That’s gone too? What am I missing? They CAN’T be that wrong!” Seriously, the Hockey Stick was so anti-historical that I could not take it in at first.
Actually, they really CAN’T be that wrong — at least not that wrong by accident!
Locating and reporting additional details on little-known events in late August 1945 may be the quickest way to restore credibility to science and integrity to constitutional government.
Climategate emails that surfaced in late Nov 2009 convincingly showed governments manipulating science.
Additional details are needed on the CHAOS and TERROR in August 1945 that scared world leaders into taking totalitarian control of society and making science a tool of propaganda.

Only by coincidence did I stumble on these little-known events of Aug 1945:
1. Japan had an atomic bomb plant at Konan, Korea.
2. Japan exploded an atomic bomb.
3. Stalin’s USSR troops captured that facility and possessed atomic bomb technology in August 1945.
4. USSR troops downed an American plane and captured the crew.
5. A copy of Japan’s plans for building atomic bombs went missing for the next fifty-seven years (2002 – 1945 = 57 yrs)
World leaders had legitimate reason to fear that nuclear energy might be uncontrollable in August 1945. We need to document that, forgive them for deceiving the public, and get back on track for using science to benefit mankind.

“little-known events in late August 1945”
They are quite well known events on this blog.
France has 836,000 hectares under vines (at No 3)
The UK are again threatening the French with 1,438 hectares.
A bit like the English cricket team. ROFLMAO.
Arctic Sea ice compare 2007 to 2014.
Can see where the big hole in 2007 was about to open up.
This year, no thin ice. Just very thick multi year ice.
Alarmists will need to find more excuses.
